I have end-stage kidney failure but I'm not on dialysis. I follow a special renal diet and I'm a vegetarian. What are good sources of protein for someone like me who must also limit phosphorus and potassium?
The answer depends on what type of vegetarian you are: It also depends on your level of kidney function and how restrictive you need to be with protein, phosphorus and potassium. A proper renal diet is an essential part of any treatment plan for chronic kidney disease. Although a renal diet limits protein, you still need to eat some high-quality protein every day. Being a vegetarian doesn't mean missing out on quality protein. There are plenty of good plant sources of proteins. However, a vegetarian renal diet requires a tailored meal plan from a registered dietitian because vegetarian sources of protein also contain varying amounts of potassium and phosphorus. Your dietitian can help you choose the right foods in the right amounts. Your kidneys are responsible for preventing too much potassium and phosphorus from building up in your blood. So it's important to have the right amount of potassium and phosphorus in your diet to avoid overwhelming your kidneys' ability to maintain healthy levels. Here's some basic information on: Protein. , Phosphorus. , Potassium. , Sodium. . Your meal plan should also include guidelines for other food groups, such as grains, fats and sweets. A meal plan from a registered dietitian will help you meet your needs for calories and other important nutrients. ...Read more

Thus you can gain weight either by reducing the intensity or even more importantly the duration of the workout, or by eating more food. Question is why do you want to gain weight if you are of average range? Unless , of course, you want to become a sumo wrestler. ...Read more
