Robert has written a book called “Shred It!” about his experiences over the past few years and hopes to spread the word about his newfound lifestyle. This article is organized very well, as Robert gives a brief background on his life and then he talks about how Forks Over Knives opened his eyes to a plant-based diet that changed his life.
