How Can Vegans Get High Protein Foods To Build Muscle?
I am a vegetarian so I don't eat eggs or fish but I do eat milk products and drink milk.
My question is
- Can a vegetarian be built?
Thanks for the question.
Vegetarians can indeed build well muscled, and defined bodies. Listen, your body doesn't really distinguish between what kinds of proteins it prefers.
How can vegans get protein containing no red meat, eggs, or fish? You can get plenty of protein from other sources such as:
Peanuts - 1 oz serving contains 90 calories and 4 grams of protein;
These are just a sample of what's out there in terms of high protein, vegetarian foods. There are plenty of vegetarian cook books out there with high protein recipes. Check this site out:
Most of these recipes are vegetarian with a high protein count. It’s right down your alley.
Brian, speaking from a physiological point, we’re not divided into groups of meat and non meat eaters. The human body needs protein to maintain and grow and regardless of whether or not you’re a vegetarian, our protein requirements will be the same. 20 grams of protein is going to be 20 grams of protein, no matter where you get it from.
If your looking to build muscle mass, I suggest you get anywhere from .8 to 1.2 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Start off with about .8 grams of protein and adjust your intake based on your improvements. For example, if you weight 140 pounds, try and get about 115 grams of protein in your body each and every day.
I hope this helps,
