    I'm not a vegan, but I frequently include vegan and detox meals into my diet. I'm a very obese woman, but my heart is strong and my cholesterol is low. So, I'm doing something right at least... HAHA! I can't help much, but come to me for vegan recipe ideas, and I'll hook you up! Slow cookers and instant pots are awesome tools! Parchment paper for lining baking sheets, and no matter the diet, when it comes to stovetop cooking, nothing beats cast iron!

    I did a vegan challenge for 6 months.

    I did supplement with creatine, bet-alanine and turine. B12 is supplemented in a lot of vegan milk or meat substitutes. Sprouted vegan protein powders are best but these are expensive.

    a variety of nuts and seeds like walnuts, pumpkin seed, chia seeds, cashews, sunflower seeds. Alpen muesli cereal has a fair amount of protein combined with soy milk. You have to let your system adjust to beans, a little at first.

    Dal curries are really good, like Dal Tadka and Dal Makina

    freshyvegysporty First of all, I like to make the distinction between sport and fitness/exercise. Perhaps this is more evident at present in my country (Canada) because harassment in hockey (our favourite sport) is at the forefront of our media, and it brings to light the macho nature of sport. I know it is a fine distinction, but for me it is important, because the mindset helps to define everything. A lot of my life I spent in male-dominated environments and did fitness alongside them, and the attitude was not healthy. Everything is a competition and it is about coming first. I remember at one point, during my time in the military, that I took part in a brigade level military skills competition. I can't remember what exactly it comprised, but it had a rifle shoot, rope traverse, log carry, 20 km ruck march, obstacle course and navigation exercise. My regiment finished 2nd, which I thought was a pretty good accomplishment, but one of the first soldiers that I saw when I got back told me "2nd is just the 1st place loser." Sorry if this is too drawn-out of a point, but I think it is important. Fitness is not about showing off, it is not about coming first, it is not about making other people feel bad ... it is just about you and how well you get to live your life.

    Going vegan is not something that I have a lot of experience with but I aim for pescatarianism (though we do slip in some red meat from time to time). My best advice would be to settle in for the long haul, and worry more about overall fitness as opposed to building a lot of muscle mass. To give you an indication of my body type, I would say that I am about 15 pounds from my lowest practical weight, but my BMI has me listed as obese, because I am a larger build. Despite my time in the military, my upper body is stronger now than it has ever been (I am in my early 40s) but despite my frame being able to hold more muscle than most people, I am not bulky, just toned. The guys who get ripped are into a different kind of fitness than what I do, but all of it is not necessarily functional.

    I guess in terms of a vegan diet, the best thing that I could offer would be to look up a bunch of slow cooker recipes for that. It seems to me like that would be easier to prepare a meal plan. There are guides on this site for plant based diets under Mealplans.

    Hiya, Totally a newbie here looking to meet people who can help me along my new sports journey. I just had a GYM membership, and have been looking into a plant based diet at the same time.. So lots of new changes happening in my life, doing sports and becoming vegan at the same time, the sports side I don't worry about as much but the vegan part is what worries me.. there's so much I still don't know like how to have a balanced, healthy vegan diet, compensate for the protein intake per day for someone looking to build a muscle mass, best vegan protein supplements ? how do I go all about this? Also, my goal is to build a lean, shredded muscle body and my body now is at average, it's been a couple of weeks since I started all of this. all advice and help are much needed and appreciated. thank you!
