In Episode 76 I sit down with a good friend of mine, and PRO Vegan Body Builder, Nimai Delgado. In this episode we chat about some of the more common concerns and barriers that stop people from wanting to adopt a plant based diet or vegan lifestyle. This episode is also available on Nimai's podcast - Generation V which is an incredible show that I highly recommend you subscribe too.

Specifically we cover:

• Nutrient Deficiencies
• Carbohydrates & body fat
• Sugar & diabetes
• Soy foods & oestrogen
• Taste buds
• Giving up cheese
• Fitting in as a vegan
• Meal prepping
• Making a difference as just one person
• Where to start
• Food for brain health
• Randomised Controlled Trials
• Eating enough calories
• Gaining muscle with a plant based diet
• and much more

Hope you enjoy the episode friends - I think we covered some pretty commonly discussed topics that you will find quite interesting. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions for future Q & A's, Nimai (@Nimai_delgado) and myself (@plant_proof) would love to hear from you.

In case you are looking for a week away - I have decided to host a second plant based retreat this year with Journey Retreats October 4-10 in Bali. For now if you are interested in receiving more information about the retreat please email me ( or send me a DM on Instagram with your email and I will have the right people get in touch. The retreats are an incredible week - a mix of exercise, connecting with like minded people, guest speakers, cooking demonstrations, delicious plant based meals and snacks, massages and plenty of down time to relax by the pool or explore the local area.
