You can also talk to a nutritionist ^^!
I talked to my doctor about it when I had stopped eating red meat and pork, at that time he was worried about my iron intake since it was low. After three sessions with a nutritionnist, I am now, able to eat properly without missing out on anything. It was 7 years ago though... But once a year I go in for bloodtests to make sure I am doing just fine ^^! People are there to help you just have to look for them =3!
take your time, make it step by step. The more recipes you try, experiment, like, the more you will get there(eating a raw apple is kind of a recipe...).
It toke me about half a eat to get from trying to have more vegies to not buying meat, (i do cheat once per month for fish).
I have now 6-7 books on vegan/vege and now 1 for raw diet.
Becoming vegan (www.amazon.ca/Becoming-Vegan-C…) is a great book, explain a lot about what you have to watch out.
I can promise you that veganism and vegetarianism is EASY! I've lived my vegan life with no problems at all. To add to what I've already said - If you need a source of great and varied recipies then head over to Vegweb - www.vegweb.com

My advice would be to just remember the cause. Health not only for you but animals world wide. There are so many meat substitues and to know you made a differance, can make a defferance. You've just got to keep a good mind and remember youre doing something big by doing something little. like ordering cheese pizza instead of pepperoni [:
If you're vegan, don't hesitate to ask a pizza with only vegetables and no cheese, they can do this, the customer is king, never forget it
