Most Americans and fitness experts think gaining muscle and “getting ripped” on a vegan diet is next to impossible. Comedian Mark Malkoff and celebrity personal trainer Robert Brace set out to prove them wrong. In just 28 days on a vegan diet, Mark, who has been on a plant-based diet since his teens, was able to lose 16 pounds of body fat, pack on lean muscle mass, obtain six-pack abs, and “get ripped.”
In addition to sticking to a strict exercise regimen and eating a healthy, plant-based diet full of vegetables, beans, nuts, and fruits, Mark supplemented his efforts with smoothies using PlantFusion.
