Plant-based diets are in — but “carbs” are out. Just what do athletes need to know in order to resolve their confusion regarding how to build a plant-based sports diet? This webinar will focus on how plant-based athletes can optimally fuel their muscles, consume enough leucine and plant protein to build and repair muscles, identify the nutritional differences between animal foods and their plant alternative (such as plant milks, faux burgers, vegan protein powders), and figure out how to balance the pros and cons of vegan vs omnivorous diets.
At the end of the webinar, the participant will be able to:
- Define “plant-based” (for the purpose of this webinar)
- Discuss three nutritional benefits of eating a plant-based sports diet
- Cite three problems for athletes related to choosing a plant-based diet
- Design a balanced and performance-enhancing plant-based sports diet
