My friend and fellow fitness enthusiast Stic, of the hip hop duo Dead Prez, was recently featured in a documentary called "The Veg Effect". This documentary follows 5 different individuals who have adopted, on various levels, a vegetarian diet and lifestyle.
Stic is 100% veg and recently challenged himself to gain 20 lbs. of lean muscle on a whole food, plant-based diet, void of supplements, pills and powders - just straight up food! He did his strength training with me and his wife, and holistic nutritionist, Afya put together his nutrition plan and was a complete wizard in the kitchen. Because of this, and his dedication to the plan, he accomplished the 20 lb. gain in 2.5 months, one and a half months faster than his goal!
This eventually became our book, Eat Plants, Lift Iron which you can learn more about by clicking here!
Our story was a small part of he and his family's feature in the Veg Effect documentary, and it was a huge honor to be invited to be part of it!

About The Veg Effect:
"This isn't some scare-you-into-a-rage film about the food industry. Or about regretting yesterday.
This is a documentary series about how we can change the world by answering one simple question: What are we going to eat today?
Directed by Alison Klayman (Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry) for MorningStar Farms®, the series follows 5 real stories, from real people with very different lives, each choosing to make a difference with their own personal way to veg."
The documentary series is currecntly available on: vimeo, YouTube, dailymotion, amazon, iTunes, and EatingWell.
Stay Strong AND Healthy and find YOUR #waytoveg!
