Vegetarian Muscle Building

Muscle building and bodybuilding for vegetarians. How much protein do you need to build muscle? What are some high protein foods for vegetarians?

Ever hear the rumor that Vegetarians will have a harder time building muscle? Not true!

You can build muscle, and probably be a lot healthier from your vegetarian lifestyle.

Many bodybuilders have it in their minds that the protein requirements to build muscle, exceed anything that a vegetarian would be able to consume in a days time...

However, the truth is, most people are simply over eating in an attempt to build muscle.

Most people are depending way to much on calorie consumption for muscle building, when the truth is, they should be focusing on their exercise, and weight training.

You really don't have to eat things like beef, chicken, or fish to build muscle. Foods such as... the long list of soy products, a variety of beans, a variety of rice, (whey, eggs, for Lacto-ovo- vegetarians) can really help a vegetarian get their protein requirements to build muscle.

But let's not forget, your fruits and vegetables have amino acids too, but just in smaller amounts.

You will hear a lot about needing 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight... but the truth is, you can still build muscle when consuming less than this. You don't have to live in a butcher shop.

A person consuming 1 gram of protein for every 2 pounds of body weight will be getting enough protein to help build muscle. The bodybuilding industry would love for you to think that you need more than this, so that you buy more protein products, but you don't have to.

You can save money, be healthier, eat less, and still build muscle... imagine that...
