Welcome -

Congratulations on taking your health & future into your own hands. I recommend you consider watching the following documentaries, they are available through Netflex, and Red Box: Forks Over Knives & The Engine 2 Diet, Food Matters. Another that is available for free through Hulu is Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. This one is close to the message suggested below to the 80/10/10 diet.

Good Luck!!

Lots of fresh fruits and veggies will give you tons of energy. Fats, in any form, slow down and/or blocks absorption of these good carbs by your body. Trust me! I have crashed several times because of it!

Karen is right, getting the processed, salty food out of your diet is a biggy.

Welcome to the team!

Welcome! Id recommend cutting out dairy and cheese and salty foods and also processed snacks. That would start you off in the right direction.

I'm with ya! As far as knowing how to be healthy and not gain weight while being a vegetarian. I am new to this and am just starting out. Carbs and starchy foods have been uncomfortable for me in my diet for a long time so transitioning to eating those for energy and fullness is difficult. I afraid it is making me gain weight. I need to know the healthy balance for optimum energy and cleanliness.
