    I don’t like some of the vegetables in your recipes,could I swap them for a low starch alternative in the same list .Ie instead of spinach could I use cabbage or cauliflower without it compromising the weight loss.
    Cheers Janet

    Hi there,

    As far as our example recipes go there are a few suitable options:
    Basil infused tofu bake
    Baked Mediterranean vegetables with cottage cheese
    Pepper mushrooms with chickpeas on rye
    Vegetable and tofu curry
    Red lentil & chickpea stew
    Vegetarian cauliflower & chickpea curry
    Baked stuffed eggplant
    Indian lentil stew
    Black bean soup
    Lentil patties with mustard & vinegar dressing

    Because you are vegetarian and do not eat eggs your choices for protein would be limited to:
    Milk
    Greek yoghurt
    Soft cheeses i.e. Ricotta or cottage cheese
    Hard cheeses
    Legumes and beans (includes hummus)
    Tofu
    You could also try adding in a protein powder (whey or plant derived)

    Kind Regards,

    BT Nutritionist.

    Can you turn the meals around so you can have the main meal a lunch time and the shakes at breakfast dinner and super time

    Hi there,

    We’re assuming you are in the first phase of the program (3 shakes and 1 meal a day)?

    You could choose to have your meal at lunch time if you wish. You might be better off having your final shake of the day at dinner time though rather than having another one for supper.

    So for example your day would look as follows:
    Breakfast: Shake
    Morning Tea: Shake (alternatively you could have this as an afternoon tea option)
    Lunch: Protein meal
    Dinner: Shake

    Kind Regards,

    BT Nutritionist 🙂
