Hello everyone! I am new to bodybuilding but so far I am loving it. Not sure if this is the right place for this post...if not moderators please move it appropriately.

I have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian my entire life (34 years old) and am moving more and more into the vegan lifestyle. I was a high level athlete about 14 years ago and then life happened. I started working out and paying closer attention to my health last August (2013). There is so much information and bro-science that it is difficult to sort what is true and what is not.

Currently I am doing a modified beginner ALL PRO workout (Bodybuilding com forums popular workout + some isolation exercises to fatigue).

What I am wondering is what is an ideal diet for what I am doing. Recently I have dramatically increased by Protein intake with supplimental shakes. I have notices that I am starting to make great gains while also losing weight. I weighed in this morning at 241.5 (5'11") and am mesomorphic with broad shoulders.

So here is a typical day in my diet for the last 4.5 weeks (lost about 10 lbs of fat and estimating about 3 lbs of muscle).


45-50g 220 calorie Protein Shake (I am taking Dymatize ISO 100 Hydrolyzed whey).
1 ALA suppliment
2 CLA suppliment pills
Oxy Elite Pro 2 pills

MWF I workout about 30 minutes after this:
Pre-workout: HEMOVOL and Micro Creatine with 20 0z of water

Post Workout: Micro Creatine and another 45-50g Protein Shake (same brand)

Mid morning to lunch:

1 Banana
1 Granny Smith Apple Small
Handful of Black Berries
Large Handful of Carrots
3 Stalks of celery and 2 tablespoons of all natural peanut butter (no additives, Just peanuts and some salt).
Handful of Blueberries (when I can get them for a good price)
2-3 Small Sweet Peppers

Mid afternoon: 25g Protein Shake

Can of tri-bean organic blend.
1 package of broccoli/mixed vegetables.
Different dried herbs for flavoring.

I am drinking a ton of water over the course of the day. I do not feel hungry at all and I am seeing results. But I am concerned I am not getting enough micro-nutrients.

I do 600-1000 calories of cardio Tues Thurs Sat in the afternoons.

My goal is to build some nice muscle and get below 200 lbs to have a fitness model body style(9-12% bodyfat). (although the 200lbs is not important I am sure that I need to get below 200 to have this).

I would appreciate any diet recommendations and/or suppliment recommendations. Thanks!!!

My recommendation is more whole foods and less supplements. Check out the training journals for other peoples meal plans. And check out Brendan Brazier's and RObert Cheeke's books.
