  1. I'm going to explore that website further once my old supplies of Vega are exhausted. I definitely won't be by the new Vega Sport Performance Protein formula anymore. To terrible a product now to be worth the money they charge. If I can budget sunwarrior I'll try it out.
  2. Last I checked only the Vega Sport changed. They recommend I mix their other products with the sport. If I'm gonna have to mix my own protein I'm not paying a premium for Vega Sport thank you very much.
  3. Those macros are pretty easy on 2000 calories you just have to mix the right proportion of powders, and foods to get it. I use myfitnesspal.com to track stuff you can play around with things you know you'll eat and quantities to achieve your goal. Just take from this list above and plan accordingly.
  4. How do you find the digestability of that mix. I've spoiled myself with vega sport for years and now that their mix is essentially just Pea and Rice I find it's destroying my stomach. Do you add anything else?
  5. Vega Sport doesn't use hemp anymore. Terrible on the stomach.
  6. I'm not sure. The new Vega One is pretty good I'll have to look into it. But it's vitamin supplement not a straight protein like the Vega Sport which is needed.
  7. Awesome! Keep the feedback coming!!! And get in touch with them. If they can't use hemp because of Informed Choice why not Pumpkin Protein??? Sadly I will be switching to a different brand once the old formula is off the shelves... Until Vega Sport is back up to snuff that is.
  8. Will do as soon as I get a chance I'll copy my average day over. I have a few set meals that give 3000 or so calories a high calorie cereal I mix, a lasagne I bake for 5 days every Sunday and a series of small breakfast snacks as I work to early to cook before leaving for the day (my cereal is a lunch thing.)
  9. I'm a huge fan of Vega and take the sport protein everyday. They just changed the formula and took the Hemp Protein out so it could be certified by Informed Choice. Why hemp is so bad even as a Straight Edger I don't understand. But they didn't replace it with something comparable like Pumpkin Protein. Instead it's a thicker chalkier mess... The old one went down so easy. As a huge fan and user of their products I feel screwed over. My stomach is even having a hard time. The price isn't even cheaper though the Brown Rice and Pea Protein they upped the content of costs less. I think they ruined a perfect product. Any thoughts??? Been a while since I posted but this made me angry. If you agree please write them http://myvega.com/contact they could have at least replaced the hemp protein with something comprable. On another note I'm 205lb now I think 25 or so pounds heavier than the last time I posted. -Stacy
  10. I'm gassing up a car right now on my way home from a big Vegan Christmas feast. We laughed about the idea of getting charcoal active underwear. Anybody know where to get some to try? Also are they small or like a diaper?
  11. Gunning for 4500 calories 50/25/25. It's a chore sometimes though.
  12. Daiya is the best! Don't bother with other Vegan Cheeses. And tofurky pretty much tastes like delicious. My favorite is the italian sausage (29 grams of protein in one sausage!)
  13. I use it every morning, I usually only do one scoop (I eat enough to get all my vitamins and minerals) do two scoops if I miss a day. I don't bother with any flavor but berry, I mix it with two cups of fruit juice (white grape juice lately), a cup of frozen berries and another protein powder of choice Vega Sport or Vegan Proteins + or Harmonized Vegan Protein. Mix it with fruit and you are good to go. I even throw in a cup of frozen spinach from time to time.
  14. 23 grams of fat??? damn, I dont think I've never eaten that much fat in one meal. That's not that much fat. Heck I get more from two tablespoons of Omega 3 Flax oil. I'm bulking right now and eating anywhere from 100-200 grams of fat a day.
  15. Did you try the Sport bars? Chocolate Savi Seed???? You must not have because that is the tastiest protein bar I have ever had. Almost like eating a truffle.
  16. I think as with anything it's all about balance. When it comes to "superfoods" I maybe do two tablespoons of cacao and thats about it. Too much of anything is bad. I'm not one to avoid honey but I don't actively seek it. I can see the case for bee pollen as the list of plants who require it is much bigger than I ever thought ( http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_crop_plants_pollinated_by_bees ) . I can also see an argument for it on a board like this as the pollens original source is also from those same plants. Not that I will be running out to buy some but it's interesting to read up on. On a side note I read up on the nutritional value of insects the other day out of curiosity, no cholestoral, some have lots of iron and protein and low in fat. Wonder if we'll see a bugeatingbodybuilding.com one day. Ha! I hope not but apparently bug eating is big outside of North America.
  17. Way back when when I was going vegan i spent a year transitioning and learning. I feel thats the best way to approach and avoid the rubberband effect.
  18. I wish I was actually in Oahu. And yes the mustache is real.
  19. I don't know what all this talk is about soy lechtin attaking the brain. I've read that it is a good source of Choline which is part of the B group of vitamins and helps the nervous system as well as cellular tissue function. Maybe you should find science that debates what your sister is bringing up or even debate the diet she ate when she was vegan. When young people tend to go vegan they tend to not eat well at all potato chips and garbage etc. See what she ate as that is probably part of her problems. Figt back wit facts and science. Find papers on the poor health effects of animal products dairy products etc.
  20. I've been paying close attention to my nutrition levels this week anx the only thing I have been short on is Choline. From what I've read on it it sounds very important regardinguscle tissue and development. Does anyone know a good source or supplement of it? - Stacy
  21. Well if you wanna build muscle you've gotta eat ; ). I've been making this with a large serving of oatmeal lately. Even tastier!
  22. Whats your weight? I need around 2500 to maintain my weight and 1000-1500 to cover my work day and training. I weigh about 180 and it's what I need to keep it up. I'm gonna need more when I wanna gain weight.
  23. Depends on your current weight, desired weight and activity level. Did you buy the App 'Lean Me'? I find it the best.
