Whoa, he's in a great shape and for being 60 that is bloody awesome. I have to show them pictures for my dad - I always tell him it's never too late and that he too can look like 30 being 60...

I just participated in Outside Magazine's "Stay 30 Forever" tour. I'm not quite 30 but I'm staying there forever I guess.......it was fun. We just promoted healthy eating and exercise. I did a presentation called, "Thrive on a Plant-Based Diet" and I represented OrganicAthlete and Vega.

It's funny, with eating properly and exercising properly and having low amounts of stress, etc. you can look and feel very well at nearly any age.

Brendan is now 32 and still looks like he's 17. I'm not sure if that is a good thing, but it's a pretty good thing. Another vegan friend of mine (mostly raw) is 38 but looks like she's 27 like me.

John Robbins is a cool guy.

Veganism really does have some age defying side effects. I know my skin has gotten much smother and cleaner since i went vegan. That's awesome that you got to arm wrestle John Robbins.

Apparently John Robbins likes to arm wrestle! Here he is arm wrestling Rip Esselstyn of the Engine 2 Diet.

It wouldn't have anything to do with that mechanical advantage would it? :P

All part of the sport, right? ;)

Gotta get those angles down, use your shoulder, etc.

Ask Rob BigWood, he's one of the best in the world and vegan :)

John is tough! Seriously! He was benching 245lbs in he's 50's on a fairly small (but super ripped) frame.

He's done amazing things for this movement. Can't say enough great stuff about the guy. He changed and saved so many lives!
