Muay Thai & Weight Gain

Postby rahimj_27 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 8:19 am

I'm a recent vegan (1 month) and was a vegeterain 2 months before that!
I worked out before the transition, but always stuggled to gain weight!
Now that I'm a vegan, I've lost about 5 lbs (i'm now 130Lbs)!

I am going to start working out again as well as start Muay Thai soon!

I am planning my diet meanwhile and I was donering the following:
I used to use Whey Concentrate in morning 1st thing and at night last thing!
I used to use Whey Isolate post-workout!

Well, now I found a HEMP Protein Shake to replace it as a concentrate, but what can I use to replace the Isolate protein shake in order to GAIN weight!

Also, what should my FAT/CARB/PROTEIN Ratio?

This is what I have right now!
3000 Calories - FAT-85G (25%) - CARB-350G (45%) - PROT-225G (30%)

Is that ratio good to gain weight?
Is that too much Fat?

What I really want is to get bigger and still be able to be atheltic enough to do Muay Thai!

Once you start MT you should be prepared to eat more.

I don't like to get crazy with calories, but I have heard that MT burns somewhere in the neighborhood of 1000cal/hr. This could be wrong, but in any case having some (albiet limited) experience with it, you will lose weight fairly quickly (though i'm 90+ kg and had weight to burn).

How does your body respond to intense physical activity? Do you have any experience with any MA previous to MT?

Re: isolate replacer, I wouldn't worry about that. Just eat lots of whole foods and you should be ok. Check out the other parts of this forum for suggestions. Now, this is easier said than done, and if you go strong with MT you'll have to eat a good deal more than you're used to, but you should rely on food rather than a supplement to help you reach your goals.
