Show Notes

This episode is chock full of expert advice on eating plant-based affordably...strength, fitness, and agility at any age...and sex

Yes, my friends, we get to learn some very interesting things about sex and how it can be taken to new heights when you’re eating like a vegan. This isn’t bait, this is real science and it applies to both men and women!

(We keep the conversation clean and informative, but it may not be suitable for young ears)

Ellen is a prolific author of 6 vegan health and fitness books including Eat Vegan on $4 a Day, Vegan Fitness for Mortals and Vegan Sex. She’s a nationally ranked sprinter and recently won the Gold at the National Senior Games in the 4x100 meters in the Women’s 65-69 age group.

She has placed in 173 5K or longer races for her age group and competes in everything from the 50 meters to the marathon, rare for anyone vegan or not. 

She’s a certified personal trainer, running coach, and sought after speaker. And, Her family was part of the breast cancer gene studies, and she is the only adult female in her family without it. 

In this interview, we also talk about:

  1. Why Ellen thinks many athletes drop out of their competitive sport as they get older, and the secret to maintaining high energy and mobility while reducing your risk of injury as you age.
  2. How races typically end with animal-derived foods as a reward for the competitors, so Ellen decided to sponsor a race with all vegan food - and I think you’ll be surprised to hear the community’s response to that.
  3. Plus, she provides very valuable expert advice for anyone at any age who’s starting or continuing a fitness program to remain injury-free and increase your stamina.

So, stamina in fitness and in the bedroom - so be sure to listen to the end.
