almond/rice milk, seitan (I love it!!!), some fake soy meat and reduce soy eating. For me, it's basically for every food: eating it every day will make me hate it :D. Mix up your diet and gl :)

I wanna know the high protein pea recipe too!

I know many on this board avoid supplements, but I am about to get back to the gym after a couple years away, and am going to try this Jarrow Optimal Plant Proteins 21g protein with these ingredients: Pea protein isolate, organic rice protein, pea fiber, organic hemp protein, Golden Chlorella, chia meal powder, xylitol, natural french vanilla, Metabolin (bacterial metabolites), Lo Han Guo (Momodica grosvenori), and stevia.

What is your bodyfat percentage? Unless you are trying to pre-contest (4-5%) body fat, i would not be concerned with eliminating carbs, fats, and eating all those soy products. Your sodium intake has to be off the charts. I eat high carb including many servings of fruit and veggies and am still dropping bodyfat. I dropped from 17.9% to 15% in like two weeks, all while increasing my strength across the board. I get my protein from a variety of sources like raw brown rice/lentil/pea mixtures, seitan (which paired with the lysine from soy sauce when prepared has all essential amino acids for protein synthesis), nuts/seeds (loaded with healthy fats which aid in cutting and fat metabolism and protein), and vegetables such as green beans, broccoli, spinach, snap peas (which all are relatively low carb options along with high fiber and good protein sources). Hell even Derek Treesize cut down to 4% bf eating high carbs and he has shared his nutrition journal on his website on the whole process.

Try Sunwarrior (vanilla or chocolate flavoured)


I second the Sun Warrior. That stuff is good! I make an amazing relatively low carb smoothie with 1/2 a bananna, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 2 scoops of Sun Warrior chocolate (32 grams protein), a serving of almonds, 5 large ice cubes, and a little bit of almond milk. If you make it in a VitaMix with just enough milk for the powder to be all wet down it has the consitency and taste of ice cream! Yum!

I see nothing wrong with doing some organic free range eggs. We have friends who have chickens as pets and they eat the eggs.

I personally avoid soy, I don't want to start developing a vagina

Yea, I would have some sympathy here, but you chose to blame Veganism rather than your ignorance.

Check out any book or website that break down the nutritional value of food, buy Robert Cheeks Vegan bodybuilding book, &/or browse the many form posts about where to get your protein!

This definitely isn't the thread to go into a bunch of detail, but "free range" usually isn't anything special. The conditions are still dismal. And even people who raise their own are contributing to the problem by reinforcing the commoditization of an animal product.

I believe it is Dr. McDougall's packaged Pea Soup.
