Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


Hi, guys! I’m trainer Amy-Jo with ATHLEANXX
for Women. This video is for all of you vegetarians out there struggling to get protein in and
kind of curious about how to add that into your daily count, making sure you’re getting
enough. I know it can be challenging, but it’s definitely not impossible. So I know a lot of individuals who are struggling
getting half of their body weight in grams per day, so even thinking about trying to
get more than that is kind of a struggle. So really trying to get 1g per pound of body
weight a day is ideal, especially if you’re trying to add muscle, reduce body fat; which
a majority of us are. So a few of the tips that you can use are
beans. That’s one of the top sources of protein that you also have to be aware of, whenever
you’re getting these kinds of proteins in a lot of times carbs or fat come with it.
So you kind of have to take into account when you’re eating beans you’re getting some carbs
as well, but it’s a great source of protein. Involving that in soups, stir fry, tacos;
things like that. It’s a great way to up your protein. Another way to do that is through
seeds. It’s actually a little higher of a protein content than you’ll find in nuts. So pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and even
finding those two in butters – a sunflower seed butter, or pumpkin seed butter – will
allow you to up your protein and also give you a little more flavor and make you not
feel like you’re missing much with variety in your daily options. The next one is vegan protein powders. I know
there’s a lot of great ones out there that have P protein, soy protein, and other ones
in it that can help bmp up your protein source. Also, it gives you and easy, convenient way
to just get it down as a snack or before bed, or in the morning when you’ve just finished
your workout. It’s a great time to incorporate a vegan protein
powder. Another options is setain. A lot of people use that. It’s spelled S-E-T-A-I-N,
not actually like Satan the devil; setain. It’s meatless and a lot of individuals use
it and like it because it also has a very low carbohydrate amount compared to the ratio
of the protein grams in it. So that’s a great option as well. Then we
look at soy burgers, tofu burgers, things like that which also give you great options.
I think the hardest part for you vegetarians out there is probably realizing you don’t
have very many options. So realizing to get creative with spices and
sauces and things like that within using the foods that have a higher content in protein
powder – excuse me – in protein will allow you to feel like you’re not struggling with
variety day in and day out. So incorporate those items four or five times
a day if you can and really try to reach that 1g per pound of bodyweight in protein and
I definitely know you’ll see a difference. Thanks for joining me! Leave us a thumbs up,
comment below. I know other vegetarians out there would love to hear how you get your
protein up in your daily life. Thanks for joining me! We’ll see you next
time!
