I am in the transition to a vegan diet but have several food alergies, gluten and soy are my most worries. I am getting along with the gluten ok, but my main concern is how to get in enough protien. I have had a gastric bypass in 2003 and am dealing with a case of malnutrion also, so i do not absord protien very easily. Does anyone have any help on the protien issue?

Is there an unofficial rule in place that one should not reply to threads that are off-topic?<br><br>
Soy is just one of many, many sources of vegan protein. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Other beans (because all soy foods come from the soybean, so it's a beany food, too) like kidney, black, chickpeas, etc. are high in protein, as are lentils, quinoa, nuts and nut products (butters, milks, etc.), and hemp seeds and other hemp products. Other more minor sources of protein like barley, rice, and other grains will also add up. Getting enough protein is easy, and so long as you're eating enough servings from all the food groups, you'll be set. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.vegancoach.com/images/vegan-food-pyramid.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Gastic bypass alone changes things dramatically but then to add food allergies and other issues...Wow. I don't mean to sound rude, but that's a lot! I think you should speak to a dietitian. Your issues are too complex for the simple solutions that work for most people. Here are some vegan Registered Dietitians that you can probably email and ask for advice:<br><a href="http://www.theveganrd.com/" target="_blank">http://www.theveganrd.com/</a><br><a href="http://jacknorrisrd.com/" target="_blank">http://jacknorrisrd.com/</a><br><a href="http://www.jeffnovick.com/" target="_blank">http://www.jeffnovick.com/</a>

How many calories a day can u eat?<br><br>
I avoid soy and have no issues with protein. Most foods have protein, if u eat a variety of veggies and Include nuts and beans that should cover your protein needs.

In truth seitan (wheat gluten) and tofu (soya)/ soya milk are very easy ways to get a lot of protein, but it is possible to be vegan without eating any soya or wheat. As Elaine says, you should really consult a dietician.<br><br>
Here are some ideas for soya free and wheat free vegan protein sources:<br><br>
100g of toasted bread like this <a href="http://beneficialhealth.co.uk/shoppingcart/products/Biona-Organic-Rice-Bread-500g.html" target="_blank">http://beneficialhealth.co.uk/shoppi...read-500g.html</a> = 6g<br><br>
2 tbsp peanut butter= 8g<br><br>
Can of this <a href="http://www.amys.com/products/product-detail/beans-and-chili/000530" target="_blank">http://www.amys.com/products/product...d-chili/000530</a> = 13g<br><br>
100g brown rice = 8g<br><br>
Curry- i.e something like <a href="http://www.amys.com/products/product-detail/indian-meals/000250-" target="_blank">http://www.amys.com/products/product...-meals/000250-</a> 9g<br><br>
Blackbean Soup i.e. something like <a href="http://www.amys.com/products/product-detail/soups/000504" target="_blank">http://www.amys.com/products/product...l/soups/000504</a> - 6g<br><br>
100g Chick peas- 9g<br><br>
200g spinach- 4.4g<br><br>
50g flax seeds- 9g<br><br>
64g pumpkin seeds- 12g<br><br>
Most vegetables contain 1-2g protein per 100g<br><br>
There is even 1g of protein in 28g of daiya!<br><br>
And many more sources.<br><br>
But it all depends on your gastric band/ possible calorie intake so you should really speak to a medical professional.

Hi There,<br><br>
Eat a lot of nuts, like almonds, peanuts, cashews, etc. Nuts are high in nutrients and protein which you need for energy. What i like to eat are bags of trail mixes. its a combination of peanuts, almonds, raisins, and dried cranberries. I eat it before i train and it gives me a lot of energy.<b><br><br>
