    Ep 85. Travel Tips For Staying On Track

    It is inevitable that at some point while you are chasing your goal, you’ll be traveling. For some of us, it is non-negotiable and part of what we do for work.  For others, it is a desire that fulfills a need, like taking a vacation with a loved one.  There is no denying the fact that when you are out of your regular routine, things can get tricky and some variables are unknown.  What food will you have access to when you arrive?  What will social obligations look like?  How will you feel based on the trip itself?  In Episode 85 we give you the best of the best of our tips for staying on track while on the road.  PRODUCTS: Vegan Proteins Academy12 Week Vegan Fat Loss CourseFlexible Dieting for Vegans E-BookOne Time Custom Macro CalculationsMuscles by Brussels Tank TopsRESEARCH: MASS (Monthly Application In Strength Sport): MASS is one of our secret weapons and it continues to be an invaluable resource for us to keep up to date with the latest research.

    Ep 84. Measuring Your Fitness Progress

    We all want to get to our goal and typically we want to get there in a steady yet aggressive way, right?  That is what keeps you in the game.  There is a very important question you must ask yourself first before digging for results.  How do you measure your fitness progress?  What kind of biofeedback do you need when self-coaching or working with a coach?  Data collection (pics, measurements, and other stats) is important but it is just the start.  Knowing how to assess how you are feeling and what is happening as you get more invested in the process is exactly what this episode 84 is all about.  Tune in! PRODUCTS: Vegan Proteins Academy: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/online-coaching-membership/ 12 Week Vegan Fat Loss Course: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/12-week-fat-loss-course/ Flexible Dieting for Vegans E-Book: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/flexibledieting/ One Time Custom Macro Calculations: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/one-time-macro-calculation/ Muscles by Brussels Tank Tops: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/mussels-by-brussels-mens-tank-by-veganproteins/ RESEARCH: MASS (Monthly Application In Strength Sport): bit.ly/vpmass MASS is one of our secret weapons and it continues to be an invaluable resource for us to keep up to date with the latest research.

    Ep 83. Dani's Real-Life Story

    Ep 83. Dani's Real-Life Story

    Over the past 15 or so years, we have aimed to be fully transparent and genuine about who we are outside of work.  When you are the face of what you do, it’s important to let that shine through.  That’s how we felt it would be possible to have a better connection with you.  It’s not reasonable to share everything though when our focus is on nutrition and fitness.  Which is why today’s episode is such an important one.  Tune in as we focus more on the person behind the voice as we take a deep dive into Dani’s real-life story.   PRODUCTS: Vegan Proteins Academy: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/online-coaching-membership/ 12 Week Vegan Fat Loss Course: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/12-week-fat-loss-course/ Flexible Dieting for Vegans E-Book: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/flexibledieting/ One Time Custom Macro Calculations: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/one-time-macro-calculation/ Muscles by Brussels Tank Tops: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/mussels-by-brussels-mens-tank-by-veganproteins/ RESEARCH: MASS (Monthly Application In Strength Sport): bit.ly/vpmass MASS is one of our secret weapons and it continues to be an invaluable resource for us to keep up to date with the latest research.

    Ep 82. Negative Self-talk

    What pushes you to be your best in everything that you do?  For many of us, there is an inner and/or outer voice that tells us we aren’t good enough no matter what we do or how we do it.  Maybe you talk yourself down in conversation or under your breath.  While this kind of chatter may seem to help you in some ways, what does negative self-talk do to your mental health?  What kind of impact does it have on how you feel about your potential successes long-term? PRODUCTS: Vegan Proteins Academy: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/online-coaching-membership/ 12 Week Vegan Fat Loss Course: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/12-week-fat-loss-course/ Flexible Dieting for Vegans E-Book: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/flexibledieting/ One Time Custom Macro Calculations: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/one-time-macro-calculation/ Muscles by Brussels Tank Tops: https://www.veganproteins.com/proteins-more-shop/mussels-by-brussels-mens-tank-by-veganproteins/ RESEARCH: MASS (Monthly Application In Strength Sport): bit.ly/vpmass MASS is one of our secret weapons and it continues to be an invaluable resource for us to keep up to date with the latest research.

Andrea Engel ,

Hands Down Favorite Podcast!

As a new vegan bodybuilder, I get so much out of every podcast. The real talk about body image and potential pitfalls help me make better decisions and have compassion for myself. I love knowing that they share a vegan perspective. Giacamo and Dani complement one another and give unique perspectives. Each episode has helpful information and is well laid out. Sound quality is great, too!

Always a wealth of information.

I really enjoy the Muscles by Brussels podcast. Every episode always has a large amount of information and you can tell they have put a lot of time and thought into it. They keep it real and educate us at the same time!

Keep it up!
