suggested to create a blog entry to provide advices about becoming a veggie.
If you want to share your stories and tips, comment here and they'll be added to this entry ! AnotherYaoiFreakYou 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!
by Dracirtake 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.

by SinastaEzekeiasMy 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
