Protein: Protein, fats, and carbs, are the major nutrients to keep the body energized and healthy. Missing one of them is not good. You can get tired, weak, loose muscle mass. If you don't each much protein consider taking a protein shake each morning but things like eggs, cheese, nuts, etc. Are best.

I agree with this doctor's comment about B12 supplements for vegetarians. I am vegetarian. The best B12 way to take B12 is sublingual (under the tongue type).
