Can you be completely healthy as a vegetarian?

I've been vegetarian for many months now and I don't want to go back. I'm just wondering if you can be completely healthy without any extra supplements. Can you just eat the other food groups and be healthy, while getting protein from nuts, beans, eggs etc.??? Does your body really notice you're not getting meat?


Yes, you can definitely be completely healthy without meat. I've been vegetarian / vegan for under two years and my health has not changed at all. If you want to be sure, I would revoked using an app to track what you eat to be sure you get all the right nutrients, but I just wing it and it's worked so far


sure you can. Your body gets protein all the time and that is what is primarily in meat. You are also getting other meat like nutrients by eating eggs and dairy products which are on a vegetarian diet. Your body recognizes nutrients, not the sources.


Yes, and vegan. No doctor I've seen has ever given me a problem about my diet.

Yes you can. Just make sure you get everything you need from your food. Your body doesn't really notice if you're eating things like eggs. (eggs have most of the same stuff that's in meat, anyway)


I think it’s possible, just as long as you try to stick to a good diet plan. As long as you eat the necessary food groups, I think you’ll be ok. Greek yogurt is also a good source of protein. You could talk to a doctor if you have any uncertainties.


If you look after yourself and be aware of what you’re taking in you won’t need supplements. For example set yourself a protein, iron, B12 and calcium goal per day. I’ve been a vegan for almost 6 years and I find I need to take iron or I get a bit tired and I could include more iron heavy foods such as spinach to help me out but I’d rather take the tablets. Hope this helps
