Hi, I'm new here. I have a problem with my diet so I need some advice. I'm an athlete. I train a lot but ever since I went vegan ( 3 years now ) I get tired fast and I'm tired all the time. When I was eating animal products I had enough energy to train 5-6 hours a day no problem tho symptoms of over training appeared but they didn't bother me. Now I have problem running 5k and on regular training ( boxing/kickboxing ) I gas out during sparring fast and I get even faster when throwing about 20 kicks. My pull-ups dropped from 35 per set to 10 or below. I'm thinking it's low calories but I added more and I feel no different. I'm resting from training for quite some time now but it's the same. And same goes for my brother. He has the same problem. We simply are tired all the time. I don't want to change my died back to meat but I don't want to ruin my sport career. I need to add that I live in a poor country where eating meat is cheaper. Because 2 pounds of bananas are 3$ and avg. paycheck here is 200-250$. Anyway I eat Lentils , oats, almond milk, bananas, kiwis, apples, flax seeds , chia, peanut butter, lettuce, spinach and mushrooms ( but in small amounts cause they give me nausea ), brown bread, berries, cherries, oranges, sunflower seeds, tofu, tomatoes, green tea, D3 and B12 supplement and also some other nasty stuff like mixing curcumin, pepper ginger and ashwagandha to lower inflammation and cortisol. This is my daily diet. I eat other stuff next to all the if I get the chance. Anyway, any advice is welcome. Thanks.
