Just a few years ago, Matt's father Tim would have never considered going plant-based. Then, after dealing with health issue after health issue, he heard a talk by Dr. Fuhrman on how diet can reverse heart disease. And it has completely changed his life.
At the age of 63, Tim has gone plant-based and drastically improved his health.
In today's episode, we sit down with Matt's father to talk about his transformation and diet changes.
Today we chat with Dr. John McDougall, one of the biggest advocates for the plant-based diet, on his new book The Healthiest Diet on the Planet.
But of course we don't stop with his book.
Dr. McDougall's shares his take on why we might be getting too many micro-nutrients, how to adapt his diet as an athlete, and even why the paleo diet may be sexist.
We've talked a lot about motivation over the past 163 episodes ... how to find it, how to keep it, and what to do when you have it.
But what do you do when you just can't stay motivated? When even after all the tricks and accountability, you simply don't have the motivation to run, eat healthy, or do whatever habit you're trying to maintain?
That's what we discuss in today's episode.
And a quick SPOILER: We might not land on what you're expecting.
There have only been a few people we've invited back on No Meat Athlete Radio for a second episode, so to ask vegan bodybuilder Robert Cheeke on for a third, you know it has to be for a good reason.
In this episode we talk to Robert about how his views on nutrition and lifestyle have changed over the years, how he's embracing his imperfections, and his new book.
