THE THRIVE DIET by Brendan Brazier.

The Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier.The Thrive Diet This diet is based on strong scientific facts and personal experience - we like this part a lot!. Here is the story: the author had a goal to become a professional ironman triathlon athlete. To achieve his dream, he studied the training routines of his competitors and found very small differences between all the routines.

If training discrepancies were minimal and natural talent can only get you so far, what caused some athletes to pull out ahead of the rest of the pack? The most significant difference I found between the upper-echelon elites and the moderately-performing athlete had little to do with training-it was almost all about recovery. Breakthrough performances are hinged on the rate at which the body can regenerate itself after training. Realizing this, quick and complete recovery became my focus. And as I discovered, diet has the single greatest impact on recovery. In fact, food choices can account for up to 80 percent of the total recovery process.

Stress, cortisol and recovery

The more stressed you are, the more cortisol your adrenals produce, the worse you sleep, the more you crave for coffee and sugar. In addition to spoiling your sleep and making you more and more exhausted, the cortisol also prevents you from losing weight and actually makes you gain weight. Simply put, cortisol prevents your body form naturally recovering.

The diet

Brendan discovered the regenerating power of fresh vegan foods through his own experience. Because these foods are full of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and life energy, they are very easily digested and assimilated by the body. They give energy and help the body to rebalance and regenerate itself at the deepest level.

The Thrive Diet primarily consists of foods that are:

  • Raw or cooked at low temperature.
  • Naturally alkaline-forming foods to pH balance the body.
  • High in nutrients your body can easily use.
  • Vitamin- and mineral-rich whole-food from non-overstimulating sources, to rebalance the body.

General guidelines for the Thrive Diet

  • Consume enough natural nutrients to support your level of activity and the biological regeneration of your cells, in order to reduce aging.
  • Fulfill your nutritional needs by consuming nutrient-dense whole foods, rather than supplementing with tablets.
  • Stay away from denatured foods like refined, processed foods.
  • Gain energy through natural nourishment, not stimulation.
  • Eat efficient and easy to digest foods
  • Rebalance by greatly reducing your intake of sugary and starchy foods.

The Pros

This diet is super healthy and helps you drive your performance (physical or intellectual) up through the roof. It will also help you lose weight and stop your bad cravings. Finally, because it's a regenerating diet, it will give a youthful and glowing boost to your skin and hair.

The Cons

Go Green, Live Rich It's expensive and you need some exotic foods, which are not easy to find sometimes. For the carnivorous part of the population, it may be impossible to follow, as it's a pure vegan diet. However, if you are concerned about the environment and want to help curb global warming, giving up meat -at least for 12 weeks- would be a BIG and significant contribution on your part as raising cattle and distributing the meat is very heavy on the environment. At the same time, you will save money! You can find out more about money saving green tips is the book Go Green, Live Rich: 50 Simple Ways to Save the Earth and Get Rich Trying

Bottom line

We really think this diet is worth trying for your beauty and your health. If you think you cannot do it exactly as stated, you can at least try to stick to it as much as possible: that would already be a big vitality boost for you. In this time of economic trouble and high stress, The Thrive Diet can save you a lot of trouble. Give it a try. Enjoy!
