Calling all Vegetarians🥗 and Omnivores🍖

[A message from Luke You in Grade 11]

If you are either a vegetarian or an omnivore, please help me with my extended essay project! I’m aiming to find out if a person’s diet affects their training performance when performing a simple exercise, comparing meat-eaters with non-meat-eaters.
What I’ll ask you to do:
A simple daily workout that doesn’t require more then 3 min per day, and will be completed within 3 weeks.
Please contact me if you’re interested or for more information. Open to both students and teachers.
