The Dietary Guidelines state that most people should replace at least two servings of meat per week with fish and seafood. Replacing all meat and poultry in a semi-vegetarian diet with fish and seafood helps to accomplish this. In addition, this serves as your second step toward adopting a fully vegetarian diet. With only one animal food group remaining, you can now drop the "semi-vegetarian" label and identify yourself as a "Pescatarian" or "pesco-vegetarian." This step has the added benefit of reducing your fat and caloric intake, as fish and vegetable protein sources are generally leaner than meat and poultry.

Many people lose weight when they transition to a vegan or vegetarian diet‐no counting calories or increase in activity required. In fact, research consistently shows that vegans and vegetarians weigh less than carnivores. That’s because a plant-based diet is rich in fiber from plant foods, and this nutrient has been linked with making you feel more satisfied after meals, as well as regulating blood glucose levels. A healthy plant‐based diet packed with whole grains, pulses, soy foods, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds is moderate in calories, which can contribute to a healthy weight.

Pay attention to ingredient lists, avoid products containing gelatin, rennet, and other animal products (excluding dairy and eggs). If you haven’t already, begin incorporating more whole grains, beans, legumes, tofu, nuts, and seeds into your diet. Once you feel comfortable to move forward you can start phasing out dairy, eggs, and honey. Feel free to do this all at once, one food group at a time, or as slowly as you need to. Slowly cut out animal products, starting with the easiest and leaving barrier foods to the end. Slowly lessen your consumption of animal products while simultaneously increasing the number of plant-based foods in your diet. Continue until you've eliminated all animal products from your diet.

A well-planned vegan diet that includes nutrient-rich whole and fortified foods can help provide adequate nutrient levels. Some vegans may find it difficult to eat enough of the nutrient-rich or fortified foods above to meet their daily requirements. In this case, the following supplements can be particularly beneficial: Vitamin B12 in cyanocobalamin form is the most studied and seems to work well for most people. Vitamin D: Opt for D2 or vegan D3 forms such as those manufactured by Nordic Naturals or Viridian.EPA and DHA: Sourced from algae oil. Iron: Should only be supplemented in the case of a documented deficiency. Ingesting too much iron from supplements can cause health complications and prevent the absorption of other nutrients.

Here are the most common types of vegetarian diets: A “strictly” vegetarian diet consists of plant-based foods, but may also include eggs and dairy. Typically no fish or meat of any kind will be included. When eggs and dairy products are included, it’s called an ovo-lacto vegetarian diet (hence the name ovo, as in “ovum,” and lacto, as in “lactation”). Pescatarian diets include fish and seafood along with a variety of plant foods (vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, beans, etc.). Most also include eggs and dairy but no poultry, beef or red meat, although it depends on the individual.

Lastly, omega-3 containing foods, especially those high in Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), can help the body produce longer-chain omega-3s such as Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). Foods high in ALA include chia, hemp, flaxseed, walnuts and soybeans. However, there is debate regarding whether this conversion is efficient enough to meet daily needs. Therefore, a daily intake of 200–300 mg of EPA and DHA from an algae oil supplement may be a safer way to prevent low levels.
