DARIA DEPTULA SHOWS MIAMI WHAT VEGAN LOOKS LIKE

Q: Tell us the story of how you got turned on to plant-based fitness.
I’ve always been into health and fitness since I can remember. Working out for me
was a part of my life, so I never felt like I was forcing myself to hit the gym, but I
always had challenges with the proper diet to complement my lifestyle. It wasn’t that
I didn’t eat healthy, I just never felt energized enough without pre-workout, etc.
I heard about the Forks Over Knives documentary on Netflix and watched it one
night, then watched it again and again, until all of the information truly sank in and
made an impact on me.
Cancer runs in my family. My dad beat colon cancer 15 years ago, and my cousin
recently developed breast cancer in her 30s.
The facts were all right on the screen, and once I saw Mac Danzig, the UFC fighter,
speak about going plant-based, I was all in!
Q: What advice would you give to someone just starting out on this path?
My advice would be to do as much research as possible to educate yourself on the
benefits of the diet, the proper balanced nutrition, and the ethical side of going
vegan. Watch documentaries, YouTube videos, read books (I recommend “The
Happy Vegan” by Russell Simmons), and follow social media accounts which
support this lifestyle.
Q: Tell us about what Generation Vegan is and your involvement in it.
I was approached by Dani Weiss from Generation Vegan
