I'm just a little concerned about the "meat is bad cause it has proteins" line. Unfortunately you need protein (especially if you are exercising so you can build muscle, which is made of protein to my knowledge) so that line doesn't cut it, and protein comes in a number of sources, not just meat (eg, legumes, like beans and lentils). As a woman, you will also need iron, and if you're not getting it from meat, you need to get it from somewhere (and yes, there are vege sources, such as spinach - go popeye - and red kidney beans. But you need to know to combine them with vitamine C to aid it's absorbtion)
How do I know this? I grew up in a vegetarian household including 3 menstruating women and my mum runs a wholefood shop. My sis is still vegetarian and I prefer to be usually. Mum and dad are off and on.
My point is that there is a lot to eating healthily and you have to acknowledge that humans are omnivores and ergo designed to absorb some nutrients from meat that are good for you (although meat products would have been far less important in our diet previously). Most of us rely on these animal sources the majoriyy of the time and you need to find alternates if you eliminate meat from your diet.
