I’m a vegetarian by choice. Not because of moral or religious reasons. It’s just that I was brought up a vegetarian and it’s really hard to start eating meat now. The thing is, I’m really picky with my food, and so being a vegetarian limits what I can will eat. It’s more constraitive when I’m trying to plan a balanced, nutritional diet to hack my fitness levels. To be honest, no one ever mentions a healthy, complete vegetarian diet. Of all the Men’s Health issues I’ve read so far, all diet plans included meat. But I was surprised that I didn’t even find an answer on Google till my 5th search which lead to this simple yet effective nutritional diet that I will try to follow from next month. It’s not rigit, it’s just meant to be a guideline of what I want to include in my diet. Plus, I’m free to eat whatever on weekends. And I’ve got one chocolate bar, and one piece of cake a month allowance.

Breakfast: Wholemeal Bread x 2 + Cottage Cheese or Baked beans and Vegemite + Strawberry Yogurt + Melons/Apple + Glass of milk
Lunch: Wholemeal Spaghetti with Tomato paste or Veggie Burger or Chickpeas+Potatoes(with onions/tomatoes) Salad
Dinner: Chickpea curry with 2x chapattis or Beanburger with Yogurt dessert
Snacks: Bio Yogurt + Dried Fruit + Fruit + Popcorn

This diet ensures that my daily quota of 1400 calories is supplied and I get daily quota of protein(legumes), vitamins(vegemite), Iron(lentils), Zinc(nuts) and Calcium(milk), and I might take a protein/nutrients suppliment when I start working out. Plus, Pizza is strictly prohibited on weekdays. So are chips and coke. Beers are only permitted on from Thursday to Sunday, only 2 days a week from that period and maximum of 6 standard drinks. Apart from starting this strict diet next month, I’m also *drumroll* joining a gym. Yes, I’ve never really joined a gym before, but I think it’s time for me to get back in shape. I haven’t settled down on a workout yet, but I’m sure I’ll post it here when I do.
