My name is Daniel. Vegan for about 7 months now.
Mainly training for MMA but with some vanity measures thrown in.
Into Hardcore Punk and metal. Used to play bass in a band but now am bandless.

Currently I am doing a 3 days a week routine. Need advice on diet though.

Day 1: Lower Body S&C
Day 2: Rest
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Upper Body S&C
Day 5: Rest
Day 6: "Vanity" Day
Day 7: Rest

Strength and Conditioning days are planned out by Brendan Chaplin, coach to a few Rugby clubs. These are purely for my MMA
Vanity days are there for what ever I feel is lacking aesthetic wise. Chest at the minute. Need to look good when I'm playing on stage.

In the last 11 months I've dropped from a fat 200lbs to 172lbs. Still got a slight gut and a small chest though. Never lifted weights before so don't expect massive numbers.

My main problem is with nutrition. I've been eating well enough to lose weight but now need to pack it on for muscle growth.

would advise on not taking creatine 3 times in a day past the loading phase

Yes I think it's 5 days loading then 11 weeks or something at two servings. Then a break & you load again.

But when you workout out have it hr before & right after. When it's an off day have it with breakfast & mid evening. After your loading phase This is

Make sure that you arent in a deficit/ low carbs if you are taking creatine, as creatine relies on you to take in a feasible amount of carbs in order to work and function properly. If you are cutting your carbs while taking creatine, then any creatine taken will be wasted, essentially.

My problem after years of over eating is now I'm under eating.
I'm making the most of the portion sizes though

Looking forward to keeping track of your progress man. Good to see the vegan straight edge is alive and well across the pond as well.
