Hi my names Nathan and I'm 26, living in England. Vegetarian since age 15 and vegan since age 24.
Eight months in the gym so far, just want to get huge to prove a vegan diet is healthy and destroy the protein misconceptions.
I'm 6'4" so it's going to be tough filling out even if I ate meat but I'm determined.
Obviously got a lot of work to do but I'm getting stronger.November 2012

Currently bulking up on pea protein shakes with oatmeal, soy milk, peanut butter, bananas, nuts etc. Eating lots of raw vegetables sometimes roasted. Stuffed peppers with brown rice and mushrooms / tomato sauce. Lentil spaghetti and lentil shepherds pie. Got a huge 3KG bag of brown lentils from Tesco. Eating lots of smoothies too and nuts, got a 1KG tub of peanut butter that I dip bananas into. Lots of avocados and fruit. Lots of spinach although a guy on another forum says the iron sucks because of all the oxalates, so I looked it up and apparently I only need to worry about it if I suffer from kidney stones.
Chow for now, see you around the forums.
