advice needed!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I'm pretty new to this site and I'm looking for some advice about nutrition. I am a strict vegetarian and I try to stay away from dairy products most of the time. I have started working out with a trainer because I have gained A LOT of weight in the past couple of months due to thyroid problems. My trainer is having trouble helping me plan my meals because she said protein sources for vegetarians have a lot of carbs. She said carbs are not my enemy but she wants me to have more protein than carbs right now.

Do any of you guys have any tips for me? Thanks in advance.

Well lots of protein powders do not have hardly and carbs with lots of protein, so that could help to boost your protein. Also fake meats, such as tofurkey, tofu, seitan, and tempeh have relatively low carbs with high amounts of protein. Also rememeber you can subtract the fiber from the carbs, like an apple might have 24 carbs and 4 grams of fiber, so its really only like 20 grams of digestable carbs. Hope this helps
