How can I modify the recipes for vegetarians/vegans?

It can be challenging for vegetarians to lower their carbohydrate intake, but it is doable.

Often for vegetarians, we recommend they include 2 shakes a day to ensure they are getting a lower-carbohydrate form of protein.  

Beans are allowed for vegetarians on the program but keep them to the higher protein based beans such as lentils.  

While grains like quinoa contain protein, it is also a high carbohydrate food so you will need to watch your portions.  

Fermented soy products are fine to have as a vegetarian on the program, as well as, nuts (you can increase the portion size to 1oz per meal if needed).
