Diet Week: Day Five – Vegetarian Diet Plans

[ 73 ] December 30, 2010 |

This is the fifth part of a six-part diet series. Each day this week, we’ll feature a different weight loss program or plan to help you achieve your New Year’s weight loss resolution.

There’s a common misconception that all vegetarians are skinny animal lovers who eat salad at every meal.  But, aside from the animal lovers part, that simply isn’t true! Many vegetarians actually struggle with their weight.

When meat is no longer on the menu, it’s easy to grab a carb-loaded bagel to fill up. Making sure you’re getting the right nutrients is a challenging part of vegetarianism. So in this Diet Week post, we’re comparing diet programs according to the needs of vegetarians.


Nutrisystem is the only diet program on this list that has a meal plan specifically for vegetarians. The plan differs for men and women, but both plans come with pre-packaged vegetarian meals specially formulated to help you curb cravings.

Each plan is easy to follow, with no counting, weighing or measuring required. Just pre-planned Nutrisystem dietitian-approved vegetarian meals. How easy is that? (see our Nutrisystem coupons for savings).


Medifast doesn’t have a vegetarian diet plan, but they do have plenty of vegetarian-friendly Medifast meal options. And, similar to Nutrisystem, you’ll get the meal delivered to your door. Take a scan through Medifast’s PDF document listing their vegetarian options to see what’s on the menu.

Choose 5 vegetarian meals plus one Lean and Green Meal, and you’re set to start losing! Plus, get $50 off orders of $275 or more with our Medifast coupon.

Weight Watchers

With Nutrisystem and Medifast, your vegetarian meals are planned out and delivered directly to your door. With the Weight Watchers program, you’ll have to do a little more work.

Weight Watchers is based on a points system, so you’ll have to figure out your own recipes. But the bonus is that you won’t have to eat the same pre-planned meals everyday (read more about Weight Watchers in our Day Two of Diet Week post).

The Weight Watchers website offers some excellent articles for vegetarians who are counting their points. Check out Tips for Vegetarian EatingLet’s Go Out for…Vegetarian and Vegetarian Slow-Cooker Suppers for great information on vegetarian eating (see our Weight Watchers coupons ).
