    I was thinking about this the other day, while not a vegetarian at all, I hardly eat red meat anymore, I hardly eat pasta or potatos, and almost no bread. so I started to think about what I do eat. if I were to look at a month at home (cause I do eat very differntly when I travel) here's sort of what a month would look like:

    oatmeal - 4-8 times
    bacon - 4 times
    brown rice 4-8 times
    baby spinach salad - 4-8 times
    zero fat greek yogurt - 10-16 times
    beans - 10-16 times
    tuna - 4-8 times
    home mixed protien shake - 16 times
    store bought protien shake (naked) 4-10 times
    vegetable or broth based soup (home made or at resteraunt) 8 times
    fruit - 10-15 times
    cheese - 10 times
    chicken 2-4 times
    ground beef twice
    cured meat - 4 times
    coffee - 25 times
    ice cream - 2-4 times
    eggs - 4 times

    how about you? anything like this

    Mostly protein, and no meat.

    Eggs. Beans. Yogurt. Almond milk.

    Loads of veggies.

    I am losing tons of weight and keeping muscle.

    B vitamins helps the no meat thing.

    What kind of beans are you guys eating?

    Gauche-Can you expand on what you eat? Maybe give us a typical day or two. It seems like your diet would get rather boring. How much weight have you lost?

    I eat several types of beans - black beans and navy beans, mostly, but also a couple of other types. I buy both dried and canned beans, and then I spice them up, and often add choriso or ham.

    Chicken, brown rice, and assorted veggies make up the foundation of my diet - cheap, easy to prepare, and great for lean muscle gains.

    when i'm cutting it's a lot of chicken breast, lean ground beef, oatmeal, potatoes, sweet potatoes, various starchyish veggies like broccoli, green beans, asparagus, lots of sriracha, and a beer a day.

    when i'm not i just buy whatever i feel like at the market. a little cheese, a little bread, various cured meats, fish, ribeye steaks, and a beer a day
