I Haven't Eaten Meat Since!!!
10 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see this film at the Ahrya Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills last month. This film does a great job dispelling the myth that elite athletes (and non-athletes alike) need animal protein to fuel their bodies and participate at high levels. From the Ground Up utilizes interviews from extreme endurance athletes, to explosive combat athletes, such as football players and boxers/MMA fighters to outline their journey following a plant-based lifestyle. A must watch!
