Eating vegetables provides the body with cancer-fighting phytonutrients and health-boosting vitamins and minerals. They contain no fat, are low calorie, and are a good source of complex carbohydrates which keeps your blood sugar levels stable. There are different reasons people choose to eat a plant-based diet. Some people feel a moral responsibility to refrain from eating animals. Others feel that it is healthier to avoid meat and mainly eat vegetables. Converting to vegetarianism can seem daunting but it doesn't have to be.


1. List Your Reasons

Becoming a vegetarian requires you to go through a substantial period of change. It is important to know exactly why you want to make this transition and thinking about it ahead of time can help build resolve and willpower. It is a good idea to write down your reasons both to gather your thoughts and to have something you can look at later. If you are clear-headed going in, the rest of the process will be smooth sailing.
