Thriving On a Plant-Based Diet


Dr. Michael Klaper's Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet

Learn how to thrive on a plant-based diet! In this extraordinary presentation, Dr. Michael Klaper provides practical guidance for a successful transition to a health-sustaining, plant-based diet and explores the environmental implications that make such a successful evolution essential for the global society.

“I tried the vegan diet and it just didn’t make me feel good. Why?”

In theory, a 100% plant-based diet should provide all the necessary nutrients for any human being to thrive. Yet, many people attempt to nourish themselves on purely vegan foods and find they are failing to thrive – often returning to animal-based foods as a result.

Why is this happening? Are we Homo sapiens programmed to be carnivores? Is meat essential for radiant health? If not, how can a plant-based diet work for everyone? Dr. Klaper answers these questions and much more.

Learn what to do and what not to do. Learn how to thrive on a plant-based diet!

“You do not need to eat a bull to be as strong as one!”

This video is for anyone, regardless of your current diet and level of experience.

Duration: 100 Minutes. Updated and re-recorded in November 2015.
