Designed especially for vegetarian women

Enjoy delicious vegetarian high-protein recipes without spending hours in the kitchen.

Many vegetarians don’t get enough protein

And that’s a serious problem. Without enough protein you’ll:

  • Feel less satisfied and want to snack more
  • Find it harder to control cravings
  • Struggle with building muscle

But with enough protein you’ll:

  • Feel fuller and more satisfied
  • Crave fewer unhealthy snacks
  • Maintain or build muscle more easily

This is also a major reason why people fail in lifestyle or health goals. They simply don’t have the right balance with their food and they don’t even know it.

Why protein helps with health and weight loss

By kicking those cravings, snacks and hunger-pangs you’ll naturally eat fewer calories. 

And as protein requires more energy to break down, you’ll start burning more calories, too.

And finally, muscle uses more energy than fat. By holding on to the muscle you have, your body will have to burn even more calories in your regular day to day activities. 

Why vegetarian women face unique problems

A well-balanced vegetarian diet can be exceptionally healthy. However, when not done properly, the diet can bring in far too many carbs and fats at the expense of protein.

Carbs and fats are not the enemy (no matter what youtubers or health gurus will have you believe). However, too much of either will cause fat and weight gain.

Women can also have extra trouble shifting post-pregnancy ‘baby gain’, as well as menopausal changes bringing new challenges.

Bottom Line: It’s not easy to get enough protein as a vegetarian without taking on too much fat. This is especially true while trying to lose weight in a healthy manner.

I don’t know how I stumbled across your website and meal plans but it’s honestly been life changing. I have shared it amongst my veggie friends and even my carnivore hubby is on board. Thank you so much I have lost 1 and 1/2 kgs already and feeling so good. This will be a lifestyle for me now.

The Protein Formula for Success: Our 2 Stage System

We’ve created a simple but powerful 2-stage system. 

Stage 1 is to help you lose weight. Stage 2 is for weight maintenance or toning up.

It is important to do these steps one at a time. People who try both at once usually fail. Follow the plans one at a time and you will succeed.

Both are included in your membership.

Stage 1: Slim downStage 2: Tone up
ProteinMin 85gMin 105g
Calories1500kcal2000kcal

Please note: Macronutrient values may vary slightly to the table on a day by day basis to allow recipe flexibility, but they are planned to balance over the week.

Stage 1: Slim down

Base meal plans are at 1250kcal/day with just breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll always get at least 60g protein with these base meals.

On top of that you’ll have one snack and one protein shake for another total of 25g protein and 250kcal, if you want them.

That way you’ll always arrive at a minimum of 85g of protein and 1500kcal per day. 

This puts you into the high protein range which is perfect for weight loss while still getting a nutrient-rich, balanced diet. The total calories are ideal for sustainable weight loss over short or long periods of time and will keep you thriving and full of energy.

Stage 2: Tone up

It’s very simple: when you’re ready to tone up just add the optional snack to the meal plan with a click of a button. That’ll bump up your intake another 500kcal and 20g of protein.

In total you’ll receive 100g of protein in 2000kcal, perfect for an active lifestyle.

You can also replace the protein shake for a different snack if you wish. Don’t worry, the plan will still work. We’ll also supply loads of ideas for tasty high-protein snacks.

3 weeks in, 3 pounds down. Exercising more regularly. Meal prepping is getting into a better groove. Just made a big batch of the pasta with peanut sauce. Oh my goodness! 🤩 it’s fabulous!

“Love, love this site. Been an overweight vegetarian for 25+ years. I’ve been looking for ways to increase protein intake. Your recipes are delicious and fast – that’s the main thing for me…

I’ve lost 2.8 pounds but more importantly, the nighttime snacking is gone. I am never hungry and have plenty of energy. (I’ve also, so far, gotten out of some bad habits. ie – binging on junk one day, feeling guilty and so really limiting calories the next).”

Who we are

Yes, we are three men who specialise in helping vegetarian women lose weight. Sound crazy? Maybe not as much as you’d think…

Dave: Food for Friendly Fuel!

I turned vegetarian nearly ten years ago for animal welfare reasons. My mother had also gained a lot of weight and was very frustrated. I decided to dig into the science behind it, all the while cooking animal-friendly and tasty meals.

I’m happy to say she has lost 10kgs (22lbs) and kept it off! If she can do it, anyone can. Sometimes we all need a little nudge in the right direction (and to feel the power of science done right).

I’m also a bit of a speed/efficiency freak when it comes to meal prepping, and want the food on my plate as quick and easily as possible.

