Men’s Health magazine has released a ‘complete guide to plant-based eating’.

The publication says the ‘case for swapping turkey with tofu has never been quite so compelling’ since the release of plant-based documentary The Game Changers, which features top athletes including Patrik Baboumian, Scott Jurek and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

‘Burn fat and build muscle’

The guide covers subjects including what a plant-based diet is, how not all plant food is healthy, what foods to eat before and after your workout, as well as a list of vegan recipes specially designed to ‘burn fat and build muscle’.

It also speaks about amino acids and protein on an animal-product-free diet, stating: “Protein – or rather, a distinct lack of it – is a cliché concern among those looking to adopt a plant-based diet. It need not be. For starters, getting enough is easier than you think.”

‘Better for the planet’

Men’s Health also speaks about the environmental impact of animal agriculture, stating a plant-based diet is ‘better for the planet’ as ‘animal agriculture (breeding, feeding and slaughtering cows, pigs, chickens, et) emits more greenhouse gases than the entire transportation industry combined’.

It also features plant-based vlogger Jon Venus, who shares what a typical day of eating looks like to him.
