My husband, who also was discouraged with the belief that vegans CAN have muscle, looked through the book at Robert's pictures of himself and was in shock. He was wanting to mass build but wanted my help (in having his food ready and prepped for him). I made a deal with my husband, "I will make all the food for you to have a successful mass build and we'll workout together, BUT, you will have to do it all vegan." Without hesitation, he agreed! :) So with the help of Robert Cheeke's book, my husband gained weight and muscle on a vegan bodybuilding diet. I'm thankful for the book and for Robert's knowledge. My husband believes that vegan CAN mass build, gain healthy weight, nice sized muscles and get all the protein they need without eating animal products :)
Now my husband and I eat vegan together, we weight train together and we both believe in Robert's book!!!
Thank you so much Robert!!!!!! And thank you for sending my husband a signed book :) We keep that copy, NICE!
Perhaps most helpful is the section where Robert details what he actually does for a workout, and how he preps beforehand and how he cools down afterward. He gives some explanation about each exercise in layman's terms, which is helpful for me due to my limited experience. All throughout the book, he provides concrete information and backs it up with real world experience.
Robert's first tip for improving your work ethic: Get rid of your TV. Nice.
Robert is an incredibly inspiring person, and when meeting him you can't help but get caught up in his glowing demeanor. His book provides great assistance for people looking for inspiration and real knowledge about what they can do to get in shape and stay that way. I firmly believe that having strong, fit vegans in the public spotlight provides countless benefits, for people, for the planet, and for the animals. I'm on my own road to becoming a fit ambassador for veganism. I am already seeing real results, and I owe a lot of my motivation to Robert.
1.) Robert Cheeke REALLY loves himself
2.) Eat protein and lots of it
There you go.
If you have any knowledge of fitness whatsoever, you will not learn much groundbreaking new information in this book unfortunately. I really wanted to like this book, and to learn from it. Unfortunately it is not really about Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness, it is really about the author and his accomplishments. Not a page goes by without him mentioning that he has won bodybuilding competitions, amongst other accomplishments [including writing the very book you are reading!]. I really felt like the book was more of a personal shrine to himself rather than any kind of primer on the vegan or natural bodybuilding industry. Even things like meal plans are very topline chapters, where he mentions he eats a lot of burritos and sandwiches. This means very little! A burrito comprised of what? Get specific and tell us why. What components would a professional vegan bodybuilder put in a burrito to optimize his performance? I feel like there was really an opportunity here for someone to give an in depth look at bodybuilding within a vegan lifestyle, and unfortunately all we got was a lot of someone patting himself on the back.
