    Do you mean Vegetarian? lol.. Also you might wanna rethink the whole vegetarian lifestyle as it is unhealthy for you. Our bodies are literally designed to digest protein in the form of meat (and nuts). Starving your body from it's much needed fuel will cause serious long-term side effects.

    Don't be an ass. Protein is protein whether it comes from animal sources or plant sources.

    ...No.


    Savman,

    Focus on:
    Kale
    Spinach
    Tofu (in moderation if you have a sensitive stomach- and in general soy is not the BEST thing out there, but still healthier than meat)
    Nuts (Almonds a +)

    And check this website out:

    I wish you best of luck!

    Quinoa, beans, chick peas. There's tons of protein sources. Unfortunately, besides the nuts, what you mentioned are not viable protein sources.

    Protein is NOT the same between plants and animals. Bodybuilding is possible with a vegetarian diet BUT your body functions on a wide range or proteins with different functions. A balanced diet is key depending on your needs and goals. Everyone needs to define that on their own.

    Plant proteins are great such as rice, quinoa, soy, etc. They are not hard to come by and not difficult to substitute into most non vegetarian meals. But, in my experience living with vegetarians and doing my best to accomodate that lifestyle is the increase in carb intake when you are cutting out animal proteins. Most plant proteins have a higher concentration of carbohydrates and that is probably not the kind of bulk you want to put on.

    Personally I am not going to commit to being a vegetarian because of the vitamins, minerals, and fats from animals that the body uses in organs other than the muscles. The endocrine, nervous and circulatory systems to be nourished with animal nutrients and there's plenty of highshcool biology to back that up.

    This is not to say that a vegetarian lifestyle is unhealthy. I think you do have to be more creative to balance your diet when you make that choice though. There are a lot of concious changes that have to be made and THAT is where it can become unhealthy. If you do not make sure that your body is fueled by natural combinations of essential nutrients you can get yourself into a lot of trouble (vegetarian or not).

    Strictly speaking of building muscle: watch your carbs and make sure you are still supplying your body with necessary fat. Avocados and almonds are a good place to start. Are you a strict vegetarian or a "pescetarian"? One of my salvations has been that I can make a seafood dinner of my vegetarians without any complaints icon_smile.gif

    There are no animal proteins that are not also available from plants. Because animals cannot make proteins, they get all their proteins from plants, so we should be able to do that also.

    My diet is vegetarian and I don't think that I've done too badly.

    That is completely false. Proteins are not absorbed at all, only amino acids. There are only 9 animosity acids that are considered essential, since the body can't make them. There are 22 in total, 21 of which humans use. The 18 not considered essential are made in the human body as needed...

    That doesn't make it completely false; just substitute amino acids for proteins.

    I used proteins because some people don't know what amino acids are.

    So you dumbed it down too much, and made an inaccurate generalization. That's how bad diets are formed.
