Vegetarian Bodybuilding

V3 Plant-based Fitness

Chris Willitts, creator of V3 has been in the bodybuilding and vegetarian for over 20 years and 10 years respectively. He was inspired to launch his vegetarian bodybuilding platform having seeing the need the vegetarianism is an effective tool to be applied in the bodybuilding industry. He majored in flexibility, strength, and mind-body interrelation. Having switched to the plant-based diet he included meditation. V3 Vegetarian Bodybuilding System is a combination of Chris advice and science on how to eat in line with one's fitness goals, infusing the whole program with mind-body awareness. The system is designed not only for vegetarians, but semi-vegetarians, part-time vegetarians, vegans, or undecided. The V3 Bodybuilding system is a self-guided system the does not include one-on-one coaching. The V3 has been deliberated upon by top plant-based fitness experts in the industry before coming up with something that has an assurance of getting positive results to the general populace. The V3 Bodybuilding System is not an eBook. It is actually a membership-based online resource (which some parts of the worksheet are available for download as PDFs). This product is easy to understand and it is newbie friendly that do not require any level of technical skills. Read more here...

My V3 Plantbased Fitness Review

Highly Recommended

This book comes with the great features it has and offers you a totally simple steps explaining everything in detail with a very understandable language for all those who are interested.

Overall my first impression of this book is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Feeding ecology and diet

Feeding strategies among primitive diprotodonts were aimed at a generalist herbivorous diet of leaves, fruits, and roots. The prehensile tail and opposable digits of the front feet enhanced climbing ability in many, giving them access to the branches of trees as well as some security from ground dwelling predators like the thylacine. The majority of dipro-todonts are still vegetarian, but whereas early diprotodonts were mostly generalists, many now specialize in a wide range of vegetarian diets. The great radiation of ancient dipro-

The 216aHydroxylated Estrogen Breast Cancer Risk Hypothesis

Other epidemiological studies addressing the hypothesis that the ratio of 2-hydroxylation to 16a-hydroxylation of estrone is important in breast cancer development have not been supportive. Adlercreutz and coworkers151 determined the urinary estrogen profile, consisting of 13 estrogens, by GC-MS twice in 1 year in 10 premenopausal Finnish women with breast cancer and two control groups, one consuming an omnivorous diet (n 12) and the other a lac-tovegetarian diet (n 11). They found that the ratio of 2-hydroxyestrone to 16a-hydroxyestrone was highest in the breast cancer group and lowest in the vegetarians. Thus, they could not confirm the observation of higher 16a-hydroxylation of estrogens in premenopausal breast cancer patients. Instead, they found that the relative amounts of 2-hydroxylated estrogens in the breast cancer group tended to be higher than in the controls. This finding is supported by data from Lemon and associates,152 who carried out a retrospective meta-analysis of...

Dietary prevention of sudden cardiac death SCD the role of dietary fatty acids alcohol and antioxidants

Support for the hypothesis of a clinically significant antiarrhythmic effect of n-3 PUFA in the secondary prevention of CHD, as put forward in DART,3 came from two randomised trials testing the effect of ethnic dietary patterns (instead of that of a single food or nutrient), i.e. a Mediterranean type of diet and an Asian vegetarian diet, in the secondary prevention of CHD.18'19 The two experimental diets included a high intake of essential alpha-linolenic acid, the main vegetable n-3 PUFA. Whereas the incidence of SCD was markedly reduced in both trials, the number of cases was very small and the antiarrhythmic effect cannot be entirely attributed to alpha-linolenic acid as these experimental diets were also high in other nutrients with potential antiarrhythmic properties, including various antioxidants. These findings were extended by the population-based case-control study conducted by Siscovick and colleagues on the intake of n-3 PUFA among patients with primary cardiac arrest,...

Dietary control of conventional risk factors cholesterol blood pressure type 2 diabetes and obesity

This was the basis of a new 'diet-heart hypothesis' in which cholesterol was not the central issue.36,123 In fact, the first dietary trials designed for the secondary prevention of CHD were based on the hypothesis that a cardioprotective diet should primarily reduce cholesterol.36 While the investigators succeeded in reducing cholesterol, they failed to reduce CHD mortality.41 This was mainly attributed to an insufficient effect of the tested diets on cholesterol, and the conclusion was that cholesterol-lowering drugs should be preferred. However, none of the diets tested in these old trials was patterned from the traditional diets of populations protected from CHD (e.g. vegetarian, Asian or Mediterranean), although these diets are associated with low cholesterol.119,122 Also, no trial was aimed at testing the cholesterol-lowering effect of a typical Mediterranean diet, probably because this diet was (and often still is) mistakenly regarded as a high-fat diet, allegedly not...

