    1 thought on “No Meat Athlete: Run on Plants and Discover Your Fittest, Fastest, Happiest Self

    1. thought this was a good book for people of various levels, but especially those trying to understand the vegan/vegetarian - fitness connection. as a vegetarian runner, i don't find it all that difficult, but then i know some people struggle more with maintaining healthy weight, muscle, and nutrition balance with a vegetarian/vegan diet and high activity. a good resource! i especially liked the "formula" recipes that had a base recipe on one side, and lots of options for mixing and matching on th [...]

    2. Pretty basic, and too much on running programs (e.g how to run your first 5K, etc.), but I liked the recipes, which are actually "formulas." (And there is a separate cookbook, as well.)

    3. I've been a fan and follower of the No Meat Athlete blog since it began, and I was very excited about the release the book, even though I've been a vegetarian for more than 20 years. Of course, it's packed with information about starting a vegetarian/vegan diet, which is great for new vegetarians/vegans. Even long-timers like me might appreciate a refresher on the basics. But the best part is how Matt focuses on the application of a vegan diet to the athlete's lifestyle and training regimen. The [...]

    4. I wish I had owned this book 6-12 months ago when I was a new runner and vegetarian attempting the switch to vegan. Matt has written a great book that is approachable, in plain language and an invaluable resource to people ready to set goals an make a change in their life. If you're plant curious and/or considering buying a pair of shoes and trying your hand at running this book really should be in your hands. Excellent

    5. I'm training for a century bike ride and needed some help with pre-, during-, and in-between-workout nutrition. This book gave a lot of great recipes for homemade energy gels and bars as well as a few recipes for regular meals that I'm going to try. That chia seed pre-workout drink? I can't wait to try that!

    6. It's a good book, well worth the $0.99 I paid for it :) After poking around a few years in the running/triathlon community and researching vegetarian/vegan eating, there really wouldn't be much new here. But The smartest people take all the common sense information out there and compile it into an easy to understand/follow compendium, all in one place.

    7. This book is outstanding! I have it both on Kindle and in the DTB version. A great way to learn how to be a vegan athlete. I'm a runner as well and I find Matt's book and his podcasts to be super helpful. Great recipes, great info. Very highly recommended!

    8. This book helped me understand my diet as a vegetarian and the guides I can follow to help me become a vegan. I have a very active lifestyle and have always wanted to get into running but feel defeated every time I try but after reading this book I feel like I’m going to continue my running journey and hopefully reach some goals. I thought it was written in a very understanding way, not just from his point of view which I think will help meat eaters to understand why people decide to go vegan [...]

    9. This book was nice surprise that stumble upon in my library's ebook collection. I am not a vegetarian, but I'm not a huge fan of meat so this book was helpful for me in learning how to get adequate proteins from other sources to fuel my workouts. I found the authors' information about basic nutrition concepts to be very helpful as a latecomer to fitness and healthy eating. Highly readable for those at any level of their fitness training. The recipes included in the book are great as well.

    10. I'm a No Meat Athlete fan. I listen to the blog when I run. I've used the cookbook. I've followed the training plans. This isn't great literature, but if you're vegan (or want to be) and you fancy yourself a bit of an athlete (or would like to be), this is worth reading.

    11. I would highly recommend this book for new or aspiring vegan runners. As both a vegan and a runners, some of the information was more of a review for me but I did really enjoy the book. I am looking forward to making several of the recipes.

    12. About four weeks I decided I will run a marathon, and Matt Frazier is to blame.When I started running, and even months afterwards, a marathon was like my anti-goal - there was no way I was going to even think about doing that. But whenever I think something like that, it tends to happen exactly the opposite way, and this time is no exception. I had discovered his blog pretty early on when I started running, and found a lot of his advice very helpful, so I bought his book as well. Most importantl [...]

    13. I read this while sleeping over on the couch in my childhood best friend's living room, my unofficial running coach and vegetarian inspiration (two veg kids! and former vegan inspiration but we're both unfortunately 'formers' now). This book is a great beginner's guide to both running and fueling oneself after you upgrade your workout regime. The latter is harder than it looks, I discovered, once I started running and dealing with hunger, soreness, and exhaustion despite getting nominally health [...]

    14. In his book, Frazier criss crosses back and forth between ideas, concepts and his own opinions in an attempt to string together a coherent guide for the "no meat athlete." Unfortunately, while his good intentions are evident, I think he fails in completing his overall mission. The first section Frazier spends contradicting his own writing as he cites "animal rights" as a reason he eats a vegan diet. However, he then later hypocritically instructs the reader that there is "nothing inherently unhe [...]

    15. I read most of this book last year, but didn't count it because I skipped certain parts (most of the asides that were written by other people, for example).I decided to re-read it all again for a two reasons.1) I used the 5k training program in the book and am now using the half marathon training program. I wanted to be sure I didn't miss anything.2) Matt is a friend and I wanted to be sure I read every word. What I love about Matt's approach to a plant-based diet is he is not preachy and he doe [...]

