Vegetarian for High Performance?
I just finished reading a book called Thrive by Brendan Brazier. He's an iron man athlete but what makes him unusual is he's completely vegan.
That's more than vegetarian, that's no eggs, milk, whey etc. Now i am a certified meat eater and i doubt i will be giving up meat anytime in the near future but i found the book fascinating.
The premise of it is that eating a whole food diet based mainly off plants reduces the stress of digestion while providing a power pack of nutrients. This promotes faster recovery from exercise.
Is there anybody here who has tried this or has any thoughts?
