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.
