The Mistakes That Vegetarians Make

There are many health benefits to being a vegetarian.  You will lower your risk for many cancers and lower your blood pressure for instance.  However, some vegetarians actually gain weight because they are making the wrong food choices.  Here are some of the reasons why vegetarians gain weight :

  • Eat too many carbs – This is a common mistake made by vegetarians.  Eating too many carbs without enough protein will spice your blood sugar and increase stress hormones in your body.  This can increase fat in your belly area.  Dr. Oz suggests eating more lentils, quinoa, hemp seeds, almonds, and Greek yogurt in place of foods that are high in carbs.
  • Eating too much processed foods – Packaged foods that have been highly processed are generally loaded with calories, fat and sodium.  Cut down on your processed foods by eating no more than 3 packaged meals each week.  Also try to eat 1 cup of veggies with each packaged meal that you consume during the weak.  Look for whole grains on the label.
  • Eating too much cheese – Cheese is high in fat and calories as well.  However, some cheeses are healthier than others.  Swap in feta and goat cheese in place of higher fat/calorie cheeses.
