  1. Hi Everyone, Brand new here, and I know this topic has been approached from time to time (I searched around a little bit)... But I'm looking for suggestions for some soy-free sources of protein. I'm not able to eat soy-- this post isn't meant as a discussion on whether or not to eat soy, as unfortunately I can't include it in my diet. Right now my protein sources are homemade beans, nuts, and seeds. I use Vega protein shakes. My biggest goal at the moment is to lose some fat and lean up. I'm female, 40, 132 lbs and 5'2". I cycle, spin, crossfit, and do yoga. Ideally, I'd like to lose about 15 more pounds (I'm down 80). I'm also focused on building muscle, but more than anything, I want to be more lean. I know that as I build muscle, the leanness will come along with it. I've been trying to keep my carbs down, under 110 grams. It's a bit of a challenge. I have to really work and pay attention to get 60-70 grams of protein each day, and I'd really like to increase that. I've been vegan since December. Any advice will be valuable to me. Looking forward to being an active member of the board! Thank you! Ally
