I was asking at a bodybuilding forum if there were any vegetarians/vegans, so I decided to come here and ask the vice-versa. Is anyone here either into body building or do anything such as being a physique/figure competitor?



I was a vegetarian for years and then a vegan for a few after that, but then just stopped. Recently I've wanted to be a vegetarian again, but it seems that most percentages I read (food ratios) tend to not be calculated for someone who works out a lot or is into things like bodybuilding. I'm currently starting on my quest to be a physique competitor, though it's a long way off. But I really need to know more of how much I should be eating (especially in amounts of protein) if I'm typically training 6 days a week.



If anyone sees this who can help, I'll provide basic stats:

21.2% BF

age 21

Female (the username gives that away haha)

132 lbs.

I work out 6 days per week. Generally alternating between different muscle groups all week with weight training and then doing cardio for about 30m three times per week.



Thanks so much if anyone can help!

nice to meet your muscle, www.veganfitness.net, do you know that ? best place !!



yes, me a fitness/or rather a muscle guru.. of a modest kind if you like but nontheless yes aspects of body building, but neither professional nor amateur, as I don't need a label for it, UNLESS incumbent for me to have one which is not all that likely I will require aquiring any label.



Don't know about stats. spose I don't mind paying just a little attention if justified to stats and measurements, but I don't generally mither myself with that stuff.



The bodybuilding forums as you probs know have a bodyspace area for all your stat needs if you are really intent on taking all that aspect to heart

I do indeed know about bodyspace. I hope to use it more in the future, but for now I don't feel the need to take measurements. I'm just on the start of my journey (have been working out hard since June of this year, but slipped a bit around September when I got married). I'm keeping up with BF% and diet, but other than that the rest isn't a big deal to me until I start getting to the point I want to be getting to if that makes sense. Thanks immensely for the link, I'll check it out

Ha, actually that's exactly what I did. But I changed it to something completely different now. The mangled "LOL" I put there as a placeholder until I could figure out something else

Didn't realise SeaSiren was Denise Nicole!



I really recommend Robert Cheeke's forum, some really clued up people there who will no doubt be able to answer all your questions about diet.

Gym.Femme, beware of people telling you that you need 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight, or things in a ratio like that. Look at the source of that information. Pick up any muscle mag (even the yoga soccer mom styled Oxygen magazines) and you'll see what I mean. Whey and Soy protein supplement salesmen fund research that shows you need whey and soy protein supplements. Make educated decisions and you'll do great!
