    Default Waist width

    I've been doing more training then usual and have noticed my waist and hip measurements have increased. I'm guessing this is because I've been focussing on back muscles to help improve my posture. I'm pretty sure that it's not my diet. I'm vegan which pretty much eliminates 90% of bad foods (probably not 90% but you get the point).

    I want to keep a slim waist and am wanting to shred but I just can't seem to keep off the inches on my mid area. Any tips would be awesome.

    Quantity equates to fat gains not specifically bad food.
    What exercises are you doing to make you think it's affecting your waist size?

    Avoid core exercises.

    I've also heard wearing a lifting belt for every gym session will stop it growing. Kind of like a corset for men.

    Your waist isn't getting bigger because of lifting. It's fat. The waist muscles have very little capacity for growth and any strength gains are going to stop you getting a fucked back like 50% of the population.

    What my concern is with the food side is generally I don't eat enough due to vegan diet. I eat 2 bananas with macadamia milk in a smoothy in the morning. I have some fruit during the day. A salad or coconut curry at lunch and generally I have a light dinner like avocado and vermachilli with a couple.of herbs.

    I've been focussing on a lot of things like seated row to build up muscle in the back and shoulders as I have rounded shoulders and we are doing a lot of core based exercise at school. I have low core strength so it is an area I'm focussing
    on.

    Wouldn't avoiding core exercises break heomostasis and cause posture issues?

    I have a low fat Diet. I'm worried there may be an issue with it but I'll go make a thread in nutrition about it.

    Make me wonder how you acheive any gains without sufficient protein.
    I think your a little paranoid TBH.

    From the daily intake that you listed, I think it's probably malnutrition. You basically described the body of an Ethiopian kid. It's quite difficult to maintain a healthy diet as a vegan. That's where you need to be looking.

    I do use prana protien powder. But I haven't.made serious gains. Also a vegan diet does have protien. It's a myth that it doesn't. I looked at what I'm eating.and there is a little.more fat then I thought. But not too much and majority is good fats.

    See I've been bruising too and stuff. I get that could be an issue. Especially since my limbs and chest are losing fat but my stomach is definately bloating. I've even been considering moving away from veganism over it.

    because you eat in a day what most people would consider a snack. so if you really think your getting fat maybe you have some issues to deal with
