  1. I bought separate hemp, rice, and pea proteins on Amazon, took an empty protein powder jar, and combined it in a ratio of 45% rice, 35% pea, and 20% hemp. Shake it up and you've got yourself a pretty inexpensive protein with a complete amino acid profile with some fiber. It tastes chalky by itself but add cocoa/cacao and stevia as needed
  2. Carbs are your friend as a very active person, so if grains are an issue for you, I would eat lots of sweet potatoes, which are high in carbs and offer complete protein as well. One large sweet potato usually fills me up with no side dishes. Put oil in everything that you can (including the sweet potatoes). Avocados are awesome, I wish I weren't allergic to them Get some dried fruit and mix that with some really fatty nuts and seeds and you can get full pretty quickly. (There are lots of carbs in dried fruit, which i like to think of as nature's candy) and they help to curb your cravings. So to recap, I would focus on: Added oils: Olive and coconut oil Sweet potatoes Avocados Nuts/seeds with dried fruit: Cashews, macadamia nuts, peanuts, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, prunes, dates, raisins, dried apricots, dried figs. I would get all of these, rip up the larger fruits and mix thoroughly. Then you can carry them around with you everywhere. Wow, thanks for all the advice! It's hard for me to stay in a good target calorie range with lots of nuts and oils,but I'll try and see if it helps my hunger levels.
  3. Yes, I aim to eat around 1450 NET (meaning if I exercise, I will eat more). I find that I do better craving-wise without grains because bread and other starchy foods are "trigger" foods for me

  5. In my smoothes, I will add either flax seed or chia seeds(Forgot to mention this, sorry). I supplement vitamin D because the last time I was at the doctor (a year ago), I was told I was deficient. I drink at least 30 oz of water before each meal, and do have quinoa every now and then. I will try hitting all the macros in my meals..especially breakfast. My biggest issue is usually right after dinner. I stir fry the veggies in olive oil, shouldn't that give me all the macros? My weight stayed the same. I have been "eating clean" for years so I wasn't partaking in the SAD. I want to lose weight.

  7. Hi, guys! After being a life-long meat eater, I gave up eggs and chicken (I gave up dairy and other meats years ago already) the beginning of January. Since going veg, I find that my appetite has increased exponentially. I track my calorie/macro intake and find it really difficult to reach over 75 grams of protein without the use of protein powders (I'm trying not to use them,I would rather eat real food). My diet is super plant based. Breakfast: A huge fruit smoothie Snacks: Baby carrots, bell peppers, fresh fruit Lunch: Stir fried vegetables with a cup of lentils Dinner: Various vegetables with lentils and nutritional yeast My calorie intake has increased to around 1450 NET. I am concerned about my protein intake and I would like to lose weight (I am in a sport with weight classes so it would benefit me) but because I feel hungry an hour or two after a HUGE meal of vegetables and beans, I don't feel my weight going anywhere. I'm doing my best to be gluten and soy free because I read that they're inflammatories and I have an acne problem, so soy-free is much better for me. Any suggestions on what to do? Should I eat more beans to satiate my hunger? How much should my calorie cut go to for me to lose weight (net calories)? There are so many calorie calculators out there..I wish there was some magical number for me to lose weight! I am 21 (almost 22!), female, and 125 lbs. Does anyone else have this protein problem? What should I do?
  8. I do Muay Thai and have yet to jump into a fight camp while eating a vegan diet (I recently started). I'm curious to see how I will feel during the training and how fast I will recover!
  9. HUge emphasis on self-defense? BJJ. Most fights end on the ground and being able to punch and kick don't mean anything if you can't get someone bigger off of you. I do Muay Thai, which is good in other respects, but if someone pushes you to the floor, you can only throw so many upkicks
  10. Hi, all! I recently took action and started eating vegan, although my ethics have always lined up with not causing suffering... So far, it's been a week, and I feel great! I fight Muay Thai and really am looking to lose weight while eating vegan. I was wondering how to go about this and how much I should eat? I'm 21, 5'2", and currently 128 pounds but want to go down to 112 in order to fight in a lower weight class. (Please don't start telling me how this is "unhealthy", 112 is a healthy weight for someone my height). If you compete or train vigorously, please let me know how veganism has affected your training! Also, in the wintertime, I always seem to gain weight. I am around 115-120 pounds in the summertime, but once it starts turning cold I gain weight even if I eat the same (sometimes less) and exercise more. I take vitamin D supplements, and have always eaten unprocessed foods. What's the deal with this?
