So is becoming a vegetarian a good way to lose weight? Well it is not an option you should take lightly, it requires a serious change to your life if you currently eat a typical Western omnivore diet, and is not going to be less complicated than the usual weight loss programs like most people think it would be.
For a start you need to keep a close eye on what you are eating to make sure that you are getting enough protein, and essential amino acids from the food you eat, which can only be achieved by including a wide variety of foods like lupin, quinoa, buckwheat and soy.
Getting protein and essential amino acids into our diet is something omnivores take for granted as they are abundant in meat, but while most other nutrients can be found in non-meat sources then that is one area an inexperienced vegetarian can slip up. Some other nutrients you need to keep an eye on are iron, vitamin B12 and fatty acids like Omega 3 if you are going to avoid fish.
If you want to lose weight then it is probably easier to follow another diet than this because there is a high learning curve associated with it. However if you really want to become a vegetarian for other reasons then I advise you pick up some books on the subject to learn how to avoid the common pitfalls.
It is best to speak with your doctor about any of the important questions that you might have to ask about. You should also ask them what type of elliptical fitness training programs you need to be doing and how much every day you should be working out on these. Remember that the best weight loss plan will include a certain amount of exercise.
