International Sports Day: athletes on a vegan diet. Experiment
We prove in real practice that ethical nutrition isn't an obstacle to success in sports!
International Day of Sport for Development and Peace has been celebrated on April 6 since 2014 around the world. The United Nations General Assembly established this holiday in 2013 with the support of the International Olympic Committee to annually celebrate the power of sport to promote social change, community development, peace, and understanding. Activists of the "Bright Side of Power" campaign couldn't stay away and conducted an experiment on the eve of the holiday: four athletes, who follow a mostly traditional diet, passed the Plant-Based Challenge and continued to lead a normal lifestyle and exercise. After 10 days on a vegan diet, they shared with us their experiences, feelings, fears, and impressions.
