My favourite article is Building Muscle on a vegan Diet, it just sums up everything i want to tell the people who give me a sympathetic look when they find out i am a Vegan and workout.

Hi Robert,

Peronally, I always make a beeline to posts about vegan protein and use of protein shakes. There is a lot of misinformation out there about vegan sources of protein -- I mean, how many times can I hear "Where do you get your protein?" and not go postal on people?? But adding the weight training mix into an already confusing subjects is very helpful to have so many experts discuss. THANKS!

Dave

Vegan BodyBuilding is NOT an oxymoron (2007) -- MY FAVORITE

I used this is ammunition to explain to my bodybuilding boyfriend that you can in fact build muscles and exercise regularly without consuming animal foods!

Thank you!

My favorite article was "What to eat before and after exercise" because I am new to the vegan lifestyle but not weight lifting. It's taking a conscious effort for me to not immediately think PROTEIN - MEAT- EGGS- for gaining mass. This article AND website is holding my hand while I make the complete transition to true veganism! Thank you so much for making it easier for me!!

I love the "What do Vegans Eat?" article. Many people focus on the "can't haves" in a plant-based diet while forgetting the amazing list of things you can eat

My favorite article at this point will have to be the total body mass routine by Derek Tresize. I say that because I plan on starting this routine at the beginning of next minto because I have hit a plateau with my current routine and I trust that this will help me gain some mass because he has already done it.

My favorite is "What to eat before and after exercise" by Robert Cheeke. This has definitely helped alot in fine tuning my meals to get the right energy level before my workout and reduced recovery time afterwards. The foods along with some of the supplements mentioned his book do a great job making it easy to get back to the gym the next day!

My favorite article is Why Vegan by Derek Tresize.
The information has given me straightforward responses to people who ask me this question...plus it reconfirms many of my beliefs about a plant based diet.

This one: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page= ... dingmuscle

It was able to help me break through those misconceptions that gaining muscle was only done while eating meat.

Thanks!

My favorite article is easily 'what to eat before and after workouts.' I think this is one of the most informative articles on the site. It's so important to remember to balance nutrition with exercise. I think this article tells you exactly what you need to know in order to maximize results from your workouts, no matter what your goal. To make it even better, under the 'food' section there are diet plans that get very specific to achieve whatever your fitness goals are. Love this site. I also highly recommend THRIVE by Brendan Brazier, it also contains a ton of information on nutrition and fitness as well as useful recipes.

I enjoyed "Plant Based Nutrition-will I get anemic?" ...... Great reminder of how/where to the iron from food!
