Fat Burning Vegetarian Meal Plan 2000 Calories

I called in a favor yesterday, and sent my fat burning 2000 calorie meal plan to vegetarian fat loss expert John Alvino for review.
 
"John", I said, "Take my normal meal plan and create a vegan version of it. Stick to around 2000 calories (the number of calories I'd eat for fat loss)."
 
"Oh, and one more thing," I said. "NO protein shakes."
 
(I took a "vow of protein shake celibacy" back in 2005. There's just no need for them - in my opinion - when there is plenty of real food to go around...and I never plan on drinking another protein shake again.)
 
So here's the fat burning vegan meal plan John sent back...
 
6:30am - water and vitamin C before dog walk
 
[Make sure that the vitamin C capsule is made from vegetable cellulose and vegetable stearate.  If that's not the case, that
capsule will be made from gelatin-yikes!]

8:30am - Breakfast bowl of blueberries, pecans, a banana, a tbspn almond butter, coconut flakes. Green Tea.
 
11am - Chick pea burgers and side of mixed vegetables.
 
[Chick pea burger recipe
 
1 cup finely ground oat
1 cup walnuts
1 cup brown rice
1 can rinsed and drained chick peas
3 scallions chopped
1 red pepper finely chopped
hot pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
2 tbsp water
 
Add oats and walnut into blender and blend until chopped remove from blender and put into bowl.  Next add chick peas to blender and blend until smooth.  Remove and add to bowl with oats and walnuts.  Add remaining ingredients.  Mix well.
 
Spray baking sheet with Pam spray.  Spoon out mixture with tablespoon and flatten to form patties.  Cook at 375 degrees for 25 min]
 
1pm - Workout!
 
2pm - Vegan post workout bar such as a Cliff  "Builders" Bar, taste great, convenient and supply 20 grams of quality protein.
 
3pm - Large garden salad with extra virgin olive oil, a bowl of split pea soup an apple and some raw cashews.
 
7pm - Dinner of Lentils and barley stew and Spinach salad.

10pm - Raw nuts and apple or pear
 
***************
Interesting stuff John, I may just have to give this a try someday...
 
Granted, my regular meal plan isn't too much different than that. I usually have eggs instead of chick-pea burgers, and every other day have meat for dinner. Plus, of course, I prefer my after-exercise Chocolate Milk to the Clif bar.
 
But overall, I know this will give you some great ideas on how you can lose fat with a vegetarian diet (and even a vegan diet)!

Couldn't agree more Craig. I came across John's site just a few weeks before the TT TC#4 contest finished and followed his eating plan. NEVER felt hungry, went from 116.6 lbs down to 111.8 lbs in just over 2 weeks, built muscle, and lost that last bit of cellulite whilst using your Buff Dudes Hot Chicks program. :) He's a genius! (and so are you).

Thanks to you both,

Robyn.

Vegetarian weight loss diet meal plan is the phrase almost superfluous. To learn how to lose weight so you can find how to use fruits and vegetables part of Every meal and snack. Obviously only! You will be amazed at how hackers simply disappear as you enter the body what it really wants and needs!
