Being a vegan doesn’t mean that you need to supplement differently. Anyone (vegan or not) who trains consistently in the gym, in my opinion, should be maximising their results by intelligent supplementation.
Are supplements necessary? No. But if they can help you to build more muscle and burn more fat, as well as promoting general health, why would you NOT take them?
It drives me a little bit mad when I hear people evangelically spouting the fact that they don’t believe in taking supplements.
“All of my nutrition comes from food” they love to preach.
Well that is all very well and and good if you are an average person doing average things. But most of the women working a Sculpted Vegan Program are anything but average. They are training a-la-athlete style.
And any athlete worth their salt knows that when you’re pushing your body harder than the average Joe or Jane, you need a little over the counter help.
In this week’s episode of Strong & Sculpted, I take you into my kitchen to show you the exact supplements I take, with exact amounts and timings, to enhance performance and promote muscle growth.
I also take you behind the scenes in my gym workout where we train back and discuss how to get the most out of every rep, to sculpt an hourglass figure that Marilyn Monroe would be proud of.
