Hi Plant-Powered family!
This one is for all the vegan athletes, or anyone who has had to answer the famous “how do you get enough protein?!” question (aka all of us?).
In this episode, we have longtime vegan bodybuilder and New York Times best-selling author of The Plant-Based Athlete, Robert Cheeke, on the show. We talk all about achieving top athletic performance through a plant-based diet.
We bust some common myths about nutrition for athletes, and talk about how NBA athletes, to professional tennis players, marathon runners and many others in between have found that a vegan diet has supported their bodies the best.
