Gaining Weight on a Vegetarian Diet: Bodybuilding Without Meat

Ask for advice about hitting the gym, and you’ll hear this advice: make sure you’re getting enough protein.

If you’re trying to build up your muscle mass and gain weight quickly, protein is an essential thing.

But what happens if the most common source of protein — meat, poultry and fish — aren’t an option? Millions of people around the world follow a vegetarian diet, forgoing animal protein sources in favour of plant or alternative options.

Whether you’re eschewing meat for personal, moral, religious or dietary reasons, it’s a growing phenomenon, and it’s only getting more prevalent.

If you’re trying to gain weight fast, however, a vegetarian diet is a limitation. Vegetarian bodybuilders in particular have to be pretty careful with their diet.

So how do you gain weight as a vegetarian? It’s possible, but only if you avoid these common pitfalls.

Here are a few simple ways to up your calories, get your protein, and put on weight quickly with a vegetarian diet.
