Frequently Asked Questions

How do vegan athletes get enough protein?

A vegan sports dietitian would suggest athletes consume protein foods at each meal from a variety of options. For example, some excellent choices include beans, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and soy products.

What are the top 3 things to focus on for vegan sports nutrition?

Vegan sports nutritionists recommend a balanced plant-based diet rich in: protein (soy products, legumes, nuts, seeds), fruits and vegetables, and whole grains.

 

Furthermore, we also suggest maintaining optimal bone health by consuming adequate calcium and vitamin D.


Lastly, vegan athletes should ensure adequate B12 intake through supplementation and B-12 fortified foods for optimal blood health. Check out this list of 5 food sources high in vitamin B-12.

Can vegans be athletes?

A well-balanced plant-based diet can provide all the nutrients needed for athletic performance. For this reason, consult a vegan sports nutritionist to improve your diet with a vegan sports nutrition program.

Are vegan athletes better?

Some research studies do in fact indicate that vegan athletes have improved exercise capacity due to increased carbohydrate and antioxidative intake. In contrast, some other studies highlight nutrient deficiencies that can negatively affect overall performance.

 

Therefore, eating balanced meals and making informed choices would help prevent any nutritional deficiencies.

Which sports stars are vegans?

Carl Lewis, the former track and field athlete and nine-time Olympic gold medal winner has been eating a purely plant-based diet since 1990.

 

Similarly, Patrick Baboumian, the former strongest man in Germany has been exclusively on a vegan diet since 2011.

 

Hence, this indicates vegan athletes (endurance and strength training) are capable of performing well.

Which vegan protein brands are healthy?

A few favourite protein powder brands of vegan athlete nutritionists include Nuzest vanilla pea protein powder and Manitoba harvest hemp protein powder.

 

Firstly, Nuzest is loaded with 20g of protein, essential amino acids and 22% iron while containing no added sugar and gluten.

 

On the other hand, Manitoba harvest hemp protein powder contains 15g protein/serving plus 8g fibre which helps sustain energy levels throughout the day.

Do vegan athletes need supplements?

As plant-based vegan nutritionists, we help ensure our clients are meeting their daily nutrient requirements with a well-balanced diet. However, vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia can be a common problem for vegans including athletes, causing extreme tiredness and muscle weakness.

 

For this reason, all vegans need to supplement their diets with vitamin B12 or fortified foods (breakfast cereals, nutritional yeast, soya yogurt).

What foods do vegan athletes eat?

Most importantly, vegan athletes include plant-based protein (soy products, beans, lentils), whole grains (quinoa, whole grain pasta, oats) and a variety of fruits and vegetables at each meal.

 

For instance, whole grain pasta with lentil meatballs and a side salad would be an excellent choice for lunch.

Can you exercise on a plant-based diet?

Plant based diets that are well-balanced and contain minimally processed foods can provide all the nutrients needed for fitness and exercise. Many vegan sports nutritionists believe that a plant-based diet may provide performance-enhancing effects due to high fibre and antioxidant levels.

What form of protein is recommended for a plant-based athlete?

Some Staple proteins for a plant-based athlete are nuts and seeds. For example, hemp seeds contain 11g of protein per 3tbsp, which can easily be added to a smoothie, yogurt, oatmeal or sprinkled on salads.

 

As plant-based sports dietitians, we recommend trying different nuts and seeds in your diet due to their easy use in various recipes.

Should I drink plant protein before or after a workout?

Many vegan sports nutritionists argue that protein pre or post workout does not have any effect on overall performance or muscle protein synthesis. In other words, it’s the total protein in a day that matters most.

 

If you have a shake, make sure you have it 1 hr before the workout to leave time for your body to digest it.

What do vegan athletes eat for breakfast?

As vegan sports nutritionists, some quick breakfast meal options we recommend are granola/oatmeal and fruit bowl or peanut butter with banana on whole grain toast.

 

In addition, edamame avocado toast or muffin with a glass of soy milk are also good choices with plenty of protein and fiber.

Is a vegan diet healthy for athletes?

Animal-based diets containing processed and red meats consist of a wide range of pro-inflammatory compounds.

 

On the other hand, numerous studies have shown that the anti-inflammatory nature of plant foods can help decrease soreness, reduce muscle damage, and support recovery.

 

As a result, many vegan sports nutritionists suggest that this can contribute to improved performance.

Which vitamins and minerals are the greatest concern for vegan athletes?

To get adequate B12, vegan athletes should take a supplement or consume B12-fortified foods (e.g., nutritional yeast and plant-based milks).

 

Secondly, a vegan sports nutrition recommends that vegans get almost twice as much iron because it is not as well absorbed.

 

Therefore, try adding soy products, iron fortified grain products, lentils and dried apricots to your vegan diet.

How do vegan athletes get enough calories?

Consuming adequate energy is crucial for vegan athletes to fuel their performance and growth. Low intake of energy and protein can compromise bone and compromise intake of important nutrients, including calcium and magnesium.

 

Therefore, nuts and nut butters, avocado and olive oil are all excellent choices to ensure adequate energy intake for vegan athletes.
