Description

Warriors Fight for Increased Performance With Vegan Diets Do you need more energy during your workouts, training, and competitions? Are you looking to find a way to increase your recovery time after extreme exertion? Have you ever wondered what you might have in common with some of the world's best athletes? What do they do differently than you do? Why do they seem to keep going and excelling consistently time after time? Where does their stamina come from? Did you know that some of the most famous fighters of all time, Roman Gladiators, ate a plant-based diet? Think about the strength required to fight off wild animals in a closed arena! Are you a vegetarian who is getting ready to make the switch to full vegan? Do you still eat a diet that is full of meat and animal products? Did you know that many people mistakenly believe that vegans are deficient in protein? Did you know that the US RDI of protein can be obtained by a vegan who would eat the following foods in one day: 1 cup soy milk, 1 cup oatmeal, 1 bagel, 2 slices whole grain bread, 2 TBSP peanut butter, 1 cup vegan baked beans, 2 TBSP almonds, 1 cup brown rice, 5 ounces tofu, and 1 cup of broccoli? Doesn't that sound delicious? What is the common thread that tie all of these questions above together? Making the change to a vegan diet! Why should you do this if you are an aspiring athlete? There are plenty of reasons - including how healthy you will be and feel! High-performance athletes need to draw on reserves of energy, vitamins and minerals, and other essential nutrients that are needed in larger amounts than the average person would require. And guess what? You can get everything that you need from a vegan diet! In 2008, it was reported that there was 0.5% of the population in the United States who followed a vegan diet. By 2014, this number had jumped to 5% of the population being either completely vegan or vegetarians in the process of making the switch to a vegan diet. Many vegans start off on a vegetarian diet and then slowly omit any animal products from their diet and their lives. Veganism is gaining popularity for a variety of reasons, including better overall health, concern for the environment, and the ethical considerations of the animal rights movement. If you are an athlete who is looking to shine both on and off the field of your choice, consider becoming a vegan! Have other competitors asking what your secret is!
