49. It helps if you're young and fanatical, but it's not required
and the transition can be a lot easier now than it was in the 60s and 70s when I did it.

Your best bet at satisfying that meat Jones lies in the frozen foods case at the health food store. Quorn products will kill the fried chicken and Buffalo wings Jones. Boca Burgers will kill the burger joint Jones. There is even a Smart Foods for steak strip/fajita and chicken strip lovers. Tofu hot dogs have come a very long way from their earliest incarnations and now even kids are fooled. Eventually you'll use the processed food substitutes rarely. They can just be a big help in the beginning.

The best way to make the transition is gradually, IMO, starting with meatless days every week and increasing those days until meat is a thing of the past. That gives you a chance to alter your cooking, your food stocks in the kitchen, and your palate.

Finally, be clear on why you're making the change. "Should" and "ought" are insufficient reasons and won't stand up for the long haul.
