I'm a veggie but I'm not very "strict" about it (I do eat dairy products and sometimes eat fish), how strict a vegetarian do you want to be? I can give you general advice on stuff to try but I'm not really "up" on the dietary side of things.

Be sure to check the ingredients on the prepared foods that you buy. Many are prepared with eggs, milk-byproducts, or rendered animal fat, even though they aren't specifically "meat." Bakery goods, breads, and even gelatins have these ingredients, so check the label before you buy. And when in doubt, don't.

Who cares? Eat meat. Every living organism on this planet eats other live animals/people/whatever to survive. It's apart of nature.

I was a vegetarian for ten years when I was younger. It did wonders for my health. I was a somewhat obese child and I lost a whole lot of weight...which did wonders for my self esteem...and I was really in to the whole animal rights thing etc...
Around my early 20's my (already lousy) short term memory got really bad..possibly because I was not getting enough of certain vitamins...I gradually fell off the wagon..first with fish..then with chicken soup...then I became a hard-core fajita addict...and gained alot of weight really fast.
Since then, I have been an on-again-off-again vegetarian...and am currently "on"...Have not been able to keep it up like I did for those ten years...I go through spurts of several months then slip up..
I don't intend to eat meat anytime soon, and am working on cutting out dairy.
I do have to keep up with my omegas though...or else...

I been a vegetarian since July of 2007 and still going strong...
Here's a bunch of websites to help you on becoming a vegetarian....actually I deleted most of the sites I knew...do not too many...
veggieboards.com- forum for people who are vegatarians, vegans, and raw foodists
mypyramid.gov- has some tips on what to eat
Go slow...don't go cold turky and watch your soy intake, it's not clear what its effect on females are...Nuts and seeds are a very good snack...don't think to sub a "meat" soy product for meat, experiment with bean and other foods...If you want to, you can pm me...
