Hi! After realizing how much suffering I am causing by eating animals and drinking milk I have realized I want to be vegan. But I have two problems, I'm a bodybuilder and the recommended amount of protein for daily intake is .75% to 100% grams to bodyweight(or lean body mass). Is it possible to get about 140 to 190 grams of protein (I weigh 196 right now) with a minimal amount of soy? Like less then 25%? My daily caloric intake is about 2900 cals.<br>
If you all could give me some suggestions for that it would be great!<br>
And also, if I am eating (on a diet right now) about 2500 cals a day, how much do you think the food would cost for a month?(currently unemployed 20 yr old lol).<br>
I am very excited for this, I feel terrible about all the suffering I've caused. I see this as a great challenge to be big and lean and a vegan to boot!<br>
All the help is appreciated! Thanks so much!

<a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/" target="_blank">NutritionData</a> is likely the database you'll find lots of use for. For instance if you want grains..<br>
100 grams Oats gives 389 Calories, 16.9 grams protein, 55.7 grams burnable carbs, 6.9 grams fat<br>
100 grams brown rice gives 363 Calories, only 7.2 grams protein, 70.9 grams burnable carbs, only 2.8 grams fat<br><br>
High protein sources would be germplasm things, as with oats many grains are ok sources- legumes like beans, lentils, garbanzo beans, peas, etc are better sources without loads of fats- then theres oily seeds like nuts, sesame seeds, pepitas.<br><br>
Soy is an anomaly in that its one of the few legumes with lots of fat, it also tends to be over processed and I dont blame you for avoiding it.<br><br>
If your going to consume this much protein for an extended length of time I hope youve investigated the prospect of kidney damage on high protein diets.

2 g/kg bw is not dangerous.

Seitan is a very high protein low fat food which is made from wheat gluten. If you don't want to use soya protein shakes, I've seen hemp shakes which you could use?

I agree your probably right<br>
... assuming the person in question is in perfect health, has both kidneys, has no hypertension, has no heart disease, and has no history of nephritis, etc. and assuming the high protein diet isnt followed for many years.<br><br>
Not everyone knows to think about all those qualifiers tho, and the first noticeable symptom of a problem is usually a symptom of end-stage renal disease at which point the damage is done and permanent.

you don't need to be in perfect health in order to eat 2 g/ kg bw per day jackass.<br><br>
2 g /kg bw isn't even that much.

Here is an article I wrote about how to save money while shopping for veg foods:<br><a href="http://www.vegansoapbox.com/save-animals-save-money/" target="_blank">http://www.vegansoapbox.com/save-animals-save-money/</a><br><br>
I also second the link to the vegan bodybuilding forum that lucky_charm suggested.<br><br>
And I recommend reading these links about veg protein:<br><a href="http://veganhealth.org/articles/protein" target="_blank">http://veganhealth.org/articles/protein</a><br><a href="http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.htm</a>
