Re: Transition

Why focus on low-fat foods? Did you feel satiated on the paleo diet? If so, you could try mimicking it with the vegan diet: high fat, high protein vegan foods. If not, well...not feeling satiated is kind of an inevitable part of caloric restriction. Maybe you just need to get used to eating vegan. A...

Re: High protein with low carbs?

There aren't a lot of ways to eat very high protein, very low carb on a vegan diet. Tons of soy products or protein powders are about the only things you can do. I think something that people in general don't understand is that bodybuilding and diets with very unbalanced macros are more or less unna...

Re: brink of quitting- advice wanted

Did you go full vegan right away? If so, try a gradual move to vegan meals with whole, simple ingredients. Give yourself time to adjust. Stop eating weird foods like protein isolate and raw vinegar.

Try decreasing your sodium intake if you've not tried it already.

Re: B12 and supplements, 2 months vegan

B12 is the only supplement (fortification is also a type supplement) vegans in industrialized living conditions need, given a generally balanced diet. I don't know what the above poster means by eating "good food," but I ate good vegan food for years and still ended up with health problems...

Lifting While Raw Vegan & Caloric Needs

Does anyone here lift at all on a raw vegan diet? My main goal is to lower my bodyfat percentage, and my high-carb (cooked) vegan diet does not seem to be working any longer (I lost 18 lbs. last year but haven't been able to lose anymore fat). I lift to stay toned; I'm not really interested in build...

Re: Starving for Protein

Thank you for your response. Since I posted my question, I've eliminated the hunger problem by cutting out squats, which was always the most difficult exercise for me. My thighs were more sore than they should have been, and I think my body desperately trying to repair itself may have caused the hun...

linuxvegan is here!

I've been a vegan for 6 years, and I've been following the Stronglifts5x5 program for a few months now. I lost about 18 lbs. last year, now I'm trying to get lean. I've come for some nutritional and fat-loss advice.

I'm an editor and I live in California.

Starving for Protein

I am a 5-ft. tall, 110-lb. female. I started the Stronglifts5x5 program (3 days per week) about 2.5 months ago, and I cycle on 3 off days and take one day of complete rest from exercise. No known medical problems besides hypoglycemia, which I've controlled for years by eating every 3-4 hours. Within...
