"It doesn't take a lot to open a person's heart to these facts."

-Dr. Neal Barnard

Increasing our knowledge is a potent way to increase our ability to follow our truest path. Part of following our paths, whoever we may be, is to not poison our bodies. The way to not poison our bodies is to live and eat vegan. Today I am honored to sit down and speak with Dr. Neal Barnard about everything vegan. Today we are not only increasing our knowledge, but also following our path.

Dr. Barnard has led numerous studies on the relation between diet and health/sickness and is president of the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. At the PCRM he leads programs advocating for preventive medicine, good nutrition, and higher ethical standards in research. Dr. Barnard has shared his extensive knowledge through numerous books and articles. Today he shares even more of his knowledge as we discuss how to adopt a vegan lifestyle, why it is a lifestyle and not simply a diet, and about his new book, The Cheese Trap. We delve into how much this movement has spread, but also how we can reach more people, especially those who are vehemently against this way of live. We also discuss the health benefits of eating vegan and how it can revolutionize the athletic ability of any athlete.

So whether you are vegan or not, be open. I strongly believe that today's episode will greatly benefit you to optimize and revolutionize the way that you live your life. Enjoy.
