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.
Ever wish running was just a little bit easier? We do too.
So this week, we're revisiting one of the most popular episodes ever on NMA Radio to discuss running hacks... or the little tricks we use to remove a few of the biggest obstacles from our running routines.
You still have to put in the work, but these will help make your running routine stronger.
Want to be a healthy eater? It's not as complicated as you might think.
In today's episode we share our ten food rules for how to eat in a sustainable, healthy way... without the additional stress.
SPOILER: Counting calories or nutrients isn't one of them.
Runners, new and experienced, have all heard certain "rules." Hard and fast advice on how to train, recover, and experience the sport.
But we here at NMA Radio don't think all of those rules are beneficial. In today's episode we call out some of the running advice we've all heard (maybe even shared), and flip it on it's head.
And we're back with another of the infamous NMA Radio Q&A episodes, where we take listener questions and do our best to answer them. Sometimes more successfully than others...
In this episode we tackle marathon nutrition, meat substitutes, how to go vegan, running hills, sugar, and oh so much more.
Vegan kids say the darnedest things, don't they?
Today's episode is all about raising vegan children, and to do so, we brought on Matt's wife Erin and his two kids. You're in for a treat.
Want to become a runner, but don't have a clue where to start? In today's episode, Matt and Doug run (see what I did there?) back to the basics on how to get off the couch and start training for your first 5K.
Sounds way easier than it actually is, doesn't it? In today's episode Matt and Doug discuss how they like to relax, and why some relaxation techniques might not be good for you in the long run.
When it comes to what you eat, how often you run, or what your gym routine looks like, should you care what other people think? That's the topic of today's discussion with vegan bodybuilder Robert Cheeke.
Plus putting yourself out there, committing to something big, and Amy's burritos.
When most people think of plant-based cheese, delicious and homemade don't normally come to mind. Julie Piatt is on a mission to change that with her new book 'This Cheese is Nuts.'
In today's episode with sit down with Julie to discuss the book, and how making craft vegan cheese at home is more approachable than you'd think.
Today, we bring you something special -- a live recording of a recent Pulse Q&A webinar, featuring fitness and running asked live at the event. If you like No Meat Athlete Radio, you'll totally dig this Q&A.
It all started with a Facebook comment, where a non-vegan proudly proclaimed, "it's impossible to be 100% vegan."
Is it? It got us thinking ...
In today's episode we discuss the definition of vegan, how realistic it is to follow a 100% vegan lifestyle, and whether or not it's even that important.
It was a big week for hosts Matt and Doug. Doug ran a 100K ultramarathon, and Matt released his second book, The No Meat Athlete Cookbook.
In today's episode we discuss the ups and downs for both, and the surprising sell-out success of the new cookbook.
Heather Crosby, founder and author of YumUniverise, is set to release her brand new cookbook Pantry to Plate next week, which specializes in formulas and blueprints instead of strict recipes.
In today's episode, we sit down to Heather to discuss practical, plant-based cooking and how to find balance between healthy and convenient.
Doug wants to lose five pounds, without crash diets, and keep it off. The question is, how?
He runs almost daily, eats a plant-based diet, and is generally a pretty healthy dude. So he poses the question to Matt and together they formulate a plan.
In today's episode the two discuss how to lose those final few pounds without completely disrupting your life or eating habits.
Did you know there's an all vegan ultramarathon along the coastline of Northern California, directed by friend of NMA Radio Sid Garza-Hillman?
Well there is, and Doug ran it last week.
In today's episode we chat with Doug about the Mendocino Coast 50K race, what he learned after going in with little training, and why the post-race burrito bar alone was worth the trip.
Over the past few years, we’ve talked a lot about our favorite fitness, nutrition, and mindset resources – how-to guides, tutorials, and blueprints.
What we haven’t done, however, is share our favorite non-resource books under those same categories. Books that will inspire you to take action, but ones you can still listen to as an audiobook or enjoy them on the beach.
Here are our 27 favorite books ... which may just change your life.
When making a big life change, especially around healthy eating, is it better to go all in or leave room for moderation?
That's the topic of today's podcast with Pamela Fergusson, RD PhD, who shares her advice on things like cheat days and relaxed nutritional rules.
In today's episode we chat with Stepfanie Romine, co-author of the brand new No Meat Athlete Cookbook, about meal planning tricks for the vegan athlete, and how you can get started today.
We're not usually one for recaps, but when you get back from a week on an all vegan cruise, with some of the biggest names in the community, there are more than a few stories to share ...
There's the geek's approach to running form, which dissects each and every element of form using words no one understands, and then there's the non-geek's approach to running form.
This is a guide for non-geeks, and we hope you enjoy.
Do vegans need supplements to stay healthy? What nutrients do whole plant-based foods actually lack?
There's a lot of controversy surrounding those questions, and the answer isn't always simple.
In today's episode, Matt sits down with Matt Tullman -- an author and entrepreneur who has set a goal for a third of the population to go plant-based by 2030 -- to break it all down.
The state of the vegan movement is ...
As we recorded today's episode, how I completed that sentence began to vary.
In my opinion, there's little doubt that veganism is becoming more mainstream and going plant-based gets easier by the day. But does that mean the movement is strong?
In today's episode, Matt and I depart from our typical health and nutrition banter to discuss where veganism is right now as a movement. We're not approaching this topic from a place of authority -- neither of us can claim to be anywhere near authorities on the subject -- but instead as two dudes in the middle of it.
We rave about all the new vegan options and foods, but also attempt to challenge each other on how we can do better as a community.
Oh, and I make a terrible analogy using kale, so there's that too.
Here's what we talk about in this episode:
More questions, more answers. In this episode of Ask Matt and Doug, we cover running and triathlon nutrition, supplements, B12, alkalized water, weight loss, and oh so much more.
This Thursday we have another Throwback Rewind of one of our most popular episodes.
NMA Radio co-host Doug recently attended a bachelor party, where while discussing meals for the weekend, it became clear that one of the guys wasn’t comfortable with Doug’s being a vegan.
"We’re all having meat. What are you going to eat, Doug? Carrots?"
We’ve all been in this situations like this. It’s that moment at a restaurant, party, or dinner when all of a sudden people realize you’re vegan or vegetarian, and don’t know how to react. Before you can even say a word, someone gets defensive or pokes fun of your diet.
So what do you do? Usually, we react in one of two ways. Either:
1) You use it as an opportunity to make a point, defend your diet choice, and maybe even convince a few people, or
2)You brush it off and keep the mood light, in an attempt to make veganism appear as normal as possible.
I’m not saying either of these better than the other; I respect both choices. But I know the one that I choose, almost every single time.
In today’s episode, we discuss these two approaches, and how Doug and I handle the uncomfortable situations at parties, with family, and while out to dinner. We also share the rest of Doug’s story, and how by the end of the weekend, he got that same guy to take interest in the vegan diet.
