Re: [veganbodybuilding] protein
- Hi Mitch,
I've not put everything about protein into one place. I have just finished
my clinical nutrition course, but this week I started a 'fitness therapist'
course, so until the end of June I'm pretty booked up again (got to read &
reference a whole load of corrective exercise stuff, do the work etc). If
there are any specific questions you have like soya & phyto-oestrogens & why
you should probably be more worried about dairy if you believe oestrogen is
an issue then I can reference some pretty scary studies about oestrogen in
dairy (crazy amounts in modern milk - that's all milk, grass fed as well due
to selective breeding & constant impregnation), you can find some choices of
protein powders on the supplement pages
http://www.veganbodybuilding.org/supps.htm I've found that basically you
need more protein per pound if you are after hypertrophy compared to say
strength increases (purely anecdotal that one). Between about1-2g per kilo
is a good average, although some can go higher or lower without any negative
effects (varies from person to person). You tend to need the higher % if
I wrote a basic nutrition plan in PDF format it's
in word format it's
might find something in that you can 'harvest' for a guide. Basically
the guidelines for protein are covered in that.
I'd be interested in what you produce when it's finished as well.
If you need anything specific just let me know.
