One of the most pervasive dietary myths is that you need to eat animal protein to be healthy, fit, and strong, especially if you are an athlete.
Most people who still believe this are unaware that there are world-class professional athletes competing at the highest levels who eat 100% plant-based diets, including powerlifters and NFL players.
Enter plant-based MD, James Loomis, the Medical Director of Barnard Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Loomis has served as the team internist for the St. Louis Rams and the St. Louis Cardinals, as well as the tour physician for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. He practiced internal medicine at St. Luke’s Hospital in St. Louis, where he was also the Director of Prevention and Wellness. He was also on the clinical faculty of the Department of Internal Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine.
Dr. Loomis is also a featured expert in a documentary that I highly recommend called The Game Changers, produced by Arnold Schwarzenegger. This film features world-class professional athletes, competing at the highest levels while eating plant-based diets, and shatters the longstanding myth that humans need to eat animal protein to be fit, healthy, and strong.
In our interview, we discuss plant protein vs animal protein, how pro athletes thrive on plant-based diets, how the meat industry influences public health policy, and so much more. Enjoy!
