    Default help me design a diet

    ok so here's basically what happens. When I eat too much meat I feel sick like if i have a serving of meat every day at minimum, when I eat none at all I feel like I'm going to pass out, despite getting enough protein and iron from other sources. It might be something else, ie all in my head but eating meat at least once a week seems to prevent me from passing out or feeling like I'm going to pass out. especially lamb or steak. My sister in law eats fish so I do eat that on occasion when my brother is out of town and that helps aswell, but it seems eating a strictly vegetarian diet leaves me feeling weak and low energy. so besides helping me design a diet. Why is this, because I am eating the nutrients I need to function but for whatever reason lack of meat makes me feel sluggish. maybe try to eat meat every 3 days and see how that works?

    I'm not sure why you're passing out, but beans+rice will give you the proteins your body needs, though you'll probably need a truckload of rice. Have you considered Boca products or other vegetarian foods?

    Yeah see how that works with the meat every 3 days and see how you feel after a couple of weeks.

    see I do eat those, I don't get it. because i had veggie sausage along with pancakes for breakfast. something with root vegetables, lentils, and feta in it for lunch. So I shouldn't be feeling this way but I do.

    you could try supplementing your diet with protein powder. I recommend optimum nutrition's pro complex. it has 8 types of high purity protein and you can make tasty fruit shakes by blending it with fresh fruit, fat free vanilla yogurt, and ice.

    lets look at what 100g of lamb has in it

    23 g of FAT !!!! and not rancid omega 6 loaden vegetable oils either (you know that eating lots of omega six makes it impossible for the body to take in required omega 3)

    10 g of saturated fat --- check out coconut oil if you like satrurated fats. they are not unhealthy!!! its a lie.
    9g monounsaturated fat
    only 2 g of polyunsaturated fat

    yeah some protein too...

    plenty of calicum and magnesium. not the chemical trash from supplements.

    other stuff like phosphor and selenium (check brazil nuts for selenium)

    lots of potassium

    are you a low-fat-paradigm slave?


    i am on a low carb diet. eating fatty muscle meat only once a week, plus liver once seems to be a natural amount for me.
    other protein sources are eggs, fish, cheese and yoghurt, and chocholate-whey isolat (which i like to mix with grinded coconut meat and verry little water, so it becomes a thick cream much like oat meal)

    my lactose intollerance was healed as a side effect of my low carb diet.

    Have you tried Quinoa yet? It's awesome! It's a pseudograin that has the full protein package, plus lots of fiber, and other stuff in it. I use it as a substitute for pasta for the most part, but it lets me get away with eating less meat as a whole.

    It's fairly cheap and very easy to make. I get mine at the bulk section of a whole foods kind of store near me. It's much cheaper if you can get it that way... but I do know that Trader Joe's carries it as well in boxed form.

    Eat beans, lentils, nuts (or nut butters like peanut butter and almond butter), seeds, eggs, and dairy products to get protein most of the week. Beans and eggs alone are fantastic sources of protein and other nutrients. Also, like Saturned recommended, quinoa is a grain that is a source of complete protein.

    Then eat fish or chicken once or twice a week if you're craving meat.

    I seriously think you may not be eating enough beans, eggs, and cheese or something if a vegetarian diet makes you feel sluggish. Usually it's vegan diets that do that when people are excluding animal products entirely and doing it in an improper manner. Beans contain a great deal of iron, just like meat.

    There are entire populations of people that pretty much live off of beans as a primary staple. It's common in Mexico (refried beans and rice), Lousiana (red beans and rice), and many other places.

    I also recommend eating whole grains, which are more filling. Multi-grain breads, brown rice, etc. will help you feel fuller and give you more nutrients. I also got these great buckwheat ramen from the Korean grocery store, you could get them at any Asian market I'm sure.

    that's the thing I am getting enough of those things, I just don't understand why my head hurts and i feel like I'm going to faint all the time eating this way.
