Meat 👉 vegan
194 lbs > 160 lbs
.
many of you asked for us to share more about our backstory, so here it goes...
.
from 2012-2016 i served in the united states marine corps. during that time i went from 125 lbs to 194 lbs (left photo). i did all the things you do not want to do:
.
❌ dirty bulking
❌ excessive drinking
❌ bodybuilder style workouts
❌ ate loads of animal products
.
in return for my poor health habits i lacked confidence, felt lazy and out of breath, couldn’t do more than a 1/4 mile without stopping, slept horribly, felt depressed, and made no progress in the gym.
.
after the military, i committed myself to turning my life around and started implementing good habits:
.
✅ mindful eating w/o obsessing
✅ eliminated alcohol
✅ focused on heavy compound exercises
✅ went vegan
.
i felt the benefits immediately. i started gaining confidence and felt comfortable with my shirt off, i started building muscle (strongest i’ve ever been), my mood has drastically changed to feelings of happiness and purpose, and i am now running 10-20 miles with ease.
.
the really cool thing is that anyone can make this transformation. you just need to commit yourself to changing bad habits with good ones.
.
now, i am not going to sugarcoat it...it is a difficult process but once you have solidified a goal in your mind and keep reminding yourself why you need this, you becoming unstoppable. 🔥
.
what is an area of your life you want to work on and why? i’d love to hear it! 💚👇

⏩ what are your favorite vegan protein sources❓⏪⏩ comment below❕

💡 👉 today's post is all about the good old protein and let's kick this of with busting the myth that vegans aren't in any way protein deficient! the only deficiency we have is meat deficiency! but that's a good thing in my opinion.. 😂

◾science suggests that you should consume a daily minimum of 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight for man and 0.6 for women and a maximum of 1.7 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight. beans, including canned beans, are an excellent plant protein source, as are lentils and chickpeas. other examples include nuts, seeds, and soy. 💡 proteins do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs as well as to build and preserve muscle mass. foods like soy, corn, peas or especially lentils are a great source of protein and nearly all of them have the entire amino acids profile which is needed for reasons mentioned above. lentils are my favorite source because they're really versatile! furthermore, they provide other nutrients like zinc, iron, magnesium... that's a great bonus 😉

plant protein consumption may be linked to lower risk of heart disease, while the intake of animal protein can be associated with increased risk. plant protein also appears linked to lower cancer risk than animal protein.

benefits of plant protein: ▶lower risk of cancer ▶lower blood pressure
▶lower total cholesterol & heart disease
▶lower risk of inflammation
▶better preservation of muscle mass *source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/25369930/

“junk food vegan” vs. “whole foods vegan.” just like with the term “gluten-free,” just because something is labeled “vegan,” does not mean it is a healthy choice.
🥕
let me start by saying that while it is okay to have a vegan cookie or some of these other processed vegan snacks from time to time, they should not make up the foundation of a vegan diet.
🥕
when many people make the transition to a vegan diet, they often say that it’s really expensive. many people fall into trouble because they don’t know how to cook from scratch and rely on many of the processed vegan food like products, which are commonly expensive.
🥕
if you look at the research on the health benefits of a vegan diet, the research is not based on soy imitation meats or processed grain and sugar laden sweet treats. oreos, a coke, and french fries are all vegan just as sweet potato, broccoli, and blueberries are.
🥕
a true vegan diet celebrates nutrient-dense whole foods that are made up of whole fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and herbs.
🥕
what’s so great about a whole food, vegan diet is that it provides an abundance of fiber, diversity, and beneficial phytochemicals which are found exclusively in plants and are ideal for optimal health.
🥕
these bioactive phytochemicals are what give these fruits and vegetables their bright pigment and flavor, and are apart of the plants defense system.
🥕
the more phytochemicals we consume, the better our body is able to combat oxidative stress, decrease inflammation, and protect our gut.
🥕
while not everyone thrives on a strict vegan diet, one thing that can be agreed upon by all health practitioners is that you can't eat enough vegetables, and we need a lot more of them. so go crazy on the veggies my friends, no matter if you’re an omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan.
