[quote]Q- Can I Be a Competitive Athlete on a Plant-based Diet?
A- Just ask Tony Gonzalez, the 247-pound tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs football team. For health reasons, Tony changed his diet after signing a five-year contract extension, making him the league’s highest paid tight end, and went on to break the NFL record for receptions by a tight end in 2008. His teammates have nicknamed him "China Study" after T. Colin Campbell’s book by the same name, which Gonzalez studied before changing his diet. Check out the China Study book for yourself!
Or ask that question to Ruth Heidrich, who in 1982 was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and cured herself by eating a low-fat, plant-strong diet. She has since won more than one thousand triathlons.
Or ask Salim Stoudamire, the plant-eating point guard for the NBA Atlanta Hawks, who says that by the fourth quarter, when most players are starting to fade, he’s picking it up a notch. Martina Navratilova, the world’s winningest tennis player, who serves up plant-based foods exclusively could give you some insight on how to eat plant-strong and still compete as an athlete. Or ask plant-devourer Dave Scott, my hero and six-time winner of the famed Hawaii Ironman triathlon.
