    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?

    if you put in the amount of work he does (physical and dietary), you'll look like him too
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Amazing genetics -- I'd agree on that.
    Amazing pre-vegan life/diet -- I'm not to keen on that. He's been Vegan since 1996 that's almost a decade and a half.
    Expecto Patronum!!!

    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 .

    If we went back to hunter gatherer living then at least 3/4 of the population would die in a month. Yeah, the human race is sooo far above animals (sarcasm).
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
