"Five decades ago, when I won the Boston Marathon as a vegetarian runner, few knew or cared about my diet. Since then, I've encountered increasing interest year after year. At every runner's clinic, someone asks me: 'What do you think of a vegetarian diet, and how can I learn more?' The answer is simple: Vegetarian and plant-based diets are great for your health as well as the health of the planet. And to learn everything you need to know, just read Plant-Based Sports Nutrition. Enette Larson-Meyer and Matt Ruscigno are as informed on the subject as they are passionate and experienced. There's no better source than this book."
--Amby Burfoot, 1968 Boston Marathon Winner and Author of Run Forever: Your Complete Guide to Healthy Lifetime Running and Other Books
