If you want to make healthy, nutritional choices but don't necessarily subscribe to militant ethical views on treatment of animals; if you want simple scientific reasoning on the benefits of lowering your intake of animal-based food, this Lesson will explain the lifestyle of being vegan and how to start, what to eat. It also gives a background on athletes whose performance does not suffer and in fact can improve even when drastically changing their diets.
