Vegan athletes – strong, fast and healthy

I was reading over on Food Headlines about a new vegan cookbook with an introduction by Carl Lewis. In it, Lewis said that he never felt better than the year he was on a vegan diet (whether or not he’s still on one, I’m not sure). This article expands on the idea of being a vegan athlete and the misconceptions about getting enough calories on a vegan diet or about animal protein being better than plant protein. For a large paper, they did a good job of covering a story about a pretty specific segment of society.

    I started experimenting with a meatless diet for three weeks. Two months later, I remain meat free. I work out three to five days on week –cardio for three light weights for two. Any suggestions?
