Are you thinking of going vegetarian/vegan to improve your body, health and wellbeing or are you currently following this lifestyle and want to achieve optimal performance, health and body shape?

Fitness vs. fat loss.
Did you know that Fitness doesn’t always result in fat loss. And often if it does, this fat loss is short lived.
For example there are lots of people who can cycle for 100km or run 5-10km but still have the same body fat % as when they started training. Often their body fat % increases too.
