Question: I love certain aspects such as, skin is clearer, anxiety is down, sleep is pretty good. But I am exhausted and I am really tired and i am lacking motivation in exercise, which sucks!!! What gives what should I be doing?? I will give you example of my diet. Breakfast: Apple and spinach in nutri bullet Snack: 2 cups grapes Snack: half raw cucumber Snack: ( sometimes oatmeal) Lunch Sweet potato raw snack yogurt snack:banana Exercise for 40 mins Dinner 2 cups broccoli with olive oil lemon sauce 1 can chickpeas S- I am aware that no meat isn't the same thing as plant based. That is why I listed my diet below the question so that you can see that for the most part that i am eating is a plant based diet. I was just making the statement I don't eat meat, but thank you for the information.

They are right about the protein. But you may also not be eating enough calories in your day as well. You want to cut calories a little but not so drastically that your body doesn't have enough energy to keep you going. Try combining some protein with your carb based meals & snacks (like your sweet potato at lunch) and adding some carb snacks to your protein based snacks (like the yogurt). Breakfast should also be the biggest meal of the day since itll help provide long lasting energy throughout the day.

If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular “fad” diets out there. Go here https://tr.im/vmo4Z The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it’s just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it’s a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

No meat is not at all the same as plant-based? Lol. There are all the other food groups: dairy, grains/breads, fruit, vegetables. Meat is only one food category. Vegan however is plant-based (but that doesn't mean like raw leaves, yum. For example, nuts, breads, fruits are all technically plant-based). Also, it's a TOTAL myth that vegetarians (no meat/fish) can't get enough protein. It's actually ridiculously easy, if your diet isn't already shitty (like, don't eat Doritos all day).

You need to eat. Your hardly eating enough, especially if your eating only fruits and veggies. Did you know that individuals on a raw food diet eat about 50 servings of fruits and veggies a day! I suggest you incorporate a couple more servings of dairy, eggs or oats into your diet. For example, try granola, yogurt, and fruit.

I agree with the previous post about the protein, but since I believe you posted this in vegetarian forum, here are my suggestions: quinoa, eggs, lentils, beans Also, it seems to me that you need more calories overall, not necessarily empty calories, but from nutritious meals. Even if you are trying to lose some weight, you need to have enough to keep you healthy.

Marielle Originally Answered: is peanut butter part of protein diet?
Peanut butter is great if your trying to gain weight or build body mass but rather for the scential oils and nutrients it contains than for the protein...Is a great stabilizer for diets just don´t eat more than 4 full spoon a day or It will slow down your digestive system wich will allow long chained carbs to be absorved easilyinto your body and will make chances of decomposing proteins bigger
