Appearing on Sunday 12pm in the Nutrition/Health talks room
I am 63 years old and coming to the end of a career teaching Biology. I am a keen cyclist and fell walker.
As I have got older, I have found that I have been able to sustain my strength and fitness (indeed, improve them!) by adopting a 100% plant based diet, which I did after reading ‘Eat and Run’ by the US ultramarathon runner, Scott Jurek. My only regret is that I didn’t do so much earlier!
This year, I completed many cycling sportives in very respectable times, including The Fred Whitton Challenge, The Etape du Dales and The Monster.
In recent years, I have been following and studying the evidence being put forward (mostly in the US) in favour of a ‘Whole Food Plant Based Diet’ as exemplified by athletes including Scott Jurek, Rich Roll, Brendan Brazier and others.
I am now promoting this via my website (www.vegancyclist.co.uk) – as well as advising people who might be finding it difficult changing to a vegan diet.
Alongside the maintenance of health, I also believe it is crucial that more people understand the importance of a vegan lifestyle to eliminate the exploitation of animals and reduce environmental degradation.
