For the distance runner, check out No Meat Athlete. The blogger is vegan and runs marathons. He talks a lot about his struggle to transition to veganism and gives good advice on how to maintain a vegan diet even with lots of running and working out.
I am a distance runner that is fast with potential to go to state but my eating habits are horrid. I have tried being a vegetarian and or a vegan before but I have given up twice. Can you help me get on track to being a vegetarian or vegan for the rest of my life or give me advice on what to do?
Do you struggle with motivation or are you unsure of what to eat? I encourage everyone to watch documentaries, vegan-yums compiled a lot of videos in this post. You’re already on the right track by following food blogs that can help you with ideas. Another thing I’m excited about is that there is a Forks Over Knives plan book coming out that will tell you exactly what plant based recipes to eat for your health.
Is it possible to be low carb, high fat while eating vegan? If so, do you have any recipes for that?
Personally, I support a high carb diet. But here’s an article for you. I guess you could include things like olive oil, avocado, and nuts in your diet.
