This book includes information on the most important things to consider in order to be a successful vegan bodybuilder including the best way to put together vegan meal programs and training regimens, how to find sponsorship and make bodybuilding a career, and where to find access to vegan products, services, and equipment. There is also advice on how to take bodybuilding beyond a personal endeavor and use it for activism and outreach.

Invite your friends to bring a brown bag or potluck item to gather at your home for community gatherings around the nation at 3 PM in each time zone.

Connect on Twitter and Facebook to chat with celebrities, hip hop stars, artists, community leaders, environmental activists and health experts using the hashtag #HipHopisGreen.
Throughout the 30 day campaign, tweetup contributors will receive products from some of the leading people in the new vegan green movement in Hip Hop. And a lucky winner will receive a signed copy of Robert Cheeke’s new book “Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness” “I greatly look forward to watching this project unfold and I trust Keith Tucker to deliver an outstanding production. Promoting conscious living is a big part of my life and I am honored to be involved in this project."
