Newbie needing some directions

#1 Postby KBLondon » Fri Nov 15, 2013 2:28 am

Hello,

I'm a 46 year old male, I've been into weight training for over 20 yeaars, and have frequently come close to achieving my physique goals of gaining size and getting lean.

For ethical and health reasons, I have decided to go vegan in two stages, lacto ovo vegetarian in the short term then full vegan.

I am super carb sensitive, at least when consuming with a non vegan diet. This means I've kept to a low carb diet 6 days a week with one day to refuel on carbs. I've followed this for a long time.

Please can anyone point me to the right resources on here where I can find out how to keep my vegan diet low carb and still get what I need? I'm totally converted mentally and just want to approach this new start in the most optimal way.

Many thanks,

Khaled

Welcome to the forum. Maybe look into a vegan form of a Keto diet. Also try searching here with the search function for key words like low carb and see what others here are talking about.

Also, you'll get more responses if you post more direct questions on other people's threads. Try in the training journals with people that seem to know what they are talking about.
