Build muscle and stay healthy this Veganuary

Veganism has risen at an astounding rate in the UK, with more and more people advocating and adopting a vegan lifestyle than ever before.

Today, the benefits of living a vegan lifestyle are known to extend into a variety of societal areas. The fact of the matter is having more and more people adopted plant-based diets could have a major environmental impact.

According to researchers at Oxford Martin School, greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by two thirds if the entire planet switched to a vegan-based lifestyle.

Healthcare savings and lower levels of climate damage are also cited as additional benefits, and the more people that make the leap to veganism, the greater the potential benefits.

This information is being heeded. The number of vegans in the UK quadrupled between 2014 and 2018 according to a survey commissioned by The Vegan Society last year.

The Veganuary charity encourages people to adopt veganism in January, and potentially convert them to this way of living on a long-term basis.

But one potential barrier to more and more people becoming vegans is a perceived disruption to their day-to-day life. One area of concern might be health and fitness, as certain sources of protein can be lost once a vegan lifestyle is adopted. This is particularly problematic for people looking to build muscle and get fit.

Going the plant-based way

Thankfully, there are plenty of high-quality plant-based proteins out there. These products can help ensure requisite levels of protein are maintained in a diet without requiring sources such as fish,  chicken or other meats.

If you’re looking to build muscle and get stronger as part of a new year’s resolution, but want to adhere to the vegan way of living, Evolution Organics can help.

We have a broad selection of vegan protein products available from our online store that can help you achieve enhanced sports performance – all without compromising your veganism.

These are both multi stage qualifications and I spent ten years working my way through the more advanced levels and the epic reading lists that go with them. I still have Chek level 4 to look forward to and in the coming years plan to travel to San Diego and finish the journey.I took a brief break from my studies with the CHEK institute in 2007 to qualify as a St John's certified Neuromuscular Therapist and returned in 2008 and 2009 to complete the level 3 CHEK certifications.4 years ago I started studying with the four winds institute of energy medicine in America which is formed from the ancient shamanic healing techniques of the South American Q'ero Indians. This combined with the works of David; R Hawkins MD brought together for me the most extraordinary revelation as to dynamics of true health and wellness.I continue to read and study on my own path guided by those that I have studied with previously as I continue my research in to the many subjects that form the health equation.I have been running my own business, Core Evolution, for the last 12 years.
