Re: Elena29 - The veg diaries

Thanks a lot for your time and all the info! So, what you say is that the best way is to gradually use heavier weights, train with progressive intensity. I assume that this also means evolving strength wise... So far by following the diet plan I posted in my previous posts for 2 weeks now, in combin...

Re: Macros for cutting

Hello and welcome! I'm new here as well, since I very recently decided to do the switch dietwise. From what I can see without knowing anything else about you, 1500 calories as a starting point are quite low. Why don't you tell us more about you? Age, height, weight...

Re: Elena29 - The veg diaries

Hi Elena, Am not big on given nutritional advise, its my belief that diets are cultural, moreover many (and I have done too) overthink nutrition. That being said, your diet looks ok to me, if you ever felt you require more protein you could perhaps experiment with hemp, rice and pea protein powders...

Re: Elena29 - The veg diaries

I might have posted in the wrong section, maybe I should have opened my thread to the nutrition board, I didn't notice. Anyway, it's a nice chance to share any progress I will make in the near future.

Any guidance would be appreciated!

Re: Elena29 - The veg diaries

So, as I promised, I will write down my current training program. The truth is that I have been off gym for about a month. I work Monday-Friday 8-16:00 and plus I have studying and other priorities in this period of time, which (for me at least) made it hard to combine everything. At the same time I...

Elena29 - The veg diaries

Hello everyone! I'm Elena, I'm from Greece and I'm heading to 26 years old. I have been lifting for about 4 years now with ups and downs, following a "traditional" animal protein diet with meals such as eggs and oats for breakfast and stuff like chicken and rice etc. I once cut off meat fr...

Re: Newbie here!

You don't need to eat animal protein...but you do need to add a complete protein supplement or you will probably struggle to gain any muscle. (this is an enthusiast site for vegans wanting to gain muscle...and protein requirements are higher in that context) I would agree, at least as a starting po...

Re: Hi I'm new to this forum looking for information

Hi, I'm new here as well. I read your post and I just wanted to ask you why do you train so much? I mean 4 hours per gym session are too many. As far as I know, 60-90 minutes maximum for the weight/strength training are optimal and then you usually do your cardio. How many times do you train per wee...

Re: Newbie here!

I will do it soon because it's been a couple of weeks now that I don't go to the gym, I only do some cardio here and there since I have exams for my degree coming up in February and because I'm working on weekdays, I don't have that much time to combine everything. Thank you though!

Newbie here!

Hello everyone! My name is Elena, I'm 25 years old, I'm from Greece and I found the forum while googling about vegan bodybuilding. I've been lifting for about 3 years now and it took me a long time to figure out how everything works, from training to nutrition and all that stuff that can be quite me...
