    Thumbs up Vegan Weight Gain

    Hello,

    I'm Jess and I'm vegan for quite a while. I really like my new dietary style, but I also like to excercise a lot (mainly bodyweight routines and running) and unfortunately noticed a weight loss. I was more than content with my body mass and now I'm starting to get thinner.

    I was thinking about adding some protein isolates into my diet - like soy proteins for instance.

    Of course it's not like I will replace my meals with it. I just want to ADD them to my diet.

    What do you think? Is there any point in doing that? Or should I just eat more?

    Thanks for all the replies in advance,
    Jess.

    Re: Vegan Weight Gain

    It's difficult to tell because I don't know what your diet is like, other than the fact that you're a vegan. I'm a vegan too, but there are different ways of practicing veganism when it comes to the actual foods you eat.

    Being that you are very athletic, you will definitely need more calories than the average person. Depending on the extent of your athleticism, you might require 3, 4, or even 5 thousand calories per day. You will just have to try getting more calories until you find the right level. I believe macronutrients should more or less stay in balance. But perhaps put a little more emphasis on unrefined carbs, if you are not already doing so. One thing that comes to mind is sweet corn on the cob. I would give that a try. Good luck.
