Tony Horton's new book, Bring It, discusses diet. Around page 220 or so, he addresses what should be removed from your diet. He addresses the subjects sugar, gluten, animal products, etc. and suggests alternatives. You might be able to get some ideas from this source. I have done P90X several times and have not found a Vegan diet to be an issue. You might also try the Brendan Brazier Thrive Books.

I would say completely IGNORE ALL the nutrition info, just do the exercise part. Obviously any nutrition recommendations that include animal foods is NOT good...and 50% of ANY kind of protein is NOT good, so just do what u do, eat more volume if needed, but I say recycle that booklet, don't waste a second opening & reading ANY of it.
Avoid analogues, they are hard to digest & not healthy. they are to be transition food. They also could slow weight loss. Stick w/whole plant foods.
Good point, tho, there needs to be a vegan version!
Try the book Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness if you are wondering about Nutrition. It is extremely important. Their numbers seem a bit off. Look at Cheeke's. He's also on facebook under the title of the book.
Another gadget. [Shakes head and walks away muttering 'what ever happened to a good old ..... to the wall workout?']
Wow great idea! Have been a vegan since 1980 and for most of that time had to gorge to keep a steady weight. The past six years are different and have been stuck at 200 pounds and can't seem to lose ten or twenty. Yes lack of exercise has changed my life. Even so, maybe I could turn those extra 25 pounds to muscle!
Still, this power work out stuff I am not so sure about. Tai Chi seems like a better idea to me.
Even so I sure would like to be stronger. All those exercise machines cluttering the house or rotting in the yard don't do much for me.
Good luck with your program and if you do well, maybe I will tag along!
hopefully i can help some of you out a bit on both of the topics here. for the chin ups without a bar, 10 years ago i invented just a device called the Jungle Gym XT, it simply goes over the top of any door and hangs off of it and allow you to do assisted or un-assisted chin ups.
Secondly the how to eat as a vegan for strength and conditioning...this is all we do at the monkey bar gym...we're the ONLY gyms in the world who promote a plant based diet and we have tons of menus and articles on how to eat plant based for fitness and athletic performance. i'm happy to help people in both of these points if i can help out at all:)
sincerely, jon hinds
