    Then that's the answer to your thread. Not possible.

    If it's difficult for highly-paid actors who have the money, time and dedication to invest into it, for you it will be virtually impossible.

    Ignore the useless "advice" given above.

    If you're already meeting your protein needs via supplements then your only other concern is with getting enough calories to increase your weight. And since meat is not particularly high in calories compared to other foods, being vegetarian won't really hamper you in any way.

    Just calculate your TDEE and make sure you eat more calories than that.

    Anybody trying to up their calories specifically by eating more meat is doing it wrong.

    OP, just increase your intake of beans, lentils, rice, bread, potatoes, cheese, oats, milk, bananas, etc. Easy. I get about 4000 cals a day on a veggie diet without even trying.

    I'm not sure what your question is. You can gain muscle on a vegetarian diet.

    Just make sure you hit around 1gram of protein per kg of bodyweight per day, and you'll be OK. Make sure your protein sources are complete. e.g. beans are incomplete, but beans+rice is a complete source of protein.

    Beyond that, adjust calories so that you're in a slight (200-300 Calorie/day) excess per day and you will gain weight.
