12 Sexiest Vegan Bodybuilders And Their Favorite Meals Destroy All Stereotypes About Getting Lean

sexiest-vegan-bodybuilders[1]

Myth: a plant-based diet lacks the protein to build large muscles.
And to that, I would add that most people also think it contains too many carbs for a person to get lean – a common misconception due to a lack of proper knowledge. Carbs are our body’s primary fuel source. Our brain runs exclusively on carbohydrate. When our bodies lack sufficient carbohydrate our bodies deaminate, or in other words, our bodies remove the amino group so that it can use the protein as an energy source, rather than as protein. This is not a desirable scenario. We want the proteins we consume to be used for tissue repair and our overall metabolic needs, not to run our brain.

With the ever-growing popularity of protein shakes and half-pound burgers, there’s no denying that our culture is obsessed with eating protein. So it should come as no surprise that vegans and vegetarians are constantly questioned about going meat-free—despite the fact that neither diet by definition is lacking in the muscle building nutrient. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, you know exactly what we’re talking about—and you’re tired of getting asked questions about the sources and quantity of your protein intake.

Who doesn’t love the idea of heading into the kitchen and using one quick machine to get in a variety of nutrients, all while you’re still half asleep and have no idea what you’re even going to wear for work? This is the beauty of the blender, and if you’re looking for a way to get in a variety of nutrients into one meal, a jam-packed smoothie is where it’s at! Smoothies are all the rage right now, but not all of them are as healthy as they have the potential to be. Many are packed with sugar, containing over an entire day’s worth. Others are lacking in fiber, and many are lacking in protein.

10 Simple Ways to Eat at Least 10 Grams of Protein at Each Meal Without Meat

Getting enough protein during meal time is really no biggie, so relax if you’ve decided to push meat aside and make way for plant-based options—good choice! Eliminating meat also reduces the risk of a number of health issues but it doesn’t reduce your ability to enjoy a meal. In fact, making meals delicious without meat is really so simple and satisfying. Protein concerns, however, are still one of the main reasons that people include meat on their plates. Some common myths are that plants can’t supply enough protein or the right types, but that’s really not true. It’s not shameful to say you enjoy eating meat, but know that it isn’t required by the human body to supply enough protein. In fact, you can actually overdose on animal protein, while plants supply beneficial amino acids the body uses without causing a harmful imbalance to occur.

In case you didn’t know, 2016 is The Year of the Pulse. What’s a pulse? All pulses are legumes, but not all legumes are actually pulses. Pulses include all lentils, dry beans, dry peas, and chickpeas. Pulses are high in protein, low in fat, and low in cholesterol. It just doesn’t get any better than that. If you’re an athlete seeking protein-packed, whole foods based recipes or if looking to include more plant-based meals in your diet, then pulses belong on your plate. It’s easy to include pulses in every meal of the day. For breakfast, you can try this  Mexican-Spiced Tofu Scramble. With both black beans and tofu, it’s a protein-packed double whammy. This Smashed White Bean Avocado and Basil Sandwich  is an easy, filling, and affordable lunch. For a no-fuss dinner, try this Spinach and Beans Chipotle Casserole or this Cauliflower and Lentils With Dill Tahini. And yes, you can have pulses for dessert, too — like these Chocolate Covered Black Bean Brownie Cake Pops.
