It is possible to become a vegetarian at once, but a gradual change may work better for two reasons: First, a gradual change is more likely to become a lifestyle and a long-term move and second, a sudden dietary change can affect some people's digestive system at first. Changes to the gut Microbiome may lead to temporary bloating, for example. It may also take longer for muscles to repair, without animal protein. Gradually replacing meat with more vegetables, fruits, legumes, such as beans and lentils, and whole grains, may reduce this impact. Another idea is to start with familiar meat-free foods, such as macaroni cheese and salad, before changing to new recipes and ingredients.

Traditionally, research into vegetarianism focused mainly on potential nutritional deficiencies, but in recent years, the pendulum has swung the other way, and studies are confirming the health benefits of meat-free eating. Nowadays, plant-based eating is recognized as not only nutritionally sufficient but also as a way to reduce the risk for many chronic illnesses. According to the American Dietetic Association, "appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases."

It may seem challenging, as many vegan foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, are low in calories. However, if you add enough high-calorie vegan foods, such as beans, nuts, plant oils and soy products, and eat six to eight meals per day, you can find enough calories to fill your daily requirements.

An online calculator can help you determine how many calories you need to maintain your weight, depending on your age, gender, activity level, size and goals. To gain bulk, add another 250 to 500 healthy calories to this number.

That said, keep in mind that most of the studies supporting these benefits are observational. This makes it difficult to determine whether the vegan diet directly caused the benefits.Randomized controlled studies are needed before strong conclusions can be made.
