I'm interested as to what protein you have? Apparently one of the main causes of over-eating and being hungry, is the body is trying to consume more protein.
Hi Juddy, I'm not sure why people pick protein as a source of concern for vegetarians. I find it quite easy to include protein in my diet, for me it's getting enough zinc if I don't enough of the right foods. Here's a short list of foods which are good for vegetarians:
Protein - beans, nuts, nut butters, peas and soy products
Iron - whole wheat breads, peas, some dried fruits (apricots, prunes, raisins), spinach, kidney beans, black-eyed peas, lentils, turnip greens, molasses and iron-fortified cereals
Calcium - soy products (tofu, soy milk), some dark green leafy vegetables (collard greens, turnip greens, bok choy, mustard greens), fortified breakfast cereals, and calcium fortified orange juice
Zinc - beans (white, kidney and chickpeas), wheat germ, pumpkin seeds and zinc-fortified breakfast cereals.
Vitamin B 12 - nutritional yeast, B 12 fortified cereals, veggie burgers and soy milk.
And here's an article which also talks about protein and vegetarians
