  1. hello, i find this articel from mike mahler http://www.mikemahler.com/articles/vegan_diet.html no soy, no wheat? just beans, nuts, seeds ? thats pretty hard and a real problem. i need 120 gram of protein a day. thats hard because nuts ans seed have so much fat. no way in a fatlosdiet.
  2. for 2 months Very short period to detect significant differences....
  3. Sorry, i read that Fabian Hambuechen join regularly a weights room. So he build (a part of his mass?) by using weights. I don't know, if other gymnast use only their bodyweight. The Problem is, it is difficultto find a guy that only use his bodyweight. Most of this guys use BWE and Kettlebell oder Sandbags, weightvests, Tubes or other Tools.
  4. What is your purpose? If you train with hard BWE like OneArm-Pushups, Onelegsquat, OneArm-pullups, Ironcross you will get a very muscular body. Look at gymnast or olympic wrestler. "I was just wondering, are there many that have created a good physique using bodyweight exercises alone and does anyone have any pictures of these people? " This is a young german gymnast fabian hambuechen. And i think this body is realistic with only BWE and no extra weights. http://barnie.homeip.net/Fotoalbum/fotoalbum_bild_anzeige.php?lfd_nr=155&album_id=400
  5. Hi Alex, can you post a one day meal plan during you cuttingtime oder precontest-time in this thread? Like Meal 1,2,3,4,5,6 with calories and macro ratio. That will be great!
  6. @ veggieprincess Very, very good job. Do you have switched to carbs, yet? what about our eating-pattern? do you go now on a normal healty diet? or any longer the lowcarb way? Can you post a typical eating plan for a day with a lowcarbvegandiet? thanks!
  7. And now, my training plan. Simple, but ... you know... #1 High Intensity Training (HIT), a high level of intensity, lift 8-12 times, using 4 second negatives. Full Bodyworkout, 2 times a week. Home Workout with dumbbell -> Floorpress, Dumbbell Squat, pullups, curls, Dumbbell Single Leg Calf Raise, Crunches. #2 Four times a week martial arts training. heavy sandbag boxing, Shadow boxing, 40 min. a session. thats it 6 days training, 1 off.
  8. Okay, let's go. I wan't to go on a vegan diet. And i have only 3 rules for my diet. Simple rules, but no easy THE RULES #1: A calorie deficit. The amount of calories are calculated by the Basal metabolic rate (BMR). The difference is my deficit, dependent on my activity level. Approximate 500-1000 cals/d. #2: No Sugar. No monosaccharides and disaccharides (the only exception are fruits), because the are in conjunction with health problems* Perhaps a little artificial sweetener, like a diet coke. #3: Only healthy fat. No Saturated fatty acids. Just Unsaturated fatty acids accent on omega-3 fatty acids (eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)). like flax seed oil, Linseeds, nuts, wholemeal (oatmeal). That's it, simple but not easy. And a minimum of 2 liters of water (0.5 Gal -> better 1 Gal a day) * references (1) Larsson SC, Bergkvist L, Wolk A: Consumption of sugar and sugar-sweetened foods and the risk of pancreatic cancer in a prospective study.

  9. Hi folks, i start a training blog, too. my goal: bodyfat at 10% and sixpacks abs and put on some muscle (4-5 lbs lbm). Training und Nutri Infos later. And, i go a vegan way. So please Stay tuned!
  10. Hello Melissa, i had to put a lot of work in my calves to see little muscle. it is not a nations-problem:-) But i can understand you. my beautiful wife had the same problems like you. she is "genetic gifted". by only doing the cindy crawford video with 5 lbs dumbbells, she build big muscles She go on a low carb & fat &cal diet und get sixpacks abs. thats sensational for a girl to go on 10% bodyfat. But that was to extreme, because i can already see her clavicle and pelvic bone. That was a real heredity-problem.
  11. Thats incorrect! If you want to lose weight (bodyfat) a calore deficit is absolutely necessary! If you eat natural foods you can lose weight, too. Because fruit and veggies are low in calories, so you have a unconscious calorie-deficit. If you choose calorie-concentrated foods like bananas, peanuts, coconut....and you have a calore-overplus you will gain bodyfat. independent of natural foods.
