Re: Nutrition Question - Can I see what you typically eat?

I eat meat and eggs (as explained in my earlier posts last year) but this is a great base for someone to look at and figure out what they want to do. I eat mainly whole food plant produce and feel that as a 95%+ vegetable eater that i get everything i need. Anyway. Below is what i ate yesterday - ob...

Re: Whole Food....Whole Lotta Lifting

Looks like youre off to a great start. Are your muscles burning yet? Push harder! hahaha Not really burning as hard as they do with atrophy training, but it's mostly the day after. Can't walk up stairs to save my life! I couldn't get up out of my chair the other day without using arms as leverage h...

Re: Whole Food....Whole Lotta Lifting

Week 3 Just finished off Week 3 with Deadlift Day. On my third set of the main exercise (1 or more reps) i managed 20 reps at 70kg (154lb) which i'm quite pleased with. I've gained an incredible amount of flexibility, strength, stamina in every day life and my sleeping pattern is now pretty solid -...

Re: People are VERY offended when you tell them you are Vega

I doubt people get offended. I feel a lot of any 'sub group' (Vegans, Veggies, Feminist, Homosexual, TV-less people, Dyslexic etc) tend to want other people to know about their differences and it's usually the people with the 'difference' that consistently bring these things up. We'll only have a tr...

Re: SOY, Dangerous or not?

To consume Soy is basically to support Monsanto. I try not to uphold any morals with anything because there's always an area of your life where you go against it out of convenience, but i try to make small changes where i can. Not shopping in supermarkets etc is one way i do this. Monsanto ruin live...

Re: Whole Food....Whole Lotta Lifting

Week 2 Bench Day today. Warm up was 1x5 @ 20kg, 1x5 @ 22.5kg and 1x3 @ 27.5kg. I forgot i was only doing 3 reps on the third set so accidentally did 5. Whoops. This was followed by a short rest and the main workout - 1x3 @ 32.5kg, 1x3 @ 37.5kg and 1x3 or more @ 42.5kg, at which i got 10 reps in. Th...

Worked as a builder's labourer until i was 23, when i went to college and then onto uni. Wasn't ...

Re: How to react with a person really against vegans ?

I prefer to not bother labelling anything. Rather than 'i don't eat X' i just say 'i prefer to eat Y' instead.

Healthy breakfast protein shake!

Hey people. Just thought i'd share a nice recipe I came up with. Probably has been done elsewhere but i'm claiming invention of it until I see otherwise! Basically, I hate the taste of protein powder and I wanted to have some with breakfast, so I have to mix it into food. Ingredients: 1 Cup whole al...

Not strictly Vegan, but hi.

In fact, i'm not Vegan at all - i eat dairy and a little bit of meat once or twice a week (small portion.) What i am mainly an advocate of though is eating wholefood and plant-based nutrition. It saddens me to see regular bodybuilding forums where they literally don't care what they put into themsel...
