Life changer with food!
Since I changed my choice of food, some people made fun of me and even made some bad
jokes. Sadly, this is from someone that I know since young, a closed relative to be exact!
However, I am happy that I took that decision, and many well-known people do the same,
especially in the sports arena. The world number 1 tennis players like Novak Djokovic and
Serena Williams are among elite athletes that lead this trend. It is a diet of fruits, vegetables,
and grains while minimizing eating animal products and processed foods.
In the New York Times recently, I found out that Lewis Hamilton, who is Formula One
Champion and about to win his sixth Formula One champion, is also into this diet. Hamilton
is a great driver with an excellent team, but it is his change to a plant-based diet at the start of
2018 that he said was a big reason for his surge. He said it is about changing your mind. We
are taught all these things from a young age about what you should and should not eat. He
said it is about educating yourself and being open to it. It is something I wanted to do. It has
not been easy to learn new things and new ways, but he has felt so good for the year and a
half. It has been such a great decision.
Friends always ask me if I have enough energy with this kind of diet. The elite sports
athletes who are into plant-based proof the point. Hamilton said it has a high, positive impact
on his daily life, in terms of the energy that he has and the feeling I have when he is at work.
He is very rarely tired.
A plant-based diet brings other nutritional advantages to athletes. It offers more fiber. You
replace meats with fruits and vegetables, which means you are higher in vitamin C and
vitamin E, which are useful for keeping healthy.
For them, it seems like a life-changer, how about you? Are you still sitting on the sideline and
carry on the old beliefs?
