THREE THINGS YOU WILL LEARN

1⃣ THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VEGAN FITNESS NUTRITION AND PROTEIN
One of the main reserves that many people have in regards to starting a vegan fitness nutrition plan is getting in the protein. Shawn sheds some light on the topic by explaining that a simple and consistent diet of veggies provides more than enough protein to sustain the body. Even a highly active once. “There’s no term for protein deficiency, it’s called starvation. If you are not getting enough protein…then you are not getting enough food. If you are eating whole foods until you feel satisfied, then you will be getting enough protein for you and a friend.” In fact, he suggests that instead of putting an emphasis on protein and “rather focus on fiber, the world would be a much healthier place.”

2⃣ TIPS ON HOW TO TRAVEL WITH A FULLY VEGAN DIET
Traveling while trying to maintain a specific diet can be tricky, even when you don’t have food restrictions. However, one of the ways that Shawn maintains a clean and vegan diet is to research and know of restaurants that offer vegan options beforehand. With the increase in awareness and availability of vegan options in the past few years definitely makes the diet more accessible.

3⃣ EXAMPLE OF PRE-WORKOUT FUELING FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE
In this episode, Shawn also touched on some misconceptions that people may have in relation to building blocks of athletic nutrition. Such as the popularly dreaded carb. However, Shawn explains that regardless of whether he is training or having a rest day he is consuming close 800 to 1,100 grams of carbohydrates per day. In order to maintain an efficient metabolism and sustain enough energy to push through hard training sessions.
