Our expert says:
I have not yet read Alicia Silverstone's "The Kind Diet", which I presume is about vegetarianism? I think that a vegetarian diet that still includes eggs, milk and dairy products is a healthy option and should not lead to any deficiencies or problems. If you decide to follow a strict vegetarian (no eggs or dairy) or a vegan diet, then you may need to take supplements of iron, zinc, calcium, vit B12 and even protein to ensure that you do not develop deficiencies.
