  1. If I may ask, what do you think it does and why do you think so?


    I assume it prevents muscle catabolism/preserves muscle mass - just how it's marketed.

    ..guess I'll look into it a bit further.


    Wikipedia seems agree with you guys.

  2. So I just picked up this product from gnc and I'm trying to figure out if it's vegan before I take it - guess I should have done that before I bought it, but whatevs.


    The ingredients I'm wondering about are:

    Mirconized Fermented L-Glutamine

    L-Glutamine Alpha Ketoglutrate








  3. seitan is great. It's so simple to make.. and it's high in protein


    I usually make faux chicken, then slice it into chicken-strips and throw it on a salad


    .. you have to make sure you use 'VITAL wheat gluten' when you make it, otherwise it won't turn out


    there's a bunch of seitan recipes found in the lovely Sarah Kramer's cookbook



  4. I'm John from Toronto, Ontario, Canada ..26 years old


    I've been a vegetarian for the past 10 years, and recently decided to kick it up a notch and become vegan (about 6 months ago). That switch has been amazing for me! I lost about 15 pounds without even trying, shortly after becoming vegan. It took some getting used to... as far as knowing which foods were vegan.. like I had no idea regular margarine had whey in it. But now I've developed a bit of an intuition for which foods contain dairy.


    I'm 6'4" at 195 pounds with a medium build. I hit the gym at least 4 days a week... don't really have any real fitness goals at the moment.. just being active and persistent. Aside from the gym, I plan on doing a lot of biking and swimming this summer.. and take some hot yoga/meditation classes.


    I decided to sign up to this site because I like supporting and being apart of anything vegan/vegetarian, and to talk with other vegans (i.e. you guys) .. and maybe kill some time
