As a plant based eater, you have a spectrum of competing voices, from people telling you that you’ll need to supplement, to people telling you that you DON’T need protein to build muscle, to people who claim to be perfectly healthy eating nothing but fruit.

In writing this guide, I didn’t seek out “extreme” people whose only evidence was their youtube channel and extreme opinions that are not backed up by anything.

Instead, I researched successful bodybuilders and athletes who were strong and muscular, and had the body’s to back up their words.

I took a broad view of the state of the science and look at what is proven, not what is claimed. I researched the real science of protein, digestion, and biochemical individuality.

Did you know that I trained bollywood actor R.Madhavan for the role of a boxing trainer for the film Saala Khadoos?

Mady is a vegetarian. He didn't take steroids also to build the body you see above.

It was all the training and diet principles that I shared with him that got him this look.

And those same principles are in this book. So get it to get a bollywood star physique!

Fun trivia:

Mady talks about me at about the 1:55 mark in this video (and I make a cameo):
