    • Ross and Hugo Turner, a pair of identical twins known as "the adventure guinea pigs," decided to compare a vegan and omnivorous diet and found some striking differences in the results.
    • The twin on the vegan diet had more energy and lost body fat, while his meat-eating counterpart gained more muscle, but also more fat.
    • They also noticed a difference in their gut microbiomes, the beneficial bacteria insider the body that might explain how various diets can prevent chronic disease.

    You missed the part in the article (at least the one I read) about the vegan losing his libido...

    But really an interesting experiment!

  4. I read this article yesterday but from what I remember: A vegan diet will make you skinny, weak and your 10lb sausage will disappear. What the hell good is that? OMG

    But if you get really fat you have the same problem. I heard that, no personal experience.:D

    If you have Netflix...Watch the documentary called “game changer”. Lots of top athletes going vegan.. and doing very well if not better! Very interesting.

    ".........losing his libido..........."!
    Considering I'm in the UK and we're under a second lockdown and all you can do is go out and buy food or jog round the park once a day perhaps I should give this vegan thing a try. I'm climbing the walls here lads..............
