Vegan & weight training
It is a challenge being conscious to consume enough protein at each meal as a vegan,
especially without high fat. Soy products seems critical. Anyone else faced with this challenge or suggestions. (Some of the vegan bodybuilders on YT have had some helpful suggestions.)
I have no trouble with it, the body only needs 0.8 grams per kilo of bodyweight. All vegetables, fruit, beans, grans, contain protein. I am now preparing to cut down heavily on fat consumption for a leaner look. I am into more of the 'Horiar' beans, lentils, chickpeas, gladiator diet, which was mostly vegetarian, I am vegan, My recovery time is pretty good after training.
@lizzyagatha You eat similar to me....I IF and break my fast at lunch with a substantial salad daily usually adding quinoa or lentils/beans as a protein source. Meeting that .8 grams per kilo of bodyweight is a challenge meeting the protein requirements as a vegan while eating at a daily deficit especially without the addition of tofu/tempeh.
