How does a trash-eating vegan get the energy to play soccer? I imagined him being slow and almost in a stupor from subsisting on thrown away bagels and bell peppers.
it is a myth that being vegan you dont/cant get enough protein, calcium etc.
You can, and I do.
The only thing that you can't get in a pure vegan diet is vitamin b12 which must be suplemented.
Also there are many vegan atheltes, especialy long distance runners.
Many of the top marathon runners are vegan/near vegan.
Also triathlon competitors are often vegan/near vegan.

Brendan Brazier triathlete is also vegna and has a website
