Unraveling Gym Bro Myths

As your typical gym bro, I was surround by meat heads in the gym telling me to eat more chicken, drink 2 litres of milk per day to get bigger and stronger?

Doesn't work like that unfortunately...

In 2014 I discovered a very controversial YouTuber by the name of Vegan Gains, he had the largest influence on my decision to go vegan.

For 2 years he popped at the bubble wrap blanket I'd put around myself my whole life...

Vegan Gains' Influence: Popping the Bubbles of Ignorance

  • Protein Tho POP
  • B12 Tho POP
  • Lions Tho POP

Eventually I had no more bubbles to pop, exposing me to my own hypocrisy and stuck at a cross road...

Continue being a hypocrite or change something about myself.

Vegan for the Animals: A Journey Beyond Self-Interest

Over 6 years on, originally telling myself it was for environmental reasons, I am vegan for the animals.

Although I work in the health and fitness industry, it's important to outline that going vegan is not for health or environmental reasons.

That's just an added bonus.

Being vegan means you stand against unnecessary violence and suffering.

That being said, I love helping people do this while also improving some or even all health markers.

The Plant Power Academy: Bridging Health and Compassion

I run and own The Plant Power Academy...
