Personally, my dietary preference is for optimized psychoemotional and physical health, and longevity. I'd not be surprised if prioritizing a diet and lifestyle that leads to exceptional endurance or strength compromises longevity.
Settle down Friendly, Noah does power lifting from what I've read. And what's AOWA? Do you mean AWF?
As for wearing a badge, I'd say Melbourne Vegan Strength is a bloody big badge, and PR juggernaut. The MVS boys would get more publicity if they participated in AWF events, and got to the Commonwealth and Olympic games.
Yes, Zep has muscles on his muscles, kind of.
Look, I am not dumping on veganism or vegos. I think the evidence is indisputable Western lifestyle diseases are lower in these groups.

And I am a bit confused about durianrider. Why does he go around yelling he eats 30 bananas a day, when he eats a whole lot of other stuff too? bit of confusing message. And his gf made a video explaining she takes B12 injections regularly. Does anyone have a link that shows what their complete diet is, and what it is they promote specifically?
