This is one of the five simple rules that are the basis of the Stop Hunger Diet. Stick to these and you are well on your way to losing weight and keeping it off, and helping people too. See the other rules.
Modern western society tends to highlight meat as the best and only source of protein in the diet. However my #3 rule of including two vegetarian meals a week will help to reduce the fat content (especially saturated fat) in the diet, as well as increase the fibre content. Vegetarian meals don't have to be 'meals without meat', in fact it is important to include an alternative source of protein like eggs, chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, tofu and even nuts. These need to be included with a balanced meal of vegetables and a carbohydrate source, like rice or pasta. Eating vegetarian is cheaper as meat is a very expensive item on the grocery list. You will also be doing a favour for the environment to eat less meat, as the cattle grazing on land that could be used for growing grain has a higher carbon footprint.
Some examples are;
These meals are very satisfying, and are not just 'salad on a plate' which doesn't fill the dinner gap that most people are used to.
The first aim of any weight loss program is to lose weight, the second aim of course is to keep it off. Not all diets are very good at one or both of these. By following these dietician designed "Stop Hunger Diet: 5 Rules to Live By", you will lose weight, not fast, but healthily and consistently, plus you will learn good habits that will help you keep off the weight. Good luck, and let us know how you go.
