    I’ve been a vegetarian for the past 16 years. I am also a body builder, with sports and fitness always being in my blood. Due to vegetarianism in sports being so unpopular, at that time, I was forced to experiment on myself with the limited knowledge that I had acquired over the years. Finally I’ve come across a course that takes away all the guess work and provides you with well researched information ensuring that you can perform optimally on a meat-free diet. – Prishen Sivanarain
