    Pescatarian looking for diet advice

    Hey everybody! I am new (just getting started, really) to the serious fitness scene, and I am having a difficult time adjusting my diet as I don't eat meat (other than fish, shrimp, etc.). Does anyone have any suggestions? For instance, can I substitute tuna/salmon/etc for the chicken breast and ground turkey, ounce for ounce?

    I have always been pretty active, and I got adequate protein from things such as beans, but I know I need to step it up a notch to reach my new fitness goals. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Buy Tilapia/salmon/tuna are all great substitutions. I personally use tilapia as a low cal cutting food. High in protein, low in calories, and cheap. Also find a good whey protein supplement. I prefer Dymatize whey.

    Great list already..just a few more to add:

    eggs/egg whites (if your allow to eat them, one of the best sources of protein)
    greek yogurt
    low fat cheeses (cottage cheese is a great one)

    All of these are great substitutions. Most people should be doing more of it. Dont forget beans and nuts either.

    This thread has some ideas, but its for real vegetarians (ie no flesh, fish or cow its meat in my op) but still might help you: http://www.ironmagazineforums.com/di...ml#post3022878
