    Default Vegetarians and protein

    Hi,
    As a veggie myself are there any other veggies/vegans in here, how do you get enough protein to gain muscle?

    I'm about 80kg so that means I need almost 180g a day 😳 if you go by so these calculators/recommendations

    Thanks

    They are not "so called" recommendations, they came about from scientific study.

    Ive read that often vegos/vegans actually need More than the typically required amount due to a lower bioavailability of the proteins. You also need to ensure a good variety of protein from different sources is consumed also to help cover all the amino acid bases.

    80kg and 180gm is probably a good place to start to be honest.

    Being vego, you still consume Eggs yes? They are your best friend. Cant beat them for a protein source in the vegetarian world. Also there are plenty of vego/vegan protein supps on the market now too, not sure just how complete they are, but they are there.

    Unfortunately I don't like eggs, I've never liked them even when I was a meat eater.

    The only time I can eat them is when they are baked in something like a cake or quiche etc etc

    I've got some pea protein powder, looks like I'll have to have at least 2 of them a day

    So have one a day. And learn to like eggs mate. Find a way. Omelettes, hard boiled covered in salt, fried with a heap of spices poured on. Try em all!

    Take the lactose pills and chug, chug, chug.

    Or eat quiches like a madman.

    Is bacon a vegetable?

    If you're concerned about getting all your necessary amino acids, do some research into complementary protein sources. This can mean eating your beans or lentils with rice to cover all the amino acids. But yes, bioavailability of proteins from vegetable sources are lower than animal sources. But it can be done.

    Yes it can be done by eating a variety.

    Beef
    Chicken
    Pork
    Lamb
    Fish
    Turkey
    Roo
    Venison
    Buffalo

    Easy to obtain aminos.
