Pump Iron with Vegan Bodybuilding at Major UK Vegan Festivals in 2015

Pump Iron with Vegan Bodybuilding at Major UK Vegan Festivals in 2015

| by Editor

A lot of people think that steak and whey are essential to bulking up and being manly. According to the UK's Vegan Bodybuilding group, however, greens, tofu, lentils and other protein-rich plant-based foods are at least as effective as meat-based diets in providing our body with the nutritional requirements in bodybuilding. The group will be touring the country in 2015 to not only showcase their physical strength but also promote the feasibility of bodybuilding on plant-based diets and disprove the myth that we need animal products to build muscles and be strong.


Vegan Bodybuilding consists of a number of enthusiastic, fit and athletic vegans, including Alex Mitchell, Pete Ryan and Maz Marriott, who are living examples that vegans can actually be fit, strong and healthy in contrast to popular beliefs. They have been to a number of veggie and vegan events across the country over the past few years, hosting highly popular bodybuilding contests as well as displaying information on gaining muscles and strength on top of speeding up muscle recovery on plant-based diets.



The Vegan Bodybuilding team will be star guests at 9 different vegan festivals in 2015 (current list at bottom). Each of these festivals is packed with mouthwatering food and drinks, inspiring lifestyle information from talks, cookery demos and workshops, plus a range of entertainment such as kids activities and live music. All exhibits on the day are 100% vegan, however visitors of all dietary habits are welcome to join in the fun and learn more about the vegan lifestyle. To find out more about these events, go to the VegfestUK website.

An 8-page booklet on The Vegan Bodybuilding UK Tour 2015 is now available here.

The tour is sponsored by the Vegfest Express 24-hour breaking vegan news website
