Hi, it works to drink the water but you also have to watch what you eat. You still need the same balance of food whenyou are a vegitarian. Some times veggies, tend to bulk up on the carbs and forget to get the protien in. You need to make sure that each meal is balance, protein, vegatables, and carbs. You can get protein from seitan, tofu, beans, all kinds of things, and it should be the main course just as if you are eating meat. I ussually bulk up on the veggies to fill me up and have just one serving of grains a meal.
I have also found, that I can't eyeball my proportions so I bought the scale and have been weighing everything. somethings are so far off from what I thought. I was totally over estimating servings.
I rember when I became a veg in middle school and people thought I was gonna lose weight, it didn't happen. it never happened until I realised how poorly I was eating.
keep at it and it will come off.
