At times, it’s hard to wrap our protein-obsessed heads around the idea that someone can be meat-free and muscled up.

After all, the vast majority of low-carb, high-protein foods come from, y’know, animals. But between movies like What The Health (which argues that we’re slowly killing ourselves by loading up on chicken, eggs, and steak) and studies delivering the news that vegetarian athletes may actually perform better than meat-eaters, it may be time to start considering whether we really have to choose between meat and muscles.

Because according to a growing number of vegan athletes, you definitely don’t.

We talked to seven guys whose livelihood literally depends on being fit AF—including an NFL player, a pro wrestler, an NBA baller, and top personal trainer Joe Holder (that’s him above)—yet who eat totally animal-free.

Here’s what a day in a vegan diet looks like for the ultra-jacked.

Black-eyed pea salad

The United Nations declared 2016 “The Year of the Pulse,” which includes dried peas, beans, lentils, and garbanzo beans. To change up this salad, you can substitute black beans, white beans, or garbanzo beans for the black-eyed peas. All these pulses are filled with muscle-building protein and healthy fat, which also makes for a satisfying meal.

Chef’s note: Instead of dried peas, you may use 4 ½ cups precooked or canned black-eyed peas, no salt added, rinsed, and drained (about 2 1/2 15-oz cans).

For hardcore lifters—including 3-time Men’s Physique Olympia Champion & reigning champion Jeremy Buendia and 17-time Olympia-winning coach Hany Rambod, featured in the video above—few things are as rewarding as a monster muscle pump. To fully achieve the ultimate pump, it takes a desire to push through the pain and the ability to elevate nitric oxide levels when knocking out those last few reps.

Nitrosigine is a supplemental ingredient that has been shown in numerous clinical studies to have extensive NO-boosting capabilities, with both short- and long-term anabolic benefits.

But the proof is in the pump, and Nitrosigine is shown to boost muscle pump and increase muscle volume.1 In a clinical study, Nitrosigine elevated blood arginine levels for up to six hours2, which means a greater NO release long after your training session is over. It was even shown to increase energy levels both immediately and over time.

So what makes…

Obesity and Cancer

Is it possible to lose weight without starvation? FREE Download: Ketogenic Diet Book » KetoVIP.

We’ve talked extensively over the last few years about obesity, metabolic syndrome, fasting, and type 2 diabetes. These are extremely important in the development of cardiovascular disease (heart attacks and strokes). This addresses the number 1 killer of Americans, but we have not yet touched upon the very close #2 killer of Americans – the big C – Cancer.
You can see that heart disease, stroke and cancer really dwarf the other causes of death. It is important to realize that many of the other major causes of death also have a metabolic base. This includes diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, liver disease, and kidney disease. This means that fully 6 of the top 10 causes of death are metabolic in nature. The other major causes are infectious, smoking related (lung disease) and suicide/accidents.
The links between obesity and cancer are quite preliminary because the obesity epidemic really only get started in 1977 or so. Prior to that, obesity was stable in prevalence so there…

Dr. Rosedale is a true pioneer of the low-carb movement, early on highlighting the role of insulin and leptin in diseases. He’s also been passionately interested in protein and the biology of aging for decades.
In this interview, he talks about how type 2 diabetes can be seen as a model for accelerated aging. So whatever reverses type 2 diabetes – and several things can help doing that, beyond low carb – can possibly slow the aging process.
Dr. Rosedale also talks about his early experiences as a low-carb doctor, methods for life extension and what it’s like working in India, trying to make a meaningful impact in the middle of an enormous epidemic of obesity and diabetes.

Maintaining a 100-Pound Weight Loss for Seven Years

Before and after

Name: Brian Wiley
Age: 43
Height: 6’0” (1.8 m)
Highest Weight: 260 lbs (118 kg)
Current Weight: 150-155 lbs (68-71 kg)

As Brian Wiley recalls, when he was about nine years old, he went from being a lean child to a heavy one.
“JI remained pretty overweight up until my freshman year of high school, when I had a growth spurt, got involved in sports, and leaned out,” Brian says. “But once I hit my twenties, I started to slowly start getting bigger again.”
He attributes the weight gain to a combination of factors, including working a lot, frequent consumption of fast food, and being busy with his wife and first child.
“It crept up on me. I didn’t keep track of my weight at all. I realized I had put on some weight but didn’t really think much about it because I was young and healthy. But when I’d order food in a restaurant, the server would say, “And what do you want, big guy?’ And I’d never heard anyone call me that before,” he…

Your doctor may be convinced you need to take statin drugs, even though you only have “high” cholesterol. But you’ve heard warnings elsewhere. So what should you believe?
Thankfully, here’s Dr. Malhotra (expert cardiologist) explaining the statin controversy in relatively simple terms. It’s still somewhat complicated, but at least it’s understandable:
