Meal ideas

Hi im new here :)

I am wanting a little help with more healthy eating ideas, I have to lose a stone before i start my IVF treatment, and already this week i have lost 4 1/2 pounds, but just wanting something different for tea so it doesn't start to get boring, I am a vegetarian so whatever meal ideas you give me please can it be without meat :)

Thank you

Hi nataleah91,

Welcome to the NHS Weight Loss forum :D

It's great that you've already lost 4.5lb on your journey to be able to have IVF! :)

You can find the NHS 12 Week Plan to the right of your screen - just click on the picture!

Take a look at the right hand side of your screen (bottom if you're on a mobile device) at the 'pinned posts' area - here is a collation of various useful posts (such as the 'Welcome Newbie' post and challenges that are currently being run on the forum - take part in what ever you want to)

In that 'Pinned Posts' section, there is also a collation of recipe ideas, I'm sure that there will be some vegetarian ideas there :D

The Monday Weigh In group is posted weekly, Lowcal and moreless, who are also our approachable site admins alternate the posting of the thread between them. There is a morning thread (if you weigh in between 06:30 until midday) and an afternoon/evening thread (from midday on Monday until 6pm on the Friday of that week).

The topics section, underneath the 'pinned posts' area will give you all of the posts related to that topic - it's useful if you're looking for something specific! :)

Finally, all that remains is to wish you a great first week on the forum!

Best wishes,

Rob :D


Hello and welcome

I eat pretty much the same type of meals that I ate before just extra veg and smaller portions. 😊 I particularly like Mediterranean type foods, and make lasagna, pasta dishes, stuffed peppers, stuffed mushrooms etc 😊 When if get colder vegetable casseroles are hearty and filling. Chickpeas and lentils are useful for protein.

Curries and Chinese style meals also work well without meat 😊

Good luck
