    so far i've lost 7lbs and lifts are still going up :bowdown:

    i started out wanting to only do it for a month but i think i might keep going.

    i'm 5'8" started at 180 ~11-12% bf and yesterday weighed in at 173 before my workout

    might get my bf measured tomorrow

    was reading some page about not needing meat in your diet and being able to get enough protein from vegetables and seeds and legumes and crap, and decided to give it a try.

    so far my shits come out clean, and i feel fine. i shrunk a little bit but performance at the gym hasn't gone down at all.

    can still eat whey+eggs on a vegetarian diet... not on a vegan

    prob need to supp B vitamins in your diet to keep strength up tho, as meat gives plenty of that.

    lots of dudes will hate on it, but it can be done. I have a vegan friend who put on 20lbs during hypertrophic training with no meat.

    he uses an all-veggie complete protein powder that's expensive as fuck - but it gets the job done if that's your thing.

    Me, i like my steak and bacon too much

    yes but he probably gained a higher ratio of fat to muscle as opposed to one on a non veggie diet.

    I've been into lifting about the same amount of time and I'm about 2 weeks (started Jan 12th) into a no-meat diet for 30 days.

    Weird coincidence. What were your motives? PM me if you want, I love unabashed accounts of others experiences and motives for making conscious life changes.
