I love this topic. I was raised as vegetarian and I never felt the need to eat animal flesh. I am not against it and even prescribe that to clients since I respect their needs, likes and believes.
Yes, there is a ton of research around this topic now, and plant based diets are the way to go in terms longevity, planet sustainability and overall health.
I have specialist education in plant based diets via a course done at Cornell University, New York.
I have learnt that plants provide every single aspect that we need in terms of nutrition.
We now know that the old question: “Where do you get your protein?” was a marketing tactic used by the meat industry, but science has debunked that and the best form of protein is provided by plants.
Plants also provide a range of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components that are essential for longevity.
If I had to give you an advice I would say eat more vegetables!
Read my books for more detailed information on this subject.
If you want to have even more information on that and how it improves your athletic performance, please watch the documentary The Game Changers on Netflix.
