Many vegans, vegetarians, and raw foodists have given up on conventional personal trainers, finding a lack of understanding of their specific needs. Because I’ve tried all these ways of eating, I do understand the challenges of being vegan or vegetarian.
I personally don’t believe that one has to eat meat to be healthy and strong.
What to Do?
One challenge is getting the right information about what to eat and what not to eat in order to tone up and gain muscle, and to keep your energy levels high. It’s important to make sure you’re eating foods that have higher than normal levels of minerals, vitamins, and protein.
Including these foods will have a noticeable impact on your energy levels and will sort out any hidden nutritional deficiencies or imbalances.
Another challenge is the “advice” or lack of support from others – be they friends, family, or professionals like doctors, or personal trainers. Rest assured, when those around you see the changes in your body from our personal training sessions and from following the right vegan, vegetarian, or raw food eating plan, they will have no room to argue!
If you are based in north London, just contact me to ask about personal training and nutrition in Kilburn. If you live or work centrally, we can also meet in Westminster. Or we can work together online.
