  1. It’s not impossible but it’s clearly not optimal. Your protein sources as a vegan or vegetarian are next to nothing and there is no dispute that animal protein is superior to plant protein in the fact that the amino acid profile content is 10x richer, which is better for both building muscle and being lean. However, I’ve never heard of anyone becoming vegan or vegetarian for health or performance benefits…it’s an ethical standpoint. Veganism for performance doesn’t exist.

    • It’s far healthier given the modern supplements industry to be vegan. I don’t believe it’s right for athletes and especially strength athletes. But by and large it’s healthier given how most meat is prepared outside the home. By that I mean the garbage the passes for food at fast food places and restaurants that use things like Gordon Food services stuff.
