    I have heard that the doco is good. Amazing to see that Arnie went full vegan.

    Nothing wrong with going vegan as long as you know what you're doing. It is difficult to follow though. You have to be careful that your vitamin B12 levels don't drop too much.

    Don't think I could go full vegan though. I'd miss meat too much.

    Wouldn't it be ok to eat vegan say 80% of the time and occasionally have some meat etc.

    I think all those issues on game changer is because people completely overload themselves on meat .. but in moderation would probably be ok.

    Same with alcohol, occasionally won't do you any harm but all the time would kill you.

    Thoughts? 5-6 days a week vegan and 1-2 days meat/eggs/dairy

    I love meat just as much as the next whore does :tearsofjoy:

    I've gone opposite with my diet just eatting lots of proteins and carbohydrates. But I'm trying to add more body mass not lose it.

    I agree but at the same time meat is just bad for you, the thing is that it’s common sense that anything from the ground is better for you and in a short time i feel healthier and have more energy but “The game changers” is a real eye opener

    If you watch “the game changers” going vegan doesn’t mean you lose it,there is a powerlifter on there

    Think people are leaning towards calling it plant based rather than vegan.

    Each to their own.. but like us non vegans, I just wish they wouldn’t preach their beliefs all over the place..!! If they let it be.. then power too them. They just piss me off lol. We don’t need to know or care.

    I once knew a vegan body builder (friend of my BIL). I'd imagine he has to be very specific with his diet re the protein side if things.

    The number of people complaining about vegans preaching on the internet far outnumbers actual vegans preaching TBH.

    There has been a ridiculous amount of studies carried out on diets and they have found that the most effective diet comes down to a few lines:

    Eat food, mainly plants, not too much

    Meat has decent vitamins and minerals including higher concentrates of iron and Vitamin B12, but it's also higher in calories. So cutting back on meat will always be a good thing. Plant based diet helps for this but if you don't want to put in effort in taking the right supplements and everything, just add a bit of meat and eggs into your diet. Not much, just a bit. 50g-100g of red meat per week is plenty. You can go a bit higher on the other meats. 1-2 eggs per day is good too.
