wallcrawler83 saidIn a couple of months I will have five years of being a vegetarian, and so far it has been good to me. as a personal trainer and a nutritionist. I would say hell no. that is the worst thing that you can do to your body. There are certain nutrients that you can only get from eating meat. I mean I am not saying you can not do it. But I would not recommend it. Especially if you are going to try and put on muscle. Anyhow, the final decision will be yours?
At the moment I'm having an inkling to go a full on vegan. The only thing is I do enjoy my cheese and eggs and I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I know that I could find a way, I did the same thing when I made the switch to my current diet.
I'm pretty sure this is something I want to do...Any support, ideas, suggestions for the transition?????
Where did you get your "nutritionist" license? ISSA, AFPA or Ace? Sorry, but an online personal training course in nutrition does not qualify you as a nutritionist. Although I wouldn't be surprised if you are a real nutritionist, because ost nutrition information out there has been tainted by the powerful influence of the meat and diary industry anyway. They will have you believe you need a gram of protein for every pound of body weight to be healthy, which is absolute bullshit. Now can you just imagine how our ancestors would have ever achieved such a thing? I hope they had AK-47's, because that's what they would have needed to supply that much protein for their bodies!
There is a vegan bodybuilder named Robert Cheeke. I met him here at a vegan pot luck last year. Super nice guy and ripped to shreds. I bet he would be glad to talk to you. His Facebook page is: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robert-Cheeke/70090235446?ref=ts
I would start there because RealJock has a history of being very anti-vegetarian.
