3)What does "major disadvantages" mean in this context? If you choose to give up meat dairy and eggs, you want to be fully prepared for any possible drawbacks to this new lifestyle. One of major disadvantages for many vegetarians is how vegetarianism affects other areas of their lives. For instance, they may have a harder time grocery shopping or eating out. 1) Could "to be fully prepared for" be interchangeable with "to be fully ready for"? 2)Drawbacks means "flaws"? 3)What does "major disadvantages" mean in this context? Please help me!! Thanks!^ ^

1) Yes. In this context, you want to know in advance, be fully aware of, ready for. 2) A drawback is a downside or a problem. Basically, something that makes something less acceptable or compelling. 3) It can be taken as "one of the harder aspects of", or "one of the challenges".
