I have given up all meat for Lent, including fish, and have been searching for a natural/organic substitute, especially an org/nat protein powder for post work out. Any experiences, suggestions ?
I have been loading up on eggs, kefir, nuts and greens thus far.

FYI..you are allowed fish on Fri during Lent...

Dont sacrifice muscle and amino acid deficiencies during Lent...I would look for aomething else that you can give up and still be a sacrifice but without a negative effect on your training or health.

Might not be sooo bad for your health, especially considering it is a matter of weeks, not years w/o meat.

1. keep your calories sufficient
2. supplement with egg white protein powder, hemp seed protein powder, whey + casein, hydolysed whey after workouts
3. Quinoa (a grain that contains all the AAs)
4. Tempeh (cultured soy product, probably better than tofu)
5. Eden Brand soy milk w/o sugar (11gP, 5gC, 5gF)
6. cottage cheese
7. Nuts

I personally feel like fasts/sacrafices in the name of something greater than yourself are great for the mindbodyspirt. So more power to you.

my understanding of it is that the hydolyzed whey allows for rapid absorption. the bodybuilding guys say to take that only directly after or during a workout.

I tried the hydrolyzed whey some time ago, it wasn't bad except for the offending gas that it gave me (nothing clears an elevator faster). I tried some hemp seed protein on the advice of Dr. G, it was good, and it has a LOT of fiber (be forewarned). Fills you up though...

Thus one of the MANY reasons I canceled my "Roman Catholic Church, Inc" membership. The whole concept/idea based on sacrifice (giving up this, giving up that i.e "10% of your income"), so you can later be rewarded with a spot in heaven. Finally was able to free myself when I stopped looking for someone else to tell me how to live my life.

I just started the zone and I've been using Goatein. It's organic goat milk protein powder.
.5 g fat
5g carb
13g protein
Some people don't like the taste and texture, but I like it and it digests well. I have been wondering about rice protein powder. I tried the Nutribiotic brand with
.7g fat
1.8g carb
12g protein

Does anyone know if it is Zone acceptable?
Thanks,
Diane

Steve, as much as I might share your view on that particular brand of Christianity, I don't think this is the place to say things like this.
