Hi, I'm not new to a vegan lifestyle. I was raised vegetarian and from the ages of 11-17 I was on a string of diets to avoid supposed food intolerance. By the way, I'm almost 21, female, 5', and 98lb. After many years of suffering, my family and I found out that the symptoms we thought were associated with food are actually caused from stress and anxiety. After hospital doctors giving this info I then proceeded to eat a normal healthy vegetarian diet (I love produce) while continuing to feel burdened by my symptoms. At the age of 18 I went on another diet to avoid foods from the advice of a naturopath (I no longer work with this person) and then still feeling sick I decided to go on a 100% raw food diet. I thought that was it for me, I thought raw foods would save me. Wrong! I then became very, very ill and after 6 months of constant digestive upset my body was giving me every sign of candida. You name it, I had it. I then went on a candida diet for 1 year. I also went to another naturopath and he told me that I don't have candida, my body is just giving me all the signs with no candida present. Weird huh? What caused this to happen? Anxiety and stress, which I have much of in my short life and I'm currently taking care of it. So, up until a few months ago my diet would consist of lots of vegetables, some gluten grains, whole grains, legumes, fruit, healthy fat, occasional egg and little nuts. I was happy with this, except I was maintaining my weight of 94lb at 5', and very unhappy with my appearance. I have been lifting weights since the age of 13 and I finally decided to take bodybuilding seriously. It has been a dream of mine since the age of 5 to build as much muscle as I can and to compete. A few months ago I drastically increased my protein intake to 100+ a day, when before it was probably only a low 10 grams. I managed this by consuming brown rice protein (sun warrior and I HATE THE STUFF), dairy, eggs, cheese, and some salmon (never would have imagined that I would resort to eating dead flesh of a living thing, just so I can have muscle). I really do not enjoy consuming these new foods I have introduced into my diet. Yes they taste good, but I believe that in the end it will cause disease and cancer. MAIN QUESTION I would love to eliminate these foods from my diet, but if it means that I don't get to build large amounts of muscle then you can forget it. Right now I'm considering to choose having muscle over health and this doesn't sit well with me. Also, I do not want to look like a thin fitness model, I am looking for something like Jamie Easons look. I DO NOT WANT TO EAT ANY SOY! I do not want to look like this. Though it is beautiful, it is not what I'm after. I would like to look like this or maybe even more muscle (I know that with my genes/frame that I may never look like this) Thank you for your time, its greatly appreciated! I apologize for this being so long!
