Here is an example menu & eating schedule for the general bodybuilder.

7AM
2 cups oatmeal
protein Smoothie (soymilk, protein powder, strawberries, banana, ice cubes)
multivitamin supplement

10AM
4 pieces of toast with peanut butter/soynut butter/almond butter
8oz glass soymilk
breakfast burrito (tortilla, rice, beans, tofu, broccoli, corn)

1PM
large strips of baked tofu with peanut sauce
1 cup broccoli
salad (lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes)
8oz glass soymilk

4PM
bowl of mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, peanuts, walnuts)
tofu sandwich with vegan mayo and spinach
8oz glas orange juice

7PM
bowl of brown rice
teriyaki tofu
green beans and peas
grated soy cheese
8oz glass soy milk

10PM
bowl of mixed fruit
soy protein drink
soy crisps


Looking at the example from Robert's post;
At the 7am meal, if I remove the protein powder and the multivitamin supplement does it affect a lot? Is really so important a vitamin supplement?
At the 10pm meal, a "soy protein drink" is not just soy milk? how to make that?

I live in China and I don't have access to a lot of stuff like "VEGA" or other proteins and vitamins, etc.

Any advice?
Thanks!

THIS is what everyone should do before they start any new "diet" or "meal plan". So many people tell me "I eat sooo much food you just don't get it! I can't gain weight!" and then I ask them ok, how many calories you eat a day? NO ANSWER! Once they actually do an HONEST food log for the span of atleast a few days they realize they have absolutely not been eating enough. Some people gain well on only a few hundred calories over maintenence and others, like myself, need almost 1000 cals over maintenance to see a progression.


Any suggestions for doing this meal plan properly? How to calculate the calories of what I'm eating and know how much do I have to add?

By looking at a handful of calorie calculators and experimenting over the last month I realized they are all off for me by about 250kcal. The average I get to maintain 140 is 2,750 kcal, I actually need 3,000. To reach my goal of 175lbs they say I need 3,250, I actually need 3,500. I eat this daily, but I suspect I'll actually need more than 3,500.

I don't get fat easily, especially eating vegan and clean, so I've slammed my kcal consumption into high gear as of today. What's weirder still is the more I eat the leaner I get the more kcal I need. It's bizarre.

Breakfast: 570
4 Slices of toast, 32g peanut butter, 1 cup of coffee with 1/2c soymilk and 3g creatine.

Post-Workout: 605
2 bananas, 30g Soy protein, 3g creatine, 32g peanut butter, 15g hemp seeds

Lunch: 730
200g of oats, 1/2 Cup of Raisins, 1 cup of coffee and 1/2c soymilk (I usually add a bit of maple syrup too)

Dinner: 935
280g pasta or 330g rice, 1 cup of beans or legumes, or tofu, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 cup of veggies, 1 cup of soymilk

Bedtime snack: 605
2 bananas, 30g Soy protein, 3g creatine, 32g peanut butter, 15g hemp seeds

That's 3,500 kcal pretty much, and about 175g protein, the rest are delicious carbs and fats. Watch me outgrow this too ;_;

I'm just wondering. When I track my calories on MyDailyPlate, sponsored by LiveStrong, I put two cups of penne pasta. The estimated calories for that amount are 1600 calories. Since I can't really estimate how many servings from the box I'm eating since I used the entire box to make food ahead of time, I have to measure the pasta in a cup. I'll likely buy a scale to measure it in ounces instead. In the meantime, though, does anyone know whether or not this is true?

I have done vegan diets, I kinda float in/out of eating eggs & I dont usually buy cows milk. In all honesty it's just so hard to get any decent vegan food where I live. I don't want to live on beans ect for a protein hit.

I also found my strength to fade very quickly & this was along with following proper bulking vegan diets. I just don't think it suits me as a full time diet. Even upping the calories & portion sizes I was loosing power & weight. For the most part out of a week I would say 65% of my diet is already vegan, I just have quorn/meat free products once or twice a day.

Also what tiny vegan food I can buy is so expensive. Though I earn good money my better half is studying full time so I'am on a budget.

veggiesasquatch - When you upped calories and portion sizes did you track your macronutrient intake?

To answer your question about cheap vegan food, are you talking about replacer products or specific kinds of foods? Because fake meats and things like that will always cost more than whole foods. As someone else who is always strapped for cash, I tend to stock up on the following: beans (black, kidney, chick, lima, pinto), peas, lentils, peanut butter, almond butter, nuts, seeds, broccoli, spinach, whole grain breads/pastas, oatmeal, and potatoes.
