Malnutrition isn't common because of the vegetarian diet, malnutrition is common because of a person not eating a proper vegetarian diet. Many people who have told me that being veg wasn't good on their health either won't tell me what their eating habits were like OR when they tell me I realize their habits weren't healthy...many times they weren't eating enough calories or relied heavily on faux meat products. In your original post you asked if a person can eat this way without faux meats or things like tofu: yes! I have never been big on faux meats (I eat them maybe once every couple of months) and soy like tofu/tempeh does a number on my stomach. I'm a beans and seitan kind of girl. Just don't do seitan if you are gluten free
