In love with my beans (critics for my veg meal plan welcome)

#1 Postby Petitpois » Fri Sep 23, 2011 9:02 am

Hi everyone,

I am starting to work on planning my diet, please let me know what you think of it. :)

From the calorie calculator (here), my "needs" for a hole day would be:
Protein: 126g
Carb : 384g
Fat : 54g
Calories : 2560 calories

I am eating 6 meals a day:
1 150g oat + 10g soy isolat prot
2 200g beans + 12g flax
3 300g quinoa + 10g soy isolat prot
4 200g lentil + 12g flax
5 150g oat + 10g soy isolat prot
6 200g tofu
... those "grams" are when cooked.

It gives me in total:
Protein: 121g
Carb : 375g
Fat : 61g
Calories : 2500 calories

... to each meal I add one serving of fresh fruit or/and vegetable (or more), but I don't list them here (banana, apple, lemon, carrot, spinach, celery, pepper, onion, garlic & broccoli are the one most often consumed)... so I know that my carbs, protein and general calories would be somewhat higher. Once a week I let myself go to a more delicate meal (raw pizza, nut burger, etc).

I would love VEGA shakes but I can't afford it right now and I am not sure if I can find it in my country/europe.

What do you think? Is there such a thing as too much beans? Can that be bad?

Vit D 2400UI /day
Calcium 2 x 500 / day
B2, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Iodine, Selenium (veg1 mutivitamin)
DHA (400mg) & EPA (10mg) (vpure)

Some infos about me:
179cm - 70.5inches
64kg - 140.8pounds
25 year old

My first goals: - to be able to do 3 sets of 8 overhand pull-ups. Right now I am at zero.
- And to build up muscle around my lower back and abdomen, I have a fragile back. :)

I follow this plan here since a couple of weeks only (did cardio since 5 months 2 a week), but I have a gynecomastia (even though I am slim) and might go under the scalp. After such an operation the body can't take sport for a couple of months so I am not sure about my training yet... for the moment I bike a lot.
Years ago I lifted some weight, I absolutely love it, the feeling, intensity, muscle growing, blood pumping, sweat... unfortunately like many, I just did it on my own and got injured a few times, then dropped it and "forgot" about it, until now.

I'm HIV+, have a weak right arm & hand (had a paralysis few years back) but I can still manage most of the movement, I injured myself quite a few times already by trying too hard, I give myself a year to reach my first goal and get in better shape, then I will have a better eye on my next objective.

Thank you for reading my topic, sorry for my little english (I'm from Belgium). :D
