Re: Vegan Aspirant for Amazonian strength and physique

Slight update: Haven't worked out for about 4 weeks due to domestic circumstances. Weight is consistent at 80-85 kg. It appears I've lost some muscle mass in my upper body area and I'm pretty sure strength too. I'm still vegetarian, almost 4 months into it. Have been bumps on the road and moral setb...

Re: Fallen back...

Maybe you think too much? When I follow your postings especially in the "Personal Relations"-section I get the impression, your heart is not in veganism I don't know why you would say that or why you would refer to posts made in a private section for members only- in a public thread. The ...

Re: Fallen back...

I don't understand how you can criticize the vegan diet, saying you can't find the nutrition and feeling of satisfaction that you want - then when you drop veganism, you eat pizza, chocolate and cake Well obviously those are not the only things I eat but I like to have the freedom to eat tasty unhe...

Re: Fallen back...

That's rather judgemental and unfair. I haven't been dishonest, in fact I've openly admitted my cravings and difficulties on this diet. I've also been honest about my current life circumstances and yes external factors do affect my will power. This hasn't been an easy adjustment by any means, but ha...

Re: Fallen back...

I don't know I guess it's just the combination of a hectic home situation, nomadic life-style exam prep and coming to find out who your friends are in tough situations, that have made me seek comfort in ease and food/sweets I've always loved. Chocolate, cake, pizza and all that, don't talk back.. do...

Re: Power, pump or aesthetics? Can't I have all 3?

@ Vegan Essentials... I think we're very much on the same page... After a couple of years of working out and give or take 6 months in bodybuilding, I've realised I'm too greedy to just want aesthetics... I want strength as well which is why I might very likely sign up in a power lifting gym. I've al...

Re: Most protein rich (non-legume) vegetables *helpful list*

Muchidna, the categories you've put forth sound very well. I'd add nuts to that as well as vegetable oils/fats. If you could plot in date for each of those categories, that'd be awesome. right now I'm swamped in practical things that need to be done at home and am training for an exam as well.

Fallen back...

Veganism isn't easy... In fact it's quite difficult.... I can't be with friends for longer periods of time because I eventually get hungry and need something to eat and can't just live off of cucumbers and apples or other raw veggies/fruits.... I can't live off of nuts and bread either and up a fats...

Re: Do you ever crave it?

Muchidna- I definitely think that having a few years (in your case maybe a decade +) in the luggage as a veggie helps keep the urges in check, so I'm hoping with time that these cravings will become more and more weak. For the time being though it is difficult for me. I'm having all these dreams whe...

Re: Most protein rich (non-legume) vegetables *helpful list*

It just occurred to me all of this info should be gathered into a mini type of Vegan handbook. If we could just get a spreadsheet for grains, nuts and veggie fats as well, then it could all be compiled into a very useful guide :-)

Re: Most protein rich (non-legume) vegetables *helpful list*

thanks, will use, btw how did you class things as "protein rich"? That's a very valid question I unfortunately forgot to address in my original post. I have classified the protein richness of a given vegetable, by looking at the amount (grams) of protein per 100 grams in relation to a giv...

Re: Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness Strength Table 2013

Updated to here. Nice work BNB! I cry whenever I curl a 10kg dumbbell. Tears of shame, that is... I doubt that Asp :-p You look like a 20 kilo'er easy 8-) Never to mock anyone for whom that is a truly challenging weight, really. I've seen it in commercial gyms though, and I always think to myself &...
