How can i increase my caloric intake and not gain weight?

amanda b Asked: How can i increase my caloric intake and not gain weight?

I am 19 years old 5'4 and currently 115 pounds. It is my goal weight and I have reached this in about 2 months. I was 132 before so i lost 17 pounds. I lowered my caloric intake to about 800-900 calories a day and went forwalks. I know thats not a lot of calories and its not the preferred way to lose weight but its what works for me. I am also a vegetarian, My question now is how can i start the maintaining process without putting the weight back on. I have worked extremely hard to get where i am and i dont want to screw it up.

By exercising more. So find out how many calories you burn and how many you eat a day.

Don't worry too much, it will still take you weeks and weeks before you start gaining a lot of weight back.

I don't know if it contains any animals enzymes.Vegetarians can eat cream and butter, they just don't eat meat and animal fat.It's vegans that do not any product derived from animals.

RoseBud Answered:
A vegetarian could eat that, a vegan could not. Cream and butter are dairy products which vegetarians will eat but vegans will not. The only animal enzyme I can think of is rennet. If it doesn't list rennet or "animal enzymes" then there aren't any in it. Products sold in the US are required by law to list all of their ingredients on the package.

Yes–vegetarians can eat animal products. It's vegans who won't eat things like eggs, butter, and cream.
No, there will not be animal enzymes; unless you are using raw milk to make the cream and butter, and then not cooking it at a high temperature, there will be no functioning enzymes. When you pasteurize a dairy product, it denatures the enzymes, making them useless. So they will be present in the cream and butter, but they won't have any impact on you whatsoever.

Yes you can eat it.Vegetarians eat animal products like cream and butter, they just don't eat animal flesh and meat.If the packaging label does not say it contains any animal enzymes it should be 100% vegetarian.

Yes it does. I'm a vegetarian too!

The noodles are vegetarian but the flavor packet is not.The Ramen Oriental flavor, contains no animal ingredients at all, including in the flavoring packet. So the Oriental flavor is vegetarian, but the other flavors have animals products in the flavor packets.

Yes, of course it has meat products in it.
