    Just speaking for myself, soy has not been an issue, and since the Quorn products are mycoprotein, they are soy-free. (For P2, I also did eggs & cottgae cheese and lost very well without supplementation with soy or other protein.) On a vegan HCG site, Sun Warrior is the shake of choice.

    By the way, you do not lose any ability to digest anything based on your diet. Your digestive system doesn't excrete anything more than marginally different based on your diet. There's no scientific basis for it. Anecdotally I've know tons of people that have been vegan or vegetarian for years and went right back to red meat either with only temporary problems, or with no ill effects at all.

    I don't know what PKU is. Yes I am using the Sun Warrior shakes on P2 and I really like them. I tried the HCG Coach steak pudding too and that was good as well as the spinach chips.. I tried some applegate sausage this round though but ate the whole box because of hunger so I do't know if with or without meat is better or not.

    I cannot have any of the vegan "meats" they ALL have wheat in them The only thing without wheat is Tempeh but since it is soy and I have had SO many issues with little cheats or even Big cheats I decided not to try soy for now. Plus I shouldn't have soy because I only have 1/2 a thyroid. My options are very limited.

    Tryingtomakeit: Thanks for your response; I hope this round is going easier for you.

    SOOOOOooo, the dreaded Steak Day. I've been wondering about it, but today, I have to DO it, cause I'm 2 pounds over LDW! Whaaaah.
    I have noticed three options for us: 1. Nothing to eat except one Steak Day Pudding (or smoothie variation) 2. 8-12 hardboiled eggs throughout the day 3. 3 meals of 2 apples and 2 oz of cheese.
    I think I'm going to try option 3 today--some swear by it--and I'll let you know the results.
    I was quite sensitive to TOM changes in P2, and I'm thinking it might have something to do with this 3 pound gain (I know! Whaaaa?!?!) overnight!! (TOM is supposed to show up within the week, yikes!)

    I'm interested in the apple and cheese day. Let us know how that goes.

    I tried the steak day pudding it taste like apple cinnamon, so I prefer it to steak but I did the P2 version so if I have to do a P3 steak day I will let you know how it goes. And follow ups How did your apple cheese day go? I can't have cheese so that's not an option for me nor can I have eggs

    Result? Positive--right back under LDW with the apple-cheese day. I was pleasantly suprised how much 2 oz of cheese was, and with nibbling slowly, I wasn't feeling deprived. But since I'm a curious type, I might try one of the other options if I were to have to perform another Steak Day.

    I would prefer to be vegetarian. Is tofu ok to eat in P2?

    Hey maggiesch,
    For p2, I stayed straight vegetarian protocol (1 egg + 3 whites one meal, cottage cheese for the other) so I have no experience with going rogue with the tofu--but others have--as well as Quorn mycoprotein & processed soy. Sorry I'm little help, but I had a good p2, if not a little boring.

It is far more convenient because all the nutritional information is provided on the packaging, easier to keep my calories down, less expensive, and there is no measuring on a scale. My only concern is getting the amount of protein necessary. I will average about 30grams of protein a day. I will keep you informed to see if there is any difference with results compared to a non vegetarian approach.
    Hello JudRa,
    Nice to read your post and the info about the foods you have posted is also some sort of good one and healthy one..... That's nice to share your experience with all the member's of the forum.... I am also a vegetarian and have the good and useful aspects of the fresh veggies....

    Hello to all. i am also a vegetarian and much careful about my diet. I think vegetable gives our body so much power and vitamins to be healthy. So we all should be use vegetables . i do not tell this that you only use vegetables you can use meat but also use vegetables.

    Its good to be veggie and i am also a veggie and love fresh vegetables and fruits. Because vegetables contain many minerals and all the necessary diet that a human body need to eat. I also prefer to eat vegetables but it doesn't mean that you don't eat meat. In fact mix diet is the best and complete diet and most probably vegetables.
