Low-fat Low-cost weightloss diet for vegetarian

I have been a veggie for years (no chicken, fish or meat - do eat all dairy and eggs). I am a few kilos above my ideal and lead quite an active life. Most low fat ideas offered involve meat/fish/poultry dishes. Could you pls advise as to where I can find info or diet plans for my requirements.

Dear Veggie
You can purchase an excellent book called "Versatile Vegetarian Recipes" by Hilda Lategan (contact Hilda on or phone; (012) 546-6410. The recipes in this book all feature the fat and energy contents so that you can select the low-fat, energy-reduced ones for your diet. Remember that doing regular exercise is also important when it comes to losing weight - join Walk for Life or a good gym.
Good luck
