    i've come to the conclusion that my diet is... well, poor. today my meals were typical:

    no breakfast
    lunch comprising of tomato, pasta and cheese bake and quorn chicken fillets in tomato sauce followed by a time out bar
    dinner of half a cheese and onion quiche followed by a couple of mini rolls

    yesterday i had:

    no breakfast
    lunch of a four cheese pizza
    dinner of two packets of curry flavour noodles

    i drink an awful lot of fizzy drinks too. i've preferred water recently though. i'm vegetarian which makes my diet all the more difficult. and the thing is, i'm really picky about my food. i hate most vegetables bar carrots, potatoes, leeks, cauliflower, brocoli and spinach. i already have a narrow diet thanks to my vegetarianism and there's no way i'm going back to meat just so i can be healthy. i don't want to take any supplements because i think i can get all my nutrients from a good diet, but with such a limited taste, it's becoming more and more difficult. i like trying new things but they often come with food i hate like mushrooms and courgettes.

    does anyone have any ideas of what i could do to improve my diet? or any recipes? i just feel like i'm going to waste away soon!

    I'm a vegetarian too, I hate vegetables too. Well not hate, just they don't taste nice but I eat them occassionally.

    You have to eat well. You will as everyone always says notice the effects on the inside and outside, and of course it will help prevent illness for now and later on.

    Cut out fizzy drinks, the sugar is really bad for your teeth. Replace with water and fruit juices (which count as 1 portion of fruit).

    Have 5 portions of fruit and vegetables. Eat calcium and protien rich foods, seeing as you'll probably lacking getting this from your meat, this is a must! Have cereals in the morning for brain power and so you don't get too hungry and snack. And just eat generally healthy foods such as brown bread, pasta etc.

    Providing you are relatively slim you can then eat what you wish, if you fancy a packet of crips or chips but don't over do it.

    Seriously you'll feel much better.

    LOL, why is it? What is the link between not eating meat and liking vegetables? You do not have to eat either to survive!

    Dairy, carbohydrates, vegetarian meat supliments, fatty shite and things which you cannot taste vegetables in. I can tolerate them though.

    It's just the thought of a vegetarian not liking vegetables. You must hate meat more, if vegetarianism is optional for you.

    I get that too "How can you call yourself a vegetarian if you don't like this. Carrots are the best things for you", bleh bleh. It's 'cause of the veg thing which they link to liking vegetables. :rolleyes:

    Fruit juices then, they are a quick an easy portion. Surely you like them?

    I know it's an odd thought! And another "have you ever seen a fat vegetarian?". I don't hate either really, I just like to eat only things that taste nice. But I'm not a vegetarian because I dislike the taste of meat.

    Switching to juice is not a good idea, a) because the reason it tastes so damn good is because of the sugar in it, its fructose not glucose. b) cos it raises the acidity levels in your body.

    You should drink in fluid ounces, half your body weight in pounds, of water a day minimum.

    And diet so you dont like vegetables but you are a vegetarian. I dont know what type of vegetarian you are, but if you can eat fish, then eat it. If you dont like oily fish then eat freshwater or white fish. Salmon is good too.

    There are lots of ways of making your vegetables more attractive and if you play around, fry stuff, like peppers and onions its good.

    Oh yeah and breakfast should be the biggest meal of the day. Breakfast like a king and supper like a pauper as your body uses calories through the day not through the night.

    I'm the same! I'm a vegetarian, and i like some vegetables, but some are just so bland, and being a veggie doesn't automatically mean i like them! I love stuff like quorn and the carbohydrate based things such as yorkshire puddings

    Errr, simple solution, eat properly. Meat and vegetables. The amount of vegetarians that are around these days is a joke. Lots of people just jump on the vegetarian bandwagon as well..

    Why then? Because animals get killed? Animals get killed all the time, get over it, its been happening for millions of years. Jesus
