Can one lose weigh as a non veggie?

Hi, this is a question for the missus who unfortunately doesnt eat veg atall only peas in the tin?
she want to lose weight like myself but can she do it without the veg? finding it hard to think up recipes for her, she very awkward like will only eat english traditional type foods and wont venture away to lovely meals like chinese or indian cuisine?
She does like fruit mind, well bananas and clementines.

So can one lose without the VEG? cheers

You can, but it may take a lot longer. The veg and fruit help to speed up the weight losses, so if she doesn't eat anything except peas, bananas and clementines, it will probably just take longer.
We had a discussion about this sort of thing in my group last week. Does she eat things like bolognese? What about blending the veg up so she doesn't see it? There's women in my group who do that for their husbands because the claim they don't like certain veg lol (they don't realise they've been eating whatever it is for years already lol)

hi sarah, she will eat bolognese with dolmio light sauce but then she'll sit there picking out the onion etc which makes me chuckle lol, as for mushing the veg she wouldnt have that, shes a sniffer has to sniff everything which isnt the same as taste but might aswel talk to the wall.
But saying that she likes chicken tikka if theres no sauce on it, and jalfrezi without the sauce.

Has she looked at low carb? it's ideal if you don't eat veg as it's meat based.
