I am about 2 months into a vegetarian diet transitioning to vegan.....I'm an ectomorph build. I have been doing high carb low protein/ low fat diet... I was about 160 when i started down to about 148 now. I was never fat but see now I did have quite a bit of body fat. I have been lifting for many years but not hardcore, just staying some what fit.The weights I have been lifting have remained consistent through the past 2 months....I really dont want to lose any more weight now....how much protein should I be eating? I know before I went veg I was doing a lot ....does that still apply? I like being trim and fit but wouldn't mind adding a few lb's of muscle.

here's what I eat a day

Breakfast
fresh lemon juice/cayenne pepper water
1 banana
smoothie with 3/4 blueberry/1 banana/3 dates/1 big kale leaf/fresh ginger
about an 1 hr later:
1/3 cup oatmeal with a scoop of brown rice protein powder(17g), 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 tablesppon hemp seeds

mid morning
banana and protein bar (20g)

lunch
2 cups brown rice pasta
1 cup steamed broccoli
1/2 cup black bleans

afternoon
1 banana
smoothie with 3/4 blueberry/1 banana/3 dates/2 cups spinach/fresh ginger

evening

1 slice sprouted sesame bread , 1 table spoon almond butter
1 protein shake - 1 cup almond milk 3 tablespoon hemp powder(13g) 1 scoop raw protein (17g)
a few nuts

Not just protein but maybe you should be eating more in general. Also what does your workout look like?
