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.

Yet some vegetarians rely too heavily on processed foods, which can be high in calories, sugar, fat, and sodium. And they may not eat enough fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and calcium-rich foods, thus missing out on the nutrients they provide.

This is one thing I often have to remind myself of, as I often get into food ruts or habits. I make my green salads nearly the same way all the time, but really should be mixing it up. Thinly sliced leeks, chopped boiled beets, bell peppers of all colors and shredded carrots are great to toss into the mix.

Vitamin D also plays an important role in bone health. Vitamin D is added to cow's milk, some brands of soy and rice milk, and some cereals and margarine. Be sure to check food labels. If you don't eat enough fortified foods and have limited sun exposure, you may need a vitamin D supplement (one derived from plants).

Iodine is a component in thyroid hormones, which help regulate metabolism, growth, and function of key organs. Vegans may not get enough iodine and may be at risk of deficiency and possibly even a goiter. In addition, foods such as soybeans, cruciferous vegetables, and sweet potatoes may promote a goiter. However, just 1/4 teaspoon of iodized salt a day provides a significant amount of iodine.Getting started

Keep in mind that the more restrictive your diet is, the more challenging it can be to get all the nutrients you need. A vegan diet, for example, eliminates natural food sources of vitamin B-12, as well as milk products, which are good sources of calcium.

Do you have a crystal ball that can accurately predict the future? Neither do I. Neither does anyone offering diet advice. That’s why, when someone claims that you’ll lose a specific amount of weight—or even any weight at all—in a certain time frame, you should take that promise with a grain of salt.

If you feel like everyone’s a nutrition expert lately, you’re not alone. The sheer amount of diet tips and random nutrition advice online can be overwhelming and confusing, especially because a lot of the time it actually seems to make sense or come with enough anecdotal evidence and testimonials that it starts to feel pretty damn persuasive. The truth is that a lot of this advice is from people who, while eminently qualified to make choices for their own lives and bodies, may (OK, probably) are not qualified to be giving health advice to other people. I know, it’s really frustrating.
