"It really empowers you to literally change who you are and change the way your brain works and how you think. That's amazing. Probably the number 1 thing - apart genetic diseases and big health problems - I think your psychology and having some sort of control over your mindset is probably the number 1 thing that's going to determine what you do in your life."

Leo Venus is a vegan, YouTuber, medical doctor, and athlete who is passionate about inspiring others to eat healthy and live an active lifestyle. Leo is also the brother of Jon Venus, also a vegan YouTuber / bodybuilder, who shares the same passion as his brother. Together, Leo and Jon have launched their online coaching services to help people transition to a plant based diet and reach their fitness goals. In this episode, we talked about how he got his family to go vegan, what inspired him to eat a plant based diet, his journey through medical school, and some diet and fitness tips for those who are looking to build muscle on a vegan diet.
