  1. If you juice get one of them reusable produce bags, stronger than a nut bag and let your pulp go in it. I get about another cup of juice squeezing the bag.
  2. You can join a fitness group and there are many variations such as Yoga and Tai Chi, maybe even Barre or Pilates. There are many bodyweight bootcamps you can join or if you go to a Gym they will set you up with a beginner program.
  3. I've been using a Breville for many many years and juice vegetables but then use that juice in a blender then add leafy greens as well as seeds and nut butters. I put the pulp in a netbag used for shopping fruits and such and squeeze it hard, a nut bag is too weak, a bag that you use instead of plastic bags, the holes let some fine pulp through.
  4. There's all kinds of topping for a vegan pizza even vegan cheese. I make my own pizza using nann bread as a base then load it with cooked peppers, mushrooms, onions, vegan cheeze and protein. Have you tried unsweetened and unflavoured oat mi*k, or dark chocolate soy mi*k?
  5. What's a simple routine ? and what kind of job do you have, is it manual labour? A simple routine can be done everyday if you do different body parts like having a leg day etc. Are you lifting weights or calisthenics?
  6. At age 20 I weighed about 128lbs and was 5'9", didn't eat a lot of meat but went vegan and dropped to 118lbs. I lived in the North of England till age 20 then emigrated to Canada, after sometime and eating what Canadians ate my regular weight became 138lbs. I started weight training and gained 10lbs in a month, and 148 was my weight for many years. I did do a bulk diet and gained 24lbs in about 4 months then lost it working construction. I'm now 68 and weigh 148lbs, as I got older the muscle shrunk a little but belly fat started to show. I did drop to 138lbs at one point and was proud of my 6 pack, so now likely go that way in lbs. Photo was in around 2005 . . .
  7. I worked as a general labourer for a builder and eat a lot, prepared a ton of food. Hot food I used a stew/soup thermos, but you have to prep a lot for the day and I do this the evening before. Fruits, sandwiches like chickpea salad, beans in salads, tea, Indian curries in thermos or you can microwave at work.
  8. Last time I had protein powder it was NOW brand soy protein isolate, chalky but good protein, I find pea protein very thick but no issue with using it.
  9. I drink unflavoured and unsweetened oat m*lk 1 cup= 4g protein. Last time I bought a powder it was NOW brand soy isolate, which is somewhat chalky but what the heck! its plain simple protein powder.
  10. Aha! good to see the forum back.
  11. Today July 9th 2018 A&W Canada launches "Beyond Burger" at all locations. They had a vegetarian burger on their menu but it wasn't vegan. https://web.aw.ca/en/our-menu/burgers/beyond-meat-burger
  12. I took a break from the Hot Yoga too work on strength, you can't do both especially advanced Yoga. Then it was time for a break so went back to Yoga, man it was tuff, will do another 3 month deal. Calisthenics works really well with Yoga, stuff like your push-ups etc, even the old Charles Atlas Dynamic Tension method, which I really like. http://www.charlesatlas.com/
  13. Coz I worked construction I'd do a full body routine twice a week, then retired and found every day split much better. Leg day, arm day, shoulders day and a chest and back day. My gym is the apartment buildings Fitness Center so popping down there every morning is great. I can get much more intensity to each body part that way. My workouts can be done in 1/2 an hour instead of the 45 to 60min full body.
  14. When I 1st read this post I misread 6'2ish as 62ish your age, then watching your vid though you looked pretty good for 62 haha! Good effort M8! My video at age 64 last year
  15. Toasted English muffin, peanut butter on both sides and marmalade between. Had this at a coffee hour and really liked it, so bought some thick rind Robinson's marmalade.
