The Spectacular Plant Based Runner

I am living proof that a plant based diet is orders of magnitude better than one that includes meat or dairy.

I took up running when I was 43 years old. It was a not too terrible transition from cycling.

I excelled at distance running. Increasing my mileage up to about 10 miles for long runs.

The thing is, I drink 4 beers most every night. Yet, still, I'm able to achieve this higher level of fitness.

I"m not fast. But I have endurance.

I've been running a couple years now. There's been some decline as I surpassed age 45, but overall, I'm still doing okay.

I've never been a stellar athlete. Even when I was young and sober. But I'm stronger now, even as I age, even as I drink. It says a lot about how our choice of diet affects our overall health.

I should stop drinking. If I did, I'd probably be superhuman.

So what could a plant based diet do for those who are already young and sober? It would probably be spectacular.

Easy Peasy Vegetarian

What I don't understand is how people think it's hard to be vegetarian. It's so fucking easy. Too easy almost. Cheese and milk make it a snap. Meat is disgusting anyway. Filled with bacteria and parasites.

I was vegan for a while. Now, that was hard. There's nothing left to eat. Simple things like bread and rice mixes are bad. And while I aspire to vegan, it can be quite difficult. I guess it really depends on 'how' vegan you want to be. You can ignore the whey in most magarines and breads. Chalk it up to inevitability.

All I'm really trying to say is vegetarian is easy. So quit whining about it and do it. There's still pizza and grilled cheese and chocolate milk. There are fake burgers and fake buffalo wings. What else do you need.

Meat eaters are either just lazy, stupid or gullible. Because meat makes you sick and fat and unhealthy. The meat industry and the government they own wants you to believe you need it, but they are liars.
