ENTREGA Y DISPONIBILIDAD
The plant-based athlete by Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke reveals the incontrovertible proof that the human body doesn't need meat, eggs, or dairy to be strong. Instead, research shows that a consciously calibrated plant-based diet offers athletes the greatest possible recovery times, cell oxidation, injury prevention, and restorative sleep, and allows them to train more effectively, with better results. However, committing to a plant-based diet as an athlete isn't as simple as swapping vegetables for meat; athletes require a comprehensive understanding of how even the slightest nutrition changes will impact their power, energy, and performance. From the debate over plant vs animal protein, to guidance on the proper balance of calories, fat, and carbohydrates, to examples of what top athletes eat in a day to fuel their endurance and strength-training workouts, this book is a necessary resource. Featuring more than 60 recipes, insights from plant-based athletes who have made the switch from animal products to grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables, and explosive scientific research, The Plant-Based Athlete is the ultimate invitation for joining the growing community of athletes (from elites to weekend warriors) who use plants to power their workouts and their every day.
