I know… you are not alone.
In fact, I was like that. When I transitioned to a plant based diet a couple of years ago, I had lots of doubts, concerns and limiting beliefs. I am training really heavy and hard for bodybuilding, and all these questions came to my mind. “How can I support my muscles?” , “Will I get everything I need on a plant based diet?”, “What do I have to eat now?”, “What can I eat to replace … ? “, “Will I be able to grow muscles on plants?” and the list goes on.
I was always told that we need lots of animal products, especially egg whites and meat, in order to grow muscles (which is far from the truth..). I had no clue of how I can build muscles and improve my physique on a plant based diet. We all know that nutrition is a HUGE part of bodybuilding. In that moment, I realized that I was focusing on what I am going to eliminate from my diet rather than what I am going to add and eat. I got up and decided that I am going to make it happen. This is just the beginning. I am going to figure out how to build muscles on a plant based diet and live a healthier lifestyle. I will devote my life to helping others do the same!
Lots of trial and error. Endless hours of learning, testing, reading and coaching. Gaining experience and knowledge. I have learned how to eat and make healthy, plant based, muscle-building meals that promotes muscle mass gains, better recovery and great athletic performance.