James: Food for Body Composition

I joined HurryTheFoodUp in 2020 as their nutritionist. I’m a Sport Nutritionist (SENr registered and MSc Sport Nutrition) as well as triathlete, having raced for the Age Group Great Britain Triathlon Team.

I love helping people with losing weight and building muscle because it’s such a rewarding process. When done properly, weight loss doesn’t have to be a daunting, unhappy journey. Instead, you can eat great food and feel great and that’s what I love helping our HTFU members with.

Hauke: Food for General Fitness and Hiking

I would consider myself a sports generalist: I run, play footie, do yoga and have phases where I hit the gym for strength training. Also, I like to go on longer hiking trips.

When I don’t have an eye on my diet I tend to eat too little, making me feel depleted at times with too much exercise going on. Luckily our website HurryTheFoodUp is a perfect help to up my calories and protein – in a healthy way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much weight can I realistically lose each week?

We have designed our meal plans to help you lose weight at roughly 1lb (½ kg) every week. We planned the numbers of calories, fats, proteins and carbs needed to keep you feeling satisfied and full of energy.

How much does it cost?

The membership is $9/month.

You can also get a yearly membership for $90, which is equivalent to getting two months free! Also included are lots of helpful bonuses.

We recommend this option as you can use it to transition from weight loss to weight maintenance or muscle-building whenever you are ready.

Can men use these meal plans?

Yes. Although we designed it with women (and science) in mind, men can also use this as a high protein weight loss plan. You would start on tier 2 instead of tier 1 for weight loss, and for weight maintenance you would add an extra meal or large snack to get to around 2,500 calories per day.

Can I get a refund?

Of course! If you’re not happy with your new membership any time in the first 30 days then just reply to any email from Dave and he’ll refund you, no questions asked.

Can I cancel anytime?

Sure! Anytime you like.

I can’t use the meal plans for a couple of weeks, can I pause my membership?

Also yep! Only use it when you need.

Why do you use dollars? Dollars isn’t my currency.

We use dollars as it’s the most recognized universal currency. Don’t worry, you can pick your local currency at checkout. You can pay by credit card or Paypal.

Do you deliver the food?

No, we don’t deliver, nor do we provide the food! We’ll make your shopping lists but you’ll still have to buy/order your groceries yourself. That goes for the cooking, too.

Are the shopping lists updated automatically?

Yes! Depending on which recipes you choose to make, and for how many people – everything is changed automatically. You don’t need to change a thing yourself.

Is it complicated to adjust meal plans to more or less people?

Happily every single recipe can simply be toggled for as many servings/people as you like!

Will it be possible to do these meal plans in the UK – I mean will measures and weights be easy to convert? I’ve seen you use the American ‘cup’ measurements.

Yep, absolutely! We have metric and imperial measurements for all of our recipes – you can just toggle between them on each recipe.

Why shouldn’t I lose weight faster? My friend lost loads doing keto!

Yes, they probably did! And did they gain it back again? Both scientific research and through speaking to thousands of ‘dieters’ shows that weight gain after keto or other ‘flavour of the month’ diets is real and severe.
We want to avoid weight gain at all costs – we want to help you lose weight steadily, consistently and then help you to stay at a healthy weight after. We aim for consistency and a slower rate of weight loss is better for this.

I can’t eat dairy or nuts, then are these meal plans not an option for me?

You can change every meal and snack to your liking (and we have a huge list of non-dairy, non-nut recipes and snacks to choose from). Each of the ready-made meal plans we have does include dairy and quite often nuts, however.

What is everything you incorporate? Is sugar/honey forbidden? Bread bought at the grocery store ok? Must I make everything myself?

Sugar/honey/maple syrup? No, it’s not forbidden, some recipes call for sugar or maple syrup, just in smaller amounts.


We look at overall calories, protein, fat, and saturated fat when we create meal plans and recipes.


Everything from scratch? No, not necessary either. We don’t doom processed food per se. A tin of tomatoes is processed. And it’s absolutely fine to use. Same as store-bought pesto or hummus. Yes, bread bought at the store is absolutely fine!

Is it suitable for a 65 year old – i.e. not too complicated technology?

In fact, most of our members are around 40 – 75 years old. We get the occasional question about our meal planner. If that happens Hauke will jump right on to help you individually (not just a generic tutorial video).

Do I get all the necessary nutrition from these meal plans if I am going to be pregnant maybe next month? I have always wanted to switch to a vegetarian menu but can I do this during pregnancy? Would love to!

We wouldn’t advise you to lose weight while being pregnant, and would recommend speaking to your health professional about it.
