I know this is an old thread but Im a new member and wanted to give you my .02cents w/o a played out meat joke...
I went vegetarian for about a 2 years and still maintained a "walk around" weight of 195. It didnt hurt that my gf at the time was a vegan but we split in year 1 and I continued for another year afterwards. Its not nearly as difficult as people make it out to be these days, it just requires a bit of research and alot of home prep of your meals since you wont find a ton of veg friendly restaurants in the suburbs. However they are available...BK makes a veggie burger that you have to ask for specifically, not on the menu...as well as subway if youre caught out and have no option but fast food. Also the options available today versus only products like green star meatless hockey pucks have made great strides and great products can be found at HEB, wholefoods...even walmart if you're lucky.
So I ramble, my apologies. The two books I would recommend are Thrive Fitness and Vegetarian Sports Nutrition Guide. Thrive is written by a vegetarian pro triathlete and is filled with great recipes and other pro athlete bios and their meal plans from NFL players to bodybuilders and everything in between
Hope this was useful and good luck
