S2 E3: Dani Taylor

Dani Taylor is a vegan figure competitor and champion, the co-founder of VeganProteins.com, and also a co-founder of PlantBuilt.com

As an overweight child and adolescent who believed that was the way she was “meant to be”, Dani switched to an ethical vegan diet and lost 30 pounds. At this point, she realised she had the power to change the way she looked and felt.

She began lifting weights and doing cardio, and she is now a gold medal champion several times over and one of the best professional athletes in the bodybuilding community.

In this conversation, Dani and Faye discuss topics such as:

  • the resounding success of the PlantBuilt team, who obliterated the competition at Mr America across bodybuilding, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, kettlebell sport, and CrossFit
  • the myths surrounding diet still pedalled by the meat and dairy industries
  • Dani’s journey into personal training and her reasons for going vegan
  • how anyone can make a positive change through their diet and exercise
