Jurek Talks Veganism

Top vegan athlete Scott Jurek talks to The New York Times about training on a plant-based diet.

Recently, The New York Times featured plant-based ultramarathon runner Scott Jurek about his diet, training, and participation in the 2010 24-Hour Run, a world champion running event in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France, occurring today and tomorrow. Jurek says that most long-distance runners go vegan when competing, as it's difficult for the body to digest fat and protein, and vegan meals offer more balanced and nutritious foods. Writer Mark Bittman says that the top vegan athlete is the picture of health and energy, and that his diet is certainly not slowing him down.
