The Vegetarian Bodybuilder ®

Welcome. My name is Steve Holt and this is my bodybuilding site. I was born and raised in Canada, and I have been a vegetarian for 25 years. I began to seriously train as a bodybuilder some eight years ago, when I was well into my forties. I completed my first series of bodybuilding competitions during the year 2000.

Here I am, 52 years old, after the pre-judging at the CBBF Canadian World Qualifier August 5, 2006.

Come on in and visit. Perhaps you too are vegetarian, and looking to learn more about building the body. Or perhaps you're interested to see how one can build a competitive physique without meat, without fish, and without anabolic steroids.

Maybe you're skeptical. That's fine too. A healthy skepticism is always welcome, especially when accompanied by an open mind.

Here's what you'll find within this website: Lots of information, including exercise and diet tips, sample menus, published and unpublished articles, links, photos, and feature articles on others who have led the way as vegetarian bodybuilders, like the great Bill Pearl and Roy Hilligen.

We also have a vibrant online forum for you to visit, where you can post questions and spend some time with others who are on the same path.
