Re: Shred It! follower: Need help determining daily calorie total

Hey JD! Welcome to vegan bodybuilding! :P I have not read Robert Cheeke's new book, but I have read his detailed post from 2015: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=37270 You're off to a good start! Knowing your calorie requirements is important... but not as important as...

Re: My Attempt at a Fresh Start

freshstart wrote:I've struggled with binge eating for most of my life. I've been sidelined with an injury for awhile and my weight has been creeping up. I'm 8 lbs away from being obese. That is horrifying. This is my attempt at replacing negative habits with good ones.

You can do it! :P

Good luck!

Re: Vegan in Pain

Hey Sticky, So, you've been in pain since 2002 (except for a brief period when you were eating meat)? That's a long time. :shock: I'm sure it's hard to remember what you were eating way back then... but I agree with jmf -- except for B-12, there are no vitamins, minerals or macro-nutrients that you ...

Re: Vegan in Pain

Hello Sticky, I am not a doctor, so please do not interpret anything I say as medical advice. ;) First of all, I am very sorry to hear about your troubles. I totally understand how being in constant pain and not being able to sleep can destroy your sense of life and sap your will to live. If I were ...

Re: Help with Dietary Choices

I have switched to a (mostly) vegan diet, with the goal of becoming full-on vegan. I still fall-off the wagon occasionally. :( I decided on a full blood test... followed by 16 weeks of exercise (weight lifting mixed with walking, rowing, or hiking for cardio) and a diet based on The China Study ... ...

Help with Dietary Choices

I need help with my dietary choices. Disclosure: I am not vegan. I have explored vegan and vegetarian diets in the past, but never succeeded in making the cut-over. Health concerns are leading me to re-explore those options. My doctor tells me I need to lose 50 pounds (no argument there). To do this...

Thanks everyone, So tightening my abs will help keep my core braced and my back arched (not rounded forward) and this will reduce the risk of back injury? Kathryn --- I tried moving my feet closer together and that feels better. So I think there may have been some lateral stress on my knees even tho...

Proper Squat Form?

I have recently discovered the squat. I love this exercise. But I think I might not be doing it right. I stand with my legs a little wider than shoulder width, toes pointed out at about a 30° angle. The bar rests across my upper back. I keep my back as straight as possible while squatting. I lower u...

Thanks for you support, everybody. I made up my mind. I have been in this line of work for 18 years, and in this industry for the last 8. I tend to doubt myself and my abilities and to think that if I only had a little more knowledge or a little more experience then I would be a worthwhile employee....

Thanks everybody, those are all excellent suggestions. I always forget about nuts. I usually try to avoid them because of the high fat content, but if I am exercising enough, it shouldn't be a problem. And eating nuts is much better than not getting enough food and grabbing some junk on the way home...
