    Vegetarian protein supplementation

    My daughter is a vegetarian and I've decided to try it for a while, as a way to bond with her and also to see how I feel on a meatless diet.

    We're not going full vegan so eggs are still on the table, however, I have already started to cut dairy out of my diet to see if it will help some digestive issues. So I don't want to take whey protein. Chicken and fish are usually my primary sources of protein.

    I found Vega protein on sale at Costco and picked up a couple tubs. Going to supplement with probably one shake a day, hoping that will help me get enough protein.

    The ingredient profile doesn't look too bad. Anybody have any experience or opinions on it? I'm having trouble uploading the image but here is the link.

    I would look into the egg source proteins also.

    No casein is a form of bovine protein

    Not sure but let me know how you like that plant based protein? Iím slowly moving away from meat myself, just to try it out for health benefits. Not looking to make a total change but just ease up on the meat.

    I started this one today so I will provide an update after I've used it a while. First impression isn't bad. I've had some seriously nasty pea protein but this one tastes decent and mixes well with a pretty good consistency. This particular one has caffeine so I'll only use earlier in the day. I couldn't pass it up at $15 a tub, normal price is at least $25. From the reviews I've read this brand seems to be pretty good.

    I don't think I will stay meatless but I'm interested in seeing how my body reacts. When I do go back, I may significantly reduce my meat consumption depending on how this experiment goes.

    the amount of protein you or your daughter needs is way less than what 'they' being the supp and food industries want you to think

    the truth is an efficient body can run perfectly fine on very little protein or food for that matter. the ironic thing is the more food and protein you consume following these stupid copy/paste bodybuilding diets, the more food you will need over time. that is called the body adjusting. the truth is less is better. some days I don't even eat. other days i have 1 meal. other days i have 2-3 meals. the key is i eat HEALTHY and nutritious food. i dont put processed or refined crap in my body

    so my point is you don't need to supplement with a powder at all to get your dietary needs.

    As stevesmi said it's unlikely you actually need to supplement protein powders to begin with. It is an interesting topic though for sure, since my experience revolves around whey protein isolate.

    I agree, and I'm not trying to get some crazy amount of protein. I know people who swear they need 300-400 grams a day or else they'll waste away into nothing. I'm sure cycling AAS does warrant a higher intake but that just seems crazy to me.

    I follow IF protocol ranging from 16/8 to 20/4 and I don't count calories or macros for the most part. I generally try to get in anywhere from .75 - 1 gram of protein per pound of lean mass.

    I let my body be my guide. When I eat too much protein I get really nasty gas so I know I need to back off a little.