    16. NoMeatAthlete started as a blog several years ago, and I have been following it for the past two or three years both as a vegetarian and as a future endurance athlete. Matt has a simple and approachable writing style that cuts right to the point along with a heaping side of inspiration. He doesn't preach. He researches and presents what has worked for him along with the struggle. No sugar coating here nor is he a drill sergeant. Just a down to earth dad who cares about food and how it affects hi [...]

    17. Je cours déjà depuis plusieurs années maintenant mais il est vrai que j'ai de moins en moins envie de manger de viandeJ'ai eu envie et besoin de lire ce livre afin de me rendre compte qu'il est tout à fait possible d'être athlète et végétarien (voir même végétalien).Il y a beaucoup de témoignages d'ultra runner et même de culturiste, ces témoignages apportent une aide précieuse, nous ne sommes pas seuls à vouloir passer ce cap alimentaire et c'est possible ! Ce livre se compose d [...]

    18. I picked up this book as a long time vegan looking for some tips on optimizing my eating for the cycling and running that I have been doing for many years. This book did not have much in the way of new information for either a long time vegan or long time athlete. However, I still enjoyed the book and would recommend to anyone looking for more basic info.One of the best things about this book was the lack of preaching. There was no bashing of meat eating, just the focus on why and how a vegan di [...]

    19. Can you build muscles while eating only fruits, vegetables and grains? Yes, is the answer given by the book No Meat Athlete. Author Matt Frazier has a chatty style that is easy to read. The book is about health, not ethics. Frazier defines the vegan diet as “plant based” and says that some people eat mostly plant-based, but occasionally eat eggs, honey, fish and/or meat and still get lots of benefits. The nutrition expert of the book, Matthew Ruscigno, gives us one basic rule to follow: eat [...]

    20. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a plant-based diet and/or running. The author has a very simple, down-to-earth approach about both plant-based eating and running. As someone who has been eating a plant-based diet for several years and been a runner for most of that time, I really loved the recipes and tips for fueling my running workouts. With a few 5Ks under my belt now, I've set my goals higher, hoping to run a 10K and 1/2 marathon next year. The author provided trai [...]

    21. This encouraging book was a quick read that pretty much acknowledged much that I was either already doing or was aware of as sound practice, certainly nothing my husband (a running specialist) or I would disagree with. I would not use as much fat or sugar as in the recipes included and would certainly never add oil to a smoothie. The recipes I tried were delicious and simple to create. I feel inspired to continue running on plants. I loved the many testimonial contributions from other vegan athl [...]

    22. This is a really great guide for newcomers to a plant-based diet, running, or both. As a vegan who has just started running, I felt like I got the most out of the running section, but I also loved the recipes here. I loathe sports drinks, but if I can make my own? Way better. Same with gels. The conversational tone of the book makes it approachable, like Matt KNOWS that running and veganism are both scary, scary things to most people, and he tells us about both in a way that makes them seem not [...]

    23. I've been running for a few now and have just recently cut down on meat significantly, in fact it's now been almost month since I've eaten meat. The transition has been remarkably easy and I like the fact that my diet now consists of a huge variety of vegetables and fruits. I've run every single day this month, anywhere between 5K-21K per run. I thought I'd be quite fatigued by now but I seem to be holding steady/increasing pace a little. Does it have anything to do with my diet? I'm not complet [...]

    24. Always wanted to start running, but never actually put your thoughts into action? This book is for you. Already a runner but you would appreciate some advice on how to get better, faster, fitter? This book is for you. Thinking about becoming a vegetarian/vegan but are not sure if you could be active on this kind of diet? This book is for you. Already a vegetarian/vegan but would like to learn more about nutrition and sports? This book is for you. Looking for some delicious and easy vegan recipes [...]

    25. Great plant based recipes designed to give you a balanced diet of protein, iron, healthy fats and vitamins laid out in an easy to understand style. Many helpful cooking and sports tips included. After nine years as a dedicated Vegetarian my eyes are now opened to the possibilities of a Vegan diet that supports fitness/exercise. The one thing that has held me back from going Vegan was the erroneous belief that it will cause fatigue and general ill health. I'm glad to have now been re-educated abo [...]

    26. Love the idea of the book. introduction to a vegan sporty lifestyle including recipes. second Part is the running aspect. how to run when etc. finishing with Training Plans for 5 k 10k and half marathon. I only give 4 instead of five Stars coz I really did Not like the extensive Talk about habit building. it is probably a big issue but just Not mine. Would have preferred to dig deeper into running and nutrition.

    27. This book is so fantastic, that I bought myself a copy! Matt tells you what to do, and how to do it. The advice is down-to-earth and easy to follow. I love recipes, they are not very hard to prepare and very yummy. The style of English is easy to read, and text is spiced with different testimonials. There is information about different electronic resources (blogs and sites). I'd give this book two thumbs up.
