Hi Jeff,

First, thanks for the great answers to my questions on green algae.

I would like to hear your advice related to sports nutrition. You have written
much on optimizing nutrition while minimizing caloric density yet I would like
to know what you recommend for individuals, like myself, who need to eat a
higher energy diet in order to maintain and/or increase lean body mass. In
short, I vigorously exercise every day, including three days a week of brief,
but heavy, resistance training. I'm totally vegan, have low body fat, and
currently eating a diet close to the recommendations of Dr. Fuhrman. In fact,
I'm currently reading Dr. Fuhrman's latest books and am surprised that he
seems to favor a higher intake of fats (calories) from avocado, nuts and seeds
for athletes, as opposed to increasing calories from (whole) grains. So my
question is assuming I'm satisfying my nutrient needs by eating enough
nutrient dense (raw and cooked) vegetables, fruits, and legumes, do you think
it's healthier to increase energy by consuming more raw nuts and seeds or
increasing whole cooked grains (or seeds) like oats, amaranth, and millet? I
would like to continue to keep my body fat low.
