    Help for a vegetarian??

    Hi, I am new to this...actually, I havent even started yet, but plan to this weekend. I am a vegetarian, I am having a hard time figuring out how to follow the protocall. I dont know what I CAN eat. What I eat now...tofu, morningstar, portabello mushrooms, eggs. I just need help because I don't know how much of each I can have?

    I'm not a "full" vegetarian, but since I don't really care for meats, I use Jay Robb's Whey Protein Shakes for protein and because it doesn't have any fats or sugars (except Stevia). I haven't gained any weight while using it either. I have 2 scoops per day on most days. Hope this helps if you don't really have time to cook or simply don't like to

    ...........I use it for my meals as well since I don't really take lunch to work and don't feel like cooking afterwards.

    There's a Vegetarian section in this forum, you should definitely check it out!

    Here is an excerpt from Linda Prinster's book that you may find helpful. FWIW, I occasionally have a Morningstar Farms Grillers Original burger (even tho I'm not a vegetarian) and I have had consistent losses when compared to chicken or beef.

    Dr. Simeons manuscript addresses the vegetarian issue as follows:

    “Many patients ask why eggs are not allowed. The contents of two good sized eggs are roughly equivalent to 100 grams of meat, but unfortunately the yolk contains a large amount of fat, which is undesirable. Very occasionally we allow egg - boiled, poached or raw - to patients who develop an aversion to meat, but in this case they must add the white of three eggs to the one they eat whole. In countries where cottage cheese made from skimmed milk is available 100 grams may occasionally be used instead of the meat, but no other cheeses are allowed.”

    “Strict vegetarians such as orthodox Hindus present a special problem, because milk and curds are the only animal protein they will eat. To supply them with sufficient protein of animal origin they must drink 500 cc. of skimmed milk per day, though part of this ration can be taken as curds. As far as fruit, vegetables and starch are concerned, their diet is the same as that of non-vegetarians; they cannot be allowed their usual intake of vegetable proteins from leguminous plants such as beans or from wheat or nuts, nor can they have their customary rice. In spite of these severe restrictions, their average loss is about half that of non-vegetarians, presumably owing to the sugar content.”

    With this in mind and taking into consideration the availability of new vegetarian products on the market today, Pounds and Inches Away has formulated the guidelines listed below. The nutritional facts of specific food products/brands should be analyzed to determine if calories, carbohydrates, sugar, fat, and protein are in range, and therefore, allowable on the very low calorie phase of the hcg protocol.

    Calories 80-120
    Carbs 0g-8g
    Sugars 0g-1g
    Fat 0g-5g
    Protein 8g-25g

    The following information is provided as substitute food sources, but these do not necessarily provide the typical results as when the regular HCG diet protocol is followed.


    The following supplemental, information has been gathered to try to provide specific alternatives for vegetarians. These options have been used relatively successfully by some vegetarian participants in place of 100 grams of meat. Soy milk, tofu, nuts and Ezekial bread was tried, with Ezekial bread being the best vegan food substitution. The reason for this is because the ingredients in Ezekiel bread closely parallel the protein found in milk and eggs, which contain all 9 essential amino acids. Plant based Ezekiel bread contains a total of 18 amino acids including essential amino acids that are not available in all meat. Another excellent vegan substitution you can also try is the super-food, quinoa.

    Product/Food groups allowed on the Vegan protocol (follow all recommended serving sizes on package):
    Ezekiel Bread
    GNC Pro Performanace AMP Amplified Whey Protein - Vanilla
    Pro Energy Natural Whey Protein Isolate - Vanilla
    Nasoya Organic Tofu: all plain forms, Chinese Spice, Garlic & Onion, all Lite forms, Silken
    MorningStar Farms Tomato & Basil Pizza Burgers
    MorningStar Farms Grillers Original
    MorningStar Farms Roasted Herb Chik'n
    MorningStar Farms Garden Veggie Patties

    Sample Menu:

    Breakfast: Tea in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk allowed in 24 hours. Stevia may be used as a sweetener.

    Lunch: Choose one item from each:
    1) One serving of meat replacement item listed above
    2) One type of vegetable only to be chosen from the following: spinach, chard, chircory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus and cabbage.
    3) One fruit of apple, or an orange, or a handful of strawberries or one half grapefruit.

    Dinner: The same three choices as Lunch.

    The juice of one lemon daily is allowed for all purposed. Salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, sweet basil, parsley, thyme, marjoram, etc. may be used for seasoning, but no oil, butter, or dressing.

    Tea, filtered, spring, or mineral water are the only drinks allowed, but they may be taken in any quantity and at all times.

    6/12/11 R2P2D1 = 208.2 (5lb load)
    7/14/11 R2P2D33 = 184.4 LDW
    R2 loss = 23.8 lbs

    8/29/11 R3P2D1 = 192.8 (6.6lb load)
    10/4/11 R3P2D37 = 171.4 LDW
    R3 loss = 21.4 lbs

    1/30/12 R4P2D1 = 193.6 (9 lb load)
    3/08/12 R4P2D36 = 168.2 LDW
    R4 loss = 25.4 lbs

    Total (net) loss in 4 rounds = 62.8 LBS!!

    Eventual Goal: 153.6 lbs, BMI 24.98, NORMAL!
