To make sure you're eating enough protein and calories in general, don’t skimp on plants that offer amino acids and healthy fats. How much protein should you aim to eat each day? While it might be possible to get away with less, I personally think it’s best to divide your body weight in half and eat about that many grams of protein per day. Some of the best plant proteins include natto, Spirulina, Tempe, nutritional yeast, green peas, lentils, quinoa and amaranth.
Strictly speaking, vegetarians are people who do not eat meat, poultry, or seafood. But people with many different dietary patterns call themselves vegetarians, including the following: Do not eat meat, poultry, fish, or any products derived from animals, including eggs, dairy products, and gelatin. Do not eat meat, poultry, or fish, but do eat eggs and dairy products. Eat no meat, poultry, fish, or eggs, but do consume dairy products. Eat no meat, poultry, fish, or dairy products, but do eat eggs. Avoid meat but may eat fish (pesco-vegetarian, Pescatarian) or poultry (pollo-vegetarian).
You can only get vitamin B12 in substantial amounts by consuming meat, fish, eggs and dairy. Cutting out all of these foods can sometimes be problematic and contribute to vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms like fatigue, weakness and others. For this reason it’s recommended that all vegetarians and vegans who abstain from eating most or all animal foods take vitamin B12 supplements. Some grains, beans and legumes, such as raw soybeans, lentils and Mung beans, may contain trypsin inhibitors and other “anti-nutrients” that can make digestion difficult and hinder nutrient absorption. These inhibitors can block key digestive enzymes, and One of the most common trends I’ve found from working with hundreds of vegans and vegetarians is that they tend to over-consume carbohydrates and sugars. Eating too many carbohydrates can cause Candida and yeast overgrowth, along with weight gain. There are some who have been able to find better balance, but this can take a lot of work and planning. acid found in grains can keep you from absorbing calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc. However, soaking and sprouting your grains and legumes can greatly reduce phytic acid.
