Trying to reduce animal protein intake but maintain the protein without an influx of carbs. Anyone else have experience with this? I’m thinking vegan protein shakes are my only options. Any other ideas?

Lentils. Chickpeas. Beans. And actually contrast to popular belief u don’t need as much protein as previously thought. Watch game changers. When thinking carbs try sweet potatoes, brown rice, brown bread. These are all pretty good carb sources.

Beans are a great source of protein but high in carbs. Trying to limit carbs. Going for 40-40-20 split of fat-protein-carb

Greek yogurt? Not sure if it counts as animal protein

Greek yogurt is delicious! But also doesn’t sit well with my body.. neither does dairy (including cheese 😩). And I consider it as animal protein byproduct :(

Thank you AC1! You are absolutely right! My only issue is my carb allowance needs to hover around the 60g marker. 13g is already above 20% of my daily allowance but only giving me 8g of protein :( Nothing against beans! In fact, I LOVE chickpeas.. and lentils. Just trying to trim the fat and lay-off the water weight (carbs).

Black beans.

Lentils, green peas, nut butters, nuts, almond milk, chickpeas, vegan meat (some options are really good), and tofu (I’m not sure of this one).

Thank you for the quick responses guys! Unfortunately, the recommendations are all fairly high in carbs. Seems like vegan protein is the only way to go. Darn.

Lupin beans and lupin flour — high protein, low carb.

I’m going to check this out! Thank you :)

Seitan is your answer. Don’t believe the myths about gluten. Unless you have celiac disease

Thank you D2! Forgot about seitan! I remember it not being a complete protein.. so I’ll have to see where I can supplement for the amino acids lacking in seitan.

One important consideration — while black beans or lentils appear to be high in carbs, they’re high in fiber which is a carb that isn’t digestible. So black beans might have 20g of carbs but 7g of fiber, meaning their net carb value is only 13g which isn’t all that much. Most people forget to focus on the net carb not the all-up carb value.

Bean sprouts??

Tempeh. Naturally fermented always helps me with digestion. Why the carb avoidance? Are you cutting for a show or something?

Truly appreciate the feedback. I’m excited to give this a go.

Can also add spirulina (sp?) and PBfit

I lift. And even as a female - getting in 125 g of protein a day on a vegan diet f’s up my macros and calories. I have to rely on shakes and I still eat egg whites.

There are amazing vegan bodybuilders and I’m not saying it can’t be done - it just isn’t practical for me
