Hey guys,

I'm new to this site and have had so much inspiration already, just browsing! :D I'm new to veganism (3 months) after opening up my eyes to the horrors that happen to animals - I'm happy with my choice and really want to make it work. I love the concept here that our fit and strong bodies can be our best form of activism! :boxer:

So here's the deal...I've got the dreaded "skinny fat" man body at the minute. I've enrolled at a 'total body training' gym with an awesome personal trainer here in Bangkok. I used them last time (about a year ago) when I was on the Paleo diet and I got in the shape of my life. The personal trainer is skeptical about my vegan diet and I really want to prove it can be done!

I have 2 months to do this. I train Monday-Friday and the hour is hardcore - it's the kitchen where I need help. I'm overdosing on tofu at the moment, which I doubt is a great idea. What kind of meals can I eat to build muscle, but not add to my belly fat? Cheers! Feel free to add me on my fitness pal app 'manvsclock.' :popcorn:

Hi and welcome to the community. What is it like to eat vegan in Bangkok? Lots of produce available? options at restaurants or do you cook a lot yourself?

hey mate - I think I accidentally PM'd you in the reply. basically I said I think it's cheaper, but probably less healthy to eat out than to eat in. Did you receive that? Sorry about the mix up!

Andi - there is a Chinese/Thai culture here and they cook something called "Jay Food" which is pretty much 100% vegan without onions. If you're anywhere near the centre (anywhere with a BTS underground station) I can show you one place which is my go-to vegan food stall. It's inside a mall and it's great value for money.

We are right in the centre, staying in Sukhumvit. Thanks for the advice, will they understand if I just ask for Jay food? I'd be interested in knowing where that food stall is.
