1. Nutrition From Plants
When it comes to being vegan, there are a number of ‘methods’ that some people tend to stick to as if it was a gospel, and at times, they may even push their agenda on others as if their way of eating is the only way. So with that being said, I’ve never been one to follow the crowd. I eat anything that’s vegan. Those who know me see that I cater to my sweet tooth in moderation, vegan donuts in particular. Good nutrition is a key element to good health and having a normal relationship with food is especially important for an athlete. However indulging in moderation is a vegan pleasure I partake in.
2. Physical Exercise
Many people want instant gratification, and this leads to disappointment and setbacks that are often worse than the starting point. The goal should be about maintaining this lifestyle indefinitely. Natural bodybuilding has longevity, whereas impatience can cause yo-yo dieting.
3. Mental Affirmations and Kindness Towards Others
This one is simple. You receive the energy that you put out. Be kind to others and they will be kind to you.
