Ok, I am 44 and still overweight, but I have lost 100+ pounds and still dropping.
I have done a good job of changing my eating habits and watching calories and volume. I will still have a bad day, but not very often.
I read the book "The China Study" and it really had me thinking about my diet and what I could do to improve my overall health, in combination with what I am already doing. My diet is not anywhere close to a vegetarian diet at this point, but my meat intake has dropped tremendously. I will still have dairy, so that may mean I will not be vegetarian to some people and others it will be just fine.
My concern, or questions on changing, is what foods will I need to eat a lot of to keep my protein levels up, and not have too many calories?
Is there a good web site or two, that will give good meal preparation techniques for fixing vegetarian meals without preaching to you?
My wife is a great cook, but our menu plan always involves a meat of some kind. I know she will never get away from it totally, and maybe I shouldn't either, but maybe make 6 days a week completely without meat, and leave Sunday for a meat meal.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and please don't start complaining about the book, if that is your intentions, please just don't post.
