Ok, so I've been vegan for 6+ years and a raw foodie for almost 2. I eat about a 95% raw diet and feel terrific!!
I starting my weight lifting program about a month ago (with the goal of eventually competing -figure).
I understand that protein intake is imperative in order to build muscle. Right after my workout I have a protein shake (vega with raw almond mylk). Or a "high-protein" green smoothie - leafy green of some sort, Spriulina and/or hemp seeds, banana (maybe) and almond mylk.
I'll try to include seitan or tempeh in my diet however, I really don't want to. I've been SOOO much healthier on the raw food diet; having eliminated my fybromylagia, allergies, acid reflux and few other ailments. I'm really afraid of eating too much cooked food.
I also have no idea how to count calories on a raw food diet. As that's the beauty of it. There's really no need.
Any other Raw vegan Body builders out there? Please help...
I know there's a way to build muscle on a raw food diet - right? Where there's a will...
