I would like to become a vegan. What approach do you recommend? How should I make up the dietary deficiencies, if any?
That's a bigger question than I can answer here. The problem is that there are many ways to go as Vegan.
- Raw food
* Modified Mediterranean
* Indian vegetarian
* No grain
The deficiencies are different depending on which way you go. Your best bet is to find a version you like, then find a book that walks you through that particular version, as it is likely to address any possible deficiencies associated with that particular version.
PS: A book that I usually recommend is Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman. Except for Dr. Fuhrman's lack of recognition of the importance of good fats, I like his approach.
