what are you captfit a vegan or vegetarian? are the traditional foods/ways of cooking where you come from pretty healthy?



I am a Lacto-vegetarian . I do use Milk and milk products in my diet but nothing else .

Well here in India cooking is okay , the food is highly oil based although we do include lot of lentils and vegetables but its mainly cooked in Oil .
Steamed and Sauted doesn't work that much . More so average Indian Diet is a High Carb Low Protein diet with the use of loads of White Flour , Potatoes and White Rice .

WEEK 13 WORKOUT #29 B

SQUATS

10xBar ATG
8x37kgs
5x47kgs
3x62kgs
3x72kgs

3x5x77 kgs

OHP

10xBar

DEADLIFT

5x34 kgs

I almost fell like i kinda passed out on that last set . It was very taxing on the body and i may just repeat the same weight once more to make sure i am not pushing my luck too much and working out in a controlled manner .

For diet i have been planning to increase my protein intake upto 150-160 gms / day .
also i plan on doing some HIIT ( Short Sprints with jog in between ) twice a week to burn some fat off as i better stay in shape rather than get too bulky .
I will upload my diet tonight .

Look forward to reading through your diet, have you started the protein + creatine yet?

Good solid workout there, looks like you really pushed yourself mate. Good work!

Protein looks good, but your total is around 2400 calories, which doesn't seem like enough. What's your height and bodyweight? Have you been slowly gaining weight while you've been lifting?

I am 179cms and 82kgs at present . I have gained around 2-3 kgs in last 3 months i recon . I have a very slow metabolism so i end up feeling full longer on whatever i eat that is why i am not able to add more food , although i'd love to .

Well, if you are gaining weight and your lifts are still going up then at the moment you shouldn't need to raise your calorie intake, unless you start feeling hungry all the time. There will come a point where your metabolism will start to increase a little and you will find yourself hungry more often, or you will start to stall on your lifts because your body needs more fuel.

You're doing really well mate, especially gaining 2-3kg in the last 3 months. That's impressive!

What you getting up to this weekend, anything exciting?
