Q&A: Can i be a vegetarian and get a 6-pack?

Question by Ryan L: Can i be a vegetarian and get a 6-pack?
Ive been working out now consistently for about 2 and a half weeks. Ive also been a vegetarian for the past month. Im trying really hard to get a sick pack and i was just wondering if it is possible to get them being a vegetarian. I am an 18 year old college student and the food they serve here isn’t the best for you. So that’s why i became a vegetarian, to try and eat more healthy foods.

As of right now i go to the gym 7 days a week. Everyday i do at least an hour of cardio, whether its on the speed bikes or the elliptical or the treadmill. And then every other day i do cardio for the hour again after i have lifted weights for an hour.

As far as my meals i stay away from junk food, maybe eating something unhealthy once or twice a week. I have a bowl of oatmeal, a small portion of eggs and a glass of soy milk every morning for breakfast and then for lunch and dinner i have lots of vegetables and more soy milk to make sure i have enough protein.

From what i have said is there anything different i should be doing or am i on the right track to solid abs?
oh ya i forgot to mention that too. I have a handful of almonds and a handful of mixed nuts everyday along with an apple and a banana for lunch.

    Of course you can, though try to get a bit more protein into your diet, things like nuts pulses lentils and stuff. Im assuming you’re american so im not entirely sure what veggy stuff you have over there but here we have quorn and other products that are loaded with protein, all of this will help you bulk up.
    My boyfriend has been a vegetarian since he was 7 and he has one so its totally possible. Meat has a really high level of fat in it and isnt tolerated well by the human body, you’re much more likely to get a six pack if you’re veggy :)
    Hope this helps.
