    Im currently starting to train for a triathlon and need to reduce my body fat%. i keep looking for a good nutrition/diet plan, but all seem to involve eating nuts or peanuts. I have a nut allergy, this screws me over, this include all nuts(pecans, walnuts, cashews etc.) I''m also a bad vegetarian, I try to avoid eating meat as much as possible, but with a nut allergy its hard to avoid, you need protein. Does anyone know where i could find a good nutrition plan that excludes nuts?

    I agree with Bunjamon that a trip to the nutritionist wouldn't hurt. A semi-vegetarian diet with nut allergies sounds difficult.

    I've been looking into the Thrive Diet lately, and noticed that many of the recipes call for nuts. The author recommended to use seeds to replace nuts for protein - specifically sunflower, hemp (which he uses in tons of recipes), and Salba. Also, he recommended buckwheat for those with nut allergies.

    Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

    Peace!

    What is the difference between a Dietician and a Nutritionist?
    A Dietician has a degree and is trained to advise on food, diet and nutrition. A Nutritionist is not a regulated term so a Nutritionist does not have to have any formal education or training.

    I googled 'vegetables protein' and found this information:

    One cup of cooked
    soybeans (29 gms of protein)
    lentils (18 gms of protein)
    black beans (15 gms of protein)
    kidney beans (13 gms of protein)
    chickpeas (12 gms of protein)
    pinto beans (12 gms of protein)
    black-eyed peas (11 gms of protein)
    peas (9 gms of protein)
    spinach (5 gms of protein)
    broccoli (4 gms of protein)

    Maybe there is something there you like.
