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.

May 25, 2017

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.

May 11, 2017

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.

Apr 20, 2017

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.

Apr 6, 2017

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.

It's no secret that meal planning can feel a bit intimidating. It sounds like a lot of work, and if you're new to the plant-based diet and don't have libraries of go-to meals, it can get monotonous.
But once you start doing it, meal planning will save massive amounts of time and energy throughout the week, and provide a blueprint for creative, delicious meals.

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.

Mar 23, 2017

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 ...

Mar 16, 2017

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:

  • The state of the vegan movement is ...
  • Is veganism more popular, or are diets in general more widely accepted?
  • How to talk to someone on the Paleo diet
  • The pros and cons of meat-like meat alternatives
  • What we can do better as a movement

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.

There's no shortage of morning routine recommendations on the internet ... including an older episode of No Meat Athlete Radio.

And it typically goes something like this:

Do what I do and you'll be more productive, creative, and cool.

But that's not how self improvement works. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to habits, nor is there one for morning routines.

Today Matt and I share our new take on the morning routine, and the habits and structures we think work (and why other approaches might not).

Matt is a wanna-be chess nerd.

That's right, when Matt isn't working on No Meat Athlete, hanging with his family, cooking, or going to the gym, he's geeking out on chess.com tutorials.

And that's probably exactly what he should be doing.

It's easy to get so caught up in work, family, and other obligations that you never make time for yourself, and when you don't make time to do things that bring you joy, it's hard to bring joy into the other things you do.

In today's episode, Matt and I discuss the importance of hobbies, what makes for a good hobby, and why we think they're so important.

Jan 26, 2017

Healthy eating doesn't have to equal hours in the kitchen every day. In fact, Matt and I rely on just a few simple recipes for most of our weeknight meals.

They're quick, easy, and completely adaptable to what you have in the fridge.

In today's episode we share our twelve favorite plant-based weeknight recipes.

When I hear the name Tony Robbins, I think of a giant dude, dancing crowds, and walking on coals. And I think of Matt, who for as long as I can remember has been singing his praises.

After all, it was a Tony Robbins event that inspired Matt to go vegetarian and start this blog (which has gone on to became his business and my employer).

But even after reading the posts and hearing the stories, I'm still not convinced Tony does anything more than put on a show. In today's episode, just a few weeks after Matt and his wife Erin returned from a 6-day Tony Robbins experience, we hash that out.

Can a Tony Robbins event help you become your best self, or is it nothing more than a scam?

"If you're not going to do it right, don't do it at all."

That's the code Matt and I both try to live by most of the time. But throughout December, with Matt sick and me "functioning" on new-dad sleep, our healthy habits ... well let's just say they haven't been on point.

In today's episode we discuss when -- if ever -- it's okay to not do your best, and when it's better to simply let a habit, hobby, or routine go completely.

Jan 5, 2017

We're back (kind of)! After a few weeks off for travel and babies, we're kicking off the new year with a chat between Doug and Sid Garza-Hillman on new year's resolutions.

Do they work? Should you go all in? Today's episode takes a look at the bigger picture behind your 2017 goals.

With Thanksgiving behind us, it can only mean one thing ...

Time for another holiday extravaganza!

In this week's episode Matt and Doug talk holidays, babies, wine, and what they'd do during the holidays if stranded on a desert island.

(Also, there are a few big announcements in today's episode, so don't skip it!)

After a long weekend at the Remedy Food Festival, Matt has lost his voice. To help save his voice (and your ears) from further damage, we decided to revisit on of our favorite episodes ... the 15 rules we live by.

When it comes to food and fitness habits, I don’t think rules are a good thing. Guidelines, sure, but without a little wiggle room, it’s too easy to throw up your hands and give in when your willpower runs dry.

But when it comes to living a meaningful life — and ensuring that my system for managing it works — I find it’s actually easier to be less flexible … and to follow a set of real, actual rules.

In today’s episode, we share the 15 rules we live by, the firm boundaries that help us live the lives we want and find balance and happiness.

They might not all be for you, but I hope you’ll find a nugget or two to add to your own set of rules for living.
