    Steak Day Alternative for Vegetarian Dieters

    To deal with the sudden weight gain during the stabilization phase, Dr. Simeons suggested
    Steak Day, which includes fasting for the whole day and a large steak cooked in oil or butter with an apple or a raw tomato in the dinner. However, the vegetarians have other options to substitute the steak. They can incorporate non-flavored pea protein powder burgers-with quinoa, and something to bind it. Tofutti sour cream can serve as a good binder, with olive oil and seasoning mix without sugar. Otherwise, the vegetarians can use olive oil, (or coconut oil), and liquid smoke, seasoning, and organic salsa. Miracle noodles/ magic noodles can be another alternative.

    I wish I had found this portion of the forum sooner! I was following a vegan diet before I started hhcg and have been eating meat to get the protein that I needed. My plan was to return to my vegan diet once hcg is over. thank you in advance for not judging! it felt sorta weird to give up what I belive in, in order to get healthier. I'm afraid to make the switch to vegan hhcg during this round, but I will certainly do it on R2. Thanks ladies!

    I am really enjoying it!!!! I have done it before and ate meat but I find this time soooooo much easier. Plus, I get a little more food I have to get my calories/protein in!!!!! I do eat eggs because I feel weird about eating two servings of soy or processed protein a day. I usually, substitute 1 protein w/ eggs, protein shake, or cottage cheese. If my protein is low than I will eat cabbage- I heard it has extra protein.

    Have you seen "The future of our Food"? It talks about one of the main soybean providers Monsanto. They are GMO's (Genetically Modified) and the way the got it that way and what their ethics as a company are. Definantely worth watching.

    There is so little info out there for this diet and being Vegan yet the diet works so well I can't imagine doing any other diet ever again. Without knowledge knowing how to do it vegan first it is near impossible to do it on your own vegan so your decision to eat meat is nothing for anyone to frown on plus the choice on whether or not to eat meat is truly a personal decision. So don't beat yourself up over this or think anything negative you are doing good.

    @tryto thanks...for not judging! After I figure it out with meat, then I will play around doing it vegan or vegetarian in future rounds. My weightloss has been disappointing so far, so I would be afraid to change it up incase it gets more disappointing! Now that I am 'in it' I can see what I will need to do in the future : )

    Monsanto is one of the worst companies out there for modifying food. Have you seen the organic consumer society website?? if not you should check them out! They are constantly battling Monsanto. Monsanto has some really bad, sketchy business practices. They also are linked to 'Round-up' the weed killer. Monsanto changes their seeds to be on suseptable to 'round up' so no other weed killers will work. (no that you should be using those anyway, but the point is still the same) big business in America is killing 'real food'!!!

    Oh I know and it is amazing how many things we unknowingly eat made by them. If it is not found at a natural food and has soy it is GMO same with Corn.

    YES!! That's the reason why before I started the hCG protocol... I would ONLY eat things made of corn that were 100% organic and labeled GMO free. (down to organic popcorn!)

    The soy issue is another problem... it's in so many things... and it scares me to think that the manufacturers don't need to list certain ingredients if it's below a certain %. That's just wrong.

    That reminds me of a good website I found http://glutenfreesoyfreevegan.wordpress.com/ That is me, mostly; some soy but rarely. I just bought some Non GMO corn chips Kettle Chips Brand I want to try when I can. I wonder if my corn sensitivities is only with the GMO kind.
