According to The Huffington Post’s Canadian site, famed cyclist Lance Armstrong has been experimenting with a near-vegan diet with the help of triathlete-turned-author Rip Esselstyn, whose book The Engine 2 Diet extols the health wonders of the plant-based lifestyle. Under the guidance of Esselstyn, one of Armstrong’s training partners, the seven-time Tour de France winner has introduced more plant-based foods into his diet, eating foods such as whole grains, kale, and legumes. Though, so far, he is limiting his new health regimen to breakfast and lunch, Armstrong says he has noticed a significant improvement in his energy level and mental clarity since making the change.
