Updated: Mar 1, 2023


Hey there! I'm Steve Pilot, a certified coach, and nutritionist.



If you're a vegan who wants to build muscle and reach your fitness goals, you've come to the right place!



So, let's dive into the world of vegan bodybuilding. It might seem daunting, but trust me, it's totally doable.


Just arm yourself with the right knowledge and resources and you'll be flexing those vegan gains in no time.


Let's talk protein. As a bodybuilder, protein is your BFF.


It's essential for building and repairing muscle, and there are plenty of plant-based sources to choose from.




But what if you're having trouble getting enough protein through food alone?


That's where supplements come in.


Soy, pea, and hemp protein powders are great options for adding a protein boost to your diet.



Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty.


Here are some tips and tricks for maximizing your results as a vegan bodybuilder:


  1. Focus on whole, nutrient-dense foods. Leafy greens, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds are all great choices.

  2. Stay hydrated! Water is essential for muscle function and recovery.

  3. Get enough rest! Sleep is crucial for muscle growth and recovery. Aim for 7-9 hours of zzz's each night.

  4. Don't skip strength training! Resistance exercises are just as important as cardio for building and maintaining muscle mass.


So there you have it, folks!


Vegan bodybuilding is totally achievable with the right approach.
And don't worry, you won't have to give up your love for plants to reach your fitness goals.

Happy lifting!
