What is the healthiest way to become a vegetarian?

The ADA suggests the following tips for following a vegetarian diet:
  • Choose whole-grain products (e.g. whole wheat bread, brown rice, or whole-grain cereals instead of refined or white grains.
  • Eat a wide variety of foods.
  • If you eat dairy products, choose non-fat or low-fat varieties.
  • Use eggs in moderation.
  • Limit intake of sweets and high fat foods.
  • Use a regular source of vitamin B-12, and if sunlight exposure is limited, of vitamin D..
  • Many vegetarian foods can be found in any grocery store. Specialty food stores may carry some of the more uncommon items, as well as many vegetarian convenience foods.
