We spoke with Dr. Mike Moreno last week, the book's author, and he made it clear that you are free to choose any lean protein sources you like.

His feedback for vegetarians:
Dr. Mike says it is, you'll just modify the protein suggestions. Instead of fish or chicken, you'll use soy, dairy or legumes. He cautions that vegetarians are at risk for protein deficiency, so be sure you're not skipping this important nutrient.

And his feedback for replacing seafood and fish:

You can sub with any of your choice of lean proteins, suggests Dr. Mike. Pork, turkey, lean ground beef or filets, and chicken are all acceptable substitutions if you don't like fish or have any other reason to avoid it.
