Like iron, zinc is not as easily absorbed from plant sources as it is from animal products. Cheese is a good option if you eat dairy products. Plant sources of zinc include whole grains, soy products, legumes, nuts, and wheat germ. Zinc is an essential component of many enzymes and plays a role in cell division and information of proteins.

Eating an adequate amount of protein is key for maintaining muscle mass, which helps keep your metabolism revved. It's possible to meet your daily protein needs on a plant-based diet. You just have to be strategic.One of my clients who was struggling to drop weight (and feeling tired all the time) after he went vegan was surprised to learn he was only consuming about half the protein he needed. Most vegans I work with need at least 60 grams of protein per day. But many don't know if they're hitting that quota.To make sure you're getting enough, try tracking your intake (even briefly) with an app like My Fitness Pal. Another strategy is to include more pulses (the umbrella term for beans, lentils, and peas) in your meals, since they are one of the best sources of plant protein. One cup of cooked lentils contains 17 grams of protein, compared to about 8 grams in a cup of cooked quinoa or a quarter cup of almonds. Whipping a plant-based powder (such as pea protein, made from yellow split peas) into a smoothie can also boost your intake, by as much as 25 grams per serving.

Similarly, try to avoid processed foods which contain high fructose corn syrup. If you start reading labels, you might be absolutely shocked to find out that this highly processed sugary junk gets slipped into nearly everything, from things that should be healthy - like whole-grain bread and even hummus - to nearly everything that comes in a bottle, including barbecue sauce and salad dressings.

Whether or not you're an everyday breakfast eater, a balanced morning meal is a great way to kickstart a healthy day, and getting enough protein is an important part of that balance. "Protein is a vital component to a healthy breakfast," says Jessica Jones, M.S., R.D., C.D.E. at Food Heaven Made Easy and co-author of the 28-Day Plant-Powered Health Reboot. "Research suggests that meals balanced with protein can help with satiety." Meaning, a protein-packed breakfast can keep you healthy and full until lunch.

Once you slice and sauté your way to a fabulous feast, you don't have to finish every bite. "We're conditioned to think that if we don't devour everything on our plate, we are misbehaving," McKenna says. But if you keep munching even after you're full, you are using your body as a storage unit. If left over for lunch tomorrow, pack it up and put it in the fridge. Otherwise, toss scraps in the trash. We promise we won't tell your mom.
