A Testimonial From PlantPure Challenge Winner Richard Hubbard

"I lost 150 pounds and have kept it off for almost 5 years now.

Initially, I lost the weight because I did not want to be put on blood pressure medication. This helped me learn about what foods I put in my body and what foods to avoid eating in my quest to lower my blood pressure.

After losing the weight, I was eating what I thought was the healthiest form of eating, but was dealing with a lot of loose skin. I was weight lifting but was not building much muscle.

It wasn't until I heard about vegan bodybuilders, especially Robert Cheeke, that I became aware of vegan bodybuilding. But I didn't want to just be vegan, I wanted the healthiest diet possible, which is how I stumbled upon whole food plant based.

I've been eating this way since September 6, 2016 and feel great. The muscles that I've built since going plant based tightened the skin in my arms considerably. I actually put on 20 pounds of muscle since then, which should make the question "where do you get your protein from?" obsolete!”
