New vegan, seasoned competitor

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am new to this board and a new vegan. I am competing in a fitness competition in 6 weeks. I am having a tough time keeping up my energy for training on my new diet. I thought it was because my cals were to low but I have not lost any weight so I don't think that is the problem. I could use any suggestions on how many cals/carbs/fats most competitors eat during training.

Hi Paige, welcome to veganism


You supply scarce information.

- What is your workout regimen?

- Lack of energy is somewhat normal 6 weeks pre-comp. I'd still say you lack carbs.

- Maybe you have gained muscle? Did you shed fat?

- What does your diet look like?


Good luck with your prep and comp,
