Plant based diet improves athlete performance

You’ll recall from previous posts that a vegan diet is much more planet-friendly. But did you know it can vastly improve your performance? According to a new documentary, The Game Changers, it’s becoming increasingly popular with athletes but the health  benefits should transfer to the rest of us.

In the film, Esselstyn challenges 35 New York City firefighters to take his Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Challenge to see how their weight, blood pressure, and internal biochemistry could measurably shift in just one week. “When they're doing whole plant-based foods, we've got an average total cholesterol drop of 31 points, weight loss of almost seven pounds, and blood pressure at 10 over 5 — and these guys were just blown away,” Esselstyn reports
