Workouts As A Vegetarian
Hey Girls! I have a new work out for ladies on the go go! As some of you may know, national vegetarian day is October first. SO… I know vegetarian and the vegetarian diet is becoming more and more popular. It is also a great life style choice for girls on the go go. More so, there is vegetarian fitness and that is what I want to talk about with you ladies in the post.
Vegetarian Fitness – Getting The Proper Amount Of Calories
Have you heard of vegetarian fitness? Vegetarians, especially vegetarians who are physically active, have to ensure they get the right nutrients that they miss out on from meat. More so, vegetarians need to work out accordingly. Workouts that are made to burn massive amounts of calories are bad for vegetarians. On average a vegetarian consumes far less calories a day than a non-vegetarian. A workout that would that is made for weight loss could cause a vegetarian to burn more calories than they consume that day. Burning more calories than you consume can be good every now and again. However, you will not gain any muscle the days you burn that many calories. If that starts happening on a regular basis, a vegetarian will lose a ton of weight, never gain any muscle, and could lead to significant health effects. Vegetarian fitness is designed to prevent all of those things through smarter dieting and smarter workouts.
The first step of vegetarian fitness is to make sure you are eating properly. Vegetarian fitness suggests eating more calories than recommended for your size. Working out and exercising requires a large quantity of calories to build muscle and supply the body with energy. There are fruits and veggies out there that are denser than others and also contain far more calories. Bananas are great, as are potatoes. Make sure you get your legumes in. Legumes are a great way to replace the proteins lost from not eating meat. Meat contains a ton of protein and is a crucial part of building more muscle that vegetarians obviously miss out on.
Vegetarian Fitness – Adding Proteins To Your Diet
Protein powders will help you get the calories you need for vegetarian fitness. Not all protein powders are made with proteins from animals. Vegetarian fitness means you need protein, simple as that. Many protein powders are soy based and are therefore part of the vegetarian diet. Just look at the container and read the details, some protein powders are made specifically for non-meat eating individuals and are great for vegetarian fitness. Peanut butter is also a great source of protein. Most, if not all, nuts contain large amounts of protein. If peanut butter is not your thing, there are plenty of other options out there for you to choose from.
Shakes are also a great way for vegetarians to get all the nutrients they need for the day to be effective during vegetarian fitness. You can put all the vegetables and fruits you want in the shake, put in a scoop of peanut butter and a little milk, add a scoop of peanut butter and you have a whole meal right there.
Vegetarian Fitness – Tune Your Workout To Compliment Your Diet
Shorten your workouts and raise the intensity. Long workouts tend to burn far more calories and therefore burn more muscle and fat. Shorter, more intense workouts, build more muscle. Plus, who would not want to shorten their workouts! That is why vegetarian fitness is perfect for the go go! This is also what makes workout DVDs, like p90x, so successful. Ladies, I hope vegetarian fitness can make your life a little easier, leave me a comment and let know, while you stay fit on the go go!
