5 Tips for Plant-Based Health and Fitness
Seek support from those that share the same values as you do. It’s always more fun when you have cheerleaders around you.

Crowd in: Focus on trying to add as much high ROI* (Return on Investment) calories as possible. By doing so, you start being more conscious of what you eat and you will also add a lot more nutrients into your day.
Crowd out: Once you start adding in more high ROI calories, you will automatically crowd out the not so good foods (animal based products, processed and refined foods).
Move for life: Find a modality of movement that you love, something you find enjoyment in. Shoot beyond an aesthetic goal. How you look should be a by-product of how you feel and the love of movement.
Find community: Seek support from those that share the same values as you do. Be it online forums, local meet ups, a run group, crossfit box or dance class. It’s always more fun when you have cheerleaders around you.
Unleash: Set little goals out of your comfort zone. Be it your first 5km fun run, a local swim meet, a hike up machu picchu, set a specific and time bound goal to work towards. By doing so you will unleash your best self!
*High ROI - Whole plant-based foods are naturally high in nutrients for their caloric content. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts and seeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants and fibre. They too are free from cholesterol and saturated fat.
