In highschool I noticed my love for endurance sports. On a 10-months trip through Canada in 2010 I took the decission to go vegetarian and later vegan. I noticed some weight gain eventhough I was working out like never before, which was very strange to me since I had eliminated all "unhealthy" nutritions from meat and dairy. In Edmonton I learned about Brendan's philosophy and it turned around my life.
With "thrive diet" and "thrive fitniss" you get a holistic approach to the field of nutrition and workout. Brendan's knowledge to the dynamics and physics of the body is unreached in non-scientific literature. The explanations are easy understandable. Basically everyone, athlet or not, can benefit from these books. I'm not trying to convince anyone to go vegan or raw or anything the like who isn't interested in it. Just incorporating a few principles of Brendan's diet and workout program will improve lifequality noticable. You'll feel improved concentration and sleep quality, while at the same time the cravings for junkfood will decrease.
My performance has improved ever since. I have beaten my records in running and biking and what's most important; it's so much more fun now. Working out for an Ironman now, I feel like having a competitive advantage towards my competitors, diet and workout program is something I worry little about these days.
