Fitness progress pics from non-vegan to vegan...

#1 Postby Emilyyoung24 » Thu Feb 21, 2013 5:44 pm

Image My non-vegan "before" picture. Eating 6xs a day, high protein, low carbs. Lifted 5xs a week. Not really doing any cardio.

Image After turning vegan a few months after the before pic. Cardio and intervals, lift weights 3-4xs a week. I started juicing my veggies and fruits too. I feel so much better and enjoy food more :)

I'm new to this forum so decided to check it out and upload progress pictures like everyone else. haha I recently committed to being vegan after a lot of relapsing. I was too caught up on getting protein which made it hard for me to commit. I didn't feel that great during my meatless intense weight training days. I built muscle in all the right places and I felt strong and looked good. But I still wasn't happy. After making the change, I am feeling better than ever. I'm not even concerned about looks anymore and I feel like my food variety is much bigger and healthier. Why did it take me this long to commit! :(
Now I can eat at Chaco Canyon everyday :)

But, I still would like to cut up. I have my workouts all figured out. But the food I'm still concerned about. The high protein foods in a vegan diet is also high in carbs. Is there a high protein food that is low in carbs, not too processed and not tofu/soy?!

Your abs are gorgeous. Keep pushin'. Great to hear another "I feel so much better after going vegan" story. Keep spreading the word, its contagious.

Did you want my sample diet and routine? I'll try my best to write one out. My routine just changed starting this week to a fat burning program so I don't know how that will go. But the one I had before was a muscle building program which was like :
Monday: Back/Chest
Tuesday: Shoulders/quads
Wednesday: Hams/Arms
Thursday:Cardio strength
Friday:cardio
Saturday: Full body
Sunday:Rest. And I did 30 min cardio/intervals on a empty stomach about 3-4xs a week. My rep range was 8-12 and 3 sets.

I stopped measuring my food and eating the same thing since I committed to being vegan but the foods I ate were quinoa, Ezekiel bread, avocado, kale, fruits, pea protein, beans, faux meats, yams, vegan protein baked goods, oats, green veggies for example. I eat out a lot so its tough to calculate now. haha Had a protein shake about 2-3xs a day and juiced a lot. Tried to eat about 1470 cals a day. Hope that helps :)

I found some stuff called seitan looks like beef 21g protein and 4 carbs. Pea and Rice protein powder is 23.7g protein and 3.5g carbs. Like you looking for more choices since I'm trying to cut myself.

oldlunk, just don`t eat seitan too often, it is not good for the intestines.
I eat it once a week, sometimes twice.

Funny you should say that about Seitan. It totally made my gut rumble. I use smart ground instead.
