2:00 - Pat Reeves - Boosting Workout Performance/Neutralising Enzyme Inhibitors

I have created some, simple, homemade protein powders that balance hormones, increase energy for gym workouts and boost metabolism. I will be sharing these with you.

I have further researched both leukocytosis in UK and Germany and have exciting news as how we can neutralise enzyme inhibitors within a plant-based eating regime – especially for those suffering an auto-immune health challenge.

Signature talks are always inter-active with my audience and will include how to maximise nutrient absorption via live-food intake and anything you need to know in this regard.

3.00 - Dave Sheahan - Why Dairy, Animal Products, Processed Foods and Synthetic supplements are like petrol to a fire when it comes to Cancer. How adopting a Plant based lifestyle can prevent or possibly eliminate this rampant disease.

Cancer is rampant and killing humans on an increasing scale despite billions being spent on "research" and finding a cure. Prevention, cure and elimination are simple - plant and alkaline based nutrition. It is time for the truth to be known and the lid to be lifted on the cancer "industry".

4.00 - Vegan Bodybuilding (Carlos Barbon) - Vegan & Natural Muscle building : Nutrition and training

Explaining how it is easy to consume in daily basis, more then enough protein through the plants we can eat, starting with legumes, seeds, spinach and many more.

Talking about the importance of essential fatty acids and the different vitamins and mineral sources.

I will explain what did work for me, the way I did eat all the years and what was important regarding the training with weights in order to give the muscles the right natural impulse to grow.

5.00 - Bodybuilding Contest - Shoulder press contest

The event will be a seated single dumbbell shoulder press (15Kg males, 7Kg females). The contest will be how many continuous repetitions a contestant can achieve. Partial reps will not be allowed & the judges may end any event if they feel a safety issue arises (either to the contestant or the audience). 

The judge's decision is final.

Entry is free & all entrants will receive a prize.

The event will be photographed & by entering the contest you agree to allow photographs and videos of yourself to be used (on the internet or other mediums) by vegan bodybuilding & other sponsors of the event.

12.00 - Yvonne Bishop Weston - What our Children Need to Eat

Yvonne Bishop-Weston, Nutritional Therapist BSc. Dip ION mBANT, will talk about what children need in and out of their diets to help them grow healthy bodies and develop enquiring minds. Where the right proteins, starchy carbs, essential fats, fruits and veg can provide  the nutrients they need and where supplements may have their place. Yvonne's aim is to provide advice based on science with practical ideas of how to include in daily life.

I will explain exactly what is meant by a ‘WFPB' diet and look at the evidence which suggests that this is the healthiest diet to adopt - this will include a short resume of recently published books, including ‘Proteinaholic' by Dr Garth Davis and ‘How Not to Die' by Dr Michael Greger.

2:00 - Max Tuck - Why a Vegan Diet is Potentially Your Healthiest Choice

The ethical, cruelty-free aspects of the vegan lifestyle are well established. Now a vegan diet, for many years considered "inadequate" by mainstream nutrition, is making rapid headway as the healthiest option too. Get it right and improve your energy levels, disease resistance and even your lifespan. Join Max to find out how!

Typical vegan diets offer important advantages for health, particularly less saturated fat and cholesterol and lower risk of obesity. However, the right choices on a plant-based diet are critical to getting the maximum benefit. This talk provides clear guidelines for maximising the benefits.
