In his book "Cycling Past 50" Joe Friel has some things to say about vegetarians that worry me. I began eating 99.99% raw September of last year. Some condiments are not raw that go on my salad.
I was around 190 when I started and have maintained 155.5 lbs. give or take a pound for about 7 months now. Friel states in his book that vegetarians don't get enough amino acids (proteins) or iron among other things and that this hurts their performance. Yet there are quite a few professional athletes who are vegan.
How do you maintain the riggors of bicycling being vegan?
I am starting to train using his methodology along with Armstrong's and his former trainer/coach.
