Marisol Ortiz is a new woman on the side of Bastian Yotte, and registered nutritionist MS RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) has pretty much transformed an entrepreneur, jungle camper and bodybuilder. (All about love between couples here)Unlike its predecessors, Marisol is a natural beauty and Marisol is a vegan. And although Bastian's muscles are so important, he performed the self-experiment, with great success. In an exclusive Promiwood interview, Marisol reveals what's important.
Question: Bodybuilders often invest all their energy into their sport. How about her fear of breaking a vegan diet?
"For years, animal source proteins are believed to be needed for muscle growth, strength and performance. Following a vegan diet or even a vegetarian diet was almost a big noon among bodybuilders. Why? It was simply assumed that plants – including cereals, fruits, vegetables, beans , legumes, nuts, and seeds – will not provide enough protein to build and maintain their muscle mass or be “weak.” However, studies show that a plant-based diet can easily meet the requirements for optimal health and provide additional health benefits. and even uses it to work, as long as it is well planned and diverse.
Bastian shows with his
Just experiment that a vegan diet is possible. Not only
his muscle mass has remained the same, but he is only 50
gained strength in vegan days. "
Question: What to pay particular attention to vegan diets and desired muscle growth?
"As mentioned earlier, it is often asked where vegetarians get their protein. It is often assumed that a plant-based diet contains no protein and that the sources of plant protein are inferior to animal ones, which is not the case. Although protein is an important nutrient that plays a key role in our body, including muscle building, regeneration and maintenance, we don't need as much protein as the fitness industry believes in. In fact, studies show that high-protein diets are linked to harmful health effects – such as osteoporosis and kidney disease – and that diets rich in animal protein sources are even more at risk of chronic diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes there.
There are many plant sources of protein to choose from. In fact, all plant foods contain proteins – nuts, seeds, vegetables, beans and legumes, cereals, etc., with some sources being more nutritious than others. Regardless of what was once believed, it is not absolutely necessary to combine certain plant foods with each meal to get all the amino acids. Anyone who consumes a varied plant-based diet and daily whole grains and legumes from nutrient-rich sources will get enough of all the amino acids.
Other nutrients to consider are Group B vitamins – found in legumes and whole grains or enriched cereal products (supplement B12 may be required for strict vegans); Phytochemicals and Antioxidants – Contained in fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains; Calcium – Contains it in dark leafy vegetables, figs and enriched non-fat products; Vitamin D – Contains it in fortified foods (supplement may be recommended, whether you are vegetarian or not); and Iron – Contains legumes, dark green vegetables, dried plums and enriched cereals (combine foods rich in iron-rich plant foods with foods rich in Vitamin C for better absorption).
Question: How difficult or how easy was Bastian's change?
"Bastian claims that it was easy to adapt to the vegan diet and that he did not lack an animal product. He agrees, however, that this transition was easy just for my help.
It should be noted that he still takes his protein supplements, regardless of what I have to say about the plant's protein sources. I agree that protein supplements can help with protein intake at times of scarcity, but they are not necessarily daily to meet protein requirements, regardless of activity level. The key to eating enough protein is choosing a variety of foods and calorie intake. Here, Bastian is still in the process of learning or thinking. He's a little stubborn, but step by step … "
Question: Is there any advice for our readers?
"Whether a complete plant-based diet is right for you or not, adding more plant-based foods – including fruits and vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds and healthy fats – can improve your overall health and workforce."
