    I usually look down on Vegan and plant-based diets...

    ...well not in front of those who practice it. I kind of like frown in the back of my head. However, this powerflifter is making me look at it with a different perspective (and somewhat makes me confuse about my current regimen). Thoughts, anyone?

    There's nothing to say that you can't get in shape without eating animal products...

    My main gripe with vegans is that they tend to assume they're healthier than everyone else just because they don't eat animal products... Then they go wolf down a tube of Oreo's and judge us lowly, unhealthy meat eaters.

    "Meeting my daily protein goal of 175 grams (or higher) helps to keep me lean and satisfied."

    "For protein, I eat beans, tofu, nuts, tempeh, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, seitan, rice and pea protein powder, veggie analog meats usually with tofu and wheat protein, sometimes quinoa, and oats, and a variety of green veggies, like broccoli, spinach, kale, chard, and spirulina."

    Anyone else wonder just how short of goal he falls without protein powder? A bodybuilder is a bodybuilder is a bodybuilder. A Crossfit style workout, hard training, a mostly whole foods diet with supplemental protein and good genetics makes it pretty easy for any otherwise healthy person to achieve that kind of body composition.

    Yeah, sufficient protein and calories with complex exercises. Nothing of note really. I agree with one of his favorite quotes though:

    “Reject the anthropocentric falsehood that maintains the oppressive hierarchy of mankind over the animals. It’s time to set them free.” — Earth Crisis

    Free range is delicious .

    he's the only vegan i have ever seen who looks like that! he does admit to still having a sweet tooth and says men should not be afraid of soy. i do agree with some of the vegan ideas like eating lots of produce but once we get to grains and legumes i am gone. each to their own but i will stick with grass fed steak as well.

    Why wouldnt he look like this? He obviously gets all he needs. I would never eat tons of soy and beans if i can just eat a steak (or at least a bunch of eggs for a vegetarian) and if an animal has to die for that so be it.
