Following last week’s article about whether or not a vegan diet is suitable for athletes, the plant-based lifestyle is once again making a splash on The New York Times website. In a recent post on the publication’s Well blog, writer Christine Frietchen, editor-in-chief of, shares the positive impact a plant-based diet had on her running performance and overall health. After a poor marathon performance—coupled with her battle with weight loss—prompted her to eschew meat and dairy, Frietchen noticed immediate improvements to her physical and mental state, providing further evidence that adopting a plant-based lifestyle can fuel athletic endeavors. Frietchen cites renowned documentary Forks Over Knives as her main source of inspiration to continue pursuing her marathon-running goals.
