A variety of protein from different sources is necessary to get the right mixture of amino acids, which are used to build and repair the body's cells, and important for a number of bodily functions.

As we know a vegan diet means no food derived from animals. This leads us to the questions, how do vegans get protein in their diet? and should they supplement with protein? There is a lot of debate whether vegans should or need to supplement with protein in this blog we will be discussing all factors of a vegan lifestyle which contribute to these questions. 

"Should vegans supplement with protein?"

The answer isn't a simple yes or no, due to everyone having different lifestyles. Two lifestyle factors which makes this question difficult to answer is our diet and activity levels.

Diet - This can answer the first question we mentioned 'how to vegans get protein'. Luckily its not just chicken or eggs we can get protein from 🤣 A vegan diet can be high in protein with the right foods, vegan foods which are high in protein include: 

Due to vegans typically eating a large variation of fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, fibre and protein makes their diet nutritious and healthy. But we can't speak for all vegans, some can have bad diets where they don't eat enough or too much of certain products. This is where each individuals marcos, dietary requirements, calories etc. make the difference whether they should supplement with protein or not, if your not maintaining the right amount for your body you should consider supplementing with protein.

Activity/Movement: Our individual levels of daily movement play a big role in this answer, things which contribute to this are our: 

  • Job
  • Daily step count
  • Amount of exercise per week
  • Type of exercise
  • Exercise intensity
  • Sport
  • Hobby
  • Injury
  • Choice of travel (car, bus, walk)

Our jobs play a big role in this when you compare an individual with a desk job to a manual labor job, obviously the two jobs have a big difference in movement, intensity, weight lifting and calories burning. Someone with a manual job would require more protein in their diet to someone with a desk job due to the calories being burnt and needing to repair muscle more.

If any of the above listed require a lot of movement daily you may want to consider supplementing with protein.
