Racing Vegan

A lot of people ask me if I get enough protein eating vegan to keep up with my active lifestyle.  The answer is Yes!!  I did a half ironman last weekend and had my best finishing time ever, and I did it eating vegan.  I am careful to eat protein and healthy carbs to keep my energy up.  Most americans consume too much protein.  I just had my blood work done and my cholesterol was 144.  In the Engine 2 diet book, the author claims that being under 150 makes you heart attack proof.  This way of eating works!  Plus, I feel better than ever!  It does take planning, but with proper time management, this way of eating can work into your life.
