A Message from Brendan Brazier
At 15, I decided I wanted to be an Ironman triathlete. This led me to look at the importance of a plant-based diet for athletes. Many people associate the word “diet” with a restrictive way of eating. It doesn’t have to be. A vegan diet is one of inclusion, not exclusion. When you include only healthy plant-based foods in your diet, you’ll find there won’t be room left for the unhealthy ones. Considering what you are gaining, taking this time to transition is a positive investment. The payback is higher-quality living—and possibly winning Ironman triathlons, like I have.
