If you are an athlete, perhaps you have wondered how your food choices really do affect your performance. Or, maybe you are even wondering if your food choices affect your performance at all. To answer that question — YES, indeed your food does affect your performance! If you are anything like I was when I was very committed to competitive triathlons, you want every single competitive advantage that you can get. Or, even if you’re just someone who loves exercising and isn’t into the ‘competitive thing’, you still probably want as much energy as possible to enjoy your fitness. Right?

So, if you fall into either one of those categories, you will really enjoy today’s video. In this video, I explain -- and dispel -- several myths that are associated with exercise and protein and the source of your protein. If you were wondering if you can be a healthy and competitive vegan athlete, you will find your answer in this video.

Enjoy the vid!

Janet,
I really like what you are doing. I watched your 5% protein video and was going that way earlier but now will speed it up.
Then I saw your vegetable oil video and checked it out. While I was able to get the general idea you were trying to convey, it was difficult to follow. Two things stand out in my memory: 1. Your wording on a couple of occasions you make a positive statement but it sounded negative because of the convoluted wording used. As we would say in the south, “You ain’t got no reason to do that!” Simplify what you want to say. Speak from the heart and get to the point. 2. Drop the doctor vocabulary. YOu lost me a couple of times with words I was not familiar. Say it all in plain English.
Finally, I am turned off by the word Vegan. It may be a new click word for the industry or those in the group but for us people on the outside it means nothing. I really would suggest that you make a list of 5 or 10 names for what your are trying to do and then ask which conveys what you are trying to communicate. It could be something like Enhanced Vegetable Diet or Vege Power Diet or whatever. But people should be able to relate to what you are presenting. Then go out and ask some people who you are trying to attract which one communicates best. As you do this with more and more people then one name will stand out that communicates well what you are doing. The name of my web site was not chosen by chance. But when I surveyed that is the one that stood out so I went with it. And I get very high acceptance in my niche. Hey maybe you should try FoodHalfTruths.com.
YOu are doing some great work that is greatly needed. Keep up the good work.

Hi Mark,

I SO appreciate your feedback! Truly. First, I am glad you like my blog. Secondly, and more importantly, I really am thankful for your constructive feedback. I try to make sure I explain things in simple-to-understand terms — and I often do succeed at that. But, alas, sometimes I do ‘slip up’ and revert back to Doctor Language. My apologies. There’s nothing worse than trying to follow a video when someone uses unfamiliar terms. I will definitely keep that in mind as I create upcoming videos.

I also appreciate your comment about disliking the word ‘Vegan’. This is interesting — I’ve run across that comment from a few different directions very recently. There are indeed several other words or phrases to be used — ‘plant-based diet’, ‘plant-based nutrition’, ‘veggie-powered’, ‘plant strong’, and more … Yes, doing a poll or a survey would be a good idea. FoodHalfTruths.com … interesting…

Thanks again for your feedback. I welcome any and all further comments you may have. Glad to have a fellow RVB member participate in my site! :-)

Wishing you a healthy and happy day, Mark!
