120 - Body Building & Living a Moral Life with Nimai Delgado


It’s not often you come across a person who has graced the front cover of Men's Fitness magazine, and it’s even rarer when that exceptionally chiseled person happens to be vegan. In fact, today’s guest, Nimai Delgado, is the only one. Nimai is a former IFBB Pro in the Men’s Physique category, but there’s more to him than just muscles. Raised in a Hari Krishna farming community in the South until he was eight years old, Nimai is insightful, compassionate, and surprisingly relatable. He’s garnered nearly one million followers through his multiple Instagram accounts and uses his fame to teach others about the health benefits of a vegan diet. If it can power his kind of mass, it can certainly sustain the average human. This conversation roams from protein myths to ahimsa, public relationship break-ups to nutrition tips. Go for a walk, get to the gym, or start doing squats—you’ll want to be active when you listen to this show.  What we discuss in this episode: - Nimai’s relationship with protein and the misconception around macronutrients - Standard bodybuilding nutrition versus Nimai’s plant-based routine - Growing up in a Hari Krishna community in the South and the concept of ahimsa - His very public breakup during the pandemic  - Fitness and nutrition tips for the everyday person  - Finding your “WHY” - Nimai’s Buddha Bowl recipe - VeganFitness.com - Vedge Nutrition and the role of supplements - Follow Nimai on Instagram @nimai_delgado   Connect with Switch4Good - YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ2toqAmlQpwR1HDF_KKfGg - Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Switch4Good/ - Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/switch4good/ - Twitter - https://twitter.com/Switch4GoodOrg - Website - https://switch4good.org/

Ep. 32: Nimai Delgado - Building Muscle Without Meat


We say it all the time here at Plant-Strong - “Real Men Eat Plants.” With the smashing success of The Game Changers documentary, we proved, through science, that it is optimal to build muscle on a plant-based diet. If you still have to see it to believe it, then you’ll want to feast your eyes and ears on today’s guest. Nimai Delgado is a professional bodybuilder who has never eaten meat his entire life. That’s right, Nimai was raised vegetarian since birth and, in 2015, even while in peak training for bodybuilding competitions, went all in and became 100% plant-based. You know what? He’s been out-muscling his competition ever since. What started as Nimai’s personal mission to stay fit and healthy, has quickly turned into a career and a powerful myth-busting fitness and nutrition platform of spreading the benefits and possibilities of a plant-based lifestyle.

Nimai Delgado: Hinduism, Veganism, and Living Beyond the Norm

Align Podcast

In this episode of the Align Podcast, I chat with fitness influencer, Nimai Delgado, who shares his interesting journey through life from being an American raised in a Hindu community to becoming one of the most prominent vegan bodybuilders in the industry. We begin our conversation discussing the foundations of Hinduism and Niami’s view on God. Niami explains what it was like growing up in Southern America as a Hindu and how he made a personal shift from, “sharing less to fit in more” to embracing his full self. We also dive into his journey from being a vegetarian, to actively deciding to never eat animal products again. Niami explains common mistakes vegan’s make, as well as his best advice for thriving on a plant-based diet. After listening, you will not only be left with greater knowledge on a vegan diet, but you will also be left with a new perspective on embracing your difference in a world where you feel pressure to follow the norm.
