Vegan Fitness Coach Monica Parodi

I am fascinated by vegan fitness pros, especially when they look and feel great because they are educated, do it in a way that is completely healthy and are not depriving themselves. Monica Parodi is vegan fitness and nutrition coach who is a beautiful example of this. She looks healthy and fit.

She switched to veganism after a cancer scare, primarily for health reasons. She is focused on her health and does not compromise it for any reason, even her 6 pack abs (which are totally natural!). She swears she doesn’t cut water/salt or any of the other crazy things fitness models do.
