Nutrition Programs by Brendan Brazier
Meal Programs by Professional Ironman Triathlete/Best-Selling Author Brendan Brazier, January 11th, 2007

You'll notice that I eat far fewer calories than many people with a similar training schedule. Since mine are of a "high net gain", meaning they digest and assimilate easily, I get more total energy from my food and don't need to eat as much. This is a rough guide since I "graze" all day... more

Vegan Bodybuilder's Pre-Contest Diet
by Vegan Bodybuilder Robert Cheeke, January 7th 2007

In competitive bodybuilding, we typically have different �seasons� just like other athletes. We have our competitive season where we spend as long as 16 weeks preparing for a single competition; and we may compete multiple times throughout the year. During our off-season we bulk up, add mass, eat more of a variety of foods and we don�t get near a stage or bright lights (unless we�re guest posing or presenting awards at a contest.)... more
 
Vegan Athletes... How do you get your Protein?
By Robert Cheeke, Elite Vegan Bodybuilder, January 7th, 2007

If there is one question vegans get more than any other question, it is, "How do you get your protein?" I often respond by asking the individual if they know anyone with a protein deficiency. One thing to remember is that protein is found in nearly all foods and is one of the easiest components of nutrition for our bodies to find in food and use for mechanical functions. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are abundant in fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and other vegan foods. Eating a wide variety of healthy foods supplies all essential amino acids which is necessary for optimum health... more

Organicathlete.org Interview with Robert Cheeke
March 4th 2005

1. How important are organic foods to you?

Organic foods are important to me based on the ethics from which they are grown and harvested. Organic growing practices represent some the positive values that still exist in modern agriculture. Supporting organic farms is important to the sustainability of our planet as well. I recently heard a comedian joking that in the future “water will be $20 a gallon but we’ll still have our $1.50 gas.” If we grow and buy organic foods than we can hopefully preserve the resources that we have left. If not then the direction we are moving is not an upward one and it will spiral down and will effect generations long after we’re gone... more
 
 
The Ecological Wisdom of Enjoying Raw Foods
by Don Weaver, January 5th, 2005

“Then what is the answer? … Integrity is wholeness, the great beauty is Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty of the universe. Love that, not man apart from that, or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions, or drown in despair when his days darken.” --Robinson Jeffers... more

by Robert Cheeke, Vegan Bodybuilder, February 28th, 2004

In fitness, nutrition is equally as important as it is in bodybuilding. You want to focus on eating about six meals a day, again with attention to 40% protein, 30% carbohydrates, and 30% fats, each day. Your interest should be more on getting adequate amounts of all essential and non-essential amino acids... more

by Robert Cheeke, Vegan Bodybuilder, February 28th, 2004

Like any diet, you need to decide how much of each one to consume. Meal frequency is also something that has to be discussed. So many people eat only a few times per day... more
