I am one of those on-again-off-again vegetarians. Though every day without meat is a bit better for the planet! Hihi. The thing that annoys me is that everytime I am trying to lose weight I do it by calorie counting and low-carbing. And it is just impossible for me to not eat meat then. I get tired, and I'll be low on my protein and just eventually give in.
Meanwhile my mom is trying to cook veggie for me and I can't say every other week "oh this week I'll eat meat, this week I don't". So I feel like I have to hide it everytime I succumb and eat some meat.
Any of you girls dealing with the same? I know all the sources for protein like beans, soy and whatnot. And I do eat that, but the quantities of food I'd need to eat to get enough protein just don't match with my lowcal diet and my desire to eat something other than cottage cheese.
Just needed to vent and always curious to see what you gals say! These boards are great for good advice.
P.S. I do eat pretty healthy, mostly whole foods and a good mix of things. I just want more than 30grams of protein a day and don't seem to be able to without going way over my calories so I end up wanting chicken or something.
