Hi All,

I am new to this forum and while I am very new to a vegan lifestyle I hopping someone could help me out or point me to an expert with regards to my nutritional program I designed myself.

I am a natural bodybuilder that has competed while on an animal protein plan and while I did very well I had lots of problems with my digestion most of the time leaving me feeling heavy and out of energy.

Since I switched to a high raw plant based diet I have found my recovery and stamina greatly improved and while I was having one meal a day with animal protein I have decided I want to give the vegan lifestyle a chance because it makes me feel so much better.

I have attached a copy of my diet and I would appreciate any advice on ways I can improve it for optimal fat loss. I can give out further details of my body composition if need be. I am not sure if the amount of fruit I consume is a problem,
I may have to hike my calories up a bit more as I am often having to eat more because my metabolism is fast.

Thanks in advance.

Nicholas

Quite different I think! I wouldn't have a clue with the amounts/weight of food that I eat, I basically just eat regularly and try to make sure I never let myself get hungry. My rules are pretty simple ~ lots of varied & colourful foods, lots of organic fruits & veges, keep the water intake up and relook at things if I feel I am not recovering from my training adequately enough.

My staple foods that I eat on a regular basis would tend to be...


legumes
split and whole lentils
beans (kidney, pinto etc)
oats
muesli
oat/rice/soy/almond milk
spirulina
mixed raw nuts
pea protein (I have used NuZest for the last year)
quinoa
rice
inari
miso
chickpeas
avocados
tofu
tempeh
juicing with fruits & veges (beetroot, carrot, apple, berries, kale and citrus juice is awesome)
TVP (textured vegetable protein)
soy burgers, sausages etc
shitloads of fruit and veges, salads, greens etc.


I've never used an online nutrition/diet programme but I don't think I would have any problems meeting my protein requirements :roll: I'll take some tips from you though Nic as this year I really want to start eating more raw foods; I feel like I need to start putting more emphasis on that now.

Keep up the great work, VBB is really lucky to have you on here MF.

Just FYI, I would skip the Himalayan salt and go with good old iodized. No reason to prefer Himalayan, and iodized salt helps prevent deficiency.
