Unclear question: Do you mean how to gain weight on a vegetarian diet? If so, why do you wish to gain weight? If you are otherwise healthy, being skinny is not a disease and may be better for you. At the age of 40 the only body growth you are likely to experience is increase in body fat and I would not recommend that. ...Read more

While a healthy vegetarian diet tends to be good for most people, studies of cultures known for health and longevity conducted by weston price and others found these indigenous diets always included some meats (wild/organic). Please clarify. ...Read more
Black patches have developed on the body of my dad. He is around 50 yrs. We are vegetarian. These patches are on entire body, have developed in 2 months
Go to see PMD: I don't know what they are. It is hard without examining those patches. Whatever is- he should go to see his doctor and let him examined the patches and go from there. It could be fungal infection, could be something else. I don't think it has anything to do with being a vegetarian. But being a ve getarian, you should remember to take vit B12 supplement. ...Read more

I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables I can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?
This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate (folic acid); if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference. There are no good vegetable sources of b12- you need to supplement with it. For good sources of iron see http://www. Vrg. Org/nutrition/iron. Php
for folate (folic acid) sources see http://www. Whfoods. Com/genpage. Php? Tname=nutrient&dbid=63. ...Read more

I am bit slim and want to put on some weight and want to build nice body musles... So what should be my daily diet... And also I am vegetarian..
Vegetarian Too: I am also vegetarian. You will need to eat more calories than you burn, which is tough for vegetarians. I would suggest a vegetarian protein powder - and assure you are obtaining 20-30grams protein after any weight lifting or intense exercise for proper muscle repair/building. Be sure to eat more calories than you burn - that is the key. ...Read more

Forgive my frankness: You can't. The glands that make us smell like adults are no longer useful but are still very active. Nowadays, you can't shower and change clothes hourly. Alum works poorly. The pop claim that vegetarians smell better reflects less intake of sulfur-containing proteins rather than less adult gland activity. And if you stink, you're likely to lose your job without being told why. It's your life. ...Read more

I am vegetarian & always trouble w/ protein. I don't like nuts or beans. Is it possible my body is used to low daily protein? I get some but not much
Your daily protein: Requirements are not nearly as high as you might think. As long as you are eating a variety of foods, it is very difficult to not get enough protein, as long as you are eating enough calories. Even "low protein" foods, such as potatoes, have about 8% protein, which is close to the WHO recommendation of 10% of daily calories. Hope this helps! ...Read more
I am very slim I want to gain weight through vegetarian diet. How to gain muscles and some fat over body in controllable manner?
Use BMI: Use a bmi calculator. Many in the market/internet. Bmi between 19-25 it's normal. Below 18 it's not healthy for you. I see you are dealing with emotional problems. Be very careful with your weight. Do not get fixated with being slim. Look at your inner beauty. You are loved. God, friends, family. But, you have to love yourself first. I will pray for you.

Dear doctors, which vegies help my body to create more creatine to gain muscle? Actually I'm a vegetarian and don't want to eat redmeats and fishes
Vegan or OvoVegan?: If one doesn't eat eggs, then egg white (which is all protein) is not an option. That means one would have to add items like beans, legumes (like peas), nuts (like cooked cashews or cooked peanuts), soy (like tofu), etc... To get more protein. However, as long as one eats a balanced vegetarian diet, his body can make muscle protein from the nutrients in the balanced variety of vegetables he eats. ...Read more
Obese & trying vegetarian diet, but I soon feel weak, & my body seems to hang onto extra weight/go into starvation mode. Why? Thank you in advance!
A person is havig lucoderma. So should he take injections twice a weak of vitamin B12 as it is insuffecient in his body? . He is a vegetarian. Male 21 yr
Whoa: Something is wrong here. All vegetarians need to supplement with vitamin B12, but it's best done orally unless you cannot absorb the stuff that way. B12 shots twice a week is overkill; once a month is probably fine. Leukoderma is often vitiligo, or sometimes tinea versicolor or something else; a proper diagnosis needs to be made. And vitiligo can run with pernicious anemia. Needs to be sorted out. ...Read more
Can you get food poisoning from eating food cooked on a grill near meat if you are vegetarian for years? Sudden body aches like flu next day
Hmmmm...?: If you are asking whether your food, touching meat on a grill, would make you sick, simply because you are a vegetarian, I'd have to say no. On the other hand, if several other people at your cookout got sick too, it could be food poisoning. Expect some vomiting and/or diarrhea. More likely, with your symptoms, the infection you've been exposed to is viral, not food-borne. Get rest and fluids! ...Read more

Spot fat loss does: Not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be leg, hip, thigh fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Engage in regular aerobic exercise (i.e. running, swimming, Nordic track, bicycling, kickboxing, walking, cross country skiing, hiking, etc.). Weight training also helps ...Read more
Hi I am strictly vegetarian and looking for omega-3 DHA source. I wanted to know if ALA in Walnuts gets converted to DHA sufficient well in our body?
Research suggests that only about 0.5% of ALA is converted to DHA and some people may not be able to make that conversion at all. There are vegan sources of DHA from algae.

Vegetarian. I take 25mcg B12 daily and 1000mcg once/wk, but my B12 is 1371 pg/mL? Mono% is 11.8%? Severe fatigue&body aches. Some numbness in fingers.
B12 not a issue:
Your B12 and monocyte count are okay and are not related to your symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion about your symptoms as that requires a detailed history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
Wish you good health. ...Read more
