  1. I am training to compete in fitness at the Natural Olympia next month. I usually adhere to a whole foods plant based diet. My non vegan coach wants me to eat more protein powder and less carbs. I am looking for any science on protein powders v. Whole foods or anyone's experience. Thanks

  8. I recenty read McDougall's the Starch Solution. I have been trying it out over the last week and I am pretty happy. Although eating all of those carbs is scaring me a bit. I am finding a really great increase in energy and I am alot less irritable. I wanted to see who else has tried this approach and what the results were. Would like to hear some feedback on long term use of the program. Also, how is it for muscle building?
  9. I appreciate the feedback but, I have pushed myself to 1800-2000 cals over the last 1-2 weeks, and, like usual, I put on weight. I feel so much better, stopped binge eating (which usually happens after 4 days at 1200 cals) and have energy in the gym. Really happy with how I feel but am very uncomfortable putting on my weight. If I should be eating this amount and, most of the feedback is that even 2k is not enough then why does this put weight on me?
  10. Let me know how that goes. I don't find that yoga gives me alot of definition but I like to lift and lift alot so I am a weight room gal.
  11. I eat no sugar, no processed foods except for one serving of tofu and 2-4 scoops of raw vegan protein a day, and everything else is whole foods, as raw as possible. I do not eat any "vegan junk food". On the 80/10/10 I just ate raw fruit and raw veggies. Nearly passed out. I have been working, this week, to push myself to eat 2000cals a day. It makes a significant difference in the gym but the extra cals are freaking me out. BTW, I lift 4-5x per week. 4x/wk cardio.
  12. I go through the same thing. This is a great video on metabolic damage. Worth it!
  13. I think it looks good but would agree you could use more LGI veggies. I eat those in unlimited amouints (broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, mushrooms, lots of different lettuces, kale, peppers, etc..) Also, make sure you have a high quality protein powder. Very importamt for muscle building for vegans. Expensive but worth it.
