This is not so much a diet book as an insight into a different way of eating. We've really enjoyed changing our approach to eating and the recipes are tasty and filling. Great food for athletes and non-athletes from a very readable book.

BEST (and only) BOOK FOR VEGAN ATHLETES 31 janvier 2008
Par Anthony Torres - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Thrive Diet is a relatively easy to follow program for athletes that have food allergies, are vegan, or just want to get their nutrition from whole foods. The hardest thing of going plants only is accepting you can get solid protein and nutrition. Thankfully, the author knows how to research and presents his findings dispassionately and with reason. The page on protein powders is worth the book itself. No where else have I found this information, and I've been looking through all vegan, vegetarian, and bodybuilding books. Keep in mind that this book is soy and tofu free, due to the author's concerns with allergies. That's a good thing. Tofu/Soy products are used MORE in N. America. I'm not anti-soy. Just pro-variety (and frankly soy hasn't gotten me to where I want to be anyhow.)

An important part of this book are the early chapters on different types of stress and how nutrition can assist recuperation. The author is not a big supplement taker, and focuses on nourishment rather than calories/protein/carbs counting. The recipes are simple to prepare. It's actually, dare I say it, kind of lazy food prep, minimal tools (food processor & blender), and maximum return. These are positives. Other vegan cookbooks have 20 steps, consume an hour of time and the end result is just a side dish. Of potatoes....

Now, the book is affordable, but there's a sticker shock that comes from going whole foods whole cloth. Thankfully I have a Whole Foods within 8 miles. They had most everything on the list, except yellow pea protein powder. The clerk said the co. that made that went bankrupt, so it's put a lot of folks in a lurch. My total bill? $227.00 The protein powders are about $15 each, the oils are around that price point, and maca and chlorella cost $15 a bottle. AND THIS IS WITH ALMOST NO PRODUCE OR VEGETABLES. $227. The upside is the convenience of Whole Foods having all this stuff. Nutrition costs...

I copied the shopping list to a pdf here: [...] Or and Click on the Thrive link. Again, it's costly to just jump into it, so maybe transition using the energy bar recipes and grow from there. Still, this book is awesome and if you're serious about training or casually interested in losing weight or just understanding HOW your body functions, get this book.

UPDATE: Feb 09 2011- The prior link to the shopping list pdf was dead for a few years, so I updated the link. Otherwise, review is as stands. Thanks!

A Dream Come True 17 juillet 2008
Par Fearless - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Sounds a bit over the top, but I'm an actress in Hollywood with an athletic build. I've always found it hard to stay really lean, even though I'm a hard-core athlete, and that makes it hard to compete with the waifs. I bought Brendan's book two months ago and for the first time I am shredded without starving myself. I feel better than I ever have in my entire life and I honestly can't believe it.

I love the diet, love the food, love the philosophy. (I'm also an environmentalist)

I read the book cover-to-cover, excited by the philosophy but dismayed by the foreign foods that I needed to learn to locate, sprout and soak in order to start. This was just initial panic. I got over it.

I started with the smoothies and energy bars. I bought the Vega Complete Whole Food Optimizer he recommends and I found that making the smoothies was super-fast (throw my fruit, water, optimizer in a blender and go) and that while the energy bars took a little time, I could make a 2-month supply at a time, and then have a quick, easy snack always ready. I like them best frozen, so I'm not worried about spoilage. That was week one.

Week two I did my big shop (it was a bit pricey to start, but it's been very cheap ever since) which took a little to psych up for, washed and sanitized my fruits and veggies, and started sprouting. As soon as my sprouts were ready (a few days later) I took a full day and made pizza, burgers, crackers, sauces, salad dressings, etc. I basically made a little of everything. The joy was that I then could eat all week without doing anything but opening up the fridge. Since then, I've run out of things one by one, but since I've done it before, I had all of the ingredients on hand and it was no big deal to replenish; getting started was the hard part. I was glad I just bit the bullet and did it all at once.

Sprouting and soaking have become part of my routine and I actually find it kind of fun. It's very fast and I get the "farmer's joy" of seeing the first shoots every few days.

I keep Brendan's book on the table and I read part of it every day while I eat. I'll probably keep doing that until I feel like I have fully absorbed it and can really remember what nutrients are in which food.

Last night I did I bathing suit scene in my acting class and didn't think twice about stripping down in front of everyone. That's a first.

