    Thumbs up

    Hello, I am a vegetarian too! I have had great success eating the vegetarian sausage patties made by Morning Star Farms on phase 2. They have 10 grams of protein, low calorie and taste pretty good. I also eat several of the veggies that are not on the original protocol. This will be my last round. I start phase 2 tomorrow and have 10lbs left to lose! I hope you have great success too!

    Hi,

    I've been a veggie for almost 20 yrs and was determined to do this diet as a veggie....glad I'm not alone! I depended heavily on rice protein powders for my first round. I would make up 2 batches of rice protein shake for my portions of protein and then I'd make my veggies. I went 25 days and lost 27lbs. Now, I know in the old forum that some vegetarians relied on a product called "quorn" and qunioa but I don't eat eggs (in quorn) and quinoa makes me gain weight the way rice does. Not sure if you can easily find rice protein powders in Ecuador BUT there are companies such as iherb.com that will ship internationally. I think burgers wouldn't work well because they tend to be high in starch/wheat gluten which you are supposed to avoid on P2, but I have never tried them on P2 so I am not speaking from experience, just in theory!

    When I ended my first round, I never went back to eating processed food and I stayed away from grains because grains have always left me hungry for more carbos and cause me to gain. Instead I chose a higher protein/fat diet and continued to lose (w/exercise) weight well into P4 w/out feeling hungry

    I'm in the middle of my second round now. I use rice protein powders still but have gone a bit rogue w/my veggies...I eat cauli/broccoli and zucchini/summer squash and I mix them but I'm exercising on this round so that seems to offset the rogue stuff...

    Anyway, just wanted to say you CAN do this diet as a veggie and as w/people w/other eating styles, vegetarians can re create their diets and you will want to when you get to the end of round 2!

    ¡buena suerte!

    I am also a vegetarian doing my first round of P2. You can use eggs (one whole plus three whites), .5 cup cottage cheese, nonfat sugar-free yogurt or 8 oz nonfat milk to replace a serving of protein.
