Does My Vegan Diet Need More Protein?

By    |   Thursday, 14 August 2014 11:16 AM

Question: I eat a mostly vegan diet — cereal for breakfast, a veggie burger or salad for lunch, and vegetables for dinner. Do I need to worry about getting more protein?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
Yes. You have a very low-calorie diet, and I'm sure this diet could be fine-tuned a little for you and should have its balance reviewed.
You have little protein here, and should consider a consultation with a dietary expert to balance out your protein and fiber intake, as well as to review your calcium and omega-3 intake, which may also be a little low.
