Often people’s idea of a  “vegan” is a lanky hipster with traditional tattoos and a beanie. They almost never imagine athletes and fewer would picture a bodybuilder. That is because people do not understand how macronutrients work and how they affect the appearance or performance of their body.


Macronutrients are a group of 3 nutrients that compose all the food we eat. They are also major contributors to our daily body functions. These  major nutrients are protein, fat and carbohydrates.


To start, you must decide if you want to maintain your current weight, gain or lose weight. Then you determine how many calories you need for each of these goals by using a calorie calculator. A quick google search will give you plenty of free ones to pick from and based on your age, sex, height, weight and activity level your daily caloric intake will be given to you. 


The next step is breakdown your caloric intake into macros. To maintain your weight your macros would be about 25-35% protein, 25-35% fat and 30-50% carbs. In order to gain weight you would eat 40-60% carbs, 25-35% protein and 15-25% fat. Lastly, to lose weight you would want 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat and 10-30% carbs. 


The stereotypical appearance of people living a vegan lifestyle has to change.  More people from diverse backgrounds are waking up and making a difference starting with their food including everyday people and individuals with sports influences. Once you learn to manipulate the amount of macronutrients you eat you can create different results in your body.
