I am vegan. Does my way of eating rule out doing BFL? My protein sources are from whole grains and beans which are considered carbs on BFL, so is this an impossibility. I am doing the strength and cardio exercises though.
It's certainly not as easy as if you could at least eat eggs and dairy and fish, but it is still possible to eat a vegan diet and do welll burning fat and building muscle. Here is a site that will get you to some ideas for optimal nutrition for vegans. : www.veganbodybuilding.com
Thanks BFLMike! That website is amazing.
inkjunkie, how are you doing? I started Aug 10 and am also vegan. Have ordered the soy powder and also looking at greens, beans, tofu, tempeh, etc.
Is protein powder considered vegan? It would be a great protein option for at least 2 of the meals.
Soy protein should be. The EAS has a note about the soy powder containing milk ingredients, which I've chosen to ignore as minimal. The other EAS products are all whey, which comes from milk and therefore not vegan.
GNC makes a sot protein that I've used for years. Many times they have a buy one, get one sale, too; they also have a membership card where you can purchase the tubs pretty cheaply.
