Re: Vegan Competitor

Wow Arvid, you must be a real warrior! I cannot imagine a low intake of carbohydrates, hee hee. That must take so much dedication. But, I can agree, I have the same experience with cardio... Too much cardio definitely makes your muscles deflated. I am following you on facebook. :) I am curious, you ...

Re: Vegan Competitor

Do you notice a flatter stomach with 1 or 2 fruits a day. Are you allowed to eat nuts on your diet. Too soon to tell so far, but I had a flat stomach to begin with :) I have never leaned out using fruits and vegetables only. I have always had a low fat intake (not abnormally). Even when I am puttin...

Re: Vegan Competitor

I do not find the diet to be harder without fruit. As long as calorie intake is sufficient, I never have any issues with 1-2 servings per day of fruit. :) Meals look like: 1) brown rice, veggies, raw vegan protein 2) raw vegan protein bar, veggies 3) soy milk, banana 4) wrap with rice, veggies, humm...

Re: Vegan Competitor

Very thankful for everyone interested in my progress! It is a huge compliment and motivation. :) Since I am "in season now" (and bulked as much as I could!) I am making some changes to my diet now. I have hired a trainer to aid me in being accountable and to give me a second opinion in my ...

Re: Vegan Competitor

Adding some nut butter, beans, grains, and sunwarrior raw vegan protein into my diet for the next two weeks. As a raw vegan, my recovery time per muscle group is faster than usual (1 day). Testing to see if the same results are achievable with a larger percentage of my calories coming from protein, ...

Re: Vegan Competitor

No problem, I love to help answer questions. :) I find fruit very satisfying. If I am eating completely raw, I am eating around 2500 calories, sometimes more. I expect to be eating far more than that in the last month of my competition. If you are not eating enough, then it is quite possible you are...

Re: Vegan Competitor

I have no problems with dried fruits, but then it comes down to: are there preservatives in them, is there added sugar? If there is, I wouldn't eat them. :) I haven't eaten any in years though, I prefer fresh fruit. I don't really eat nuts, occasionally I will have peanut butter but it isn't an ever...

Re: Vegan Competitor

Steering clear of red peppers......... hahaha. If I can't buy organic, I buy frozen - the next best option. I'm quite happy to be able to buy shredded onions, peppers, etc. for 4 lbs/$5 from Safeway. Unfortunately, no markets out here in DC. But back in Vancouver, it's a lot cheaper to be Vegan. :) ...

I don't really know what else to call the thread. :roll: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mekga8jsAm1rdqkmyo1_r4_500.jpg This is kind of my starting point. I will be experimenting with several competition diets in order to see what really makes me feel best up to my competition date, the first one ...
