Today, there are a myriad of diets for consumers to choose from. Some people chose to follow a diet where they exclude certain foods groups, such as meat, and others choose to consume a diet with no moderation whatsoever. This literature review examines the vegan diet, and one that can be portrayed as a healthy standard diet, to analyze dietary needs of a strength training athlete. This review will not conclude which diet is better, rather, an approach for finding gaps within one’s diet, relative to their activity level.
