Muscle-Building Workout and Diet

People who work out, lift weights and want
to build muscle and stay lean – eat a lot of protein. Unfortunately, too much animal protein isn’t
good for you. Of course, vegans will argue that ALL animal
protein is bad for you. I don’t agree with that. However, I do agree that most animal protein
these days isn’t good because of how it’s raised. Additionally, too much animal protein can
become toxic to the body, if your goal is also longevity. So today, I’m going to speak about vegan
protein powders. This way, you can still eat that extra protein
for building muscle and staying lean, but it doesn’t have to be from animal sources. Luckily, these days, we have access to some
really great vegan protein powders that are probably just as good as the animal sources. They are complete proteins with all the amino
acids. My Personal Protein Intake Now, before I start, let me give you a little
background about my own protein consumption. I have about 1 gram of protein per pound of
body weight. I weigh about 200 lbs and thus, I average
about 200 grams daily. Some days less and some days more. I did a video about protein cycling and building
more muscle – I’ll give you that link at the end of this video. My main sources of protein are from
Wild caught salmon Pasture raised bison
Pasture raised whole eggs Whey protein isolate (25 grams on workout
days) Vegan protein powders Yes, you’ll see no chicken, turkey or shellfish. Chicken these days is fake and shellfish are
bottom feeders. Vegan Protein Powders
Now, there are lots of different vegan protein powders, some of the more popular ones are:
Soy – I’m not a fan of soy. It does tend to lower thyroid levels and increase
estrogen. IF you want to use it, make sure it’s Non-GMO
and use in small amounts. Hemp – this is a great food source. It has protein, fat, carbs and lots of fiber. I wouldn’t use it by itself because it can
be a bit “earthy” if you know what I mean. I’d do a mixture of it with other vegan
powders. Rice – this is easy to digest, has all the
amino acids, almost no carbs or fats and has no sugar. This is one of my favorites. Pea – this is very popular, especially in
protein bars and so forth. It creates a thicker consistency than other
powders. It’s all protein with just 1 gram of fat
and carbs, no sugar. BUT, it can cause inflammation. So again, you want to use a lower dose and
mix it with other vegan powders. Alfalfa Greens – it’s similar to hemp, but
not as good and it’s very “earthy” in taste. So, a little goes a long way. It’s also very hard to mix. For me, I have my own powder mixed with my
specifications, which you can do the same. I typically do 50% – Rice
25% – Hemp 25% – Pea However, this will NOT mix as easily as whey
protein. You can’t just add water to a shaker. You’ll have to use a blender. I actually mix all of this into a protein
cookie that I make. Which consists of other vegan ingredients
(oats, puffed millet, coconut and some nuts). A recipe I can give you if you’d like, just
comment below if you’re interested. At the end of the day, you’ll need to see
what works for you and your taste buds. You can buy these vegan powders pre-made by
many companies. BUT, they typically do throw in lots of other
junk, sugars and so forth. AND, it’ll cost you more. However, you can now make your own formula,
at half the price without any junk in their. I’ve made a video about how I make my custom
proteins and there’s a link to that video below, in the description area. Along with a couple other important links. So whether you’re a vegan or you simply
want to reduce some of your animal protein, now you can with these top quality vegan protein
