The Thrive Diet is a solution for many ailments that we encounter on a daily basis from living on this stressful planet. He is keenly aware of and addresses the role that food plays in the prevention of most chronic diseases, stress, weight, and aging. Brendan has written in a very personal fashion, relating his experiences and his path to discovering the diet in which to thrive at the top level as an elite athlete - and with a plant based diet.
However, The Thrive Diet is also for you and me. It is for my mother and father, for the person who suffers with digestive issues, the person who cannot sleep deeply at night, the person who is so stressed out they don't know what to do. It is for the person who doesn't have enough energy to accomplish what they need to in the course of their day, the person who doesn't have time to cook but wants to eat better, the person who is holding extra weight and is suffering from health issues because of it.
The Thrive Diet is gratefully written by a man who is healthy, extremely intelligent, determined and sensitive enough to discriminate and find out the truth in order to reach to top of his field--both as a professional Ironman tri-athlete and the Canadian Ultra Marathon Champion for 2003 and 2007. Brendan has given a lot of answers you might have searched for your entire life- and possibly not found - and they are there for you simply by reading his book. He explains the process step by step so you can succeed. Brendan has great experiences with success and is sharing his path with us.Read more ›
I love his premise on reducing all types of stress (nutritional, psychological, environmental) and his explanations for his Thrive diet. Truly amazing. And definitely following his advice will get you extremely healthy! I have many books on health, and the good ones stress the same elements: eat more vegetables. Especially green leafy veggies, plus switching a plant-based diet. Of course there's so much more, which is why I recommend reading this book.
I would say my only gripe is Brendan doesn't footnote; he does mention a lot of research and science-based studies but there are no further noting/resources about these studies. I know what he says is correct as I've read other books on plant-based nutrition (like Eat To Live book by Joel Fuhrman, MD and Michael Greger, MD DVD series) who do mention similar studies and research and provide the footnotes (and/or shows the studies on the DVD). I figure Brendan is coming from an athletes perspective, not from a researcher and/or MD, so he doesn't need to provide all the medical and clinical studies.
I have tried many of his recipes and I enjoy all his smoothies, pre/post exercise, cereals, and some of his veggie recipes. I have had to adapt many of his other recipes to suit my own tastes, but the recipes are definitely a good starting point.Read more ›
