Arnold Schwarzenegger has adopted the plant-based diet in recent years and has been advocating the positive side of it ever since. Mr. Olympia, who has been a constant supporter of this diet from there on, shared a lot of info about the personal health and fitness benefits gained from this and believe to be a “real man” one doesn’t need to eat meat.
