I am a vegetarian thinking about eating meat again!

Friday, December 07, 2012

I have been a vegetarian for over 25 years. Today I thought that I am a carb crazed nut trying to get food in. I thought if I had some kind of turkey or chicken maybe the protein will help my weight loss? I do eat three types of fish currently yet not often. Your thoughts. emoticon

    My little one is a vegetarian and every now and then she adds a little meat to her menu plan. She does a wonderful job with beans/lentils that give her a wonderful supply of protein and fiber and she adds actual meat for other nutrients that she feels are not readily available (she's not a pill taker, as such supplements are part of her plan). Seeing how well she does, I would say go for it, but as with anything monitor your food to see how much is really necessary to make sure you're getting all the nutrients you need. It can be done, and she stays very fit. emoticon emoticon

    Well, it all depends on the reasons why you chose to go vegeterian in the first place. I guess adding white meat will help with weight loss. I eat mostly fish and white meat and I feel full longer

    I think eating chicken & turkey are good choices! Do you eat tofu or beans as other means for protein?

    I eat only fish and fowl and it works just fine for me. Try it and see if the results are what you're looking for. You'll find a lot of suggestions and information from your other vegan friends as well. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
