muscle mass as vegan

I'm not much of a fitness buff myself, yet as a vegan I often find myself discussing the topic with skeptics. Specifically, I'm asked whether vegans can maintain muscle mass. I point people to this website, but I really don't know. I recently read an article by the P90x guy, Tony Horton. I was pleas...

Re: Protein powder comparative amino acid analysis

question for everyone: how does a gemma/rice/hemp plain with no other additions mix with a smoothie? I want a little more protein in my diet, so I'm thinking of getting a mix (maybe like 70 gemma/30 rice or 60 gemma, 20 rice and 20 hemp) and adding half of a serving to the green smoothies I make. My...

vital wheat gluten

It is a big source of "protein" but I can't help but believe that it has a poor amino acid profile. Does anyone know what the amino acid breakdown is? Even wheat in general, like in bread, pasta, or cereal, usually has decently high protein totals. I just doubt wheat gluten has any real pr...

Re: What is a complete protein?

There's a certain amount of an amino acid that does need to be met to be considered "complete" or "adequate." The problem is, unless you're eating just ONE type of food and not enough of it, you're not going to be missing out on your protein anytime soon. As for quinoa and soy b...

What is a complete protein?

I've heard that "complete proteins" are a rarity in the plant kingdom. I sometimes use a hemp protein powder that apparently has amounts of at least 19 or 20 of the 21 possible amino acids, including all of the essential ones that the human body can't create. I never hear hemp being a comp...

How to increase size/girth of wrists

Hey fellow vegans. Even before I started a vegan lifestyle, my arms and wrists have been scrawny. My wrists, especially, are pretty thin. Does anyone have any basic tips, nutrition and workout wise, how to increase their girth? Are there specific exercises? On a separate, but maybe related note, I'v...

question about a supplement---piracetam

Hey everyone. Does anyone have any experience taking piracetam? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piracetam A friend of mine recommended it to me to help with studying and concentrating.
