Your can always download fooducate. It shows gray alternatives and what products to eat for vegetarians, vegans, etc. whatever kind of diet you might follow, it tracks calories like mfp, but what mfp doesn't do is show you all the bad toxic crap that is in the food you eat and it also tells you why its b fad for you. You can set fooducate according to your dietary needs as well.
Hi Nina I'm lacto-ovo veg and it works well for me as a mountain biker and martial arts student. So you seem to want more protein. You might add nuts, legumes and maybe some eggs in. Question for you: over 40 pct of your diet is carbs...what are you eating to make up that 40 pct? Not all carbs are created equal. Some have pretty good nutritional density and other highly processed carbs are just trash.
Hi Nina - If you're eating less processed carbs, it probably means you're eating the better, lower glycymic index carbs...and that could mean you don't have to worry so much about having them be 40% of your diet. If you want info on good carbs v. bad, you can just google it, but I like the way they showed it in this chart http://www.nerdgraph.com/good-carbs-vs-bad-carbs/ Hope that helps. I'm just thinking maybe it's not so much cutting out carbs for you as consuming more protein.
I found a similar thing when I used myfitnesspal. I instantly increased my protein and started only buying low-fat or fat-free food products. I get my protein from protein shakes, prawns (excellent source of protein), legumes, & fat-free cottage cheese.
I started veggie diet 3 days ago n iv lost two pounds. I'm vry excited. My problem was bread mostly. I eat wheat when I do though. N when I ate processed food it made me want more. I'm feeling good about this diet. I believe once I'm down where I want il eat same just occasional meat. This is the best diet iv tried though. With kids anyway
Paleo and a 800 cal on the run. Alternating every week.
I started a clean eating plan 8 weeks ago and have the occasional treat. Generally I try to remember - If it's blessed with the sun it's good, if its blessed by a factory I try to stay away from it. I changed my oils, flours etc to coconut and have 3L of water every day. This combined with 4 to 5 sessions of either cardio or heavy weights per week and I am down 12kg. Its been hard but I love all the great healthy things I make now and cant see myself going back to my old lifestyle anytime soon. Good luck!
