The Plant-Based Athlete
with Anita Bean, Registered Nutritionist
Hosted by Rohini Bajekal, Nutritionist & Board Member of Plant-Based Health Professionals UK
(CPD Accredited with 1 CPD Hour from the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine and CME accredited for the LM MOC)
The participant will learn how a well-planned plant-based diet can support their health, physical performance, and recovery and be confident that they can get all protein and other nutrients they need to build and repair muscle. The presentation provides scientific evidence showing that plant-based diets do not hinder performance, as well as practical examples of meals to help participants create a healthy plant-based eating plan to meet their training goals.
What will I learn from this webinar?
- A well-planned plant-based diet can provide all the energy and nutrients required for optimum performance and recovery
- Animal protein is not required to build and repair muscle since plant proteins can provide sufficient amino acids
- The timing of nutrient intake around exercise can enhance performance
