Hi, Guillermo,

How great that you want to go veg! Here's my two cents worth:

If you eat a lot of starches (grains, preferably whole, potatoes, yams, etc.), with some fruits and veggies on the side, you'll be incredibly healthy, and you don't have to worry about getting enough protein. This is the diet that most of the world has been living on throughout history. Take a B-12 vitamin after a few years of being vegetarian (it takes that long to deplete from the body), and keep the fat as low as possible (even "healthy" oils like olive ideally shouldn't be added at all).

Your weight and cholesterol levels will plummet, and you'll feel great. Drs. John McDougall, Dean Ornish, and Neal Barnard all have books and websites on why this works and how to do it.

Good luck! Keep us posted.
