Vegan Bodybuilding in New York Times Article

Hey congrats on this article, great to get some international coverage such as the New York Times:

Vegans Muscle Their Way into Bodybuilding

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Jimi Sitko gets up at 4 most mornings, works out two to four hours a day and can bench-press nearly twice his weight. He has a shaved head and a brightly colored tattoo on his left arm, and he can easily be mistaken for a Marine separated from his platoon.

His apartment is filled with medals and trophies from bodybuilding competitions, snapshots of his tanned, rippled physique in full flex. His uniform is an assortment of sweat pants and hoodies, which he occasionally lifts when his abs look particularly fierce.

But most surprising is what is inside Sitko’s stomach: tofu, fresh greens and plant-based protein powder.

Sitko is among a niche community of vegan bodybuilders.

[edit - sorry, I see this was already mentioned in a thread. Although perhaps a NY Times article mention deserves two threads :/ ]
