A collection of stories about plant based athletes

Not useful or interesting to me. In short just stories about plant based athletes. To many words and to little useful information. If you are interested in hearing about plant based athletes then maybe its for you. I would have liked more info and science or concrete strategies… Maybe if you need to be persuaded that it is possible.

New Level Plant-Based Knowledge!

Listened to this book in one day, on day one it released! The practical information, great stories, and personal anecdotes are so engaging and informative, I will be using this book as PB Atheltic Bible! Thank you so much to Matt and Robert.

Maybe a good 101

I thought I’d really like this book but I’m more than halfway through and can’t bear to read it anymore. It’s like a written version of the movie Gamechangers, except not good. I read Shred It by Robert and listen to Matt’s podcast and like both, but this book just didn’t do it for me. May serve as a good plant based athlete 101 book. I needed and had thought it would be at least somewhat more advanced.

For Beginners

As a two year vegan, I struggled to finish the book. It is extremely repetitive and the information discussed is widely available on the internet.

The book states facts though and I feel it is intended for new comers to the vegan ways.

Priceless Plant-based Athlete Knowledge!

An incredible amount of information packed into a well written book that is easy to digest all at once or a chapter at a time.
The proof is in this book that you do not have to eat animals to compete as an athlete at any level.
I love hearing about what people from different backgrounds and sports fuel their body with before and after workouts and events.
Excellent job guys!

Great read for everyone

Reviews the principles of exercise science and sports nutrition in a way that is easy to understand (not too technical or boring). Already enjoying several of the recipes!

It’s a must!!!!

This was an eye opener, I learned something I was lacking in the short years I’ve been a vegan endurance athlete and this is as the piece I was missing. Now to put this to work !

Good but filled with case studies, less strong evidence

As someone who leans to a plant based diet, I was excited to listen to the book, expected this book to be similar to How not to die, in that it is filled with strong evidence supporting their claim such as meta analysis and randomized control trials. Yet it is filled with case studies showing that a plant based athlete can be done and down successfully. Someone arguing for a all meat diet could find 7 people it worked for and get their testimonials to argue the inverse. Like I said I agree with the main point of the book but testimonials and single case studies are not the best evidence. Still, good message and good recipes.

AWESOMENESS

This was the best book I've ever read, and as an aspiring elite athlete, it'll be on my to do list continually
