    Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins.Nuts, oranges, and apples are very good for physical exercises.

    The simple answer is reduce / eliminate white carbs as much as you can and grains in general, and limit fruit. Replace them with low calorie / carb vegetables. Also increase your consumption of eggs seeing as they are ok for you to eat. Increase your exercise and you should be fine.

    According to a random website that I consulted some years ago, when I became vegetarian, the story about proteins is this:

    1) when one eats, food proteins are rescinded into aminoacids, that are then used to create the new proteins for the body. Thus the important part is not to eat "proteins", but to eat the correct mix of aminoacids.
    2) the human body uses 24 different aminoacids, of which 16 can be produced by the body itself. The other 8, tough, must be assumed from external sources. Meat is good for "proteins" because it contains all the aminoacids more or less in the correct proportions.
    3) vegetables on the other hand contain aminoacids but not generally in the correct proportions. In particolar cereals (bread, pasta, rice etc.) contain 4 of the "missing" aminoacids, whereas legumens (beans, peas, soy etc.) contain the other 4. Therefore one should have a balanced diet of both cereals and legumens.
    5) Diary products and eggs are a good source of proteins (with the correct mix of aminoacids), but have the problem of being extra-fat. In particular, the egg is made by a high protein low fat part (the white) and a high fat part (the red[yellow?]), so probably if you are dieting you should throw away (or give to some family member) the red part of the egg.
