Featuring a 12-week meal plan, over 100 allergen-free recipes with raw food options?including recipes for energy gels, sport drinks, and recovery foods?and a complementary exercise plan, The Thrive Diet is ?an authoritative guide to outstanding performance” (Neal D.

  1. I actually bought this book after posting the Amazon ad for it above. I’m about finished with it and I’m not exactly sure what to think.

    The author essentially advocates a 100% vegetarian diet emphasizing certain ingredients for athletes as well as eating during certain times (ie: before workouts, for recovery, etc).

    Most of the information in the first part of the book makes perfect sense, especially the fact that we all should be eating foods that provide our bodies with more energy than it takes our body to digest it. However, once he got into the recipes, I started backing away a bit.

    The book has a very “California” feel to it in that the author assumes that you can walk into any grocery or health food store and purchase organically grown hemp. That’s not the case here in Texas.

    I do like the underlying premise of the book (your diet should be primarily plant-based) but I’m not sure I’ll actually be able to implement it the way the author suggests.

    Anybody else have any feedback?
