According to a presentation at the 2013 Institute of Food
Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Expo, a balanced plant-based
diet provides the same quality of fuel for athletes as a meat-based
diet. In fact, analysis of the bones of Roman Gladiators indicates
they may have been vegetarians. Today, many famous athletes are
vegetarian such as marathon runners Bart Yasso and Scott Jurek, and
pro Ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier.

with balanced plant-based diets:
Plant-strong is the way to be good stewards of our bodies! This
way we help decrease the rate of many chronic diseases, we alleviate
suffering and we live harmoniously with God’s farmed animals.