The relative contributions of genes environment and luck to how we age

Contention that the life spans of average humans with their average set of genetic polymorphisms are differentiated primarily by their habits and environments. Supporting this idea is a study of Seventh Day Adventists. In contrast to the American average life expectancy of 78 years, the average life expectancy of Seventh Day Adventists is 88 years. Because of their religious beliefs, members of this religious faith maintain optimal health habits, such as not smoking, a vegetarian diet, regular exercise and maintenance of a lean body mass, that translate into the addition of 10 years to their average life expectancy compared with other Americans (Fraser and Shavlik, 2001). Given that in the United States, 75 of persons are overweight and one third are obese (Fontaine et al., 2003) far too many persons still use tobacco (Wechsler et al., 1998), and far too few persons regularly exercise (Wei et al., 1999), it is no wonder that our average life expectancy is about 10 years less than what...

Evolution and systematics

Seedsnipes have traditionally been considered charadri-iform birds, and biochemical evidence supports this relationship and places seedsnipes in the scolopacid assembly. Their closest relative is the plains-wanderer (Pedionomus torquatus), an Australian species that at one time was placed near the hemipodes (Gruiformes), and is included there in this work. However, plains-wanderers have a skeleton with a broad, two-notched sternum and a broad pelvis that is remarkably similar to that of a Thinocorus seedsnipe. Biochemical evidence also supports the relationship between plains-wanderers and seed-snipes. Seedsnipes probably had a long independent evolution and possess several derived characters such as a superficially passerine-like skull. Seedsnipes differ from most other shore-birds in having a crop, gizzard, and long intestinal caeca that evidently are adaptations to their vegetarian diet.

Micronutrients Alleviating Nutritional Disorders By Nutraceuticals

Plants synthesize and accumulate an astonishingly diverse array of vitamins, and nutraceuticals that have health-promoting properties (33,34). Many naturally occurring compounds have health promoting or disease preventing properties beyond the mere provision of nutrients for basic nutrition (1,34-36). In this way, plants not only constitute the base of the human food chain but they are also important means to improve human health and well-being, with the exception of vitamin B12 and D. A diverse and well-balanced plant-based diet, that includes mixed sources of grains, fruits, and vegetables, can ensure the proper micronutrient nutrition and health at all stages of the life cycle (Tables 5.1, 5.2) (18,20,21,37-39). It is known that seeds are good sources of lipid-soluble vitamins, but tend to have low levels of bioavailable iron, zinc, and calcium, whereas leafy vegetables can supply most minerals and vitamins. Fruits provide water-soluble vitamins and several types of carotenoids but...

South African porcupine

Mostly vegetarian, using strong digging claws to find roots, tubers, and bulbs. Also fond of fallen fruits, thistles, a variety of plants, leaves, and will sometimes gnaw on bark. Cultivated crops such as corn, sweet potatoes, pineapples, sugar cane, young cocoa and oil palms, bamboo, melons, and onions are eaten. Anterior large intestine and enlarged appendix contain microorganisms that break down undigested plant fibers. Also eat carrion in some cases. In areas deficient in phosphorous they gnaw on bones, often accumulating piles of bones in dens.

North American porcupine

Porcupines are vegetarians, dining on foliage for much of the year and turning to the inner bark of oaks and pines in the winter months. They are also known to eat seeds, fruits, nuts, berries, and plant stems. Their chisel-like teeth scrape away the tougher, outer bark, then slice off even bits of inner bark for consumption. Cellulose-eating bacteria in the porcupine's gut assist the digestion of plant material. Mothers and young feed together, but they are otherwise solitary feeders. Feeding generally occurs at night, but occasionally they will feed during the day.

