The Vegan Bodybuilder
Vegan bodybuilder Frank Medrano joins a growing number of athletes whose peak physical performance is powered only by plants (Vegan Diet Meal Plan) . Because the public has seen the cruelty of animal farming. And now we’re armed with the knowledge that we can live healthy lives without exploiting animals for food. So more and more people are making the choice to stop consuming animal protein and products.
And the list of title-winning, record-holding vegan athletes grows every year. So you can not only survive, but thrive on a plant-based diet like our clients at Fresh n’ Lean. At the same time, government health experts worldwide agree with the scientific evidence showing that a vegan diet is possible for people of any age.
The Health Benefits
Health benefits include less risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack, stroke, and several types of cancer. The American Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, the U.S.’s foremost authority on diet and nutrition, recognized that humans have no biological need for animals products, stating:
It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
Well-planned vegetarian diets are good for people in all stages of life. So whether you’re an infant, an adult, pregnant, or an athlete, the vegan lifestyle could work for you! Thus we need to recognize that animals value their lives and want to live. And our values have to be reflected in the choices we make. And every day, we live our values through our food choices.
So if we value kindness over violence–compassion over causing harm–then veganism is an expression of our values. If we can live healthy lives without hurting others, why wouldn’t we?
