Breakfast (7 - 8 A.M.) - Organic rolled oats soaked in apple cider vinegar. Top the mixture with grated apple and mixed fresh berries such as blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Sprinkle some milled flaxseeds over to complete the meal.

Morning Snack (9:30 - 10 A.M.) - Mixed fruits comprising dragon fruit, pomegranate and pear. Or any fruits you like.

Lunch (12 - 1 P.M.) - Pita bread stuffed with pan-seared Portobello mushroom, alfalfa sprouts, baby cucumbers and juicy cherry tomatoes. Then lace it with vegan basil pesto sauce. Pair this yummy pocket bread with a glass of unsweetened soy milk.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet Tips

In your vegetarian diet for weight loss, vegetables should make up about 50 - 60% in your lunch and dinner. The reason for including so much vegetable is because vegetables carry very high fiber, and eating fibrous foods bear these benefits:

1. You feel full easily so you won't get a chance to heap on excess calories.

2. Because fiber slows down the digestion of food, you won't feel hungry so easily.

3. Fiber helps to flush toxic wastes out of your body. A cleansed and detoxified body will burn fat and lose weight more efficiently.

If you don't like eating vegetables all along, I suggest that you begin with 20% then progressively increase to 30% and so forth. You can't lose weight and achieve ideal shape without vegetables. Fact.

If you feel the timing of eating each weight loss meal does not match your busy schedules, you can always re-schedule them, but make sure you fit the snack in between the meals at an interval of 2 - 3 hours.

Another thing that will make eating your vegetarian diet for weight loss more fruitful is that each of your 3 main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) should give you 70% fullness while the snack should fill your stomach to about 30 - 40% only. Snacks are added in between the main meals to provide continuous energy to fuel your activities.

What else do you need to know? Oh, make sure you drink enough water along with your fiber-packed vegetarian weight loss diet to avoid dehydration. Drinking sufficient water can boost metabolism and help you lose weight more effectively.
