Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

I've been vegetarian for about 7 months now and need some help. Im under weight and I want to gain some weight and some muscle. I want to take protein bars/shakes to help me gain weight. Most products I have looked at are vegetarian and don't contain egg but because there made in places which has egg they say might contain egg. Can i eat this?

Also I have another question if a friend calls me over and i eat at there house can i eat their. Some of my friends are muslim and they have halal, and im not sure if i can. I think about this and the way the gurus lived, the Gurus would sit down and eat with anyone no matter on what religion or race like Guru Nanak Dev Ji thought us.

I also live in a family which does consume meat, and being the only vegetarian im confused at times and need some advice.

They way i feel about this is that as long as my food doesnt contain egg/meat, its fine to eat because it not harming any animal.

Please forgive me if i said anything incorrect or offensive.

The question about eggs and food:

I recommend you also watch part 1 and 2 to get the whole picture. But mostly in this part he talks about your body and the effect that food have and some comments on eggs in the end.

About protein intake I recommend this:

Best Protein Powder

Here is the link for his recommendations if you live in US/CAN/UK/EU or Oceania.

http://scoobysworkshop.com/top-5-best-protein-powders/

Now if you can't find these products at your local market, look at the ingridient list. The ingredients of a good protein powder in his book looks like this “Ingredients: filtered whey, sugar, lecithin” – thats it. Even better if the “sugar” is missing because whey is sweet by itself, it doesn’t need sugar.

Must be filtered.

Good Luck /Cloud

Hello,

I am not a vegetarian. I tried it and it didn't work for me. In order to meet the demands of the job and family my body needs (and astonishingly craves) eggs and fish.

I try to eat conciously; mindful of the sources of the food (e.g. organic) and I eat these things in moderation. I have to be honest there is always a trace of guilt within me when I eat these foods. I think that's decent, it helps me to appreciate the nourishment that I am receiving; so that my body is stronger; durable and able to serve more effectively.

Before becoming vegetarian or adopting any totalitarian diet regime you need to learn to listen to your body. Be in tune with your body; keep it in balance. If you crave an egg; have one with toast; don't just down some scrambled eggs out of panic.

Don't go near protein powders- eggs or no eggs your body has evolved to metabolise proteins found in nature- these concentrated protein powders wreak havoc with your kidneys. Find your protein source in 'normal foods' but as part of a balanced meal with sustainable carbs and veg.

There are millions of people in this world who starve for want of food. I think we are living in luxury if we are agonising over which foods to eat. If you are deliberating over the saint's path of vegetarianism remember that Sikhism advocates Miri-Piri Saint - Soldierhood. This doesn't mean you need to fire up the BBQ as part of Warrior status. It means we need to live in this reality; but with spiritual elegance.

Basically; be in tune with yourself. Your body is your friend. It will let you know what it needs.Use your mind to make sure you're giving it a balanced diet.
