Publisher's Summary

Would you like to improve your athletic performance? Do you want to build muscular mass? Just keep reading to find out more!

At times, it’s hard to wrap our protein-obsessed heads around the idea that someone can be meat-free and muscled up.

Athletes elect to follow vegetarian diets for health, environmental, ethical, philosophical, religious/spiritual, and esthetic reasons, which can include the dislike of meat. Although vegetarian diets are well-accepted in the public health arena, some coaches and professionals express concern that vegetarian athletes may not receive the proper nutrition required for optimal training and performance.

To ensure optimal performance, vegetarian athletes need to consume adequate energy and select foods rich in the “red flag” nutrients, which either are found less abundantly in vegetarian foods or are less well absorbed from plant compared to animal sources.

Here it is what you will find:

  • Which are the best tips athletic performance
  • How to build your muscle mass with vegan food
  • Which are the best types of vegan food for an athlete
  • A 4-weeks meal plan
  • And much more!

Although research strongly suggests that a plant-based diet may offer many health benefits to athletes and nonathletes alike, there is currently little evidence that vegetarian diets per se are better than omnivorous diets for improving athletic training and performance.
