As many health benefits as there are to a veg diet, anyone who is just starting out must make the effort to do it properly. Eventually, it will become second nature. In the meantime, however, there's lots of learn.

Here's how your new food pyramid should look like:

Check out The Ultimate Vegan Guide's section on nutrition to ensure that your new diet is not deficient in any essential nutrients. This Vegetarian Starter Kit is loaded with info and will help you start your journey on the right foot. Veganessentials and iHerb are both great websites to get your supplements at cheap prices.

Lastly, just as with a non-veg diet, remember to keep deep fried foods and other junk foods to low levels. A veg diet will be healthier on average, but that doesn't mean that you should overload yourself on french fries!
