  1. Thanks for all the replies I am digesting everything you guys have said. I will come back with more questions soon.
  2. Nice links mate. We try NOT to eat any bread. I think now that I have started going back to gym things should start getting better. Actually I am still under my ideal body fat% 17-25%...but we all know that 15.8% is not perfect The thing is that every 2 weeks or so I attack a 200gm plain white cashew packet and eat it in 10 minutes like a junky! Something about cashews really makes me weak! I remeber as a kid my mum used to try to hide cashews from me inside a rice barallel. If I don't at dairy stuff how will I get Calcium? Btw I love tofu and soya products that I can cook but absouletely cannot drink soya milk. I can't stand the smell or something about it. For me it's TORTURE! I would really like to drink it but it's not gonna happen I have never been fat and still I am not fat but at 32 I feel that I want to get fit/ cut otherwise I will go downhill and evenually get FAT! I am really paranoid about getting fat!
  3. Thanks for the replies. _raVen_ Yeah I forgot fruits. Oranges, grapes, pear and banana mainly. SO vegan would mean no milk, cheese and eggs? Right? I hardly eat any cheese plus I hate eggs. So the only thing I would have to give up would be milk which I am not a big fan of but drink to get calcium.
  4. I have been vegetarian (not vegan) for last 6 years. Both me and my wife decided to become vegetarian the day we got married (6years ago). Anyway I am 32 and in Europe. Glad I found this forum and hopefully will get lot of advice on some of the questions I have. I will give info on myself and you guys could take a look and give me some advice. Age-32 Height- 171cms Weight 65kg Body fat- 15.8% One year ago my body fat % was 11% . I stopped going to the gym for 1 year and my body fat has gone upto 15.8%. I have started gym again as I want to be 10-11% again but for rest of my life Currently I go gym 5 days a week at 10 in the morning and use the step machine for 45 minutes at above average intensity. On 3 of these 5 days I do weights before hitting the step machine. How long do you think it will take me to bring my fat % back down to 10-11%? 3months...6months??? Can someone tell me how many calories I should be eating daily for my age/height/weight? My diet mainly consists of- Milk, Tofu, Black Beans, Cabbage and it's relatives, Green Beans, tons of Spinach, Soya products, Broccoli, cheese, Salad, peas, chick peas. Edit- Forgot fruits- Oranges, grapes, pear and banana mainly. My weakness is eating Cashew nuts I take mutlivitamin (water solluable) tablet every day. Any pointers? Do you think I am on the right track and just need to be patient and keep doing what I am doing?
