Greetings from Canada eh!

#1 Postby VBBIsForMe » Sun Jul 08, 2012 12:39 pm

Hi everyone, I'm so glad I found this site! It has given me much hope and knowledge. I've been vegan now for almost 6 months so I'm a newbie but ever since I found out the truth about the meat and dairy industries I'll NEVER go back. It's been a stuggle I won't lie but a worth while one, as I use to be a butcher beforehand :oops: I'm looking to bulk up as I am 5' 10'' and 130lbs (on a good day) lol. I've been training hard and am getting stronger, more defined but not gaining any weight! I'm not sure if it's just a transition period where I'm lossing fat at the same time that im gaining a little muscle. Any suggestions? Also I just started a creatine cycle and it has helped me in the past. Thanks!

Have you increased the amount of calories you eat daily since working out? How many calories per day are you getting?

Hello fellow Canadian. :)

The only way to gain is to eat more. And if you don't want that gain to be all fat, then you'll need to lift weights.
Go for heavier weights - ie. If you can lift more than 10x, in a set then probably your weights are too light. I like to keep my sets between 6-9 reps and then will switch that up here and there (less or more) just so my body doesn't get too accustomed. Course I'm not a hard core body builder or anything either.. just like to stay strong.
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

Thanks all! Yeah I probaby need to buckle down and get more calories. I get around 2000 a day, but I work 11 hours a day so find it hard to get more.
