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.

Sure, there will always be people who can’t tolerate certain foods. Most of us, however, don’t have a problem with the lectins in legumes, the gluten in grains, and the sugar in a reasonable amount of fruit. Cutting those healthy foods out of your diet because someone has scared you into not eating them is unnecessary and unfortunate. The more full-of-whole-foods your diet is, the healthier it is, and the easier it is to maintain. Plus, physical health is one thing, but how about your emotional health? What’s a restrictive diet costing you emotionally? Is it preventing you from living the parts of your life that you enjoy, such as spending meals with friends and family? Is it causing you anxiety and guilt about food and eating? This is also relevant to health and wellness, so if you’re following an eating plan you feel is costing you big emotionally, it’s time to step back.

Iron is a crucial component of red blood cells. Dried beans and peas, lentils, enriched cereals, whole-grain products, dark leafy green vegetables, and dried fruit are good sources of iron. Because iron isn't as easily absorbed from plant sources, the recommended intake of iron for vegetarians is almost double that recommended for nonvegetarians. To help your body absorb iron, eat foods rich in vitamin C, such as strawberries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, cabbage, and broccoli, at the same time as you're eating iron-containing foods.

We’re all different in terms of genetics, life circumstances, activity levels, and preferences. Those variables make it impossible to project how much weight you’ll lose as a result of an intervention, even if other people (or even if you) have lost weight from that same (or any) intervention in the past. Ignore “pounds you’ll lose” promises, and focus on how healthy and complete an eating plan is. Just as important, pay attention to how it will make you feel. Is it restrictive? Sustainable? Does it teach you how to prepare and portion food? Does it emphasize fresh, whole foods? If something is just for quick weight loss or it seems too good to be true, that’s a big red flag.
