    Hi Infoempire,

    Welcome abroad. I follow a vegetarian nutrition plan. This is a basic idea of what I eat.I eat fruit and veggies. Do you eat dairy products,eggs, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese and milk? That's how I get a lot of my protein. I make smoothies for breakfast with nonfat milk, raspberries, blueberries,strawberries and bananas. I also make omelets with spinach,veggies and lowfat cheese. I eat cereal with nonfat milk. I also eat beans and rice, peanut butter and honey sandwich, nuts and tofu. For veggies I eat cabbage with potatoes and stir fry red peppers,mushrooms and spinach. I eat bread, pasta, tortilla shells all whole wheat and in moderation.
    I make veggie pizzas, veggie spaghetti, and gardenburgers.

    I eat approximately 1200-1300 calories and I exercise at the minimum of 25 minutes day. I have a exercise video I do and I alternate that with walking outdoors. So far I've lost 37 pounds in just under 4 months.

    I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need more information. I would be happy to help.

    Thanks for the tip... I was not thinking of looking to dairy for protein. As I try to make myself feel full I think adding a little daily would be helpful. Good Fat and Protein. I appreciate you sharing. I hope I have as much success in 4 months as you have! Staying Strong!
