Want to ditch meat, but not muscle? Commit to vegan values without sacrificing your strength? Balance optimal fitness with a plant-based diet using this lifestyle guide. Former firefighter Edric Kennedy-Macfoy didn't believe that was possible to go vegan and stay fit when he first began to think about veganism. He was a committed carnivore, with a fridge full of animal protein. His job required peak physical strength, so building bulk was essential. Abandoning meat was the last thing he expected of his future. That all changed after watching an eye-opening documentary, and overnight he became a vegan. Years of study and research later, Edric is now a health and fitness coach helping people transition into a vegan lifestyle, while keeping or building their physical strength.
