I've been vegetarian for 7 months. If I suddenly ate lean poultry at one meal, would my GI system suffer/hard time digesting it?
Vegetarian: Our bodies are designed to eat all types of foods. There are certain foods that may bother you after having changed your diet for so long but they are usually going to be things very high in fat. That would possibly give your system a bit of a shock. Not likely to be a problem with lean chicken or fish. Remember, strict vegetarians should supplement with vit B12 that only comes in meat. ...Read more

GERD: Gerd, or acid reflux, can be triggered by many different things. A healthy change in your diet would likely not cause this to occur, although it is possible.

Inadequate Diet?: John, it sounds as if your diet may be inadequate in terms of protein which is often a problem area for many vegetarians. Also you may benefit from more fat and complex carbs in your diet as well. Your symptoms could also be hypoglycemia as well. If you are a true vegan it is difficult to get enough protein especially. Lacto-ovo is much easier to get appropriate protein intake. ...Read more

Breast or bottle: I have concern when a vegan breast feeds a child because the breast milk may be quite deficient is those vegans that do not have balanced nutrition.

Soy formulas allow baby to stay vegan if mom desires. ...Read more

Registered Dietitian: Look for local registered dietitians that can help you put together the healthiest meal plan.
