The lesson is a vegetarian or vegan diet can be effective for any Canadian looking to lose weight, build muscle and be more fit and attractive looking. Whether or not you chose to be vegan, vegetarian or eat in some combination including some animal protein, you will be amazed at how more whole plant foods in your diet can change your body and your way of thinking.
