Brandon Brazier was a professional ironman triathlete. He experimented with nutrition for several decades, searching for the optimal way to eat in order to allow him to perform at the very best of his potential. He developed an entirely plant-based dietary system to provide him with maximum nutrition, maximum digestibility and absorption, minimum stress, minimum acidosis and minimum recovery times. His performance over more than 15 years of professional carrier at one, if not the most demanding sport event in the world which is the ironman triathlon.

Basic points: almost everything to be eaten raw, no sugars, no starches, lots of nuts and seeds of all kinds with special emphasis on hemp seeds and oil, lots of vegetables and especially dark green leafy vegetables, lots power-smoothies, lots of coconut products.
