In Episode 86 I sit down with AFL player and vegan athlete Chris Mayne to talk about his transition to a plant-based diet as a professional athlete. Chris plays for the Collingwood football club, the largest club in Australia, and in the past few years has been able to take his game to the next level.
IN THIS EPISODE WE COVER:
The Ups and Downs of his career
Why he left the Fremantle football club for Collingwood
When he changes his diet and why
The impact that changing his diet has had on his life and football
A typical day of eating
What his teammates, friends and family think of the way he eats
Advice for young players and the importance of a good support group
