I am an Oxford educated Biologist, coming to the end of a very successful career in education. I am based in the North of England. I am also a cyclist and a vegan. These go together because, some time ago, I made the decision to move to a 100% plant based diet as a way to try and maintain my strength and fitness in later life and to enable me to continue to cycle. The benefits I have derived have been miraculous! My experience (as well as my background in Biology) has meant that I have been able to develop a good knowledge and understanding of diet, health and fitness – although I have seen the benefits in my 60s, the same benefits can be achieved by anyone prepared to move to a plant based diet.
What I have found remarkable is that I have always kept myself in pretty decent shape - at least I thought I was till I moved to a WFPB diet - but I am in no doubt that I have now moved to another level. I should have done it 40 years ago!
I was much influenced by reading 2 books – ‘Eat and Run’ by the ultramarathon runner Scott Durek and ‘The China Study’ by T.Colin Campbell and T. Campbell.
T. Campbell has also written ‘The Campbell Plan’ – in which he explains the benefits of a Whole Food Plant Based Diet (WFPB) and how to change over to such a diet.
I am living proof of these benefits and I am available to speak and explain why I think everyone should consider very seriously such a diet.
In terms of food production, this diet also has massive implications for the environment, global warming and climate change.
My talk can be tailored to your needs and can include :
- Human dietary needs
- Different ways in which these needs can be satisfied
- Pros and cons of different diets
- Advantages of a Whole Food Plant Based Diet
- Evidence of these advantages
- How to move to a WFPB diet and what to include in it
- The benefits I have experienced while on this diet
I believe that ANYONE moving towards a WFPB diet will find that they will maintain a healthy weight, will have little, if any, illness and will have much more energy and vitality.
Invite me to speak and let me inspire you to think about your diet!!
