Long term athletic POWER on a vegan diet for 11 years?

People ask me to see ‘hard data’. Well you can’t lie with a power meter and a gps system can you? 😉 http://app.strava.com/athletes/254600/segments/leader Here is my KOM ‘strava palmares’. Check out the VAM and check out the watts. Ive got WAY more in me as well. Only been training around 100miles a week on the bike so not in great form but the high carb low fat low protein low sodium vegan diet keeps me lean all year long. Tour De France lean pretty much. Ive got KOM on this climb. Some of the worlds best upcoming riders nipping at my heels. These guys are training full time too. Im surprised to beat em on such a steep climb. Thing is that I couldn’t be assed to train full time. Id miss out on troll’n the net lol! Strava is great fun. Follow me on strava to see EXACTLY what training I do. I wouldnt be surprised if you actually do more volume than me either. The KEY to fitness is to be CONSISTENT, SMASH in the carbs/water/early nights and keep your fat intake low. Make sure you don’t do more than 5% of your volume is intensity and 95% at talking pace. Oh yeah, make it FUN too cos when you make something fun you take care of...

Wild and Ancient Fruit: Is it Really Small, Bitter, and Low in Sugar? Ms Gray speaks..

Follow me on Strava.com

Strava is a really FUN website. Its like facebook for people into fitness. Its FREE and all you need is a Garmin GPS watch or bike computer which most of my audience has or soon will. 😉 Seriously though, using social sites like this to share your training and look at others is SO COOL! I love it and am addicted for sure. Be careful though cos you can easily overtrain whilst showing off some ‘strava muscle’ lol! Here is my account details if you want to see EXACTLY how much Durianrider runs and rides. This year its been about 37 mins a day of activity be it jogg’n or rid’n. Fuck all for someone as fit and lean as me. I credit that to the high carb low fat fruit munching vegan lifestyle + early nights + consistent hydration. http://app.strava.com/athletes/254600 Thanks for all your support gang. I thrive on it and really appreciate it....
