As Seen On

First, let’s start by answering the question « Who is a Vegetarian? ».

The Vegetarian Society has made it easy and simple to understand who a vegetarian actually is:

A vegetarian is someone who consumes pulses, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits, vegetables, fungi, yeast, algae, and some other non-animal-based foods (e.g., salt) with, or without, dairy products, honey or eggs.

A vegetarian doesn’t eat foods that consist of living or dead animals or that have been produced with the aid of animals. This includes meat, fish, shellfish, poultry, insects, by-products of slaughter** or any food made with processing aids created from these.

So, a vegetarian is one who avoids eating meat. It’s usually a self-motivated lifestyle change and can be caused by a variety of reasons such as religious beliefs, health risks, ethical liabilities or moral considerations.

More recently, we have seen many athletes and bodybuilders turning to vegetarianism or veganism. A few years back, it seemed like an unlikely idea to switch to an entirely plant-based diet with no meat or dairy products involves and retain an ultra-cool, well-built body.

How would you get the necessary proteins, was the first question that aspiring vegans had to consider.

But contrary to popular belief, veganism is not at all an obstacle in your path to building muscle mass through resistance training.

I have a confession to make.

I went on vacation to Turkey this summer and, I enjoyed the food. So much that when back home, I had a surprise 6 pound gain. I had managed the whole year to keep weight off and I learned the hard way that once you get sloppy with your nutrition, you get punished immediately.

Traveling is awesome. It’s a great way to build up a strong personality. As some people say, when you travel to a place, you carry a part of it back with yourself. It makes you better at conversation, more confident, more adaptable, more adventurous, more easy-going, smarter and probably happier!

While travel is part of our lives, it presents many challenges for meeting our nutritional goals.

Whether taking a vacation or heading out on a business trip, it’s often tricky to remain healthy and avoid bad food choices when you don’t have access to a kitchen.

“Appetite comes with eating,” says my general practitioner, a fan of hiking, and I decided at the beginning of 2018 to take a new step.

I wanted to optimize my physical capacities for different reasons, never to be short of breath, to feel more and more flexible and agile, and to no longer have any joint problems or back pain.

In short, to simply feel good in my own skin and make my body strong, flexible, toned and slim.

My name is Lisa, and I work as a marketing manager at a multinational company in Brussels.

After discovering the Keto diet, I’m not in my ideal weight but I’m not overweight. I no longer lose my breath when climbing the stairs, I can run a semi-marathon in less than 1:30 and 10km in less than 55 minutes. No exceptional performances, but overall I feel more in shape at 35 than ever before.

Do you know what a Paleo diet is?

Popularly known as the caveman diet, the Paleo diet is the latest craze among dieters and fitness buffs. It’s called after our ancestors from thousands of years ago: The Paleolithic Humans. The Paleo diet is inspired by the eating habits of human hunter-gatherer descendants.

When we think of a caveman, the image of a perfectly healthy, fit, and muscular individual comes up in our minds. That’s an attractive sight indeed. Anyone would want to look like him.

However, some aspiring nutritionists take it a step ahead in picturing the caveman. For them, he’s the most stress-free individual living in complete harmony with the environment.
