Re: New You for the New Year Contest 3

I became vegan in May of 2005 after working at a Fast Food Restaurant for several years, and becoming very disgusted with what I saw. There have been numerous changes in my life after almost 7 years of veganism, and I've had lots more energy than I've had in the past. - I lost weight around my mid s...

Re: How Often? And a couple of questions..

You might want to try splitting up your muscle groups to allow more recovery time. I usually will do something like a "push" workout (Triceps, chest, shoulders, mostly bench work and dips), a "pull" workout (more biceps and back, curls/pullups, bent over rows, etc), and a leg wor...

Re: Why are there no lentil protein powders?

I think I heard about one a few years ago, but I'm not entirely sure. Lentils are always good on their own though too. :)

Re: Nutrition advice

I would suggest adding any kind cardio to your workout routine, and upping your calories a bit if you feel you need to. At my height I was never the biggest guy, but I was always really cut by keeping active, and never had to really monitor my calories at all (which works for me because I have a nea...

Re: protein post workout substitute

You can definitely find some online for a fair price, but I find total calories and protein from foods tend to be a lot cheaper anyway. You could always drink water, then a smoothie (with or without protein) after a workout to get hydrated and your glycogen levels back up, then eat a meal afterwards...

Re: Christopher's Training Log

That looks pretty solid. :) The first time I read through I misread "filler" for "fiber" and thought "What's the matter with fiber?" ;)

Re: I just joined.

Welcome to the forums, Didi! The amount of food you might be eating (in addition to what you're eating) could be part of the bloating problem too.

Re: Pressure Cooking destroys proteins?

I pressure cook all of my beans except for lentils (I find they don't seem to save that much time in the PC, but that's just me). As for them destroying proteins, I don't really know about that. I can't really imagine it altering them anymore than straight boiling would, as it's not that much higher...

Re: Philadelphia people?

I was born there and lived there until 1995 (about 10 years pre-vegan). I know there's a LOT of vegan friendly places around the city (We Philadelphians love our food), but I've been there for maybe a day since going vegan. If I'm ever there though I'll have to look you up. :)

Re: Draining beans

I invested $40 in a pressure cooker about 3 years ago (mostly for beans, but it does other stuff pretty well), and that thing has paid for itself so many times over. I cook a large batch, drain them in a colander, then put them in a tupperware in the freezer. When I want to eat them, simply pop open...
