Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum. Hey, I've finally decided to become a vegetarian and had a couple of questions. I'm currently 18 years old, 135 lbs., and about 5' 11". Just today I signed up for a gym because I really want to start building arm muscles and start getting my body into shape. I told my friends this and they said building muscles is impossible without eating meat. Is this true? What kind of foods should I be eating to make sure I don't get tired or exhausted when working out? I'm going to try to go to the gym every other day for at least an hour each time. This is going to be hard for me because I was basically raised on burgers and chicken, but I'm cutting all forms of meat out of my diet now. So what kind of foods should I eat to keep my body healthy while bulding arm muscle at the same time? I'm also new to working out. What kind of exercises and machines should i be using at the gym to build my arm muscles? Any help is appreciated.
