I know that veganism is often slammed in the T Nation forum and I get that conventional wisdom / bro science and the fact that a lot of vegans are pains in the arse are all contributing factors .
I have been training for 4 years with weights and I want to keep going . I have decided to modify my diet to whole food plant based after being drawn to it fir many years for both ethical , environmental , health and compassionate reasons . There are many vegan bodybuilders and athletes online these days to draw inspiration from .
I’m a woman I’m 42 I have no desire to be huge or ripped or anything . My goal is to be healthy , strong and lean for as long as possible .
I am aware that most articles are aimed at men but I was inspired whenever I saw CTs suggestion for a healthy low inflammatory diet in one of the threads … it was basically what I eat minus the fish ( I eat tofu or tempeh instead )
I’ve been plant based for four weeks now while comleting the hard body training for women including the optional sprints day and feel fine …
I am interested to hear other people’s perspective especially CT’s on vegan diets and if you think the T Nation world is ready to accomodate such a fast growing trend among young people?
