    Default Vegetarian anabolic diet

    Does any body know of any books that support a vegetarian anabolic diet. I believe the anabolic diet is the same as the ketogenic diet.

    I would think it impossible for a vegetarian to have a ketogenic diet since these diet drastically reduce or remove carbs. Not much protein or fat in veggies (compared to the amount of carbs).

    I believe you can eat a salad and it would be low carb. My salad would consist of romaine lettuce, onion, pickle, olives, tofu, cucumber and blue cheese sprinkled on top. With olive oil and balsamic vinegar as a dressing.

    Your salad is low carb, healthy and it would be tasty too, but it would still give you too many carbs for a ketogenic result.

    The original post is asking for books supporting a "diet". To me that means a total eating regime and that is what I find impossible. Unless you actually just eat salad forever. While that is not as bad of a diet as some folks eat ... it's still an unhealthy one, especially considering long-term cell wall degeneration due to poor protein synthesis that would develop because of deficiencies in certain amino acids.

    Thank you for your knowledge. I will have to study the diet and what you can eat on it more. I want to stay away from a lot of meat because it has been linked to cancer.

    I have been doing extensive research into diet over the last few years and have found that ketogenic diets are successful for a lot of people, but not all.
    My partner is a vegetarian so I have produced a diet that is low in starchy carbohydrates but contains a more salad and veg than keto diets but still results in consistent fat loss, whilst maintaining and possibly increasing lean tissue.
    Nearly 20 of our clients are following our Nutrition plan, and all have seen significant fat loss, feel less bloated and have more energy.

    Woooooooaaah....
    Meat linked to cancer?
    Perhaps you want to tell that to the hundreds of thousands of your ancestors that hunted for meat....and survived long enough to reproduce.
    Or...
    Look at the quality of the meat you buy. The majority of the meat you buy from supermarkets is basically, poisoned. The animal it came from, filled with hormones and medicines, fed garbage and lived it's whole life on a festering, tiny patch of land.
    Meat is not the problem. Quality is the problem.

    Select good quality meat from reliable sources. Vegetarianism is for cows, sheep, goats and many other delicious animals....
