is there a vegetarian option?

Is there an alternative you can recommend to bread in the menus? I struggle with bloated stomach and feeling sluggish after any type of  bread andso don't run well, wraps are fine but this wouldn't offer the same nutrition would it, nor does it seem the same as having toast for breakfast? I'm sure this isn't uncommon.

I would also like a vegetarian diet option. Thanks

I like the look of the menus, but as I am both wheat and dairy free I would have to substitute a lot of things.

I realise that I am doubly awkward, but it would be nice if some diet plans actually took into account that there are a large number of wheat free people (both due to coeliac and IBS) out there.

It's surprising how many people are veggie/vegan or don't include wheat or gluten in their diets and yet sites such as this one - which is generally excellent - are still poor at giving options to the standard meat/fish/gluten-containing meals in the diet plans. Come on RB, with all those experts at your disposal, help us out. Thanks :)

As a non-wheat eater myself I can answer that one for you: most supermarkets now have a very wide range of wheat-free products, and most of them are pretty tasty; wheat-free pasta, bread (Toasted it's nice, avoid untoasted as it's got about as much moisture as sand in the sahara...), wheat-free pitta's, wraps, crisp-breads and crackers, you name it! All can be well substituted with ease! The only one I can't help with is the cous-cous... But I'm quite sure a bed of rice would work just as well! As for vegetarian options surely just changing the meat for quorn/tofu/fish(if you eat it) is acceptable? I think the kind folks at the running bug couldn't possibly cover every dietary need (unless they were really, really bored...). Just use a little imagination ;)

I too am a coeliac and I also need to prepare meals that are speedy, being a mother of two young kids with a full time job; there is little time left to be imaginitive with my food!!!  I see the link to Tesco Diets but I've joined there before and always found the allowance too little (1200 calories, even if you join the fitness element of the plan).  For me there really should be a way to combine the diet and the fitness element more thoroughly with Tesco diets, which would give all of us with dietary issues more flexible meal plans . . . it would also allow us busy mothers to take advantage of the 'diet to your door', where you can get all the ingredients for the next week delivered to you door - it is a real blessing!  I shall also be passing my comments on to Tesco.

I've only just started running really and am using the ease into 10k app so currently on 4 mins jogging, 1 min walking which I do every other day, is this enough to be eating 1800 or should i reduce the calories further for weightloss as I'm not running continuously yet?

I've just done a full week of this plan - substituting where necessary - and I have lost almost 4 pounds. At first I didn't think I would lose anything the portion sizes are enormous but I have never been hungry. Looking forward to seeing the results next week - I'll change some of the herbs and spices and substitute some of the main meals with other recipes that are on the site, I've already tried the teriyaki salmon and it was delicious, just so it doesn't get boring :)
