For the past 6 months I've been barging on motorcycle 20,000 km across asia on vegan diet, so now I'm skinny again!! It's not easy finding vegan food out there on the road! ^_^ Before I left I weighed about 185 lb, now I weigh like 160 lb.
If I go back to America I want to get serious with bodybuilding and my goal is to gain 20 lb of muscle in 6 months. (I don't know if its possible?) Problem is, I don't have a lot of money left, but I don't want to let that stop me from doing this.
Last time I did I saw huge results in less than 1 year. My caloric intake was huge, so I was spending a lot of money on food and I was wondering if theres any cheap ways to reach the caloric intake and high protein requirements, while also being vegan.
I was considering buying TVP in bulk, raw black beans in bulk (then making 100 burrtos), buying 20 blocks of tofu, a 10 lb bag of lentils, and soy milk. Big bags of frozen berries and fruit from Sam's club for post-workout shakes. Any suggestions!?!?
Last time I bought a mix of hemp/soy/pea/ protein powder from http://www.truenutrition.com/c-71-vegan-products.aspx
is there any cheaper/better options?
I also bought a big thing of creatine like this:
I'd really appreciate your advice on this,
