Thanks everyone. I would like to put some muscle on, but since it's summertime, I'd like to just focus on leaning out a bit. Get rid of the fat and "see" whatever muscle is left over. Since going vegan, my bodyfat is the highest it's ever been. At 116pounds, I am 20% bf. I am still adjusting to the diet over the first year so I realize I'll get it. When you say get more protein, my issue is that I seem to always get more carbs in the process. That is not ideal for leaning out. Any suggestions? I'm trying to follow what the RD had suggest to start out in the first year which is:
90g - protein
190 g- carb
50g - fat
P/C/F is 20/50/30
I thought the carbs were kinda high and protein was low, but she said people are too hung up on protein and it matters less with a vegan diet. (I have 2 admit, I always got the best results with high protein) Sounds like you all agree too! Ok, I'll wait 2 hear what you suggest. And thank you so much 4 responding. I came here so I wouldn't be so alone in this process.
