I have just joined the forum , having just looked for information regarding Vegans taking Protein powder. The first thread i read was the question from Jessica.veggiegirl . So this is a reply to those posts really . Hi Jessica . I have just started into a Vegan diet , and am obviously trying to keep clear of anything Dairy or Meat sourced . Being a beginner at this , and also going to the Gym etc , I need as much info as I can get . I would like to boost my intake of Protein obviously and do not know of which protein powders I should be looking to buy . I am worried that a lot of those advertised would be sourced from Animals? etc . What Protein powders or supplements do you use ? or should I use . I regularly use the Gym , but have felt very tired etc since giving up Meat and Dairy products . I need all the help I can get lol

About being tired:
You have to adjust your diet to see what works best for you.
- Try eating some fats, like avocados, nuts and so on
- Try eating tons of fruits
- Try eating lots of carbs, like rice, pasta...
Different bodies answer differently to every diet. There are lots of journals here where you can take a look at different diets to come up with good ideas =)
