Another Newbie!

#1 Postby demonseed » Fri Aug 15, 2014 9:06 pm

Hey Guys
Jim here from ON, Canada. The wife opened my eyes to what crap is in our meat etc.. and I agreed to try vegan. I love many of the foods, but I am not exactly sure how to balance a diet. The way now is simple, portion protein, carbs and veggies.. throw in some nuts and fruits... I have been steady with my weight.. 180-190.. usually lean for well over 15 years. I want to try vegan but I am nervous that I will over or under eat, deprive myself of vitamins and just F*ck it up..... I am hoping you guys can steer me in the right direction on how to sort out a diet?

Glad to be here.. look forward to learning and chatting!

Thanks
Jim

Hi Jim and welcome, I'm sure if youve been taking a look around this site you are already getting a wealth of knowledge. I recommend Brendan Brazier's books and Robert Cheeke's book as well.

Nice there are veg egg subsitutes that are worth trying, there is a brand called veggs that is good.
