My goal is to look lean but with definitions. Last time I did a cut, I was looking really skinny. I’ve gained some muscle mass since then. I thought of giving keto a try to get rid of lower belly fat. However its been hard to meet calories on a keto vegan diet. Generally I have a smoothie, tofu or tempeh/lentils switched between dinner and lunch. With some cheat days here and there.
I’m looking to lose about 5-7 kgs because that’s where I felt best both mentally and physically. Do you think it makes sense to reduce my calories drastically and/or up the cardio for the next month or two and have a quick weightloss? Or do i just set myself up for failure this way? Should i take it slowly instead and do more resistance training to fasten my metabolism and recompose my body?
I have been struggling to find a sustainable solution for 80 grams of protein with 1300 calories. I really don’t want to do too much processed stuff/meat/ protein powder etc.
I added yoga into my routine a few months ago and am seeing some changes after feeling stagnant!
Hey reddit! So my gym just got a cold plunge next to the sauna and I am really enjoying it. I alternate cold plunge and sauna a few times. I can remain in the cold plunge for about a minute but I start to get pain in my feet and lower legs. The pain becomes intolerable and I need to get out even as the rest of my body is much more comfortable and relaxed and could stay in much longer.
So my question is Is my body just telling me it's time to get out? Or should I practice tolerating the pain with breathing and relaxation, and it will resolve on its own and improve without any negative effects?
I worry that I'm potentially risking damaging tissue or something? Is this just about discomfort / pain tolerance and I should train myself to endure longer plunges?
Thanks for any advice and shout out to vegans in this sub who love cold plunges ~~
I noticed that meal prep services are gaining popularity--- any good vegan meal kit delivery services?
Never used a service before, because I take enjoy going to the supermarket and I take pride in my cooking. But i'm kinda curious. My only fear is the portion sizes of a meal kit.
If i had a choice, i'd prefer to support a vegan-only company vs. a general meal kit prep company that has 'vegan options'.
I’m having difficulty staying on track longterm. I managed to get fit in 2019 and stayed that way up until recently (with ocassional binges and weight fluctuations). For the past half a year or more I’ve found myself struggling with keeping to a routine and balanced diet. I’ve been vegan for 8 years and did regular health checks and all seems well on that front. My problem seems to be psychological. I can motivate myself to start a healthy routine (going to the gym and eating healthy and regular sized portions of food) and I stick to it for a few weeks but then all of a sudden i let loose and start eating loads of ultra-processed foods. Then I return to my usual routine, and then back again. And i keep finding myself stuck in this loop of restrictive eating and then overeating. Do you guys have any tips for me? I want to get strong and be fit again and I’m kinda tired of this loop.
Ok y'all I love squats. Squats and lunges have always contribute to my leg gainz. However, I can't do heavy weight squats anymore. I have an extensive lower back injury history (ego lifting in my 20's) so now I never rack more than 225 on the squat rack and even then when I do deep squats my back starts to act up. Especially when I work out after a long shift (i am standing/walking a lot these days).
Do any of y'all fitness peeps have any advice on a decent add in? I DO NOT plan on eliminating squats (like ever...) but I have to decrease the weight because my back gets so fatigued these days so easily. I like leg press but I feel like lunges put my legs through more that stacking 14 plates on a press machine. I used to cycle but I feel like my legs got more "cut" but smaller overall. I have been adding in more low intensity cardio and the stair master in preparation for my upcoming cut. I plan on slow progress, 1-3lbs per week, nothing too hardcore.
Would I have a lot of lead in my body and die early? Confused
Basically owyn got sued for lead protein, are there any updates if this was true or any info?
What do you think? Aim for a bit more muscular like the left or aim a bit leaner like the right? Left is 185 and right is 170ish. Never quite got to a full 6 pack but willing and motivated to try again!
Vegan since 13. Here's me when I was 16, internet trolls would always say wait some years to become malnourished. It used to be funny and pathetic but over the years got extremely annoying. Currently boxing with strength training on the side to set animal eaters straight! Vegan for the animals 4 life! 😤
