So you want to go vegan for all of the right reasons, but you want to be able to put in all of the hard work to obtain or maintain your rockin’ body. So how do you do that when you have to give up meat, fish, eggs, and dairy, long considered the cornerstones of a healthy diet and specifically our main sources of protein.

In Men’s Health, Macaela MacKenzie shines the spotlight on Jon Venus, a bodybuilder and fitness trainer with more than 350 Youtube subscribers who adopted a vegan lifestyle a few years ago and is in the best health he has ever enjoyed.

In the article, Venus explains that “When I changed to a 100 percent plant-based diet, I noticed countless improvements to my performance in the gym—much to my surprise,” Venus says. It started with his energy levels. “I was feeling sore less often and always had the energy to give 100 percent effort in my workout sessions,” he says of the first three months of eating vegan meals.”
