The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

“It’s not like you wake up the next morning and feel ten times better. The changes are more gradual and you can see them better once you continue down the path for a while and then look back. In regards to competing and training I noticed my recovery times had shortened, that I was less injury prone, and had a higher level of energy. Above all, the major changes were in my relationship to food preparation and intake. I became very concerned not just about veganism, but about proper nutrition. I’ve come across many vegans who are still drinking soda pop. The point is you can be vegan and still have an unhealthy diet.”

– Ultra marathoner Scott Jurek discussing the health benefits of the vegetarian lifestyle. While I’m a proud vegan who considers himself a solid 8 on the health scale, Scott does touch on my one pretty horrific vice. I LOVE DIET COKE. I know, I know, it’s awful and I’m trying to quit.  Don’t judge!
