This is just an uninformed generalization on vegan diets. It's quite possible to workout and add lean muscle assuming proper complementary proteins, and amounts are accounted. This does
mean more work on the person's part. I'm the opposite spectrum of vegan, I can't imagine my world without meat, and dairy products. However, take any basic nutritional class and you'll realize that a vegan diet doesn't prevent a person from achieving reasonable amounts of lean muscle mass. I'd guess he could do more studying on vegan diets, it's quite a commitment that's not easy to do right.
