Welcome Shay. I know what you mean about meat eating family members. I am 90% vegan and my husband is an omnivore. He is supportive of my choice though and defends it with other family members and friends. He has seen my health improve since I quit eating meat. He even forgoes eating meat 2 nights a week now and eats what I cook for myself. I am careful to make sure that the meals are tasty on those nights and made with his favorite veggies.

emoticon to the team! Good books to read to get you on the right track nutritionally are The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and The Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn. Both have excellent websites you might want to check out and the Engine 2 has a 28-Day Diet program to get you started.

My daughter just made ambrosia with pineapple, mandarin oranges, cashew crème and coconut.
It's actually really good. and I don't like regular ambrosia.

Welcome to the team Shay. You'll figure this out quickly - it's not that complicated and there's loads of info here. A lot of folks here have to deal with non-supportive family members. So you'll get support about that.

You're gonna love this way of eating. There's also a lot of info to read that will show you that the whole anti-carb perspective is false.

I recommend that you explore drmcdougall.com and there are others wher eyou can start to learn how starches are your friend, but added fat is not.

I've been amazed because I was just like you loved starches and sweets. But now I've lost a lot of weight by eating - Gasp - loads of potatoes and other starches. And when I eat enough, I don't even want sweets. You're going to be very pleased!

Hi, My name is Shay. I'm new to this forum and honestly I'm new to vegetarianism. I've always wanted to be a vegetarian, but I come from a family of not so supportive meat eaters. So, I will definitely need y'all help as I make the transition from former meat eater to vegetarian,(in addition to my weight loss journey). My biggest concern is that in my attempt to become a vegetarian, I'll end up gaining weight because I'll fill up on carbs and sweets ( my weakness).
