Lance Armstrong Going Plant-based

I've wondered how long this would take—for someone as smart as Lance Armstrong to recognize that he should be eating a plant-based diet. He is now two-thirds of the way there.

Armstrong is friends with Rip Esselstyn, a former triathlete and founder of the Engine 2 (plant-based, vegan) diet—and son of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn whose plant-based approach to preventing and reversing heart disease is healing former president Bill Clinton's heart. As Armstrong has moved from his pro cycling career to triathlete competition he has begun training with (Rip) Esselstyn again and has adopted a plant-based diet for breakfast and lunch.

Effects: He says his energy level and mental sharpness are better than they have ever been. Read the whole story here.
