Introduction to a Vegan Diet For Muscle Building (0:54)
Before we look at the exact foods for a vegan muscle building diet, it’s important that you also make sure that you’re on the right muscle building training program to see the best muscle gains. So in this section, we’re going to give you some of the basics of a muscle-building training program.
How to Set Your Muscle Building Protein Target (2:26)
Whether you’re eating a plant-based meal plan or not, the first focus for a bodybuilding diet is to lock in your protein target. Proteins are the building blocks of muscle gains, and we recommend getting around 0.8g-1g of protein per pound of bodyweight daily. From this target, it will be much easier to work in your protein foods for the day, along with your carbs and fats. And this is especially important for a vegan bodybuilding diet as protein sources are a little more scarce.
How Many Meals To Eat Each Day (3:24)
As with any diet, there are a variety of ways that we can approach scheduling out your meals for the day, in terms of both timing and amount. As long as you’re hitting both your protein and calorie targets for the day, it really comes down to what is going to the most convenient for your schedule. As you’ll discover in this video, for a vegan muscle building diet, we recommend eating around 4 meals per day so you can spread out your protein intake.
Calorie Target for a Vegan Bodybuilding Diet (4:11)
Another important consideration for your vegan bodybuilding diet is, of course, determining your daily caloric intake. Because if you’re underrating, your muscle gains will suffer, and in this video, we will help you determine your daily calorie target for building muscle.

FAQ’s- Vegan Bodybuilding Diet (8:09)
In this section, you’ll discover answers to some of the most common questions and concerns when it comes to a vegan muscle building diet. You’ll discover whether or not the proteins from a vegan diet are equivalent to an omnivorous diet, how to supplement your nutrition with some of the key muscle-building nutrients that you might be missing out on, and whether or not soy will negatively impact your testosterone levels and muscle gains.
