I recently gave up all sugars and now want to go back to being vegan - i was a very bad vegan i binged on processed sweet treats, lived off them!
I'm wondering if you use warrior blend protein powder? or any other complete amino acid profile powder.
I have been using it instead of meat and fish and dairy, but have to ask whether i still need to supplement individual amino's
I have been looking at the side of the packet and can't seem to arrive at any kind of conclusion.
I want to supplement all the amino acids - all the way to 100% every day because i find that I fart far too much on most of the vegan protein foods, but i think this drink is amazing.
Warrior blend 3 x a day plus fruits, nuts and veg seems to be fine for me but i need to know that I am supplementing 100%
Does anybody have some advice please?
This is what is in Warrior Blend:

Glutamic Acid 2776mg x 3 = 8258 mg
Glycine 683mg x 3 = 2049mg

Do you think it is okay to eat 6 brazils and 1 oz almonds and 3 x warrior blend supplement every day?
If I do this, i would still be able to have a varied diet, and very low in processed food, just eating veg and fruit and some grain, some soy mince, some tofu, some beans, just not have to obsess about muscle wastage....
What do you think?
