    I Seem to notice a lot of guys on here when talking about performance eating and diet in general weigh very heavily on animal proteins as a primary source for consumption. I'm personally Vegan and was wondering how many Vegetarians (Vegan, Lacto-ovo vegetarians) or other variations are on this site?

    I'm a vegetarian and have been since 1990. For dairy products, I do eat organic range free eggs, cheese, yogurt and whey.

    There is an article about how vegans get protein here:

    awesome...Im glad im not alone ha. I was wondering what you all do workout wise, I know it's been proven that a vegan and a meateater can still do the same things but I seem to notice I do reach fatigue a bit sooner than I used too when I ate meat.

    do you all experience the same thing?

    Vegetarian since 1986. Been wondering about other guys here. I do the yogurt, protein shakes, cottage cheese, nuts, tempeh (yum!), and I'm trying to cut down on the tofu because of the estrogen effects that I've been reading about.

    Repto-? Surely not.

    Matt, hemp protein tastes even worse than tofu, but has fewer estrogens in it. Good for keeping your manly shape, but not so good if you want to breast feed your dog

    "Repto-? Surely not."

    Once, down in Florida, I had some alligator at a fancy restaurant. It wasn't very good... tough, dry, and bland.

    BTW, the online protein vendor I use is now offering a protein derived from peas, and it's getting rave reviews:

    My man eats meat. He ate whale, dolphin and puffin when we were in Iceland. He's a very naughty chap

    can we please keep this thread not about the animals people eat but what we vegan/vegitarians eat and how we preform.

    There are no real threads or sections for us on here so Im trying to start something!

    Ovo-lacto vegetarian here since 2004...one of the best choices I made and I recommend it to any willing to listen.

    On the performance thing, I don't think I'm affected, but I've been vegetarian since I was 9, and fat until I was 17, so I don't really have a pre-vegetarian athleticism to compare with

    Can we bounce off of each other some interesting grains we've all tried and might want to share?

    also, what is your favorite vegetarian dish and share the recipe!

    but if we're not supposed to eat animals, why're they made out of meat?

    fryblock, i hope you took my comment in the spirit it was meant (not the one about cheerios, that wasn't directed at you). there is rarely a case where a little humor isn't welcome. i have found one in the author of this thread.
