@Matt, wow your journey has been  a rollercoaster for sure! My questions are

1. Why do you want to gain lots of muscle?

2. Do you want to be raw?

From a female perspective, pre-vegan I was into very muscular guys, I liked ripped abs and huge biceps, but now I'm raw vegan I have little interest in big muscles. Guys like Chris Kendall and Mike Arnstein are slim, lean and ripped but not big. They appeal to me more now :P 

Good luck with your gains nonetheless, I hope you find the healthiest option for youself.

All right guys! I don't know if you've had a similar experience as myself, but I started body building a couple of years ago and got quite into it. I put on a lot of muscle in the space of a year but that was before I turned vegan. This meant I was consuming eggs, meat and whey protein every day! For many reasons I changed to a plant based diet and believed I would get all the protein my body needed as long as I ate a large amount of fruits and veggies. However, unfortunately I slowly saw myself lose a lot of mass. I'm attaching some pics so you can see my rollercoaster journey. I am now listening to and reading stories from people who have built muscle on a plant-based diet and I have both increased my calories and started experimenting with plant based protein supplements. I have started to see a significant increase in my muscle mass and strength, as well as my recovery time reducing massively! If anyone out there is currently successfully making gains on this diet, or already has, I'd hugely appreciate any advice you could give on how you have achieved this. Similarly if you are struggling to do so, please ask any questions you want and lets start a blog going! Believe in yourself! Peace!

Thanks for the recommendations RawLuigi!

VegaNate

I really like the "RAW" brand protein, all derived from fully raw plants, and the "VEGA" brand is like the top notch in raw veggie supp. hope that helps!

Comment by VegaNate on April 27, 2014 at 7:57am

Well, this is probably the best place to post this question:

A military friend recently asked me about Vegan supplements.  Apparently, in training food options are limited and he wants to know which supplements he can use to replace breakfast and have with dinner. 

Like most, I adhere to a whole foods philosophy. Does anyone have recommendations?

@Dharani You already look pretty good, are you sure there are some fat to lose? Maybe you could keep doing your running/cardio the way you do and add some weighted squats/leg work 2x a week or 3x, depending on what you feel like. Adjust the cardio so you don't get too fatigated because of the squats

Comment by Dharani Jdanov on February 12, 2014 at 3:19am

Hi! I am really trying to lose fat and build lean muscle. Currently I am about 48kg 160cm tall. I workout almost every day, running/cardio for about an hour and then I lift and do core stuff for about 20min. I am not seeing a huge difference so far, even though i have been working out frequently for about 2 months. What would you suggest? I'm currently on banana island. I attached a picture I took today. Hopefully I will have wonderful results soon...

In general... correct me if I am wrong... which I am pretty sure I am... lifting light weights for more reps and less sets makes toned muscles and lifting heavier weights for less reps, but with more sets makes more sculpted muscles right? 

Comment by Jason P on November 15, 2013 at 12:53pm

Hi CarrieAnn,

I have found lifting in the afternoon the best for lifting heavy and with a lot of energy. I find if I am able to eat most of my calories in the morning and at lunch I have a better workout in the afternoon.

For whatever reason, I don't lift well if I've had smoothies before hand (I'm sure one of the more experienced 'Fruit Lifters' could offer their opinion on this). I prefer eating whole fruits that have good water content like apples or oranges before a workout works better for me.

I hope this helps and would be interested to hear what you have been finding with your diet and workouts.

Cheers,

Jason
