Veg Diet Recipes to Lose Weight
Following any diet has its ups and downs. I’ve personally found it frustrating when I hear about the next best thing in weight loss, only to find out it requires consuming massive amounts of meat or other animal products. Though it may seem a bit trickier, there are ways to modify the most popular diet strategies into a vegetarian weight loss diet.
You might have to be a little creative but I think the effort is totally worth it. Finding a way to stay healthy is always my number one goal and naturally, I want to look my best too but I do want to achieve both while taking my environmental concerns into account.
My parents and I had success following a vegetarian version of the slow carb diet (I lost 25 lbs.!) and it got me thinking that with some tweaks, most popular diets can become vegetarian! So I chose four mainstream diets and collected some recipes and tips for converting them into vegetarian weight loss diets.
Love the food you eat to lose weight
Any weight loss attempt will be more successful if you actually enjoy the food you're eating. The recipes found on these pages will help you reach and maintain a healthy weight because they use spices and combine flavors to accentuate the natural taste of great healthy ingredients.
You can do it!
Losing weight is an up and down roller coaster. You’re determine, excited, then disappointed then surprised and elated. Because the path isn’t always an easy straightforward one, I find it helpful to seek inspiration from those who have been on the same journey before me.

I hope you can find some solace in these recipes and continue to follow a your vegetarian weight loss diet until you reach all your aspirations. You’re not alone and it’s awesome you are getting out there and trying!
One last tip...
Eating a vegetarian diet and cooking for yourself means you’re already more than half-way there! Making those first steps towards a healthier lifestyle are often times the hardest ones. You deserve a round of applause and a pat on the back right here and now.
There are lots of different ways to approach a vegetarian weight loss diet. Regardless of which one you try, keep in mind that staying healthy is the end goal, not a particular number on the scale. Try not to beat yourself up over the little things. In this instant gratification society I find it a struggle to think long-term sometimes but it’s worth it!

First off... Congrats on losing the 20 pounds and taking the initiative to get healthy!
You should really cut out dairy if you want to lose weight and be healthy. I've been vegetarian for about 17 years and went vegan about 3.5 years ago and I'll never look back.
Protein might not be the issue, it could be a number of things. I would start really looking into what you eat. I know you have gotten a reply with the suggestion of peanut butter.... I would stay away from peanut butter... even the low fat is very high in fat and if you're trying to lose weight
