Editorial Reviews

“This may be the perfect fitness book, and when you think about who wrote it; a woman who went from regular gal to a master athlete. That’s not surprising. It’s a rarity in this genre to recommend a vegan diet for sport as well as health, with every claim backed up. The food, the drills, and the reasons why moving your body like you mean it is all essential now. This book has everything you’re looking for unless you’re looking for excuses.” – Victoria Moran, Director, Main Street Vegan Academy and author of Main Street Vegan
