Anyone interested?? I have a lot of information that I've printed out and I am going to put together a fitness and healthy eating plan.

I eat eggs and diary so it's not hard for me to get protein. I am looking to lose about 10lbs from now until August 31st.

Wanna join me?
I'm already a low-carber, but an omnivore. I know you did this one for the vegetarian ones, but you could search the main low carb thread for ideas as well.

I'm hoping more people will chime in and we can keep this thread active and going. I am committed to eating like this and would like to get some support and be supportive.
Is there a vegan version? I would do it for S&G. :-)

There is actually a book geared towards vegetarian low-carbers. http://www.amazon.com/The-Vegetarian.../dp/074992649X

Any takers? It doesn't have to be Atkins style per say. I have had a good bit of luck and I am down 8 lbs.
I'm interested in what you've found. I'm not necessarily wanting a low carb diet, but I eat a lot of carbs and would like to decrease the amount.

We tried cauliflower pizza crust last week, but it wasn't successful.
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

I have a book that has one chapter on it. It seems a lot more difficult than an omnivore version. Beans, fruit, and grains are limited on low carb, depending on your personal carb tolerance. Those things tend to be used a lot in vegetarian diets.

Im also interested in what you've found. I'm a vegetarian and did do Adkins successfully last year to lose 10 pounds. I want to do it again.
i'm not vegetarian. i still eat seafood but no chicken, beef or pork since february. it is harder to get pure protein. i'm drinking a 99% lactose free greens and whey drink in the mornings that doesn't upset my stomach and gives me 20g of protein and i feel full even by lunch. i just try to cut bad carbs a lot.
