Running On A Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic Performance (Healthy Ways to Lose Weight Book 4)

Running On A Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic Performance (Healthy Ways to Lose Weight Book 4)

Why a Plant Based Diet is Best for Runners (and Everyone Else for That Matter!) In 1977 Jim Fixx published his book entitled The Complete Book of Running, which sold over a million copies and was instrumental in the launch of the American running boom of the late 1970’s. Fixx himself became a fitness icon, and his name became synonymous with the ideal picture of health. It is for this reason that his death at the age of 52 shocked the running world. On July 20th, 1984, Jim Fixx was found on the side of the road dead after suffering a massive heart attack during his morning run on a rural road in Vermont. Fixx had a family predisposition to heart disease – his father died at the age of 43 from a heart attack. During his autopsy it was determined that Fixx had major blockages in three of his arteries, the worst of which was 95% clogged. Despite knowing that he had a hereditary risk, Fixx felt that his compulsive running regime would keep him immune to health issues. Fixx never addressed the issue of diet, and despite having high cholesterol and a bad family history was a devoted meat eater until his premature death. We are just starting to understand the causal link between eating a meat based diet and illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. Exercise alone is not a wellness guarantee, but running and eating a plant based diet will arguably get you to the highest point of personal health you might ever hope to achieve. Running on a Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic PerformanceThis book is divided into two sections. The first section will outline the argument for why a plant based diet is preferable to a meat based diet for general health. The second section will explore areas of interest for the plant based runner, including: Debunking the Plant Diet Myths Plant Based Sources of Carbohydrates, Proteins & Fats Plant Based Smoothies Suggestions Plant Based Meal Suggestions for Training and RecoveryAnd More! Switch to a Plant Based Diet Today for Better Running and Better Health! Read More »

Plant Based Nutrition for Endurance Athletes: The New Science of Exploiting Organic and Raw Foods (The Science of Nutrition Book 1)

Plant Based Nutrition for Endurance Athletes: The New Science of Exploiting Organic and Raw Foods (The Science of Nutrition Book 1)

The Science Behind Why a Proper Plant Based Diet Can Provide More Energy for Endurance Athletes It is a widely accepted principle, even among those who embrace the standard Western style diet, that eating unprocessed, organic foods is in general healthier than eating a highly processed meat based diet. What is not generally known is the specific impact that eating a diet consisting primarily of organic, plant based foods can have on the performance of the endurance athlete. Athletic performance is largely dependent on how well the body is able to manage, store and process energy. Eating a diet of unprocessed, organic food enables the human body to produce an excess of energy while at the same time negating the potential for any harmful ingredients. That clean energy increases endurance levels, overall stamina and optimal fitness of the human body. Conversely, eating a processed meat based diet demands a greater energy cost based on the metabolic processes involved and in turn yields a much smaller nutritional payload. Plant Based Nutrition for Endurance Athletes: The New Science of Exploiting Organic and Raw FoodsThis book will lay out the science based arguments for why eating a clean, plant based diet is optimal: Overview of the Basic Metabolism Process Why Animal Protein and Processed Food is Bad for Athletes Naturally Enhancing the Metabolization of Carbohydrates The Benefits of Fibers, Chlorophyll and AlkaloidsGetting the Maximum Nutritional Benefit from Green, Leafy VegetablesOptimal Ratio and Distribution of Nutrients for Maximum Energy Output Start Eating Clean Today for Better Performance and Lower Risk of Injury!
