Nutrition plan Please help

#1 Postby Stu » Thu Jul 05, 2012 12:12 pm

Hi everyone, I'm new to the board. I've been vegan for the past couple of years, Ive recently got into body building I have such a passion for working out now I really enjoy it and want to carry on. The only problem I'm having is with my diet, I really mean it's been a huge problem for me and I'm getting stressed about it alot b/c I just can't find a plan. I type into google searching many websites and it's just so much info trying to take in and I can't find anywhere what I'm looking for. I'll find different meals to make and prepare but it's costing me such a fortune to do that I don't earn enough money right now. I end up spending all my money on 3 days of eating and then I'm eating 2 meals aday because I ran out of money.
I would be so grateful if somebody could reply with a meal plan and shopping list or if someone could show me a link. I'm willing to pay a little money for just a shopping list of what to get and what meals I should make.
I hope to hear from someone I would be so grateful.

Stu

you can look at my journal and see what i eat and modify if to your gender, height, weight, goals. but i eat a lot of the staple body builder vegan foods, all approved by my coach who is a pro and got me to my first competition..you are probably gonna want to eat a lot higher carbs than me if youre just getting started i assume you want to gain mass....i would say eat clean, frequently, and a variety of things...i prep my food for the next 5-7 days but then when im not dieting and counting every single macro i try to switch out veggies and legumes for different kinds as best i can, but not too easy when im trying not to go crazy on carbs cause im on a modified diet for another competition. none of the foods i eat are that expensive...for you i would recommend dried beans. not sure where u live but i can get a bag for between 1 and 2 dollars and one bag of chick peas makes about 7-8 cups cooked...lentils, rice, bananas, broccoli, tofu, nuts...peanut butter. its really amazing how healthy you can eat on a budget and how much bang you can get for your buck - but cutting gets expensive cause you need to really hunt down low carb stuff like protein powder and various supplements but for a beginner its not as complicated and expensive as one might think. message me if you want more input.

Click on the 'Profile' button at the bottom of a persons' post :wink:

Welcome to the forum, was reading about your running routine before. Sounds pretty interesting, good idea with the gloves MF.
