  1. So, I am 32 and I have been going to the gym for the last 3.5 yrs, training in TKD for the past 2 years, and have been vegetarian for the last 2 years. I have tried the vegan thin in the past without much success. My partner and I recently watched Forks over Knives and decided to gice it another go. We have currently given up dairy and are 2 weeks in, and plan on giving up eggs in 2 weeks. So far we've met a lot of resistence, today I went to Supplement King to get some dairy free protien and was informed that it is pretty much impossible to be vegan and pack on weight because plants do not contain complete proteins. Isn't protien just protien? The only difference is where it is sourced from, no? Even my personal triner has said the same thing, saying it will be hard to meet my nutritional needs. I take TKD classes on MWF, and go to the gym for Cardio and Strenght training TThSa, with Sun as my rest day. I take glutamine, and a protien supplement by Vega, am I missing something? I hope to find some answers. Any help or knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Derick
