    I went from my eternal resting state of 170 to over 200 on a veggie diet - but I doubt there was any muscle in that, I just started living at an all-you-can-eat veg buffet (literally).

    Anyway, great job on the lifting progress, keep up your whey shakes and nuts intake, and for Krishna's sake get some leafiness and color in your diet.

    As for the ammonia thing, I'll repeat urea FTW.

    Heed this warning, losing weight over 30 sucks and sucks exponentially more every year after that.

    QFT: I started trying to lose weight in earnest in March. I'm 39 and 5'11" and weighed 208lbs = paunchy bastard. Eight months later, after training four times a week and dropping 500 calories a day, I weigh 196.5. Everything hurts and I'm fucking exhausted.

    Sweat is one of the two main ways the body rids itself of ammonia. The body needs to excrete more ammonia when its carbohydrate stores are depleted.

    Agreed, it took me six months to reach my current weight of 230 from 345 at the ripe old age of 37, about to turn 38 doing weights 3x a week and cardio 5x a week. My goal is 220.

    I will agree with the age factor, but you can tinker with your metabolism. It won't be the same as when you are in your late teens or early 20s, but you can tweek it.

    The reason I gained weight when a vegetarian was simple:

    it became too easy to substitue rice, soy, pasta or potato for a main course.

    Starch and carb replace protein.


    edit:

    and by "soy" I mean processed tofu foodstuffs.

    You lost 115 pounds in 6 months? That's actually very impressive. In fact so impressive I don't believe you. Did you mean 245 to 230?

    Why the vegan hate? Mac Danzig made out with your wife or something?

    And it's easy to gain weight on a vegan or veggy diet. Many years ago my brother and roomy decided to be spiritually advanced or something (eating too much acid in the late 60s had something to do with this) and be vegetarian. Problem was they lived by a cheap Honolulu bakery and filled up on garbage* and both quickly got fatter (something to do with the late 60s culture of smoking lots of pot with the resulting 'munchies' - and in their case, only exercising when the surf was good).

    If you're poor and starving, do yourself a favor and drop the veg thing until you can afford proper food. You need all the high quality protein you can get when your not getting enough to eat.
