    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?
