My guest today, Josh Howell is passionate about using his athletic achievements to draw attention to the completely unnecessary horrors humans inflict on animals. In fact Josh built the fitness that allowed him to run a 100 mile ultra marathon – fuelled purely by whole plant foods – once he became vegan.
So this conversation is yet another chance to bust any remaining stereotypes of vegans excelling because of the bodies they built while they were still consuming animals.
Josh is all about spreading good vibes while ignoring the social norms that so many of us can feel trapped by.
No animals products. No Alcohol. No Coffee. No Salt. No Oil. NO Problem!!
Whether it’s an ironman event, an ultramarathon or a 300km cycle Josh powers his performance with high carb / high raw, whole plant food.
Let’s chat with Josh Howell, a Vegan Ultra Athlete For The Animals.
In this conversation we cover:
- Josh’s becoming vegan story.
- How the vegan lifestyle has helped Josh in his athletic performance and recovery.
- Real strength is standing up for those more vulnerable than us.
- True health being a matter of not just personal health also the health of your family, your community and the planet.
- How swapping to plant food transformed the health of Josh’s dog Roxy!
How amazing would it be if every single vegan athlete was as committed to activism and animal rights as Josh?
I love that he makes time to get out on the street and have conversations with non-vegans. Of course that’s not everyones preferred way to advocate however I really do believe it’s vital for those of us who are vegan to be bold and unapologetic in sharing it.
Whether it’s in the singlets we wear when exercising, in the delicious food we share or by having the courage to have those sometimes uncomfortable conversations with loved ones.100 Mile Ultra As A #Vegan Why Eat Animals? #veganathlete #ultramarathon Click To Tweet I find there’s obviously two different camps. We can either be positive and keep charging or we can spiral down and get sad and depressed. So I always default to the positive one. Josh Howell Click To Tweet
