3 tips on how to increase lean muscle while on a vegan diet
EAT!!! lentils, this is going to have the highest protein to total calorie ration. what does that mean? other vegan sources may have higher protein but they’re over all calorie content from protein and carbs are much higher. and even though you are vegan, you are still very susceptible to weight can and insulin insensitivity
DRIINK!!! BCAA’s! these are the three amino acids that doing the vast majority of muscle recovery. you will heal quick and be able to perform better almost immediately. I listened to a great lecturer once at my university. One of the statements he made was that the people don’t necessarily overtrain.. they under recover. so don’t fall in to that category!
STAY AWAY FROM granola bars, white bread and pasta, coconut yogurt (20g sat fat 1 gram of protein), a lot of faux meats (these many times carry the same artificial flavors, persvatives and chemicals you were trying to get away from, so read the label!)
