romac Posted April 7, 2011 Share Posted April 7, 2011 First thread!Hi all i've been away from consistent bbin for about 7 years - back when i was a meater. (been vegan for about 5.5 years now) Of course i've put on some blub and removing it is my first and top priority - i've done this before, but i was a meater back then so it was pretty easy to find foods that were protein dense so i could maintain a very aggressive caloric deficit. I lost 26lbs in two months and got down to about 8% BF. Before and after pics are located here: (not trying to drive traffic there - it's just where my junk is stored) Fatloss thread: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=311486Fatloss post with attached diary: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showpost.php?p=657290963&postcount=117 If you look at the diet part of that log, you'll see i was intaking mostly all protein, with nearly no simple carbs at all. I am a bit dumbfounded as to how to get such a ratio as a vegan. I have quinoa and quinoa flakes, but for 222 calories i get only 8g of protein - soy isolate gives me 23g for 85 calories, but i'd love to do this with real food if possible. Beans to me seem like a simple carb bomb! I'd like to stay under 1500 cals per day, intake as little simple carbs as possible while focusing on meeting protein requirements for working out nearly daily. (please don't lecture me on going so low with calories - i've done it before, and the results were phenomenal (see the pics in the links above). Anyhow - I'm sure there are some vegan bbers who have already researched this and their findings would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
