Vegan Cutting Diet | Vegan Bodybuilding Meals

Hello everyone!

I want to start off by saying thank you so much for all the interest in my diet & what I ate to cut as a vegan bodybuilder 🙂

In this article, I’ll share with you what I ate for my contest prep, leading up to my two most recent bodybuilding shows. There’s a table with the macronutrient breakdown, showing the calories, protein, carbs, and fat of everything I ate, as well as the cost. If you’d like to see my comments on the topic, you can check out this video 🙂

 

Here is the detailed nutrient and cost breakdown (the last few columns are probably of interest):

As always, thank you so much for reading, and take care!
