If you're going vegetarian for health reasons, I sure hope you know what you're doing. If you're not completely committed or you don't have a specific diet planned out to satisfy all your body's nutritional needs you're going to end up horribly weak and sicker than you've ever been.

I've toyed with the idea of completely giving meat up, but I stick with meat for my health. You can live a healthy life as a vegetarian, but holy fuck is it going to be time-consuming and difficult. Personally, I'd say cutting down your meat consumption is a much better idea than completely giving it up if you want to improve your health, but to each their own.
True, it requires a bit more care, but so far, I haven't been hungry, I've had more energy than I did even a week ago, and my blood sugar and blood pressure are still lowering at a steady pace. Plus, I have taken great care to memorize daily nutritional requirements, adjusting as necessary. I don't usually half-ass anything.
Make sure you get complete proteins.
