New to forum, have no idea what I'm doing? :?:
Been vegan for about 1 year. I compete in fitness ( pre-vegan) considering doing a competition again, but this time all plant based. I am more fearful than anything. I do not want to embarrass myself. I do not know what the diet for the show would look like either.

What was your pre vegan contest diet? Maybe we can help swap out the non vegan foods!

Amounts? What calorie and macros are you trying to hit?

I don't think there is much risk of that! Most people are pretty friendly, here AND at competitions. Don't get too much into what others might be thinking! :)

Welcome, Jeanine!

Here are my ratios, depending on my goals at the time and how my body is responding to training/recovery:
About 50-55% carbs, 25-30% protein, 20-30% fat

Thanks everyone. I know my macros for the non vegan diet, I followed my friends plan, who won Fitness Universe, but as far as the diet for vegan, I had no idea what it should be. I try not to eat gluten either, but sometimes, I get too hungry.
I really appreciate everyones' help. Truly...thank you

why does it need to be any different?

What was it, did it work well previously?

Do you guys carb cycle on a plant based diet? I would feel the vegan diet, the macros would change? I followed my friend's diet, and I think the macros were 60protein/20 carbs/20fats? I just followed her diet plan. The diet was written out like meals. It did work, but i think i would have to have less protein and more carbs. Especially cutting out animal protein and replacing it with beans and lentils. Am i totally off or wrong?
