Vegetarian diet anyone?



Recommended Posts

Have stopped eating meat...any one else a vegetarian out there? How do I keep low carb/ high Protein? I am still eating dairy and eggs! Advice?


Only thing I can think of is eggs and protein shakes.. Also, have you tried Fairlife milk ( 13 grams) and Special K protein Cereal ( 10 grams )? They also make a chocolate milk.

I was a lacto-ovo-peco-tarian ( a vegatarian who eats eggs, milk products, and fish) for a year. I got Protein from cottage cheese, greek yogurt, hummus, Peanut Butter, soy Beans, quinoa, and protien bars.

Everything KristyAB said. There is also a nut milk (cashew and almond) by Silk with 10g of Protein. eggs and dairy have a lot of protein. Grains like quinoa have a lot of protein. And of course, edamame, tofu, seitan, nut butters, Beans and hummus (from chickpeas.)

Totally doable. There are many of us here doing a more plant based diet. I don't worry about Protein and carbs, but I do have an egg and some cheese occasionally. I'm mostly doing vegan though.

There are a few threads under food and Nutrition:Vegetarian and Vegan Eating if you'd like to join and discuss.

I haven't been sleeved yet, but I used to be a vegan and plan on returning to it. For the first couple of months or first year i will probably be peco vegetarian. Vegetarian and vegan products have really bombarded the market. Vega has some great 20 gram Protein Shakes. There's a vegan Protein weight loss shake pgx satisfast with 20 grams. Garden of life has a whopping 28 grams. If whey is your thing body fortress has 30 grams for one scoop/ 60 for 2. All low carb/ low sugar. Hope this helps.

I'm 3 and 1/2 years out and vegan. No worries. Plenty of Protein. Plenty to eat. I'm at 110. I don't think I could gain weight if I tried. Not being vegan and doing it right.

Have you tried TVP ( textured vegetable protein)...... I made meatloaf with it three nights ago and my kids couldn't tell the difference. Tonight I am making chili with it. I don't think they'll be able to tell the difference with the chili either.

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.
