Re: Vegan Paleo

Not very many posts about vegan and paleo

ANd that doesn't include the links in those threads to various other sources.

Renee wasn't referring to this topic when she said there hasn't been good ino since may 2009, she meant all topics. I"ve only been here for about 2.5 years and I've seen about every thread repeat about a dozen times. I tired going into the older posts, but it just makes me sad; Rip and Glenn and Everett discussing bio mechanics of squats and trap bar deadlifts, Robb WOlf discussing nutrition, Coach chiming in every so often. Hell you even have pre-kb, pre-yoga Rant.

I'm not sure if you read through the threads you posted, but none of them really describe anyone's experience with the diet or offer any real information about vegan-paleo. There is one thread on paleo-vegetarianism but includes eggs and milk and even still is speaking hypothetically, one on eating raw, another on raw veganism.

I started this thread simply seeking others who had attempted what it is I currently am. As I mentioned previously, I was hoping to find aid in creative meals and such.

I'm sorry you are so very bored with the forum but it seems to me like some of your antagonistic criticism might contribute to the lack of informative posts.

Re: Vegan Paleo

I spent like 3 mintues doing a search. I really don't care if people start new threads, but I prefer necroposting.

I refer all vegans and vegatarians to Mike Mahler. I don't know of a single better source or example of vegan training and nutrition. I am not, nor likely ever be, a vegan or vegatarian, nor am I interested in it from a theoretical standpoint, therefore I don't discuss it much. I try not to discuss things outside of my baliwick.

Re: Vegan Paleo

Might get some ideas here: http://vegetarianbodybuilder.com/index2.html

Disclaimer: I knew of this guy years ago from another bodybuilding site. I have no idea what he's eating, but this topic reminded me of him.

(safe, as far as I know; I haven't figured out the acronyms here yet)

Re: Vegan Paleo

WFS is Work Family Safe. And it's an intialization, not an acronym.

Re: Vegan Paleo

Jennifer,

When I started crossfitting, I was vegan. I quickly learned that, for me, a vegan diet could not support my goals of getting stronger. Especially if you do it without use of soy which has been proven to mess with your hormone levels (google it). That being said, if your performance is satisfying to you, and you aren't eating tons of soy to make up for lack of calories and protein, have at it. But i would really encourage you to be open to new ideas, because at some point your progress is going to stall. Everyone's does at some point for some reason or another. Mine stalls when I don't sleep or am overtrained or when I'm not eating enough vegetables. But the amount of work you can do and strength you can gain on a well varied whole foods vegan diet may be just fine for what you're looking for. Crossfit can be effective for everyone, but the level of effectiveness is dependent on the type of diet you choose to follow.

Yes, everyone has an agenda - Lierre Keith and Mark Sisson write for a reason just as Dean Ornish writes and the FDA sets guidelines for a reason. You have to pick the agenda that works best with your belief system and your goals.
