vegetarian and vegan powerlifters.

Now this is a serious question. I have alot of friends who are vegetarian/vegan, and I was wondering. Is there anyone on here who is vegetarian/vegan, and what do you do for protein? I know nuts, and seeds. things like this have protein. but i am just wondering how they would do it.

Would whey protein be considered a "no-no"?

Because, if I were vegan, I would clump the powder up into a pile and eat it as if it were a steak.

i drink soy protein. it's vegan...gnc brand and a big tub was about 30 bucks.

not a vegan (anymore) but just weirded out by dairy en mass.

as for meals, eat a lot of beans, rice, oatmeal, whole grains, quinoa, etc.

Oh yeah.


Well, there goes my backup plan for going vegan.

AbdominalSnowman started out as a 300lb vegan because of how fucked up the food industry is, but now he hunts his own meat.

Win-win.

I also drink soy protein, only because whey protein is crazy expensive here, when they opened the wal mart here in Guilin, i was hoping they would have all the cool protein shit i seen when i went back home to Michigan last september, but they don't.

I have mad respect for people who can do it, as long as they are not the kind who want to make everyone like them. I could never do it, never be able to give up eggs, or meat. never ever ever
