It is a popular misconception that you need to be a meat eater in order to have success in body building. The truth is that the vegetarian bodybuilding can be equally effective in building muscle as a regular meat eating diet. There are many misconceptions about vegetarians which is the reason why many people don’t associate them with body building. Many people believe that without eating the meat of an animal, you will not be able to get enough protein and other essential nutrients. That is simply not true when it comes to vegetarian body building you can easily get proteins from other food sources, like soy products, beans, various grains, eggs and dairy product provide plenty of muscle building proteins. Also, many vegetarian body building athletes are drinking supplemental shakes with whey protein as well as other important vitamins and minerals like zinc, vitamin B12, iron and more. Vegetarians actually have a better chance of increasing their strength and size with their meat free lifestyle.
ABOUT VEGETARIAN TIMES
The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.

Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.
—James A. Froude, English historian (1818–1894)
If you visit the killing floor of a slaughterhouse, it will brand your soul for life.

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.
