Is weightlifting and bodybuilding possible on a raw vegan diet? Forty-plus-year veteran natural bodybuilder Charlie Abel says it’s very possible and, in his 50s, has the physique many in their 20s would envy. In The Raw Food Bodybuilding Training Manual, he discusses how to successfully transition to and stay on a raw vegan diet while satisfying your protein requirements from a purely plant-based diet.
Charlie also outlines the high-intensity method of bodybuilding, showing how you don’t need to spend long hours in a gym to build muscles, and how 30 minutes or less three times per week is the optimum training protocol. Photos are included.
Charlie knows his stuff. He is a fitness trainer, former fitness center owner, featured Living Nutrition and Vibrance writer, Rawstock presenter and now an inspiring coach living in Hawaii. Muscle up and enjoy superior health on 100 percent whole raw foods and no supplements with a master! This second edition was released in January 2012.
