A vegan diet can help you feel full of energy, as long as it is balanced enough to provide you with all the nutrients you need. In fact, there are even vegan athletes, following in the meat-free footsteps of Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova.
Being a vegan should not stop you being able to build lean muscle, it’s just a case of finding a source of non-dairy protein. Vegans can get protein from foods such as beans, tofu, soy, whole grains and nuts. A lack of calcium from the absence of dairy can be countered with foods such as broccoli, kale and soy.
If you need a little boost, Pro-10 sports nutrition offers a range of vegan bodybuilding and training products. The Pro-10 Vegan Bundle Pack consists of Soya Protein, BCAA powder (Branched Chain Amino-Acid), Creatine Monohydrate, L Glutamine and PureCarbs maltodextrin powder. Together these supplements will provide a great vegan protein source and that extra edge in developing both muscle development and muscle strength.
You can also get PureCarbs powder to increase energy and endurance levels while training.
