Arnold Schwarzenegger Supports Plant-Based Diet

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been following a primarily plant-based diet for the past five years and recently stated that it has helped him drop his LDL readings dramatically.

Schwarzenegger hailed his “80 percent vegan diet” in a recent email message, explaining that it made him feel “healthier and younger overall.”

He also feels that eating largely plant-based has helped him lower his LDL cholesterol levels, which is connected to high-risk heart disease and is also known as “bad” cholesterol.

Plant-Based Benefits

Because they include large amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol, regular intake of some animal-based foods, such as processed meats and dairy products, is associated to increased blood cholesterol levels.

Adopting a plant-based diet rich in fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and nuts, on the other hand, is thought to be an important element in lowering cholesterol levels.

In fact, when compared to omnivorous diets, a recent meta-analysis of 49 research indicated that vegan and vegetarian diets were connected to reduced levels of total and LDL cholesterol.

“My bad cholesterol number is so low that my doctor thought I might be a different person,” stated Schwarzenegger.

The habitual gym-goer promotes plant-based diets and has spoken out on the health and environmental benefits of eating more vegetables.

The Influence of Celebrities

The power of celebrity influence cannot be questioned when it comes to promoting a message, and this includes sharing vegan or plant-based ideas.

For many years, Arnold Schwarzenegger, widely regarded as the greatest and most renowned bodybuilder of all time, has been promoting the benefits of plant-based nutrition and debunking protein consumption fallacies.

Along the way, he has encouraged a new generation of vegan bodybuilders to use a plant-based diet to gain muscle growth.

Schwarzenegger also appears in The Game Changers, a James Cameron-executive-produced documentary about how a plant-based lifestyle affects overall health.
