Do you mean dumbells? Gym equipments you can get them mostly at the sports shops like World of Sports, Royal Sportings House or Sportslink. :lol:

Weight bars

Maybe you can try to buy those long bars, you can add on more weight of you want. The bar can train your shoulders for lunches. :P

Thanks joop, i already found that things, yeah it called dumbells in english (i ask the shop keeper already) and bought it at ALBL shop in chinatown. The trainer in my fitness center tell me 2 eat more food that contain protein. But i tell him, that if I eat so much food in one day, then soon my body weight will become fat :D . Then he continue 2 say that if u eat & workout/training then u won't become fat instead build up ur muscle. It true or not huh? By the way thanks again joop.

Protein sources

Postby jaslynk » Sat, 11 Mar 2006 7:26 pm

You can make it into 5 meals a day if you find it too hard to eat so much food in e time. Protein doesn't contain fats, only red meats and fried food does.

Dietary Sources

Most foods contain at least some protein. Good sources of protein for vegetarians include nuts and seeds, pulses, soya products (tofu, soya milk and textured soya protein such as soya mince), cereals (wheat, oats, and rice), free-range eggs and some dairy products (milk, cheese and yoghurt).

Different foods contain different proteins, each with their own unique amino acid composition. The proportions of essential amino acids in foods may differ from the proportions needed by the body to make proteins. The proportion of each of the essential amino acids in foods containing protein determines the quality of that protein. Dietary proteins with all the essential amino acids in the proportions required by the body are said to be a high quality protein. If the protein is low in one or more of the essential amino acids the protein is of a lower quality. The amino acid that is in shortest supply is called the limiting amino acid.

Protein quality is usually defined according to the amino acid pattern of egg protein, which is regarded as the ideal. As such, it is not surprising that animal proteins, such as meat, milk and cheese tend to be of a higher protein quality than plant proteins. This is why plant proteins are sometimes referred to as low quality proteins. Many plant proteins are low in one of the essential amino acids. For instance, grains tend to be short of lysine whilst pulses are short of methionine. This does not mean that vegetarians or vegans go short on essential amino acids. Combining plant proteins, such as a grain with a pulse, leads to a high quality protein which is just as good, and in some cases better, than protein from animal foods. Soya is a high quality protein on its own which can be regarded as equal to meat protein.

The limiting amino acid tends to be different in different proteins. This means when two different foods are combined, the amino acids in one protein can compensate for the one lacking in the other. This is known as protein complementing. Vegetarians and vegans eating a well-balanced diet based on grains, pulses, seeds, nuts and vegetables will be consuming a mixture of proteins that complement one another naturally without requiring any planning. Beans on toast, cheese or peanut butter sandwich, muesli with milk (soya or cow's), and rice with peas or beans are all common examples of protein complementing.

Previously, it has been thought that protein complementing needed to occur within a single meal. However, it is now known that this is not necessary as the body keeps a short-term store of the essential amino acids. A well-balanced vegetarian or vegan will easily supply all the protein and essential amino acids needed by the body.
:P
