A Comprehensive Guide To Bodybuilding On The Ketogenic Diet

    I am trying to convert the usual chicken breast with spinach salad, alternating with whey protein powder and peanut butter, into a vegan conversion.
    So far, I am doing seiten instead of chicken breast (spinach salad is vegan), and pea protein instead of the whey protein (peanut butter is vegan too!).
    The diet has 4 whole eggs in the morning, but I just used brown rice protein powder instead (Yuck!!!!!).
    First day of it. Haven't worked out yet. Even though the brown rice protein powder was ghastly going down so early in the morning, it felt good while doing cardio this morning.
    The spinach salad with seiten was weird to be eating it for breakfast (and after cardio), but I was full.
    I just did the shake with the peanut butter, and my tummy isn't use to that either.
    Just trying it out, and wanted to know if anybody has ever done it as a vegan?

    Peronsally I'm all about the carbs and to me ketogenic diets seems to be most beneficial for people who don't want to train.

    Low/no-carb diets are really, really bad for you. Carbs are an essential nutrient, especially if you're training at all. Ketosis is a state of crisis that your body goes into to survive starvation, where your body actually starts to cannibalize its own organs and tissue. It is not a healthful state, it's a desperate state. In addition to the obvious lack of essential nutrients from such a diet, there is reason to believe that such diets lead to bone loss, kidney problems, liver problems, and a host of other ailments. Don't do it.
