The Thrive Diet is a Gift
on March 20, 2007
The Thrive Diet is a gift - a gift to yourself and your commitment to live a better quality life. I am so grateful that Brendan has taken the time to share his deep experiences and knowledge with us in his new book.
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.
Even though we are reading the words of a top-level international athlete, Brendan's compassion and delivery is inspiring and hopeful. He is very heartfelt and to the point, with clear examples and scientific research to back his findings. Brendan also has the consciousness to consider how each action we take affects everything around us, how it impacts the world. He wants to help, and this is so evident the moment you begin reading his book.
All this for only $20! It's one of the best investments you can make in your life! The Thrive Diet is a "must have"! I can't wait to continue reading it and to take the steps that will change my life by helping me live with less stress and with more vitality.
