    Smile Vegetarian - New Lifestyle

    Evening all

    This is my first post to the site.

    I have decided it is time for me to go Vegetarian.

    Health wise and financially i think it makes more sense. I have an under active thyroid and struggle with my weight so i think this would help me cope a bit better.

    Would any of you lovely people be able to give me any tips on where to start?

    Do some research. If your not eating meat, you may need to add Vit B12 since your get it primarily from meat. Vit. D and Omega 3 also may need to be added.

    vegetarians can included seafood so I encourage you to do that so that you have enough protein and Omega 3 in your diet and prevent lowblood sugar.

    As you told that health wise you are not fit so you should take some doctor advice before changing anything in your diet. As you mentioned about underactive thyroid (which is the most probable reason of weight gain) so you need to be extra careful about your diet and health. If you still feel like going with vegetarian foods, then you can easily start from something like salads (that are high in protein and iron), fruits and green veggies.

    And to overcome from your weight problem you should go for exercises regularly and gym also if capable. But firstly do take care of the thyroid problem as it has many side effects on health and body in the form of fatigue, weakness, weight gain, hair loss, dry, rough & pale skin etc.

    Hope you get well soon. Good Luck.
