Great pictures.

I like spaghetti And many other like pasta.. and we have some BG things like these- kus-kus, yufka(yufka comes from Turkey may be )
Spaghetti, yes, they're great! But they must not be too thin.

It has nothing to do with kuskus but you have reminded me aloe vera. I remember as when I have worked in the supermarket as a student's part time job there is a lot of this product. Is there anyone who eat it? I've never tried it so far.

Maybe Red Hot Chilli Peppers?

Just read coras fact post. And its full of incorrect information. Meat IS protein. All meat basically consists of is protein. And meat is only "fatty" if you choose to cook it with oils for example. Chickenfilet for example is 60% protein and 29% water and 1% fat.

Props for vegetarians. But for such a diet to work you'll need supplements so your body gets what it needs. Proteinpowder for example.

Another argument against it is the really low calorieintake each day. For the body to work it needs fuel (calories). Which is only possible with consumtion of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Eating only vegetables causes a lack of calories in your body which can result of one of your organs collapsing one day. Not to mention you will drop weight like crazy, which also isn't healthy.

Your body needs !for example! 1800calories a day just to make your body function. Which means you can eat 1800 calories and NOTHING will happen all of these calories will be used to the body during the day. You'll need additional calories for your muscles, brain etc.

As its hard to acheive this on a vegetarian diet i think its unhealthy. But like i said, there is supplements for this problem

But I hope by "vegetables" you don't understand only those watery ones-cucumber, cabbage, tomatoes, for example There are many many other that provide everything you need: potatoes, beans, wheat(bread), rice, nuts, peas, lentils, seeds (sunflower, pumpkin).... there are so many. And animal protein is not the only existing protein

As its hard to acheive this on a vegetarian diet i think its unhealthy.
And especially a vegetarian diet is "full of" protein and fats(dairy products, eggs) depending on what you eat of course. And especially the discussed above soy products.

You'll need additional calories for your muscles, brain etc
I don't intend to become a bodybuilder, but I find my muscles and brain perfectly ok And, by the way, I have read about bodybuilders vegetarians, who do not eat meat but are able to gain muscle mass.

By your post I assume you have tried to be on a vegetarian diet?

And of course corn and corn flour, I missed to mention in the several previous posts

kachamak-(corn flour- boiled and with or without cheese). I have seen it somewhere in photos by Ukrainans, and it is popular in Romania also, I think:
yummy

Was thinking more out of a vegan diet.

And this has nothing to do with bodybuilding, but yes. They are able to grow without consuming meat. But like i said in my previous post there are nutrition supplements, which in bodybuilding is pretty much mandatory.

Potatoes and bread i agree on. But the rest of the list are pretty low on energy. You would need to eat an extreme amount of seeds (f.e) to satisfy your body. But of course nobodies metabolism is the same. Im not saying its impossible to take care of the body on a vegetarian/vegan diet. But it is hard. I wouldn't have the time.

By your post I assume you have tried to be on a vegetarian diet?

No i have not. But i dont need to try it to know most people would not eat enough calories in one. But if you do congrats

Of course, but nobody says that one must eat only one type of food And especially sunflower seeds are not low in energy at all, since oil is made of them. They are small in size, but try to smash one with your fingers between two sheets of paper. What it leaves on the paper is mostly vegetable fat. And they contain a lot of protein

But like i said in my previous post there are nutrition supplements, which in bodybuilding is pretty much mandatory.
Yes, for professional sportsmen, probably.

Haha, only from books again From the more exotic tropical fruit I've met face in face only avocado (quite liked it), coconuts, papaya (didn't like it) and may this is all I think Except oranges, bananas, which are common, of course

Uhhhh, no Well, may be yes- roasted apples Or boiled pumpkin.. only as desserts. Oh, and fried banana once, in a Chinese restaurant, but it was with eggs, and it wasn't a dessert and I will never make the same mistake again.

I don't care for mangoes, but they're not uncommon here, even though they don't grow here.

Ahuacatl is exotic in Bulgaria? They're native to Mexico, so we get plenty of them out of California and Mexico. I've only eaten them in Guacamole and hated it, so I've never felt like trying one by it's self.
