  1. Vegan newbie
I wanted to introduce myself. I just started up a vegan diet, and I was looking for a place where I can get ideas for recipes and other things related to the diet.

This is my second week doing the diet. Things are going ok, but I do feel flatter. It is sort of hard to explain. I am shakier going into my workouts, but the strength is still there. In fact, I was really strong today doing my deadlifts.

The other issue I am having is a lot of gas and some intestinal issues with all the beans and higher protein vegan food I am eating. I bumped by protein up to 250g per day, with about 530g carbs and 75g fat. This put my closer to my previous diet. The week prior I went 170g of protein and it was pretty rough lifting.

Anyways, I am sure I will need help navigating all of this. I am a competitive powerlifter, so I am hoping I can continue to gain strength while getting healthier.
