Yeah I meant 245 to 230.
Also the whole eat less more frequently routine works real well too, it really jacks the metabolism.

Vegetarians generally make the choice for health reasons, or because they have a (somewhat overly irrational) soft-spot for animals. No issues with that.
But Vegans for all intents and purposes, might as well be following a food-based cult.

Plenty of different reasons to go vegetarian(ish). Yours truly + girlfriend are what you might call "vegetarian light" - we're on a largely vegetarian diet but eat fish 1-2 times a week. "Vegetarian light" a.k.a. "Sellout".
Aaaanyho - sadly what I've got to tell is diametrically opposed to the OP's original question, how to gain weight on a vegetarian diet, but being 30+ (36 last week to be exact) I felt that my experience in LOSING weight might be of value: yup, your metabolism shifts gear in mysterious ways as you approach and pass the "30eth round around Sol"-mark.
December 2007 I clocked in at 96 kg, 187 cm. Bugger knows what it is in US measurements. During the christmas holidays both me and my girlfriend caught a fairly nasty stomach bug, and come new years eve, we had a freezer full of stuff we weren't too keen on eating. After a bit of discussion we decided to more or less out of the blue do an experiment regarding our diets: Less fat, more vegetables, smaller portions, less bona-fide junk food.
Come March and Easter, I clocked in at 81 kg. My girlfriend had lost 6-7 kg. Main things to lose weight: "Food is not a reward", drink plenty of water, keep a steady schedule of meals.
Of course, come August I've picked up martial arts again after an 8 year break which fecks up my appetite royally...

She has no agenda and could care less what anyone else eats. She's pretty much lived her life floating along. I used to excuse her for all absences and tardies every week in high school. She'd read all the material for all of her classes in a week or two and then show up for tests. Since she was up for valedictorian I let her do whatever. Youngest bb in her system ever, talented, speaks several languages, and did I mention beautiful? You don't want to meet her, anyway.
And I've always heard about the wonderful cuisine in your neck of the woods. What are there, fifty seven ways to make chicken fried steak?
The best part about her and her caring about food was having her and mom cook for three hours straight one night. Amazingly good Chinese feast + multiple pies. I opened the wine.
