I’m just going to be honest, the majority of vegans that I meet look weak and sick.
Every now and then you meet someone who’s built has an impressive muscular physique and they’re vegan…
But when you ask them if they’ve always been vegan, the answer is almost unanimously no.
In order to create that physique, they had to eat meat.
And for some reason, they bought into the idea that they should eat a diet that’s deprived of vital nutrients and minerals
Propaganda gets the best of us I guess…
But even down to a gut microbiome level, your gut does not respond well to a majority of plants because they have natural phytochemicals inside of them that are released to prevent you from eating them.
Just like if a bear was trying to eat you, you’d flail your arms and try and put up some of a fight…
A majority of vegetables have a similar effect on disturbing your gut microbiome.
Because spinach can’t fight back, it just goes ahead and releases all sorts of defense chemicals that end up harming you.
I’m not saying you should only meat and that’s it, although I know a lot of people who use that as a best practice to follow 90% of the time.
I personally am not scared of eating easily digestible carbs like potatoes, fruit or white rice…
And even certain vegetables like raw carrots or well-cooked mushrooms are a-okay in my book which I can expand on at a later date.
But seriously, there are almost no food sources outside of red meat that can provide such a powerful amount of nutrients in such a small serving…
- B Vitamins: Supports Energy
- Creatine: Supports Muscle Growth
- Carnitine: Supports Healthy Fat Levels
- Taurine: Supports Energy & Nerve Health
- Heme Iron: Supports Skin, and Hair
And even when it comes to Beef Liver, one serving contains…
- Riboflavin (B2 – Helps Cell Function) – 220% of the Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI)
- Folate (B9 – Helps Red Blood Cell Formation) – 60% of the RDI
- Cobalamin (B12 – Brain Development) – 2000% of the RDI
Good luck getting any of that from a kale salad.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (or should I say liverberg? no? ok…)
Don’t let people tell you any different, meat is good for you.
