Building Your Body on a Plant-Based Diet

Today I welcomed “Two-time “Natural Bodybuilding Champion” Robert Cheeke, to chat about his book, healthy recipes and fabulous fitness tips for getting and keeping fit. The effervescent Robert is an best-selling author of the book “Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness, The Complete Guide to Building Your Body on a Plant-Based Diet.” He is one of VegNews Magazine's Most Influential Vegan Athletes and he tours North America giving talks about his story transforming from a skinny farm kid, to champion vegan bodybuilder. Currently Robert works full-time running Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness on, which includes writing books and filming documentaries. Robert lives in Portland and continues to spread the vegan way of life leading by example as an accomplished vegan athlete.


Robert Cheeke talked about the high protein content in many plant-based foods. He shared his list of foods that are rich in essential fatty acids, such as hemp seeds. Jazzy! In addition, Robert shared his ideas on how to achieve your goals and dreams in life! Wonderful stuff. For more information about Robert please visit and

For those of you looking to tune into another informative segment of "Ask Dr. Pam," she will next be featured on this program on June 1st! Right now Dr. Pam Popper is busy traveling the country helping to promote the new feature film “Forks Over Knives” which, examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The film opens in theatres on May 6th, 2011. If you’d like to learn more about “Forks Over Knives,” click here.
