Many people choose to reduce the amount of meat, fish and other animal foods in their diets in order to lower their carbon footprints. Plant foods are “lower on the food chain” and require less natural resources, such as water and others, to produce. According to a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, manufacturing animal foods requires a higher proportion of water, land, fossil fuels and energy than most plant foods do.

Keep in mind that it's typically recommended to supplement with higher amounts of vitamin B12 than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), as your body is only able to absorb a small amount at a time.Try to aim for 2,000–2,500 mcg of vitamin B12 per week. This can be divided into several smaller doses and may require a separate supplement in addition to your multivitamin. You may also want to consider taking algal oil, a plant-based form of omega-3 fatty acid. Your body needs this kind of fat for optimal heart health, brain function, and disease prevention.

Different types of vegetarian eat different things.Lacto-ovo-vegetarians avoid the flesh of all animals, both meat and fish.Pescatarian eat fish but no meat. Lacto-vegetarians consume dairy products but no eggs.Ovo-vegetarians consume eggs but no dairy.Vegans avoid all animal-based foods, including honey. Some people call themselves "semi-vegetarian," but most vegetarian and vegan societies do not accept this term. A vegetarian needs to make careful choices about their diet, and to eat a wide variety of foods to ensure that they meet their nutritional requirements. Some vegans may need to take supplements.

Some vegans choose to take things a step further and stick with to a mostly "raw food diet.” Going on a purely raw diet may sound a bit extreme, but if you look at the food most people tend to eat all the time, you’ll realize that adding raw food to your diet may be beneficial to your body and overall health. Note, however, that folks dealing with digestive issues, such as leaky gut syndrome, are best keeping raw foods to a minimum. So which type of vegetarian or plant-based diet is healthiest? As a vegetarian or Pescatarian you’re able to get plenty of amino acids and vitamin B12 without supplementation, so I prefer those approaches to being a vegan. If you are a vegan, I strongly suggest you supplement with vitamin B12 and consume plant-based protein powder daily. Additionally, be sure to get plenty of nuts, seeds, mushrooms, beans, seaweed and higher protein grains like quinoa in your diet.

The American Dietetic Association has these tips for people who want to stop eating meat: Choose whole‐grain products, such as whole-wheat bread, wild or brown rice, and whole-grain cereals. Follow a varied diet, with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and so on. Use eggs and dairy products in moderation, if at all. Have a regular source of vitamin B12. Ensure a sufficient intake of vitamin D, especially if exposure to sunlight is low. They also suggest reducing the intake of high‐sugar and high-fat foods, especially trans-fats.

Although vegan diets are generally low in saturated fat, as a full-time vegan you may be missing out on the potent forms of heart-friendly omega-3 fats, known as EPA and DHA. We typically get these from fish and seafood, although sea vegetables such as kelp and certain micro-algae supplements can make a useful contribution. It’s also a good idea to include plenty of nuts, seeds and their oils especially walnut, flaxseed, hemp and rapeseed. Pack your lunch with a combination of carbohydrate-rich foods for energy and satisfying protein from foods such as nuts, seeds, beans and pulses. The key is to choose carbohydrates that produce a steady rise in blood sugar, which means passing on the sugary 'white' foods and going for high-fiber wholegrain, which help you manage those afternoon munchies.

In a 2005 study of vegetarian diets, researchers found that the closer to fully plant-based the subjects diets were, the more likely they were to have a normal body-mass index and healthy body weight. While vegans had a “significantly lower risk of overweight or obesity” (defined as a BMI of 25 or higher), even part-time vegetarians were 11 percent more likely than omnivores to have a healthy BMI. And while BMI is not the most reliable tool of measuring health, the Adventist Health Study — published in 2013, with more than 71,000 participants — found that across the board, omnivores had the highest BMIs, while vegetarian's were lower, and vegans/strict vegetarians were again the lowest.

According to research published by the Department of Nutrition, School of Public Health at Loma Linda University, people who follow a vegetarian diet or vegan diet — meaning they avoid all meat and possibly dairy, fish and eggs too — represent between 2 percent to 5 percent of the total adult population in the United States. Several analyses that have compared vegetarian diets to non‐vegetarian diets have found that those eating predominately plant-based diets have increased protection against health problems, including cardiovascular diseases, cardiometabolic risk factors, some cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity and total mortality.
