Episode #110

In this episode of What the Fat, I talk about the upcoming documentary Game Changer. In it, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about not necessarily needing meat in order to be a pro-athlete and how a plant based diet can be just as beneficial. I challenge the concept of a plant based diet being healthier and better for the environment. I take a look at more than just the surface level arguments and dig deep in order to uncover the truth and present the facts.


Enjoy The Show!



Are you actually saving animals by eating plants? I take a look at how meat based diets might not leave as much of a carbon footprint as a plant based diet. I also uncover common misconceptions that people have when it comes to the consumption of meat versus plants.
