    i was a bit like this for the first week but quorn and meat substitutes are a godsend - go into any big supermarket and there will be a vegetarian frozen section with about everything you could imagine in, just meat-free. today i had meat-free chicken burgers (not very interesting but i was craving it haha)
    they also have meat free minced beef, sausage rolls, paella, meatballs.... literally everything.
    they're also healthier sources of protein but you don't feel like you're missing out.

    because you're probably withdrawing from having a lot of protein you will feel a bit tired until your body adjusts (2-ish weeks), but it gets easier. just get your protein other places

    Norway! My sister's currently trying to be vegan and she's experiencing the same thing. Ukraine try adding protein into your diet through other sources (beans, lentils, quorn, etc) as that's probably the issue...or maybe you're not consuming enough calories..

    Yeah I found it hard, perhaps you could try being a pescatarian so you don't have meat but still fish because it's a really healthy source of protein and keeps me full. When I tried being a vegetarian I couldn't do it cause I started feeling ill

    Oman! Kenya give the OP a break? Maybe she just needs a bit more time - no need to Russia! She just wants to Czech out what being a vegetarian is really like. I'm sure she'll start Havana better time of it soon.

    I don't find I'm hungry all the time, because of cheese and carbs. But I do often, daily, miss meat. Especially steak :emo:

    I get lots of frozen vegeterian meals from my local supermarket, but I finish them so quickly I miss having chicken it filled me up for hours it was the only type of meat I eat. And I wasn't aware of meat free chicken burgers! I'd try that soon

    Eat no fibre

    rely upon universe juice for sustenance

    Hmmm probably eat more veggies? or maybe meat substitutes like quorn like others have suggested... maybe brown bread? stuff that takes longer to digest?

    You should eat more carbs!!! They are essential in a vegetarian diet! Potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, fruit, etc.
    Thats how I stay full
