I discovered the plant based diet in January of this year after getting some unsettling results from a blood test. My wife and I have always eaten well and it appeared to be doing nothing. I decided the meat had to go. After only 3 months of a fully vegan diet my doc was completely astounded at the difference in my numbers.

The dilemma, I've found a way to gain weight and I don't feel as good as I did in the beginning. I so ls love some information on proper nutrition while working out and supplements we should be including in our diet. At this point, I'm willing to admit that I know nothing.

Hey! Welcome to the forum :)

Well, there is always something new to learn and the diet you need always depends on your body, since everyone's different :)

It will take some time to figure it out, but I'd recommend you to start reading other famous bodybuilders articles/books on how to make a good nutritional program, etc. Myself, I try to eat mostly whole foods, especially a lot of fuits and veggies. For protein I eat a lot of lentils, beans, bread, nuts,peanut butter, seeds and some veggies (especially kale and spinach).
I know that in US it's very popular to take some supplements, but I prefer not to. I am trying to be as natural as possible.

Well I wish you to be patient and good luck! :)

Hey welcome. I would post your regular diet in the health and nutrition programs section. A few suggestions off the top of my head would be to add more fruits and veggies and make sure you are eating enough calories.
