According to my Nut I need to get in 55 grams of protein a day and I have no problems getting that in nor am I worried about protein. Protein is pretty easy even if I decided to go completely vegan, which I am not. I don't think I can give up my milk completely. After a recent slight unfill, .2cc , I feel like I can eat most foods much much easier. This decision to go vegetarian is purely for health reasons, a very recent diagnosis of colon cancer in my Mom and my Dad, not to be out done, suffered 4 heart attacks. I myself was recently diagnosed with high cholestrol. So I can see the writing on the wall. I do not want to just wait for disease to strike, I want to do something now. So far it's going pretty good, I can't call myself a vegetarian but I am getting there. Thanks for your response.
