What is the vegetarian alternative for beef in the GM diet?
Q: In the 7 days General Motor's diet plan, they talk about lbs, a unit for weight. How much is that? How do we use that unit for measurement in terms of kg? Also, on the 5th and the 6th day, they have beef for the plan. What is the alternative for vegetarians?
A:Lbs is the short form for a pound. The pound is a unit of weight. 1 pound is usually equal to 0.45 kg. therefore 1 kilo is equal to 2.2lbs. As far as the beef goes, it is what we call a Class 1 protein, to give you all the essential amino acids. Class 1 protein, can be obtained from mostly non-vegetarian products. In your case, since you are a vegetarian, go with milk or a milk product like curd, cheese, paneer, etc., on that day. Do not substitute that for sprouts or dals.
