Improve vitality, live longer and lose weight for good.

A 12-week course designed especially for vegetarian women who want better health in the long term.

Welcome to The Vegetarian Protein Fix.

Most diets fail for a simple reason – they’re unsustainable for real people in everyday life.

After successfully helping our mothers to lose weight and live more healthily, we knew we could be the change for others in a similar situation.

We found that people struggled to beat hunger when on a diet – they just weren’t full or satisfied after eating.

On top of that, you’ve probably found cravings difficult to deal with and have often ended up snacking in between meals or desperately needing something sweet after dinner.

For weight loss to actually happen, it needs to be consistent, enjoyable and as stress-free as possible.

This means we have to reduce hunger and cravings, and improve that feeling of fullness.

Can you really lose weight by eating more protein?

Whether you’re fully vegetarian or just eating less meat, it’s important not to fall victim to what we’ve named The Protein Gap.

Vegetarian meals are often lacking in one crucial component – protein.

While an omnivore can add lean meat for protein, vegetarians don’t have that option and often just load up more pasta, bread or potatoes to try and fill the void.

Protein helps to reduce levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin, while it increases the appetite-reducing hormones like cholecystokinin. (1)

Essentially, it makes you feel more full after eating.

As a vegetarian, there’s a good chance you’re not getting enough protein in your day-to-day meals.

In fact, a major cause of weight gain can be from eating extra to try and fill this Protein Gap – even if we don’t notice it at the time. (2

Then you become the next victim of the dreaded Calorie Trap.

For example, cheese or nuts: yes, they contain a lot of protein. 

BUT they also contain a high amount of fat and therefore, calories. 

Even if you end up at the same amount of protein as a meat eater, there’s a strong chance you’ve taken in far more calories to get the same effect – what we call ‘The Calorie Trap’.

Which seems unfair right? You’re vegetarian yet it feels like you’re being punished for it.

This is where The Vegetarian Protein Fix comes in.

By making use of a good variety of vegetarian high-protein foods and handling fats and carbs in a smart way, we’re able to restore balance and bring back peace of mind.

Excited to see how it looks on a plate? Below are some of our recipes designed especially for The Vegetarian Protein Fix.

Meals Created With a Protein-First Approach.

But what makes the recipes different? We reveal our 3 “secrets” to weight loss:

The key is getting enough protein without overdoing fats and carbs. It is a simple, yet powerful way to bring nutritional harmony back to meal times.

Getting the protein right first (so you feel more full and less stressed about food) ensures a consistent, natural calorie deficit over time which then leads to weight loss.

Then making it consistent is key, and that’s where most people fail. Here’s where we take over.

Every recipe aims for higher protein and lower fat than usual without sacrificing taste. Here is how are able to up the protein:

We’ll show you that dishes can be just as tasty with these three big recipe changes (and many other minor ones).

The beauty is that we are able to significantly tip the health and protein levels back into balance.

This helps to remove the hunger pangs and cravings which cause yoyo dieting and binge eating.

Enjoy life and look forward to a longer, healthier future.

Once you get the protein right, you get something else: satisfaction.

Hunger takes a back seat and cravings disappear. Our members are often surprised by how much more filling a well-planned and balanced vegetarian meal can be.

We fuse art and science to create the best-tasting recipes in scientifically-planned but easy-to-follow meal plans that really work for everyday life.

We also take care of the nutrition so you don’t have to worry about it. Peace of mind is important.

  • We create new recipes every month. These are specifically designed with high-protein and healthy weight loss in mind. As a Weekly Meal Planner you get full access to them and all our member’s only recipes, instantly.
  • Our recipes are quick and easy. We’ve spent years refining them so we spend less time in the kitchen and more time doing the things we want. Nearly every recipe can be made in 30 minutes or under. The ones that take longer are usually ‘make and bake’ and the oven does most of the work.

It’s important to have healthy snack ideas that actually satisfy cravings. This is what our snack vault has to offer! We’ve put together 45+ creative and weight loss-friendly snacks that you can easily add to your meal plans.

“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

Yep, you’ve got that right.

We’re three guys who specialise in helping women to lose weight.

It might sound odd at first glance but it all starts with our mums. Dave and James are brothers, and Hauke and Dave met while travelling in Australia.

We share a common theme that our mums had gained weight and were frustrated at having tried and failed countless diets. 

Having already created HurryTheFoodUp and coming up with delicious vegetarian recipes, Dave and Hauke’s focus turned to using those dishes to help with weight loss.

James came on board as the registered Nutritionist and things exploded from there.

Together we created The Vegetarian Protein Fix which has now helped hundreds of vegetarian women lose weight and keep it off for good.

Our recipes are perfect for females looking to lose weight, because we take a conscientious approach to the different stages of a woman’s life. Again, this started by taking our mother’s needs into focus.

Our recipes include dairy which are excellent sources of calcium, which is important to help prevent osteoporosis, especially after menopause.

Our use of wholegrain carbohydrates and variety of vegetables help keep iron content high, which can help reduce any deficiency associated with menstrual bleeding.

We use James’ nutrition knowledge to design meal plans that use our taste-tested recipes and leave our members feeling full and satisfied

Importantly, our system follows Government guidelines for healthy eating and all our work is evidence-based. 

We focus on cultivating a good relationship with your food and your eating habits, removing any feeling of guilt and showing you the path to consistency.

James also provides helpful nutrition information along the way, as well as diving into the psychological aspects of weight loss and how to tackle problems that can crop up.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a membership subscription?

No, it’s a one time purchase. But you’ll have lifetime access including all upgrades. The Vegetarian Protein Fix stays open, so you can always go into your membership section for any information at any time.

How much weight can I realistically lose within these 12 weeks?

6-8kgs or 13-15lbs is realistic. We 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.

Why the focus on women?

We focus on one thing and do it right. Our meal plans are designed specifically for women both in calories per day and serving size.

We take a conscientious approach to the different stages of a woman’s life. Our recipes include dairy which are excellent sources of calcium, which is important to help prevent osteoporosis, especially after menopause.

Our use of wholegrain carbohydrates and variety of vegetables help keep iron content high, which can help reduce any deficiency associated with menstrual bleeding.

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 at 1800kcals 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 90 days then just reply to any email from Dave and he’ll refund you, no questions asked. We’re completely confident our course will help you succeed which is why we’ve included such a long guarantee!

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 (or regain) at all costs – we want to help you lose weight steadily and 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 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.

Isn’t Semaglutide (Wegovy and Ozempic) an easier choice?

They are very expensive, still need a healthy diet to work well, and initial reports show that most people yoyo back to their original weights soon after stopping to take them.

We want to empower you to take control of your health through nutrition, and be able to implement it for the rest of your life, regardless of how long you stay with us.

Something we do have in common with these weight loss drugs is that you will feel more full with our recipes, which is one of the key ways that Semaglutide works.

How do I stop myself from gaining weight again after?/ How does your course stop me from putting weight back on after?

This is an incredibly important topic which we cover from every angle on the course. We help you to notice and understand cravings and triggers. How they happen, why they happen, and how we can avoid them. You’ll also learn to spot typical tricks and traps of the food industry.
