Trents Pre Vegan Pics

#1 Postby trent » Thu Sep 25, 2008 11:19 am

Okay here goes, this is my first day going vegetarian/vegan. I am 40 yrs. old, 6'0", 205lbs., 18-20% body fat(thats a guesstimate!) I have always lifted weights and have kept a relatively clean diet eating 4-6 small meals a day(clean except for the meat of course!). I am now going to up my cardio and of course eat a clean vegetarian/organic diet. Any insight/advice would be highly appreciated! Thats why I'm here. By the way, words cannot describe how inspired I am by the before/after transformations I have browsed here! I must have been checking them out for over two hours!! I posted in the Introduction thread if you would like to know a little bit of what made me see the light. Thanks for everyones time and feedback. I would really like to get as lean as possible so please, any advise would be great. :wink:

Well you should find that without meat cheese and dairy, getting ripped will be a hell of a lot easier

We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment of life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing

You got a good frame and some quality mass it seems. Plenty of people here knows a lot about different diets to loose fat.
Btw, you look a lot younger than 40!

Record a food log in a notebook, calories/day, grams of fat, carbs, protien/day. If you haven't already, post a training and food log on this forum so people are able to make suggestions/changes you may need in regard to nutrition or training.

One of the most common mistakes lifters make is increasing their caloric intake too much because they think they need the extra calories to build muscle mass, however they end up putting on fat. I didn't realize I was doing this until 2 two days ago.

Yeah, I need to start counting everything I put in my mouth. I'm gonna start using Fitday.com to record everything. I was doing it last year for awhile so I have a general understanding of correct portions, but now I am eating alot differently obviously. I will start a food/excercise journal here. I have been eating 5-6 small meals a day every 3.5 hours. I eat protein with every meal and I'm getting in the fruits and vegetables. I'm guessing each meal is appx. 450-550 calories. I am also drinking alot of water. My clothes are fitting looser and I feel strong and energized. Give me a few weeks and I will post some updated pics. Peace.
