Plant Based Nutrition for Endurance Athletes: The New Science of Exploiting Organic and Raw Foods - Paul Rogers - ebook
Opis

The Science Behind Why a Proper Plant Based Diet Can Provide More Energy for Endurance Athletes!It is a widely accepted principle, even among those who embrace the standard Western style diet, that eating unprocessed, organic foods is in general healthier than eating a highly processed meat based diet. What is not generally known is the specific impact that eating a diet consisting primarily of organic, plant based foods can have on the performance of the endurance athlete.Athletic performance is largely dependent on how well the body is able to manage, store and process energy. Eating a diet of unprocessed, organic food enables the human body to produce an excess of energy while at the same time negating the potential for any harmful ingredients. That clean energy increases endurance levels, overall stamina and optimal fitness of the human body. Conversely, eating a processed meat based diet demands a greater energy cost based on the metabolic processes involved and in turn yields a much smaller nutritional payload.This book will lay out the science based arguments for why eating a clean, plant based diet is optimal:- Overview of the Basic Metabolism Process- Why Animal Protein and Processed Food is Bad for Athletes- Naturally Enhancing the Metabolization of Carbohydrates- The Benefits of Fibers, Chlorophyll and Alkaloids- Getting the Maximum Nutritional Benefit from Green, Leafy Vegetables- Optimal Ratio and Distribution of Nutrients for Maximum Energy OutputStart Eating Clean Today for Better Performance and Lower Risk of Injury!

Introduction

It is a widely accepted principle, even among those who embrace the standard Western style diet, that eating unprocessed, organic foods is in general healthier than eating a highly processed meat based diet. What is not generally known is the specific impact that eating a diet consisting primarily of organic, plant based foods can have on the performance of the endurance athlete.

Athletic performance is largely dependent on how well the body is able to manage, store and process energy. Eating a diet of unprocessed, organic food enables the human body to produce an excess of energy while at the same time negating the potential for any harmful ingredients. That clean energy increases endurance levels, overall stamina and optimal fitness of the human body. Conversely, eating a processed meat based diet demands a greater energy cost based on the metabolic processes involved and in turn yields a much smaller nutritional payload.

Eating an organic, plant based diet also aids in preventing most common injuries associated with running and endurance activities. This type of diet typically lacks the compounds known to negatively impact the human body that are found in meat and processed diets. These detrimental compounds are especially counterproductive to individuals that have a constant need for high energy outputs.

For this population it is of utmost importance to focus on the components of our diet that can yield the greatest possible output of clean energy.

Even when on a meat based diet that is supplemented with animal based proteins, the human body is still not able to reach 100% of its energy output. The reason for this lies in the chemical processes involved in the digestion of food composed mostly of meat. The cooking of meat (also known as the thermal alteration of its basic composition) and the processing of other types of non-organic food serves to significantly degrade its nutritional value. On average, it takes 20% more nutritive elements to be digested in order to keep the optimal levels of nutrients essential for normal functioning of the human body.

This book is focused on explaining how to maximize the potential of digested nutrients and their impact on the human body through its metabolism. It is also necessary to understand the underlying mechanisms involved in the metabolism and energy production to be used by the locomotive system and the process of cellular development.
