Legday 🙌🏽😄 Werde jetzt wieder öfter Kniebeugen machen, weil ich die ja eigentlich doch ganz gerne mache, auch wenn der Beintag jetzt nicht unbedingt mein Lieblingstraining ist 🙈 Nutzt ihr Gewichtheberschuhe? Bin damit immer ganz gut gefahren und hab sie jetzt wieder öfter bei der Beinpresse oder beim beugen im Einsatz ✔️ Mein Favorit bleiben aber hier auf jeden Fall die guten alten Chucks ✊🏽

Macronutrients (or #macros ) are made up of three categories: Carbs, Protein & Fat. Every macronutrient is important, so don't be afraid of one. (Nope, Fat won't make you fat! And Carbs neither😋)
🥔Carbs are not essential for our body, because our body can build carbs by itself with protein and fat. But nonetheless your brain and muscles runs on glucose and carbs are the easiest way to provide sufficient energy, so you should aim to consume at least 50% of your daily calories from carbs. Vegan Carbs are rice, potatoes, fruit, veggies, legumes, whole grains, Quinoa, buckwheat, bulgur, Amaranth, etc.
🌿Protein is important for building and maintaining muscles, for providing the body with neurotransmitters and antibodies. Protein consists of amino acids, and there are 8 essential amino acids that our body can't synthesize by itself and that we need to receive through food. Try to consume 10-15% of your daily calories from protein. If you want to gain muscles, increasing the percentage can support your goals. Vegan protein sources are e.g. beans, Peas, lentils, Tofu, tempeh, edamame.
🥑Fat is also essential for our body. Fat helps with the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins and it's also crucial for hormonal balance. A diet too low in fat could be very harmful to your hormonal health, so don't be afraid to eat fats! Vegan sources of fat are nuts, seeds, Avocado, tahini, dark chocolate. .
