custom Vegetarian bodybuilding meal plan

Vegetarian Bodybuilding

Welcome to the free vegetarian custom fitness meal planner! Being a vegetarian will not reduce your ability to add muscle, I'm one and it hasn't hurt me. Those who think vegetarians cant be successful bodybuilders either don't understand the different kinds of vegetarians or don't understand bodybuilding nutrition.  A vegetarian is not someone who only eats vegetables :)  Arnold fostered the incorrect view that you have to eat muscle to gain muscle.  The trouble with the word "vegetarian" is that it has become an emotionally charged word that has religious, political, and ethical ramifications.  So many people have used it in so many different ways that it has basically become useless. Here is ridiculous dictionary definition:
Vegetarianism: The theory or practice of living on a diet  made up of vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and sometimes animal products (as milk and cheese).
This definition is so vague as to be meaningless.  "... sometimes animal products (as milk and cheese)", oh thats helpful - it doesn't even mention eggs.    Below are my own simple definitions of vegetarian from a bodybuilding nutritional point of view:
  • Omnivore: Someone who eats anything they want.  Most bodybuilders are omnivores.
  • Vegetarian: Someone who does not get protein from the muscle tissue of other animals but eats products naturally released from animals as part of the reproductive process: eggs and milk.  This is also refered to as a lacto-ovo vegetarian.
  • Vegan: Someone who only eats food which comes from plants.

These are the only classifications of vegetarian that are relevant from a bodybuilding perspective.  A pescatarian is an ominvore because they eat the muscle tissue of fish.   The other sub-classifications of vegetarians  like "raw vegetarians" and "macrobiotic vegetarians" are not relevant from a bodybuilding perspective.   The only questions relevant from a bodybuilding nutritional point of view are:
  1. Does the diet include meat (chicken, beef, fish, pork, etc)
  2. Does the diet include milk and eggs.
One reason people mistakenly believe that vegetarians cant be bodybuilders is that they mistake vegans for vegetarians.  The ability to consume eggs and dairy products (point number 2 above) makes an incredible difference. Vegans (those who  consume no animal products whatsoever) are at a big disadvantage when it comes to adding muscle but vegetarians are not hindered at all - lets look at why this is true.

Why CustomMealPlanner is best for athletes/bodybuilders

CustomMealPlanner was written by athletes, for athletes. Competing bodybuilders, triathletes, runners, and men's physique competitors. We provide the optimal nutrition for you no matter how active you are or what your goal is. We take the guesswork out of both bulking and cutting. The last thing you want to have to do as a powerlifter or bodybuilder is to do a panic starvation diet at the last minute to make your weight class because you will lose all kinds of muscle. With the bodyfat charts provided with every meal plan you can see exactly when you will achieve your target bodyfat and get sixpack abs.


Similarly, we take the guesswork out of bulking also. If you have a good idea what your muscle gain rate will be, we can tell you exactly what kind of caloric surplus you should be running and the weight charts make this clear. Below is an example of a weight chart showing both scale weight and LBM:
