<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> you seem to have the right idea. It's easy to put on weight on a vegetarian diet if you want to. Just eat more <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Get your healthy fats and plenty of calories in and you'll do great.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Soy (including soymilk, tofu, etc) is a complete protein. You don't have to add anything to it. As are avocado and quinoa, I think. If you are still eating eggs and dairy, both of those are complete proteins too. IN GENERAL, grains + legumes makes a complete protein, IIRC, so for example beans + rice is great. But you don't need to worry about it too much - the proteins don't have to be combined in the same mouthful or even the same meal so if you eat a variety of things over a day you should be fine.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

good for you. I used to love diet coke but rarely drink it now (not for any conscious reasons - they took the can vending machione out of my school <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">)<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
Isowish had some very good advice. I also recommend The Tip of the Day Thread in the New to Vegetarianism Forum. There is lots of good advice there.
