Much research has been done into the benefits of a vegetarian diet. Studies have shown being vegetarian can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and some forms of cancer, as well as helping reduce obesity. However, ensuring you consume enough calories and protein to keep you fuelled throughout your day can be a challenge.
Getting enough protein as a vegetarian can be tough, particularly if you are following a fat loss or muscle building diet. So, what can you do to ensure you get enough? Well, with a bit or organisation and creativity it is actually easier than you might think, and you’ll be whisking up some high protein vegetarian meals in no time!
Protein is an important part of any diet, whether you want to lose fat, build muscle, or maintain general health. A general rule of thumb is 1-1.4g/kg of body weight if you are eating for general health.
In order to avoid things becoming a bit repetitive it’s a good idea to mix things up where you can. This will be key to making your vegetarian diet sustainable; you have to enjoy what you eat or else you’ll be miserable! A good way to do this, particularly if you’re not a big fan of meat substitutes, is to look abroad for food inspiration.
