The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

You don't have to change everything - start with more plants. Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan, talks to the authors of "The Plant Based Athlete," Matt Frazier (founder of the No Meat Athlete community) and Robert Cheeke (vegan bodybuilder) and the how and why of eating more plants.  Find out what Joe and these experts have to say about the protein hoax, and an easy first step to getting more plants in your diet.

More about Matt Frazier - he’s a vegan ultrarunner, best known as the founder of the No Meat Athlete movement and author of The No Meat Athlete Cookbook. Matt found he could run faster and longer when he began eating a plant-based diet, and qualified for the Boston Marathon and completed his first 100-mile ultramarathon soon after doing so.
