More protein in my diet!!

#1 Postby princess78574 » Thu Jun 16, 2011 12:23 pm

Im going to compete in my first figure contest in Oct and Im not gettign enough protein in a daily basic. I do drink my protein and soem bars for my snacks but that still does not help. im trying to stay away from the veggie burgers like the Boca, n Mornignstar items since they do have alot of sodium. Does anyone know of a meal plan that can help me since where I leave south texas not alot of people are vegetarians so kinda hard to find someone that can make a diet plan for me! They just tell me to eat greens n pastas! Can anyone help :(

I'm pretty new to the vegan way of eating but I too am trying to incorporate more protein in. I just read "Thrive" by Brendan Brazier and he says the best sources are: leafy green vegetables, legumes, pseudograins (amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat) and seeds (especailly hemp). I've added hemp protein in my smoothies. I highly recommend this book. It gave me a better perspective on how my body can recover faster and get the best from the nutrition I'm putting in. I lift weights, road bike and run. My goal is to get to 15% body fat. Now at 20%. So got some fat to get off and LBM to increase.

You probably have a good training plan in place. I was just watching a youtube on a guy who eats a raw vegan diet and he's focusing on his intensity more than heavy weights. I've hurt myself trying to go too heavy so I'll be focusing on the intensity from now on.
