About the Authors
Derek Tresize and Marcella Torres are the husband and wife team of competitive vegan bodybuilders behind Vegan Muscle and Fitness. Owners of Richmond, Virginia’s only plant-based personal training studio, Root Force Personal Training, the pair seeks to promote a fit and active plant-powered lifestyle and shatter the perception that strength and athleticism can’t be achieved with a plant-based diet.
“Ok, so there are quite a few books and websites out by vegan athletes. Guys like Rich Roll, Frank Medrano, Brendan Brazier and so on. This is an awesome trend and has inspired even hardcore meat eaters like my former self to switch to a 100% plant-based diet. But while they’re incredibly inspirational and even have some recipes and sample days of eating (for that person of course) there has been a big gaping hole in terms of a simple how-to. They leave you hanging by basically leaving it to you to figure out how much of what to eat for your goals.
Enter Vegan Muscle and Fitness Guide to Bodybuilding Competitions. It gets right down to business. Simple formulas to determine how many [calories] to eat and what your macros should be. How to eat and lift to gain muscle with minimal fat gain. How to cut fat step by step, week by week to lower your body fat and get shredded. No vagueness, it’s a manual. And of course, everyone is different and responds differently. But that doesn’t mean say try every approach. Marcella and Derek give you a proven method and mention how to experiment based on your results. And it’s detailed in how to, not just ‘If this doesn’t work try reducing calories’ it’s ‘if this doesn’t work drop 200 more calories and measure again after a week. If that doesn’t work add more of this type of cardio.’
I love that it’s light on supplements and heavy on real food. I love that it’s a no shortcuts or gimmicks method. It’s about doing it right for specific goals but also lifelong health. Highly, highly recommended.” – Stephen A. Means, Amazon