I cannot tell you how wonderful it feels to look in the mirror and feel great about my body, without having to punish myself to get the look I want. When I told my husband he said, "I never thought I'd hear you say those words." Yeah, neither did I.

Get it for the recipes, not the science 6 septembre 2010
Par David G. Andersen - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The good: A focus on vegan athlete nutrition with pretty good recipes and nutritional recommendations.
The bad: The science and explanations behind the foods are inaccurate and lacking.

The good, in a bit more detail: If you're looking for good recipes for post-workout shakes, etc., "Thrive" is a good source. As others have noted, most of the recipes are from basic foods, if some that we may not all have in our pantries yet. Brazier's later books tend to have a lot of recipes that say "buy my Vega stuff and mix...", but this one doesn't. The recipes are athlete-tested (less likely to make you feel sick when eating them during a workout!). The mix of nutritional and "when to eat what" advice is good, and matches well with what other sources recommend, but translated into a framework that works well for the vegan athlete. The recipes have variety, and in many cases, incorporate a set of protein sources that other books don't. I haven't seen another source of recipes for vegan energy bars or energy gels.

The bad: If you're looking for an accurate and clear explanation of the science behind it, don't buy this one -- buy "Eat to Live" (Fuhrman), "The Spectrum" (Ornish), "The China Study" (Campbell), or "The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook" (Barnard), or perhaps "The Food Revolution" (Robbins). Brazier's explanations of the rationale behind his recommendations are scientifically bogus, falling back on claims about live enzymes aiding nutrition and broad categories of "alkaline" foods, and a fairly wacko theory about refined foods taking more energy to digest than you get out of them.

The union of these two makes for a book that is reasonable to have on your bookshelf, particularly given the lack of other good vegan-athlete targeted cookbooks, but that makes you want to gnash your teeth in frustration every few pages when the author veers off into another unsubstantiated theory. Despite that, though, the recipes are reasonable, and the food sources are great. Just know what you're getting before you buy it.

Just what I was looking for 6 mars 2008
Par A. D. Proctor - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is exactly what I was looking for. A whole foods plant-based diet for athletes. Usually all you can find in this category are books for losing weight but this one is all about getting the fuel you need to excel in sport and in life. It's also a great nutritional education on whole foods and the physiological effects of stress in all its forms and how good whole foods can support the body. Brendan's recipes are really creative. I was originally suspicious of how the 'pizzas' would taste what with their base being made out of things like chickpeas and ground sunflower seeds but I have already made one and can report that it was delicious! The smoothies are also fantastic and I have already seen the amazing endergy gains. I whole-heartedly recommend this book to altheletes, weekend warriors and stressed out corporates - you will feel the difference.

Some useful info but not what I expected. 30 juin 2009
Par Suzanne Lueer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I actually have a copy of "The Thrive Diet", which I can't seem to find here, but the text appears to be identical, or nearly so.

It strikes me as ironic, and frustrating, that a book claiming to be "the whole food way" in fact advocates use of a variety of supplements and protein powders. If you live near a Whole Foods, you should be able to buy most of these products (at a high price); otherwise, you will likely need to order them online. I can appreciate ordering one or two good supplements that are outside the realm of a regular grocery store - but for the most part, I want to be able to just eat whole foods that are relatively easy to find. I also do not consider protein powder to be a whole, unprocessed food. I feel as though if you can't get enough protein from a diet of whole foods, there is something missing from that diet. Of course, *if* you are a triathlete who trains 35 hours a week as Brazier was doing, you might more protein than an ordinary vegan diet can provide.

I agree with the previous reviewer who wished that Brazier had offered more research. Why am I to believe what Brazier writes? He doesn't seem to have any credentials, aside from being successful as an athlete. He talks about types of stress and the possible diseases it may cause, but I'm not sure where he's getting this information. The diet in this book may be a very good diet for a vegan athlete, but is it the answer for someone with fibromyalgia, arthritis, or diabetes? If so, where's the science behind this? And where are the specific suggestions for people who have these diseases? Brazier makes this out to be a book for overall wellness, but I think it's primarily for healthy, athletic people.

Any book that recommends elimination of refined foods and an increase in fruits and vegetables is on the right track. This book has many good suggestions. I will probably try some of the products and recipes. I just wish it were a little more thorough and practical overall.