  16. Depends what you do outside your work-outs, if you have a non-physical job could mean your not really getting enough. How about some nature hikes for several hours. Are you progressing in your workouts, lifting heavier each time or more reps consistently. https://stronglifts.com/5x5/
  17. Usually in many Vegan restaurants I see images of happy farm cows and made me wonder what was the original wild animal. Now I read they have been back breeding to return the animal to the wilds. The earliest cows were mighty beasts that stood almost as tall as elephants, with lean, powerful frames and fearsome horns that would make a hunter think twice. For thousands of years the aurochs were the largest land mammals in Europe, until the rise of human civilization decimated their numbers, and the last of the species died in Poland in 1627 -- one of the first recorded cases of extinction. https://www.cnn.com/2017/01/09/world/auroch-rewilding/index.html
  18. I've tried various veggie sausage and sausage is really good with Bigos. The texture of a some of brands I tried weren't very good, Field Roast, Tofurky and Gusta all seemed to have same texture kind of mushy. Then I came across Yves kale and caramelized onion sausage, and really liked this texture, kind of meaty and great taste and brown nicely. https://www.horizondistributors.com/wp-content/uploads/yves_sausages_grp-360x289.jpg
  19. This guy has some easy cheap meal prep... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6FtBjNlqu2wNAH87Qj1UVA
  20. We've juiced daily for years, basically carrots, beet, ginger, celery and apple. We use this in a smoothie and blend lettuce, kale or other dark green, banana, peanut butter, frozen or fresh berries, chia seed, and flax basically. never any upset.
  21. I've worn gloves at work, either in a warehouse or working construction. In the warehouse it was a safety issue handling metal Jeep parts. On the job site it was safety, keeping the hands clean from stuff. At home I had a gym and the regular barbell bar was 1" which seemed thin for my large hands so gloves gave a thickness to the bar, also the metal was cold down in my basement. At a gym I never wear gloves, just don't bother. W sold our house and my home gym to downsize after our kids have long left home and moved into a large condo style apartment building. It has a fitness center, I never use gloves, don't really think to even though I still have the old gloves I use to use, some cheap Walmart jobbies.
  22. I was reading you shouldn't go over 1.8. I'll use fake-meat like ground round, burgers and sausage because they are very high in protein. I use Natural Factors Vegan protein because it's a simple blend without soy, not very high protein for one scoop but add it to my muesli cereal with soy bev. I hate stevia so cane sugar is preferred if sweetened. I also get protein from breads, pasta, and other food. Robert Cheeke said he would eat 18 veggie dogs a day plus protein shakes back in the day, then said he cut his protein and made more gains. I went to 3 of Roberts talks, Go if you haven't, he seem's to be a fan of sweet potatoes.
  23. https://www.soylent.com/ Came across soylent online today, it's for people who don't want to eat actual food just 5 bottles a day. I use a non-soy vegan protein blend but add one scoop (11g protein) to my muesli breakfast (12g protein) 3 dates, a sprinkle of sunflower seeds and walnuts, plus a cup of soy bev (8g protein). I usually don't do shakes. I also make a smoothie for breakfast that uses juice I make from carrots, beet, apple, celery and ginger, also if we have vegetable scrapes. Put this juice in a blender and add, lettuce, kale, peanut butter, strawberries, ground chia seeds. My soy is non-gmo organic, tofu, soy bev and occasionally soy sausage, Gardien chicken tenders and ground round. Soylent doesn't appeal to me since I already supplement which various things.
  24. I'm 5' 8" and use to weigh 127lbs back when I was 20, at that time (1973) I did go vegan for a short time and my weight dropped to 115lbs. Around 1984 I started doing some weights with a home gym and went from 130 to 140lbs in a month, I think my appetite just increased. I stuck with it and eventually joined a gym, my weight did go up to 150lbs and that's where it stayed, sometimes getting it up to 154 but it wouldn't hold. 2003 I wasn't vegan at the time but would drink a litre of whole milk everyday, a cup between meals and with meals, and something magic happened, I quickly went to 160 and in just under 4 months was 174lbs. Maybe you can use chocolate soy beverage and healthy fats if your vegan. My workout Squats 1 x 20 reps Dumbbell Pullovers 1 x 20 reps (Immediately after squats) Barbell or Dumbbell Bench Presses 3 x 6 to 8 reps Chins 2 x as many reps as possible Bent Over Barbell Rows 2 x 8 to 10 reps Seated or Standing Dumbbell Press 2 x 8 to 10 reps Barbell or Dumbbell Curls 2 x 6 to 8 reps Standing Calf Raises 2 x 15 to 20 reps Sit-ups 1 x 25 to 30 reps Each time I worked out I'd add 2.5 to 5lbs to my lifts (no matter what), my strength went way up but found I could only do this twice in 3 weeks. Don't be shy to go to a gym, a community center may have 10 visit option fairly cheap.
