Lance Armstrong is the latest person to give the all-vegan Engine 2 Diet a shot. Armstrong’s basically combining this approach with Bittman’s “Vegan Until 6” concept, in which he strictly follows the Engine 2 Diet throughout the day, and then eats whatever he wants for dinner. It seems to be going very well so far:
Even when you’re training really hard, it’s normal that you would have certain things for lunch or certain things for breakfast, and then have this dip, or almost like a food coma … I don’t experience that anymore. My energy level has never been this consistent, and not just consistent, but high. I’m a big napper — I couldn’t even take a nap these days if I wanted to.
The other thing — I expected to get rid of that dip, but I didn’t expect the mental side of it, and the sharpness and the focus that I’ve noticed.
We’ll have a lot more full-time vegans as omnivores recognize that part-time veganism is super-easy and has countless payoffs. Link.
