Hello everyone! I'm new to this website/forum and to vegan in general. I am a pescatarian and Im interested in switching to vegan to see if it works for me as a bodybuilder. I have found that I make incredible muscle gains on a high fat diet (about 51% fat). Most vegan diets I've seen are high carb with alot of fruits. Can anyone help direct me to good books or websites or any ideas at all that can help with high fat but still vegan? Thank you!

Robert Cheeke's and Brendan Brazier's books are great. I would suggest eating a lot of avocados and nuts like Brazil nuts for some healthy fats. Coconut oil/water/actual coconut and seeds like hemp and sunflower, as well as nut and seed butters like sunflower, almond cashew, peanut.

There is a lot of quackery in regards to vegan nutrition.

I would get a general vegan nutrition book from people with real credentials ( Vegan For Life, by Jack Norris RD ) and then eat healthy whole fat rich vegan foods ( nuts, seeds, nut/seed butters, avocados, coconuts, full fat soy )

Hello and welcome. I am curious, when you say muscle gains, do you mean strength or size or both?
