This is an updated and revised edition of a book previously called “Vegetarian Sports Nutrition.” The name change not only reflects the rise of veganism and other more restrictive diets, but also an increase in “flexitarianism” -- or the reduction (but not elimination) of animal-based foods that is driven by health factors, by environmental concerns, or by a combination of both.

Especially with the increase in exercise, I really wanted to know I was on the right track in terms of nutrient quality of my diet and how that relates to an increase in being more intentional with physical exertion.
