Vegetarians tend to be more fit than average due to eating a healthy diet. But good health doesn’t start and stop at the dinner table. It involves getting enough sleep, reducing stress, and incorporating regular exercise into your daily life. For some of us, this means making significant changes – especially when it comes to exercise.
Veggie & Fit has two goals in mind:
1. Send a powerful message to the public that vegetarians can be strong and fit.
2. Encourage existing vegetarians to go further.
If you need some inspiration, read OrganicAthlete.org’s interviews with elite vegan athletes including ironman triathlete, Brendan Brazier; pro cyclist, Molly Cameron; ultramarathoner, Scott Jurek; pro bodybuilder, Kenneth Williams; and pro surfer, Katie Coryell. They also have an excellent guide to vegan sports nutrition.
Challenge yourself to become more than just “veggie” – be veggie & fit!
