What it means to be Plant-Based in 2020 EP: 2/3

 

Welcome back to the Fundamentally FIT three-part series looking at Plant-Based diets.

Back in Episode one, I was looking at some of the ethical and environmental more people are being tempted by this style of diet. I also look back on my experience of helping people make large scale lifestyle change and why this might be a challenge for the mainstream population.

Here in Episode two, I am looking at the many different definitions and ways in which you could adopt a plant-based diet in 2020. I take a look at the number of people adopting these diets to see if they match the media attention. Finally, I also explore some of the key touchpoints you need to be aware of and research further if you are adopting one of the main plant-based diets.

Coming Soon: Episode Three – Plant-Powered Endurance and the Game Changers.
