      With more than 67 percent of Americans now categorized as overweight
      or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and
      Prevention, many people are searching for ways to lighten up and
      become healthier. Studies find that going vegetarian can be a step in
      the right direction.

      Vegetarians tend to live longer and have lower risk of heart disease,
      diabetes and cancer, according to research by the Academy of
      Dietetics and Nutrition, and as a group they weigh less and gain less
      weight over time. Even eating vegetarian part of the time can lead to
      improvements in health and get the needle on the scale moving in the
      right direction, a five- year study by Cancer Research UK found.

      Anyone interested in vegetarian eating should check out Tuesday’s ABC
      health tweet chat moderated by Dr. Richard Besser, ABC News’ chief
      health and medical correspondent. Besser, along with Whole Foods, the
      Center for Science in the Public Interest, registered dietitians,
      bloggers, and other veggie lovers, tweeted out great tips and
      information to help anyone become a healthy, happy vegetarian.

      Below are highlights from Tuesday’s tweet chat, as well as some
      recipes, tips and advice from our participants. Enjoy!
