Plant-Based Nutrition for Endurance Athletes with Sports Dietitian Kelly Jones The Eat for Endurance Podcast

    • Nutrition

Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to Episode 78 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast. Fellow Sports Dietitian Kelly Jones (MS RD CSSD) of Kelly Jones Nutrition returns to the show today to chat with me about plant-based nutrition for endurance athletes.

Kelly calls her diet plant-forward, while I am very much a plant-loving omnivore. As this show seeks to demonstrate, there are many different ways to eat to feel good, enjoy life, and perform well, as long as the eating pattern you are following meets your individual energy needs and macro and micro nutrient requirements.

Plant-based eating can absolutely work well for endurance athletes, just as omnivorous eating can also work well. It’s worth noting that there are MANY reasons why people choose to include more plants in their diet that have nothing to do with performance. But with the growing popularity of plant-based eating including among endurance athletes, it begs the question - does going vegan or vegetarian improve performance? We’ll of course get into this. You can also check out past interviews I’ve had with high-performing vegan athletes if you’re interested, such as Mike Wardian (Ep. 26, 53), Sage Canaday (Ep 71), and Yassine Diboun (Ep. 34).

So if you’re feeling a bit plant-curious and want to learn more, please enjoy my conversation all about plant-based eating and endurance performance with Kelly Jones.
