My philosophy on nutrition is centered around a whole food plant based diet. Eating whole, plant based foods lets you achieve your fitness goals without sacrificing your health. It’s possible to achieve and maintain a healthy weight in other ways, but it’s difficult to obtain the same level of overall health. There have been many studies showing that whole food plant based nutrition helps to reverse and prevent disease. There are also plenty of examples of athletes that follow plant based diets, busting the myth that you have to eat animal products to increase strength and build muscle.
