1.) Yes.

2.) I eat plant based foods. Mostly tofu, oats, almond milk, quinoa, baby spinach, brown rice, potatoes, fruits, kombucha, Vega, Sunwarrior.

3.) I train to stay fit right now. Can you be a little more specific?


Do you take any supplements? Did you gain muscles on non-vegan diet and then became vegan, or were you vegan and gained all your muscles on pure vegan diet?

The only supplements I take are protein powders(vega and sunwarrior mostly), vega sport, and glucosamine and zinc when my joints are sore.

I actually lost all my muscle becoming vegan over 3 years ago and had to rebuild it back up. So I guess in a sense I built it all on a vegan diet. I believe I weighed 208-213 when I started being vegan and now I'm in the low 180s.

Thank you for the answer. I don't take anything at all, but I will maybe start to use soy protein. Do you think you could have built your muscles without protein supplements, too?

I'm a person who doesn't like to eat all the time so for me not like they are now. You can look back at pictures of me[on here] when I didn't use any supplements and I wasn't as big nor as defined. It's possible to build without them but in my opinion they don't hurt anything!

Also, try to get a protein blend(hemp,pea,soy,brown rice). I prefer brown rice and hemp over the others.
