Hi All,

As you provide nutrition advice and counseling, remember these points:

1) the client's needs and desires are more important than our views on whether they should be vegetarian
2) incremental change is usually the proper approach because most people are more comfortable this way and it's more likely to be sustained over the long term vs. huge changes.

Therefore, focus on encouraging your clients to eat more fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains and nuts. Make specific recommendations of replacing X food with Y food.

Remember, bring your client along like the path of dietary change like the tortoise, not the hare. Slow and steady will win the race.
