  1. I go through a tub of vega sport performance protein chocolate every week. I love that stuff!
  2. Dude, there are none. You can only ingest dietary cholesterol from animal sources. Dietary cholesterol is one of the main reasons for going vegan! It has a direct correlation to cancer. And im pretty sure it doesnt boost test very much. We make enough cholesterol in our bodies.
  3. Quick update and bump. My weight is 188 at 8% bodyfat. I feel pretty crappy, but my refeed yesterday seemed to help. But it sped my metabolism up alot. Now today on my regular eating days, my energy loss is more intense as my metabolism just rips through the food I give it. I cant wait to get pictures up this weekend
  4. Measuring bodyfat is pretty difficult. I dont really measure, I just go by what I see. The most accurate methods are pretty expensive. And most calipers are,rather inaccurate. Keep up the good work, youll get ripped in no time.
  5. Hows it going. Nice journal! How are bodyfat levels moving on your cut?
  6. Welcome to the forum brother, its a great community to be a part of. The first couple days youll likely be flushing alot of crap and toxins out of your body from your old diet. What does your carbohydrate intake look like.? How much do you weigh? How much body fat are you carrying? Were you a relatively healthy omnivore before making the switch?I have to know some stats to give you advice. But so far you sound like your on the right track brother. Keep your head high and trust yourself, youll be feeling healthier soon!
  7. Thanks C. O., got an update for you right here mini. Currently weighing in at 193 lbs. Ten lbs down since I started the cut! Macros and calories are pretty much the same. Some days look like this now for lower carb cycling. 50%P/20%C/30%F My energy is kinda crappy at times. But strength is through the roof?!? I deadlifted My 2 rep max of 405 in a leg workout the other day. Which I havent been able to pull even once on this deficit. I am confused but happy. Here are some pictures, I edited some text into one. The light outside made my almost albino like white skin hide some of my best cuts, Ill have to tan hard this weekend. - Tyler Pfalzer http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/08/20/qyhe9aqa.jpg http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/08/20/zuzaqyve.jpg
  8. I think youre a little too frightened of soy. Rice contains arsenic, especially brown, many seeds including flax seeds contain cyanide like compounds that when soaked in liquid(like in shakesyummy!) Create low doses of cyanide. Humans are strong and resilient, and if we start avoiding everything we're going to become deficient in our diets somewhere. Our bodies can handle low doses of these toxins, especially when the foods come with so many healthy benefits. Unprocessed soy is awesome, and I personally believe tempeh to be a superfood. Im not trying to entice argument by any means, Im only stating personal opinion. It is difficult to eat over 200 grams of protein without unprocessed soy, and without supplements as a vegan and still fit macronutrient profiles like that of a professional bodybuilder.
  9. I pretty much lived on lentils brown rice and spinach for months and made solid gains. I was extremely poor and I never gave up. You do what you can now, try not to worry about protein powders if thats going to be your main source of protein. Spend that money on actual foods that are high in protein. Dry lentils and beans, opt for pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower seeds. If you can afford protein powder after youve scored enough food than go for it.
  10. My energy isn't bad. It's not optimal, but my strength hasn't really dropped at all. Which is odd. This diet isn't optimal for health, but it's optimal for contest preparation so this is to be expected. Just can't wait until I can eat a bunch of fruit again. Thanks for the support MF, It helps! -Sunwarrior
  11. Your training is incredibly balanced, very awesome stuff in here Scott. Keep up the great work.
  12. She was probably recovering from a poorly planned 80/10/10 diet.(im against 811 anyways, but still) For her fakeness and her bashing, I hope she never gets her six pack. Not trying to be spiteful, It just makes me sad to see someone bashing veganism as she never even tried nonraw veganism.
  13. Great post MF. While I dont follow the sport of powerlifting, I really enjoy it. It was a real inspiring read. Very motivating. That dude is strong! Thats some crazy lifting. -Sunwarrior
  14. I would like to make the smallest point. Somebody above said to do it correctly you need 5 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight. Im like 195 very lean. Thats 1000 grams of carbs a day, and at ten percent of that only 100 grams of protein, and maybe 40-50 grams of fat. Thats borderline ignorant. I will never eat that much sugar or carbohydrates in a single day.
  15. Macronutrient ratios are around 40/30/30. Calories cycle between 1850 at the lowest and 2300 at the highest. I am hungry. :/ I have alot of fat to lose still so im kicking it into overdrive this week. 4 weeks out on saturday! My hunger can be intense while at work. I dont enjoy running out of protein powder. That extra bit helps. Tonight a sample plan of my incredibly restrictive 4 week out contest diet. 4 blocks of Tempeh 1 block of tofu A bag of steamed broccoli The macronutrients for this are really nice but they escape my carb depleted brain. Theyre logged on the website fitday.com Which is a good website by the way for logging your food. Training has been intense as hell lately. I havent been logging many workouts. But ill log my workout tomorrow for everybody. The only things that have changed training wise are more cardio, ive been focusing more on muscle pump and shape as the show draws in. But that doesnt mean Ive been lifting light. -Sunwarrior
  16. Micronised Creatine Monohydrate is what I would recommend. 5 grams before and after your workout. 5-10 grams on non training days. No side effects.
  17. After you drink your post-workout shake attempt to eat within an hour of your last sip. Especially if the goal is to put on mass. I made great leaps in bodybuilding progress once I got my post-workout nutrition mastered.
  18. Mini you seriously make some amazing looking food, I'm cutting hard and your killing me with all your delicious vegan food porn! Hows it been going lately buddy? You seem to be doing swell, make that swole by the looks of it brother. Good luck with all your goals and dreams! -Sunwarrior
  19. Yeah I've already been prepping for about 3.5 to 4 weeks up to this point. So about 8-9 weeks in total. Macros haven't really been precisely tracked up to this point but look something like this. Protein/Carbohydrates/Fats 50%/40%/10% Next week I'm thinking it will look more like this. 60%/30%/10% I'm pretty excited. I'm actually happy i didn't get to do any of my previous shows, it feels almost destiny, like i've been preparing for this show for 3 years. The result of all my hard work and sacrifice over the years feels like it's starting to show, at least in my own eyes, which I feel is most important. -Sunwarrior
  20. Ill be competing September 14th in the 2013 Battle for Tidewater down in Virginia Beach. Im excited, ive got money to put towards this contest this year, as funds in the past have caused me to pull out of previous contests and even the 2012 Battle for Tidewater. Things seem to be going swimmingly for the most part, at least according to my prep planning. Im about 197 pounds and id like to lose at least ten more pounds of fat by contest day, maybe 12. Ill post updates about diet, training, and ill also post pictures.
  21. On saturday ill be 6 weeks out. Just a quick morning shot. Abs are finally coming in fast.
  22. Heres a new picture. Im 7.5 weeks out from my first bodybuilding contest. Its been incredibly motivating to prepare for a contest finally and to actually have the funds this time.
  23. Heres a new picture. I have to be honest, this is my favorite picture ive ever taken. Just a quick shot I took when I got home from work this morning. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/07/18/9yrareba.jpg
  24. Ive also experimented in cycling dosages such as 5 grams a day for one week and then 30 grams a day for the next week, then 15 grams a day for two weeks etc. I honestly noticed incredible strength on higher doses. Its something to experiment with definitely if your lifting really heavy. See how it affects your lifts, not just lifting more or less, but how it actually feels to lift a certain weight over a period of a few weeks. How do your muscles feel?, Is it increasing recovery time even faster than before? These questions are things I ask myself when trying different dosages.
