Healthy vegetarian diet plan
EatingWell's 28-day Vegetarian Meal Plan provides an overall healthy-eating program that meets the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans at three different daily caloric levels: 1200, 1500 and 1800. These menus are packed with nutrient-rich foods, including whole grains, low-fat dairy and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. The recipes use a variety of vegetarian protein sources, such as legumes, tofu, tempeh, whole grains, nuts, as well as cheese and eggs.
Each of the 28 days on the plan includes 5 to 8 EatingWell recipes that use common, everyday ingredients and are simple to prepare. The recipes include entrees, side dishes, salads and desserts and are accompanied by other healthy foods to create nutritionally balanced meals that are both delicious and satisfying. In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, each day on the plans includes a morning and an afternoon snack. Although many of the daily meal plans are almost vegan, they were not designed to be. However, with minor modifications, a strict vegan can follow these meal plans by replacing certain animal-source ingredients with the vegan counterpart: for example, soymilk for milk or soy cheese for cheese.

A 100% vegetarian diet that has a good variety2008-02-12 17:20:01 by tallmom
Of fruits, veggies whole grains, legumes, and enough nuts to get your vitamin e and omega-3's is healthy. I'm not a dr. but have studied up. A b-complex vitamin as well as a high quality multivitamin are also recommended. B-12 is a missing vitamin in a completely vegetarian diet. Without it you can become very fatigued, and or depressed. (multi vitamin is recommended in most reputable diet books-weight loss books)
You might want to cec out Weight watchers Core plan. I'm currently on it, that's why I am partial. While it allows unprocessed meat if you made to modification of no meat and used those 35 extra points for nuts and the occasional desert you'd be eating a really healthy vegetarian weight loss program rich in low energy dense foods

Will not automatically = weight loss.
like any diet it will be calories being less than calorie used. you can get fat and chubby being vegetarian or vegan as easily as being omnivorous.
if it is something you want to do - good for you and good luck. a healthy diet is a healthy diet - any diet should provide good quality protein and be at least .5 grams of protein / pound of lean body mass. after that - basic intake of healthy carbohydrates and fats too are the basic macro-nutrients that should be at the core of a good diet plan.
just because someone does not eat meat does not make them healthy
Detox diet recommendations?2004-08-13 09:43:51 by bzzkill
I'm finally at my wits end. I'm a long-time vegetarian (35 years?), who's been generally thin-ish my whole life. My metabolism seems to have retired. I can barely eat (or, of course, what I *think* is barely eat!) without packing some nice soft fat all around me. Ugh. I work out (run 3 miles a day), not helping me with a trimmer physique.
I've seen so much regarding detox diets (yes, I drink coffee...want to quit)... Can anyone send me a url for a good detox plan? I'm finally ready to get truly healthy, and just want to "kick-start" my journey.
Thanks to all!
