Vegetarianism does not have one definition with as many as five different types of eating habits which qualify as being a vegetarian. For most vegetarians, their diet is primarily made up of vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, fish, and dairy products. Some vegetarians will also consume eggs or even poultry. Vegan is the strictest form of vegetarianism, their diet not only excludes all meat products but dairy products are also restricted, so basically no animal products are consumed. Due to the more limited food choices vegetarians have, it means they are required to get more creative with food to ensure their diets include enough nutrients and calories to fuel muscle growth and stay healthy.
We all know the importance protein plays in bodybuilding and of course one of the biggest sources of protein is red meat, so how does the vegetarian bodybuilder work out? There have been many successful vegetarian bodybuilders including Al Beckles, Andreas Cahling and Bill Pearl who went on to win the Mr Universe title in 1971 with arms measuring 21″ and a weight of 242lb, standing at 5` 10″ he achieved this title while on a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet combined with plenty of hard work and without the use of steroids. There are different types of vegetarians, some will eat only vegetable, beans, lentils e.t.c, while some are lacto-ovo and will eat eggs and drink milk, pesco vegetarians will eat fish and drink milk. The biggest problem is getting enough protein into the diet when you are a vegetarian, obviously if you are a lacto-ovo veggie then you can get protein from the eggs, cheese and milk, while fish is a great source of protein for the pesco vegetarian.
I am extremely honored to have the pleasure to interview vegan strength trainer Jon Hinds of Monkey Bar Gym . You may remember his name from the article I posted about vegan football player Tony Gonzalez as well as the video of Tony making his vegan shake.

I have many guy friends who are trying to build muscle and get more buff who think this would be impossible to do as a vegan. I myself used to play varsity sports and was an avid competitor in soccer, track and field, equestrian, and diving so I know what a stress exercise can be on the body as well as the common misconceptions about what is needed to maintain fitness.
The term "vegetarian" covers a variety of eating patterns, including vegan, ovo-vegetarian, and lacto-ovo-vegetarian diets. A well-planned vegetarian diet plan provides the nutrients and energy you need for good health and a healthy weight. Vegetarians tend to be at lower risk for obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer, according to the American Heart Association. Because most vegetarians eat very little or no animal products, they typically consume less saturated fat and cholesterol than meat-eaters, according to the American Heart Association. However, not all vegetarian diets are healthy.
Planning and shopping for a week's worth of vegetarian meals is not that much different than planning non-vegetarian menus. You need to ensure that calorie and nutrition needs are met, which is easier to do when you plan in advance. Taking a little extra time before your week starts to plan menus and create a grocery list saves time during the week because you won't have to make any last minute decisions. Grocery shopping with list in hand will prevent unhealthy impulse purchases and can save money.