Reproductive biology

Many male partners (despite the fact that at any one moment there is close relationship between the alpha pair). African wild dog females also produce very large litters averaging 10 pups. There is intense competition in this species between females to monopolize the help (in the form mainly of males) needed to raise their pups. At the other end of the spectrum there are cases in several fox species and most notably in the bat-eared fox of two females sharing a den with a single male. This is a form of polygyny in which a male has several female partners and it is also observed in red foxes. In contrast to the African wild dogs in which the regurgitation and hunting skills of the pack are crucial for survival of the pups, in the largely insectivorous bat-eared fox, the male can contribute little to his mate. An insect diet does not provide the nutritious surplus that can be regurgitated. In this species the male's main investment is to babysit while the females forage and produce...

Pernicious Anemia As A Subset Of Megaloblastic Anemias

Dietary deficiencies are rarely the cause of vitamin B12 deficiency, except for individuals who are strictly vegetarians or infants nursed by vegetarian mothers who are not supplementing their diets. Other potential sources of a deficiency in vitamin B12 are the malabsorption syndromes, which include any condition that affects B12 absorption. Lack of intrinsic factor may occur if a gas-trectomy or partial gastrectomy has occurred, and the parietal cells that secrete IF would invariably be affected, thereby affecting vitamin B12 absorption. Added to this is a condition called blind loop syndrome, in which there is an overgrowth of bacteria in a small pocket of malformed intestine. The microorganisms take up the vitamin B12, and it is not available to be absorbed. Although unusual, the fish tapeworm Diphyllobothrium latum may compete for vitamin B12 when it attaches to the intestine. Individuals who have this parasite exhibit signs of megaloblastic anemia, which can be corrected once...

Legumebased Fermented Foods

(a) Tempe (Tempeh) Kedele This is a fermented soybean-based food, popular with American vegetarians and also available in Canada, the West Indies, Holland, Indonesia, and Malaysia. It is supplied in the form of a white, moldy cake. The beans are cleaned, soaked, dehulled, partially cooked, drained, inoculated, packed in banana leaves or perforated plastic bags, and incubated for 2 days to produce tempe. A variety of fungi have been isolated from Malaysian tempe including various species of Aspergillus, Mucor, Penicillium, and Rhizopus by Yeoh and Merican (1977). In tempe of other origins bacteria such as Bacillus and Micrococcus sp. may also be present (b) Tempelike foods from broad beans and cowpeas Rhizopus arrhizus is used in the production of tempe products from broad beans. R. oligosporus, R. oryzae, and R. arrhizus are used for tempe products from cowpeas. Different Rhizopus species give products with different aromas and flavors (Djurtoft and Jensen 1977) (c) Oncom (Ontjon) A...

Noninsulindependent Type II diabetes mellitus

Subsequently, medical science differentiated NIDDM from IDDM. Further, insulin's actions on various metabolic pathways were elucidated. So, in 1982, Neel revised his hypothesis, arguing that certain populations had higher levels of genetically based insulin resistance. This genotype, he argued, had been acquired in response to hunter-gatherer diets which were relatively lower in carbohydrate, but higher in fat and meat, than were the predominantly vegetarian diets of our Australopithecine ancestors (Neel, 1982 Neel et al., 1998 Brand-Miller and Colagiuri, 1994).

Future trends

The World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research recommend plant-based diets consisting of a variety of fruits and vegetables, pulses and minimally processed starchy foods that are low in energy. Their report states that these diets may prevent a variety of cancers (and other chronic diseases) because of their inclusion of constituents that are directly protective, or because of the exclusion of constituents commonly found in foods of animal origin.9 Several other recommendations pertaining to diet and lifestyle are made concerning other known or putative risk factors. There are two major research challenges associated with these recommendations and those arising from other expert reports promoting similar guidelines for a healthy diet.

Nutritional ecology

Humans were eating wild plant foods from the origins of the subfamily Homininae about 6 mya until the inception of agriculture 11,000 years ago. Comparisons with omnivorous, widespread non-human primates such as baboons make it likely that the earliest hominins consumed a variety of plants and plant parts, and also consumed insects, eggs, and small animals like birds and hares. Bone chemistry analyzing stable carbon isotopes shows that South African australopithecines were omnivores. This is true even for the species Australopithecus robustus, which had been considered highly vegetarian since the mid-1950s. Neanderthal bone chemistry shows that these fossil humans were highly carnivorous, as one might expect, given that they lived in
