  1. Check out Marzia Prince on the profiles section of this site. If that is not a fantastic, defined female physique then I don't know what is.
  2. So what is the 'best' vegan protein then, in terms of PDCAAS etc? Soy, in the form of tempeh? Or pumpkin seeds? Maybe a manufactured protein powder? Eric Carlson stated peanuts had the highest protein content per 100g according to his guide I bought online.
  3. I'm still not convinced that soy isolate is healthy.
  4. Thanks for the responses, I think the original article I read was discussing the best ways to directly target the pecs and stressed using heavy, slow reps from the floor position.
  5. I read somewhere that this was a killer exercise to develop a big chest, laying flat on the floor and lifting the weights from that position. Is this true, or is using a bench better?
  6. Never take 'supplements' per se, but I drink fortified soy milk most days either as a milkshake or on cereal etc.
  7. It's just an example of a vegan 'muscle building' meal plan, not what I actually eat. I'd be interested to learn what your simple meal plan looks like though.
  8. I am getting less and less interested in internet forums as time goes by, I find they are filled with so many inflated egos, conflicting information and can make a person more confused about a topic than when they first started.
  9. My advice would be wait for Robert Cheek's book to be released, then follow his advice on diet and training and you should be able to create a decent, muscular body on a vegan diet. Also try eating this: THE NO-MEAT MENU THIS ONE-DAY VEGAN PLAN WILL HELP YOU BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT BREAKFAST OATMEAL 1 cup oats (measured dry) 1/4 cup walnuts 1/4 cup raisins 8 oz soy milk MID AFTERNOON SNACK SHAKE 1 1/2 servings of Vega meal-replacement powder 1 cup mixed berries (strawberries and blueberries) MIDMORNING SNACK SHAKE 1 1/2 servings of Vega meal-replacement powder 1 cup mixed berries (strawberries and blueberries) DINNER LENTIL STEW 1 1/2 cups lentils (measured cooked) 1 cup barley (measured cooked) 2 cups broccoli LUNCH VEGETARIAN BURGERS 2 Boca Burgers with lettuce, tomato, and onion 1 whole-grain pita 8 oz yam NIGHTTIME SNACK PB&J SANDWICH 2 tbsp natural peanut butter 2 tbsp All Fruit Spread 2 slices whole-grain bread 8 oz rice milk 2 tbsp rice protein powder TOTALS 3,560 calories 216 grams protein 510 grams carbs 73 grams fat
  10. Can't say I've ever seen a raw foodist who looked anything than super healthy. Surely a variety of seeds, nuts, sprouted grains, flax, nutritional yeast, algaes and berries such as goji and acai can cover protein bases? The guys over at Organic Athlete, Charlie Abel, Tonya Kay, Brendan Brazier and Giacomo Marchese are in great shape following a raw diet.
  11. Why not buy plain soy yogurt? The stuff I have tried tastes very much like Greek Yogurt, minus the nastiness of dairy.
  12. Don't believe raw foodists are at greater risk of fractures if they consume plenty of calcium rich foods, such as sesame seeds, broccoli and chinese greens.
  13. Big bowl of oatmeal with added chopped banana, seeds and cinnamon. With soymilk.
  14. In terms of fitness, hopefully 2010 will be the year I finally build a decent body on a vegan diet. I've been lifting weights today and I'm even going to buy a treadmill. When Robert's book comes out I am going to follow what he says to eat and hopefully combined with hard training and self belief I will finally achieve a decent body, something I have failed to do for over three years.
  15. Maybe someone could help the guy by posting a few sample daily meal plans?
  16. Looks great, will look forward to the movie being released. Hopefully it will reach a wide audience.
  17. It is a shame it wasn't released beofre the end of 2009 but I will order a copy just as soon as it is released, really looking forward to *finally* having a vegan bodybuilding guide to read and work from.
  18. I would strongly recommend getting the Uncheese Cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak. Plenty of 'cheesy' recipes in there.
  19. I've seen far easier methods elsewhere on the web actually.
  20. I like a decaf soy latte every once in a while.
  21. awesome, I have some tvp I need to use and I had no clue what to do with it, I'm making this asap This sounds great, what exactly are 'crushed' tomatoes? Tomato puree? Any idea of the amounts of the different ingredients?
