You don’t need meat to gain muscle.

Many bodybuilders across the world will insist that in order to get ripped, you need the high-level of protein found in animal meat.

However, now that more and more people are adopting a vegan diet, a new line of plant-based bodybuilders are coming out of the woodwork to show you that you don’t need animal meat in order to get ripped.

That’s where Matthew St Clair AKA Vegan Thor comes in. He is just one of a whole load of other vegan bodybuilders who champions the use of plant protein.

Apparently before getting fit Matthew suffered from confidence issues, which had become so bad that he didn’t get his clothes off in front of other people. However, now he’s put the work in and lives on healthy food like sweet potato and kale salads, BBQ seitan pizzas and veggie sushi rolls and he’s feeling better than ever:

You can accomplish any physique on a plant based diet.

Put in the work, eat right, and be patient! The biggest issue people have with this equation is time. Nothing happens fast enough in this day and age.

Unfortunately, a fast forward button does not exist. Eat plants. Do the work. Wait…You will see results, just be patient.

***DID YOU KNOW*** Today marks the anniversary of Lolita's capture. 47 YEARS AGO! She was only 4 years old when she was torn away from her family during the largest capture of wild orcas in history 😥 • Seven orcas were kidnapped from their ocean home after the use of bombs and nets helped herd 80 orcas into Puget Sound Cove. Five orcas died that day. The baby calves sliced open and filled with rocks and chains so they'd sink to the bottom of the ocean in order to keep their deaths a secret from the public 😭 • Lolita was sold to the Miami Seaquarium for a mere $6,000 for entertainment purposes. She is the sole survivor from that fateful day, as she continues to live in a tank that violates the Animal Welfare Act's minimum size requirements 🤔 • I see a lot of discussion circulating #instagram with a surprising amount of people agreeing with the fact that her living conditions are bullshit. These same people will then insist that it's the best option for her because she would never survive back in the wild… Google seaside sanctuary if you need a better understanding of a plausible third option 👌🏽 • Once you hear Lolita's full story, I think you can appreciate the fact that individuals are willing to stand up for her and say, "Hey, hold the phone. This wedding is horseshit! She deserves better. We deserve better." #FreeLolita #StepBrothers

And just look at him now – he’s ripped, he’s healthy and he’s built up quite the following on social media. Plants are powerful, guys.

On the complete opposite end of the bodybuilding spectrum, check out this guy who got ripped by eating nothing but chickens. That can’t be healthy.
