I have worked out for years. I have eaten vegan for about two years. While I have gained strength, I feel like I should look so much better than I do. I do crossfit 3 days a week. I also hit the gym 2 or 3 days a week to hit any areas that I don't feel like crossfit targeted. For example crossfit does t really do much with your chest so I will make sure to get some bench and incline bench. I also run 3 times a week. 2 runs are normally shorter runs of 2-3 miles. They never exceed 25 mts. So I shouldn't be burning away muscle. Once every couple of weeks I will do an endurance run. Yesterday I ran 7 miles. Here is what I have eaten so far today. I think this represents what I eat daily.
6:30 am protein shake with hemp protein, half an avocado, 1/4 cupcanellinni beans 1/2 a banana and soy milk.
8-9:30 slowly snacked on about a cup to 1 1/2 cups of raw nuts-almonds, walnuts, peanuts, pecans and cashews.
11:00 another shake. Left overs from this morning. About 8 oz
12:30 black bean and corn quinoa tacos in romain heart lettuce wrap. A few dried figs. Half a tangerine.
1:30 other half of tangerine and banana,
3:00 protein shake with water.
In addition to this I have had a ton of water, I'll workout at 4:30, have a shake after I workout, a light dinner and maybe a shake before bed. I feel like I eat very clean. I feel great but I just don't feel like I look great. I'm 30 years old. I weigh 155lbs, bench 240 lbs, squat 275, can do 25 unbroken strict pull-ups etc. do I just need to be patient what I'm doing or change something? I want my love handles gone and more definition in my abs and arms. Thanks for all of the feedback.
