Arnold Schwarzenegger Claims To Be On An 80% Plant-Based Diet For The Past Five Years

Arnold Schwarzenegger continues to be a huge voice in bodybuilding and fitness. He sculpted one of the best physiques of all-time in the gym using some massive lifts. Out of the gym, his lifestyle was up for the challenge and he has continued some of his diet tricks to this day. Schwarzenegger recently discussed his plant-based diet, which he has been following for the last five years.

Schwarzenegger has been standing by this diet plan at an 80% clip. In his recent newsletter, the legendary bodybuilder discussed the benefits of this diet along with some of the foods that are difficult to turn down.

““I HAVE BEEN ABOUT 80% PLANT-BASED FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS OF MY LIFE. EVEN THOUGH I STILL EAT MEAT SOMETIMES, BECAUSE I CAN’T RESIST A JUICY STEAK WHEN I HAVE FRIENDS OVER OR A CRISPY WIENER SCHNITZEL IN AUSTRIA, I MOSTLY EAT PLANT-BASED BECAUSE IT IS BETTER FOR MY OVERALL HEALTH, AND AS MY FRIEND JIM CAMERON TAUGHT ME, BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE THE CLEARING OF FORESTS AND THE RAISING OF ANIMALS FOR MEAT CAUSES SO MUCH POLLUTION,” ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER SAID.

Arnold Schwarzenegger made it clear that he is not only following this diet plan because of his health. He is also interested in the impact that it has on the environment. He mentions that pollution is a major factor in the United States. Schwarzenegger claims that eating less meat means that less and less forests will be cleared, ultimately creating more food for animals.

Along with the impact that it has on the environment, Schwarzenegger discussed what the diet has done for his health. His cholesterol is very low because of it and this has helped him feel better all-around.

“MY BAD CHOLESTEROL NUMBER IS SO LOW THAT MY DOCTOR THOUGHT I MIGHT BE A DIFFERENT PERSON AND FEEL HEALTHIER AND YOUNGER OVERALL. IF ANY OF YOU HAVE RECENTLY GONE VEGAN, WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE RECIPES? AND IF ANY OF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT GOING VEGAN, WHAT’S STOPPING YOU? SEND ME AN EMAIL WITH THE SUBJECT VEGAN AND LET ME KNOW!”

This is not a diet that Arnold Schwarzenegger followed during his competition days. There are some critics who believe this would not work for active athletes. Now that Schwarzenegger has been off the stage for years and years now, it is the perfect time to give this diet a shot. It seems to be working for him.

This is the perfect diet for a person looking to take in less meat and drop cholesterol levels. For an athlete who wants to maintain mass, specifically bodybuilders, this might not be the direction to go while competing.
