Less meat in a diet means less protein in the body. Less protein = less testosterone --> more girly-men, less drive to accomplish anything.

Yes and no. Here is a story of a man from my Alma Mater (the only reason I even know about him) who is a vegan Olympic weightlifter. A big paradox if there ever was one. FWIW, he was the only USA representative in weight lifting for 3 straight Olympics.

So he basically has 2 full time jobs: weight lifting and dieting. It is really hard to get all your essential amino acids (protein building blocks) from a vegan diet. It can be done but it becomes a full time job. And is probably the reason you see so many skinny/sickly vegans.
