That's it. These are the three principles you need to abide by to set up your diet for success, grow your biceps and become awesome. It might initially look rather simple; I mean it shouldn't be too hard if there are only three steps involved, right? Well, yes and no. Over and over again I see people getting these basics completely wrong, which sabotages both muscle and strength gains and potentially even undermining your health. It ranges from either underestimating calorie needs, eating way too little fat to where it's detrimental to health , not enough protein to optimize muscle growth and repair, not nourishing their body with all the vital micronutrients, and so on and so forth.
Review the vegan food pyramid The foundation of the vegan food pyramid is greens and vegetables followed by fruit and whole grains. This is an updated version of MyPyramid —the food guide that replaced the Food Guide Pyramid in —which emphasized grains, bread, cereal, and pasta as the foundation of a good nutritional regimen. Although the vegan food pyramid serves as a guide, caloric intake and portion control are key factors for any healthy weight-loss program.
Eat greens The versatility of spinach, broccoli, Swiss chard, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, and zucchini makes dark leafy greens a wonderful addition to any meal. The high-fiber content keeps you satiated throughout the day while helping you avoid unhealthy snacking.
Other high-fiber options include fruit be mindful of the sugar content and raw tree nuts almonds , walnuts , and cashews , which are packed with protein and fiber and can help lower cholesterol. Up your protein Consumption of protein-rich food is vital in many weight-loss programs because protein fills you up faster; thus, you need less food to be satisfied.
According to Stephanie Goldfinger of vegetarian website Cooking for Luv , proteins are available in many forms, which makes them convenient to incorporate into meals because they can be eaten raw or cooked quickly. Protein powders are ideal for a grab-and-go breakfast or mid-day smoothie, while other plant-based proteins such as tempeh, beans , lentils , quinoa , and oats are versatile and can serve as the main component of a veggie burrito, salad, or stir-fry.
For instance, a tofu scramble for breakfast, soy veggie burger for lunch, and pad Thai with tofu for dinner is excessive. Instead, choose vegan cheese made with nuts, a black bean burger , or a pad Thai with vegetables and tempeh for whole-food versions of your favorite foods. Prepare healthy meals Meal planning is a vital component to ensure proper nutrition and weight loss, and, thankfully, supermarkets now sell pre-packaged vegetables that are table-ready in minutes.
Option 3: Double helpings of nut butter on wholewheat farmhouse toast sandwich fresh from the baker , stacked with banana, flax seeds and some raisins. Post Exercise — Note: You don't need to worry about plant based protein like you do animal protein.
Plant-based protein does not cause the same load on the liver, nor the inflammation. So having a protein shake is no big deal.
No need to go crazy on shakes though; your body can only use so much protein: it will get rid of amino acids it doesn't need. To buy awesome organic, high quality plant-based protein choose Nuzest. It's dairy free, gluten-free, GMO free, even soy free. There's no maltodextrin or other artificial sweeteners, no E numbers, additives or preservatives, and no flavors or colors.
Plus it contains all nine essential amino acids. Note: You can always keep it whole: Eat a handful of cashews and the fruit too.
This is actually preferable. But hey, sipping and working is often easier. Lunch — Option 2: Lentils with brown rice and lemongrass sauce. On the side: raw organic baby tomatoes, cucumber and carrot sticks, with a humous dip. Afternoon Snack: Coconut water.
Great for rehydrating. Pack of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or mixed nuts, depending on what I've had earlier in the day. If you work out in the afternoon, or you'd prefer not to have a shake in the morning, then you may want to have a protein shake here. On the side: a big salad, usually containing my go-to-green: Tuscan Italian Kale.
I call it the flu vaccine — it's that powerful. Through some sliced carrot, onion, bell peppers, cress and anything else lurking in the vegetable tray and you're good to go.
Note: I generally use garlic, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of turmeric to flavour my food. I also use vinegar on my salads. I rarely use oil; it's empty calories. Tip: If you're struggling with belly fat, cut out oil immediately.
You'll notice weight loss within 3 weeks. Option 2: Boiled broccoli or brussels sprouts, sometimes asparagus, pumpkin or butternut squash, with potatoes homegrown when in season. I'll have organic beetroot as a side, again, if in season.
I also throw in brown pasta — with herbs like parsley, thyme and oregano mixed in for flavour — once, sometimes twice, a week. Note: I pretty much always add some form of beans or lentils to my dinners. Apples are good for staving off hunger without putting a heavy load on your digestive system before bed.
A banana before bed also works well for me no pun intended. This is the peak of how big I have been with flattering lighting in this pic than accentuates definition.
I don't like to be too big because it stops me being as mobile, agile and fast. The size makes me prone to injury, especially if I'm playing football.
I generally like to be smaller than this but this picture was taken during a spell of moderate to heavy weight training combined with Wing Chun training 4 times a week. They double or triple protein intake and lower carbs to a minimum. What ends up happening is poor sleep, fatigue, brain fog and an overworked liver. Your body is a carbohydrate burning machine. You are designed to eat carbs and lots of them, just not the processed, factory-made types that are engineered to trick your carb receptors into thinking its real food.
Carbohydrate is sugar. Your body is fueled by it.
Your brain weighs lbs and runs exclusively on the stuff. Keep up your whole food carb intake. You can't train and work without it. People think carbs will make them fat. This is a myth. It takes a lot of energy for the body to store carbohydrate as fat; it's simply not its preference to do that. Since you're very active with your training, carbs will not be an issue.
If you're hungry, carb up! If you want to learn more, start learning how the human body really works in terms of nutrient absorption and digestion, and how different foods affect the body. And learn to read scientific studies; how to differentiate a reliable study from a flawed or bias one, or one with corporate interest.
