I reread Scott Jurek’s EAT AND RUN last week. What a story! And so interesting that Scott’s endurance, speed and quick recovery times are based on a purely plant-based diet (vegan).
Another vegetarian athlete is described in “Aikido Trial by Fire” – a story told in Chapter 6 of Chloe Wordsworth’s book, LIVING IN TUNE WITH YOUR LIGHT.
It’s nice for the younger generation – there are so many role models now among outstanding athletes of all types who eat plant-based diets because it improves their performance and their health.
You can google VEGAN WRESTLERS… RUNNERS… BODYBUILDERS… SWIMMERS… FOOTBALL PLAYERS… BASKETBALL PLAYERS… – thousands of links come up!
PCRM.org (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine – with more than 12,000 doctor members, most on plant-based diets) is of course a solid reference place for any athlete exploring plant-based diets and health, including PCRM’s 21-day Kickstart program.
