Vegans aren’t strong?

Do they look weak to you? Aside from being enormous, powerful, and at the top of their food chain, gorillas eat plants. Yes they will munch on some insects here and there, but they survive on bamboo, fruit and leaves for the most part. Not other animals.

Have you ever seen a baby gorilla?

They are small. Not much muscle. You could say weak. They are born that way, then grow up to be menacing foragers. What does that tell you about nutrition? I personally think it says a great deal about the over-consumption of meat and dairy in the modern diet. Gorillas have been eating the same way for millions of years, and I must say that I think it’s working for them.

They grow up to be swift, agile, strong, and powerful because they work at it. They run, climb, lift objects, and play fight. They do these things instinctively, but they become bigger, faster, and stronger because of it. Our instincts tell us to get jobs, be sedentary (mostly), and eat processed foods and meats. It’s not working to well for us.

Don’t get me wrong. I know that we are all at the mercy of our genetics. And I know that genetically, humans and gorillas are different, but they are able to maintain an enormous amount of muscle mass by eating sticks and grass. 

I am not saying that all vegans are strong and have the potential for feats of power, but proper nutrition will increase everyone’s ability to build muscle and burn fat. 

Yes there are vegans out there that can’t put on their own shoes without getting tired, but there are those of us out there that are in peak physical condition and are muscle building machines. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
