You really DON’T have to eat meat to get big muscles
Vegans don’t need to worry about bulking up.
Their diets are just as effective in protein uptake and maintaining muscle strength, new research suggests.
Protein is known to help muscles grow, but it’s been unclear whether it must come from specific food sources.
Critics of the ethical diet have long been convinced that those who stick to plant-based foods are missing out on nutrients from meat.
But scientists have discovered that so long as they eat legumes, nuts and kale, they will have the same strength as a meat-eater.
