Stop being a vegetarian.
You may need to supplement with a wider range of things to fix the nutritional deficiencies you have caused via vegetarianism, but if you start putting nutrient dense animal products back into your diet, there are only a few supplements necessary. Vitamin D3, magnesium, and selenium top the list. You can find a few threads about that here on paleohacks.
I supplement with krill oil for omega-3s, but I think it is totally possible, and probably better to eat seafood.
I take your statement 'strict diet' to mean you want to maintain a calorie deficiency or something along those lines. Don't. Obviously, you should stay away from grains, legumes, and milk proteins because these things aren't very helpful, but you need to eat until you reverse whatever deficiencies you have. You may find yourself losing weight anyway, but it is simply not a good idea to try and do it on purpose right now. Eat real food when you are hungry and eat enough to keep your body satisfied so that it will stop running in crisis mode, which is what it is doing right now.
