VEGETARIAN MEAL PLAN | Best Food for Weight Loss

The goal for all of your meals is to have a quality protein, carb, and fat source in every meal (or almost every meal). A quality protein consists of a complete protein for full benefits. In these circumstances, they will typically be a high carb or fat source as well since these are vegetarian options.

I’m going to give you serving sizes only as a sample, but these sample sizes may not be what’s right for your weight loss goals. Remember that macro & energy requirements are relative to the individual. You may need more or less calories to achieve a healthy caloric deficit. Typically you want to be 100-200 calories under your maintenance to start and continue lowering your calories as your energy needs decrease with your weight loss. Please feel free adjust portion sizes to fit your needs.
