Vegetarian Bodybuilding Diet Plans
Registered Dietitian: Look for local registered dietitians that can help you put together the healthiest meal plan. Please bare in mind that a vegetarian diet excludes vitamin B12 so you will need to get that from other sources. I recommend you consume wild fish like salmon if you are not completely opposed to fish. Otherwise, you will need to take a B12 supplement. ...Read more
Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure.

I want to gain weight. My height is 5'7 and my weight is 56kg. Please guide me a diet plan. I am vegetarian.
It is impossible to lose 20 kg in one month; 20 kg in a year is more realistic. The best diet is one with minimal sugars & simple carbs from grains. Also avoid fried foods. I like Dr. Furhman's diet, which is primarily vegetarian:
Dr. Weil has useful info: http://tinyurl. Com/m8avwzh- see his "discuss that" link in his article.
Exercise is also important!
Go slow & steady. ...Read more

Hello doctor, can you help me with a two time diet plan? I am a pure vegetarian. Don't want to gain any weight.
Two time?: I am not sure what you mean by "two time diet plan." the best diet plan is a diet you can follow for years, not a temporary diet. My favorite all-around diet plan for both overall health & weight loss is dr. Joel fuhrman's. While one does not have to be a pure vegetarian to follow it, it is very suitable for vegetarians.

I am a 20 year old male. Height 67 inches, weight 56 kgs! I wanna build a good physique and abs! I am a pure vegetarian. Suggest an apt diet plan?
You can do it: You will need to supplement for protein, perhaps with soy powder for vegetarians, and as a vegan, you MUST supplement for vitamin B12, iron, iodine, calcium and a few others or you will ruin your health (even damage your brain permanently). Mixing vegetable proteins helps you get a balance of amino acids ("completeness") but this probably won't be enough. Good luck with this adventure. ...Read more

Supplement: You will need to supplement. Get guidance on obtaining sufficient b12, iodine, vitamin d, iron, and the others from an informed, sympathetic physician.

No: Depending on how much meat you are used to eating would depend on how fast to eliminate it from your diet. If you eat meat with every meal, try having only 1 meal a day contain meat, then you can stretch it to just meat on weekends until you are meat free. Try some meat substitutes (like smart bacon or chik'n patties) and find some new vegetarian favorites, like veggie lasagna, or salads or quinoa. ...Read more
