  1. Hello! I am elastic vegan about month. Elastic because sometimes there is no 100% vegan friendly meal in cafe, where i use to eat dinner between lectures. So... i wanna start with fact, that i do not feel good in trainings. I am not weaker, but i feel weaker, it is more painful to do training. I feel tired. My body feels clumsy and weird - muscles doesn't work like before, its hard to describe, but now muscles working is more jerky - seems like ill get convulsions ( i remember the feeling when some years ago i used too much green tea and i got problems with muscle cramps). Sometimes my head aches a lil bit. I don't use any supplements or soy products - and i really don't wanna use supplements, maybe soy products for a rare. I think i eat ok: 1)before morning exercises(running, or jumping with skipping rope + joint warming and little stretching): 1 glass water and 1 apple after 2) after morning exercises: full corn oat flakes or millet + sesame seeds+raisins+coconut milk or margarine, sometimes i add kites. (it can be about 100-150 grams oat flakes and i have no idea about all other) 3)eating at university cafe - it is various: ussualy salads, grains, legumes 4) apple or banana 5)salads depends on days and seasons (dills, basil, tomatoes, chives, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, onions, rutabage, garlic, sorrel and so on...) 6) potatoes, grains ( rice, buckwheat, pearl barley, full corn pasta), legumes (beans and lentils). 7) it isn't strict eating time, i use to eat between meal time, or after that (ekological brown bread, peanuts, sometimes walnuts and almonds, sesame and sun-flower seeds, halva, dark chocolate, oranges, apples, bananas, raisins, dates, humos, cannabis sandwich spread etc...) In holidays i eat a bit different, but its still something like that. And drinking - i drink water about 1,5-2,5l a day + 1 cup green tea+ 1-2 cups latvian herb teas. i make attention to buy products without food fixings (e-stuffs), to don't buy GMO food. I live in Latvia, and i try to eat food what grows in my climate for most. I buy vegetables and fruits from local farmers mostly.I make attention to seasons, for example, in summer i eat more greens, tomatoes etc..., but in winter i focus on roots (carrots, celery etc..). i train periodical - i know thats isn't good. I go in for fitness and parkour (for body it means something like gymnastics). If i am not lazy Training is 6-7days a weak. I run or jump with skipping rope every day in the morning. 1day,3day, 5 day i go in for body building and 2-4-6-sometimes7day i go in for parkour.) After every training i go in for stretching for about 1 hour. For body-building training i pay about 1 hour, no more, but for parkour it depends from situation from 30 mins to 3hours. I had no problem till i ate meat and dairy, but now i feel really clumsy. I didn't have problems with health, i felt good. I got a lil bit sick probably once a year. As i told it isn't like i am weaker, but i feel clumsy and tired. I even sleep more and can't get up for the morning exercises. I don't wanna say i feel really bad, i can study and use my brains, there is no problems in other ways. I wanna say my muscles feel weird and i need much more time to rest, especially my legs muscles always are sore, like just after training. Could it be b12 deficient? but i doubt it can be so fast... What is your suggestions? Should i really take supplements? I just like to eat natural, i don't know will i believe that veganism is good for my body if i must use supplements. Ill add photos to check my body last summer, when i wasn't vegan, there is no much difference from today: http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/556/img2594g.jpg http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/657/imgp2341.jpg http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/1160/img2355p.jpg P.S.
