【ビーガン王子】Nimai Delgadoって誰? *イケメン注意

2017年10月10日

Ok people, it's time we put this "you need meat to build muscle" BS argument to rest. With veganism on the rise, many athletes and bodybuilders are switching over to the green side 😁👍🏼 As soon as they do, they talk about how energized they feel, how quickly they recover, how easy it is to build muscle, and how their overall health has vastly improved. BUT, there is still a popular argument that these newly plant based athletes have built their physique on a meat based diet and are merely maintaining their gains on plants. I am here to prove these folks wrong. I have NEVER eaten meat. You read that right, NEVER. I was raised a lacto-vegetarian (dairy products & veggies) since birth and have never eaten chicken, beef, fish, turkey, sausage, etc. I was able to build a solid foundation of muscle while being vegetarian, but it wasn't until I went fully plant based a few years ago that I built most of my gains. In fact, all of the bodybuilding contests that I've done were on a plant based diet and I've managed to win several overalls in both the INBA and NPC leagues, a pro status, and top 5 finishes in the IFBB league. I'm not done either. Mark my words, I WILL make it to Olympia next year. So please, can we put this argument to rest already? #sorrynotsorryfortherant #veganbodybuilding #isthefuture

皆さん、このイケメンをご存知ですか?

彼の名はNimai Delgado
IFBB Proに所属するビーガンボディービルダーです!

どうせ肉食で付けた筋肉を菜食で維持しているだけなんでしょ?

いいえ、彼は違います。(僕は残念ながら。)

インスタの写真の通り、Never eaten meat. 肉を一切食べたことがない生まれながらのベジタリアンなんです。

肉を食べずにも筋肉は成長する、ということを彼が彼自身の肉体で証明しているのです。




生い立ち

そんな彼の生い立ちをまずは見てみましょう。

彼はアメリカ合衆国、南ミシシッピに生まれました。
ヒンドゥー教徒の両親に彼はベジタリアンとして教育されますが、20代前半の頃に倫理的観点より動物性食品の摂取を一切拒絶し、ビーガンというライフスタイルを選択しました。

LSU(ルイジアナ州立大学)の機械工学部を最終学歴とし、現在は主にプロのボディービルダー(賞金稼ぎ)やフィットネストレーナーとして活動しています。

もちろん、自身のSNS(Instagram / Facebook)やWebサイトを使い、ビーガンというライフスタイルのベネフィットを発信しているビーガン啓蒙者の一人でもあります。




過去の戦績

彼は主にIFBB Pro主催のコンテストでMen’s Physiqueのカテゴリーにてエントリーしています。

READ👉🏼Exactly 1 year ago I did what so many people told me was impossible. I earned my IFBB pro status at the biggest and toughest pro-qualifying show of the year. I did it my way and didn't have to sacrifice my beliefs. I did it naturally and I did it fully plant based without meat, eggs, fish, or dairy. I didn't listen to anyone's comments about how I "had" to take this or "had" to eat that in order to reach the pro level. The ONLY person I listened to was myself and my coach @omarv33. He believed in me just as much as I believed in me and helped guide me. I knew deep down that if I put my mind to something, I would do it. I'm not writing this to brag or anything of that sort. I'm writing this because fear and conformity kills more dreams than anything else. It's ok go against the grain and still accomplish your goal without having to dilute who you are as a person. Own that shit. Be proud of who you are and later on, after you accomplished what you set out to accomplish, those SAME doubters will come to asking for advice and how you did it! #truth #flashbackfriday #teamventura

📝 Long Story Alert I've been pretty blessed to capture some "awakening" moments in my life. This is no exception. After a nauseating 2 hour taxi ride, a 2 hour hike over lava rocks, and a few monkey attacks, my friend and I managed to make it up to the peak of Mt. Batur, an active volcano in the heart of Indonesia. After enjoying the sunrise & the best cup of Indonesian coffee I've ever had, we talked about life and everything we both had going on. I was at a crossroads and I came to the realization that I needed to trust my intuition more. I had known for quite some time what decisions I had to make in order to move forward with my life but I had kept putting them off because I was complacent but at the same time extremely unhappy. The moment I came back home I decided to make those changes and six months later my life is on a totally different path than before and the future couldn't be brighter. My point is that you should never suppress your intuition. Always listen to your gut and follow your heart because you know what is best for you and sometimes we put our personal needs aside for other people and sacrifice our own happiness. #thoughtoftheday

If you need to "escape" from your life then maybe you need to reevaluate how you're living. #livemore #stressless

イケメンめ。。。。


多くのビーガンアスリートがいる中で、やっぱり生まれながらのベジタリアンである彼の注目度は別格ではないでしょうか。

是非、ビーガン代表として今後も頑張って活動して頂きたいですね。

頑張れ!ビーガン王子!
