    NBSV 067: From butcher to vegan bodybuilder: Fraser Bayley's story, and powerful insights on mindset

    Fraser Bayley has an unusual story, having gone from being a butcher with multiple mental health challenges to a passionate vegan advocate, bodybuilder, and strength & nutrition coach.

    NBSV 066: B.S.-busting on lectins (a.k.a. "antinutrients"). Why they're not harmful, and why a "lectin-free" diet is pseudoscience.
