As a vegetarian, what do you do
For protein, I eat:
I get between 55 and 85 grams of protein daily, depending on activity level and my day-to-day instincts. This means I average 70 grams daily, slightly above US RDA. I find this sufficient for moderate regular exercise and moderate weight lifting/muscle building. The percentage of protein in my diet averages about 15 percent (with 60-65 percent carbohydrate and 20-25 percent fat).
