The Plant-Based Athlete




16 CECs / eBook / Quiz

The Plant-Based Athlete by Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke reveals the incontrovertible proof that the human body does not need meat, eggs, or dairy to be strong. Instead, research shows that a consciously calibrated plant-based diet offers the greatest possible recovery times, cell oxidation, injury prevention, and restorative sleep, and allows athletes to train more effectively, with better results.

I can not get to the test . When I first tried I never got to read anything not even where to type my name and the test said I had finished 75% so that meant I failed before I got it started so that was totally a waste of my money. I live in the country trees and internet isn’t great, that’s why in the beginning I inquired about written test. So nothing has gone good. After 20 some years. I am still working on getting my CEC’s . Thanks for asking. Patti Webb
