Against my good advice (well, I think it's good), my wife has decided to go vegetarian. Something about the cute unfortunate animals... Fortunately, she hasn't given me an ultimatum (i.e., "it's the meat or me, you choose", but she is concerned about eating adequate levels of protein. She is active, goes to the gym three times a week (not HST though, again against my good advice). Her goals are mainly fat loss, but she doesn't want to lose muscle, she wants to look fit rather than gaunt. So anyway, from what I've read 1g of protein per KILOGRAM of body weight is enough to maintain muscle, especially for the ladies. Firstly, does this ratio sound right to everyone, or should she go for the 1g per lb of body weight? Another thing, what foods can she eat to keep up her protein levels? I've recommended cottage cheese, eggs, normal cheese (low fat), nuts, and lentils. Does anyone have any other ideas for high protein non-meat and preferably low fat food sources? She's not going vegan, but she is not going to eat any animal - fish, chicken, whatever (but cheese and eggs are OK). Cheers!
