Vegetarian Fat Loss Diet by Laura Ng

If you want to lose fat as a vegetarian the healthy way, then you should create a healthy vegetarian fat loss diet with these 3 ingredients in mind - natural, nutritious and delicious.

Natural vegetarian fat loss diet helps to reduce your toxic intake from processed vegetarian food. A toxic-free body will lose fat more effectively and efficiently. Feeding your body with all essential nutrients can help your body perform at its optimal condition to take care of your weight automatically. Making it delicious can motivate you to lose fat with the diet using half the effort.

Now you know why those 3 ingredients are so important in the making of healthy vegetarian fat loss diet. Let's get down to seeing what's inside the diet now.

Breakfast - Protein smoothie made from blending baby spinach, strawberries, blueberries, organic protein powder (GMO-free), whole wheat bread and virgin coconut oil.

Lunch - Veggie burger made from sandwiching pan-seared Portobello mushroom with wholegrain breads. Add alfalfa sprouts, butterhead lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers under the mushroom and then top the mushroom with vegan basil pesto sauce.

Dinner - Rainbow salad made from mixing fresh spinach leaves, sunflower seeds, shredded carrot, shredded beet, shredded apple, dried cranberries and dried apricots with virgin coconut oil plus olive oil as dressing.

These 3 are your regular healthy fat loss meals and carry the most weight in your vegetarian fat loss diet. That's why they contain the most nutrients, fiber and long lasting energy to keep you metabolically active throughout the day. Make sure you prepare them at the portion size that feeds your stomach to only 70% full. Keeping at this satiety level is optimum, from my personal eating experience.

That's not all. An effective vegetarian fat loss diet should also include 2 snacks where you'll insert one in between breakfast and lunch, the other in between lunch and dinner. Each of them should only make you feel 30 - 40% full. They are there to provide you with additional energy to boost your metabolism for continuous burning of fat. Hunger will slow down metabolism which can wreck your fat loss plan.

The snack can be as simple as a handful of mixed nuts, grains and seeds. Or you can eat mixed fruits of your favorite. Or mini pita bread stuffed with peanut butter and natural fruit jam. Let your creative juices flow.

What else can you do to make your vegetarian fat loss diet burn even more fat for you? Exercise. Relying solely on diet can take on a slow pace. Factoring in exercises will speed up your fat loss.
