A lot of information is out there on how to eat a healthy plant based diet without focusing on any one thing like protein. Learn what you can about eating healthy, make good choices for yourself, and let the not so good stuff fall away. Vegetarians come in many hues, welcome aboard. It's more of a process than a destination.

The research shows that people who track their food intake are more likely to lose weight. So, yes.
Another benefit is that it recording what you eat will help to identify any issues that arise as your diet changes, and people here can provide more specific advice. Win win.

I can suggest you stop worrying about protein. Eat a variety of whole foods such as root vegetables, leafy greens, fruit, legumes, mushrooms, also nuts and grains in moderation and the protein in your diet will balance out to something like a natural level. No fake meat required.
good luck,
A

Hi, I am 38, married with a 9 yer old daughter. I've never been big on meat, but my husband is, I'm an extremely picky eater and I don't like tofu or "fake" meat either, I'm hoping to keep dairy in my diet. Can you suggest what sources I can use for protein? Thanks
