How many calories does this vegan Meal Plan have?

#1 Postby garth » Tue Aug 12, 2014 6:14 pm

Hi :D I stumbled across this forum when I was looking to "clean bulk" and read this

http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/handout_sample.pdf

and was wondering how many calories they contained in general like the individual foods and meal plans as a whole?

Thanks!

Good question. I haven't added them up, so I'm not sure.

In general, a breakdown of caloric intake from certain foods looks like this:

“Healthy Foods”

Salad = 100 calories per pound
Vegetables = 200 calories per pound
Fruits = 300 calories per pound
Starches (potatoes, rice, beans) = 500 calories per pound
Nuts and seeds = 2,000-2,500 calories per pound

“Popular Foods”

Cheese = 1,700 calories per pound
Chocolate = 1,800 calories per pound
Potato chips/fries = 2,500 calories per pound
Ice Cream = 3,000 calories per pound
Oil (pure fat) = 4,000 calories per pound

Therefore, looking at the specific foods like fruit or lentil soup can give us some sort of ballpark figure based on the quantity we consume with our best guess as to how that volume relates to pounds.

Hope that helps a little.
