People I Follow
Good friend of mine where I get much of my info and inspiration. Although him and I do not necessarily follow the same diet at this time, I give him a great deal of credit for helping me change my life. And he gave me my first bike.
Vegan triathlete. Has written several great books. I use a ton of his recipes.
Ultra-endurance vegan athlete. Inspiring story.
Dr. Joel Fuhrman
Doctor in favor of 100% plant based nutrition. His books changed my life.
Written about a lot of the issues surrounding food in the recent past. Great books, smart guy.
Hollywood trainer who can be fun to listen to and gives some good advice. I don’t buy in to his diet 100%, but still worth the time (language warning: listen with caution)
While not plant-based, I have followed John for almost 10 years. His transformation is awesome. I have found his stuff extremely helpful throughout my “health journey.”
