Comments for proposed vegetarian diet

(i've posted a sample day of my proposed diet on the 3rd post in this thread. would appreciate comments and suggestions. thanks!)

Hi

I'm needing a bit of help with meals for a cutting diet. Could any of you give me some sample meals that I could eat in a 1200 calorie diet? I've read the vegetarian article on this site but it was for muscle gain.

I eat products with egg in them but can't bring myself to cook with eggs (just something I haven't been able to do since being vegan in the past).

I like every food except olives so I'm happy to receive any suggestions at all. Currently my diet isn't great and needs a total over-haul so there's no point in me posting it

Thanks to anyone who can help at all.

    ok i've come up with this. i would appreciate any comments/improvements. my goal is to lose fat (and keep as much muscle as possible).

    i take a type of ECA stack with 25mg of ephedrine 3 times a day.

    Breakfast: cereal (corn flakes or weetabix usually) with 250ml skimmed milk
    Protein: 13g
    Carbs: 69g
    Calories: 336

    Snack: yogurt & walnuts
    Protein: 7g
    Carbs: 13g
    Fat: 7g
    Calories: 135

    Lunch: 100g quorn & salad & 25g houmous
    (salad consisting of various leafy green veg [spinach, rocket, lettuce etc], baby tomatoes, cucumber, red pepper, red onion, carrot)
    Protein: 22g
    Carbs: 18g
    Fat: 7g
    Calories: 214

    Snack: Protein shake
    Protein: 22g
    Calories: 92

    Dinner: Tofu OR Quorn with veg stir-fry & black bean sauce
    Protein: 22g
    Carbs: 19g
    Fat: 25g
    Calories: 380

    Snack: 100g cottage cheese & slice of pineapple
    Protein: 10g
    Carbs: 17g
    Fat: 2g
    Calories: 120

    Totals
    Protein: 96g
    Carbs: 136
    Fat: 43g
    Calories: 1277

    Ratios [C:P:F]: 40:30:30 (approx)

    That's about as good as I can do. I know my breakfast is a bit crap and a bit big but i love cereal in the morning and I could eat for britain when I wake . I could easily eat constantly all morning

    I wanna add flax oil to my diet but I can't STAND the taste of it. I've tried it mixed in quark and just couldn't bare it. I'd take capsules but I can't afford them cos you need to take about 10 x 1000mg capsules each day. Any suggestions for omega 3 fats?

    Also, would i benefit from adding any other supplements apart from a multi-vitamin? What about L Glutamine?

    Thanks for any suggestions

    It may have been rancid (oxidised) due to poor storage. It must be kept refrigerated after opening.

    Some people have reported that H & B flaxseed oil tastes rank for this reason.

    Have you tried Granovita organic cold-pressed flaxseed oil from Sainsbury's?

    i was thinking that might have been the case even tho i kept it refrigerated. BUT it was H&B stuff so maybe that's why - thanks for the info about that. it was seriously rotten tasting! i'm sure my own sh1t would taste nicer than what that did! and then i read some recipes with flax seed oil saying it adds a nice nutty taste to the recipe! what?? i guess mine was rancid

    i've not tried granovita but i will look out for it. i saw one online by... i think they were called Stone Mills and it seemed good value so was gonna try it. do you know if it?

    thanks for your comments!

    Try TVP.

    It's 50% protein (dry weight), less than 1% fat and not much carbs. You can make great chilli, bolognese, shepherd's pie etc. with it.

    It's a hell of a lot cheaper than Quorn too.


    Also, are you very small? Cos 96g of protein a day seems like much too little.

    where can i get tvp?

    96g of protein is about as much as i can manage with a low calorie diet i think.

    ..Sure, as long as you haven't got much muscle that you want to maintain.

    You can get TVP from Indian cash'n'carries, where it's really cheap, or you can get it from Holland and Barrett, where it's about £1.20 a bag. They also sell savoury flavoured stuff, which is tasty and means you don't need to add so much of your own flavouring (it is naturally quite bland, but reacts well to being flavoured).
