How to Gain Weight As a Vegetarian What’s the way.

Vegetarians eat mostly vegetables, fruits, and grains, though some also eat dairy products and eggs. Since it has no meat, you might find that you lose weight when you first start as a vegetarian. While for many, this is a benefit, for others it can be a problem. However, with a little tweaking, your diet can better support your body’s health. On a vegetarian diet, you can gain weight by choosing your foods thoughtfully.

NUMBER ONE: UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VEGETARIANISM AND VEGAN

Vegans are all vegetarians, but not all vegetarians are vegans. A vegetarian diet cuts out all meat products — beef, poultry, sometimes fish, and so on — but a vegan diet eliminates all animal and animal-based food products. This means vegans do not eat dairy products (such as milk, yogurt, butter, cheese) and eggs. Vegans therefore base their diets around nutrient-rich plants.[1] The diet of a vegan is more restrictive, and therefore more of a challenge to get complete nutrition (although of course it is possible), and for underweight individuals, may make it a bit more difficult to gain weight.

NUMBER TWO: CALCULATE YOUR CALORIE NEEDS

A calorie is a unit of energy in food that, when consumed, is either used to fuel the body’s activities or is stored as fat.[2] When trying to lose weight, you want a calorie deficit, meaning you burn more calories through activity than you take in through food. To gain weight, you do the opposite: eat more calories than you burn in the course of a day. A vegetarian diet offers many calorie-rich options that will help you increase caloric intake without having to cut down on the exercise or activity that keeps you healthy.

NUMBER THREE: CONTINUE EATING HEALTHY CALORIES

The most obvious way to gain weight is to eat unhealthy, fatty vegan options like French fries or sugary pastries. But this is typically not what a person who is underweight actually needs. While there is plenty of fat and calories, these foods are lacking in nutrients such as protein, calcium, fiber, and other important needs for a healthy body.

NUMBER FOUR: EAT PROTEIN-RICH FOOD TO BUILD MUSCLE MASS

A lack of protein is typically the main issue seen with vegan and vegetarian diets. Those following these diets should consistently watch for complete protein. Complete proteins are necessary due to their complete panel of amino acids. However, vegans and vegetarians can consume various protein options that complement one another (called complementary proteins) to form a complete protein that has all 9 essential amino acids. They can also simply consume complete proteins such as garbanzo beans, spirulina, and flax seeds. An example of combined protein would be brown rice and beans.

NUMBER FIVE: EXPLORE SOY ALTERNATIVES

Soy protein is the vegan’s best friend, and is even thought to lower “bad” (LDL) cholesterol levels.[7] However, many vegans do not believe that the consumption of soy is healthy. Tofu and tempeh don’t have much flavor on their own, but they take on the flavor of whatever they’re cooked with while increasing your protein intake. Some people object to tofu’s smooth texture, so you might add TVP (textured vegetable protein) to dishes that need protein that feels like ground meat — tacos, pasta sauces, etc.
