Building Muscle and Losing Fat on a Vegan Diet with Marcella Torres and Derek Tresize

EP222

Resistance training can be an enigma, and many of us have heard for years that building muscle on a plant-based diet is difficult if not impossible.

But on today’s episode of NMA Radio, we chat with Marcella Torres and Derek Tresize, former competitive body builders who know what it takes to bulk up, and they do it on a completely vegan diet (and with a family!). Their resistance training philosophy has helped countless people improve their lives by getting stronger, losing weight, and staying injury-free — even as they age.

If you’re looking to build muscle, but aren’t really sure you can do it on a whole-foods, plant-based diet, check out today’s conversation with Marcella and Derek.

Here’s just some of what we talk about in this episode:

  • What vegans need to know about building muscle.
  • Do plant-based athletes need supplements to get stronger?
  • How strength training can improve your life.
  • Body-weight exercise routines… are they enough?
  • Doug’s experience using Derek and Marcella’s plan.
  • Is being sore good or bad?
