Plant-based diet for performance with Nigel Mitchell
We’re delighted to welcome Nigel Mitchell onto this week’s 33Fuel podcast. Nigel was head of nutrition at Team GB cycling and Team Sky before moving to his current role as head of nutrition at Team EF Education First pro cycling team.
Nigel has devised the fuelling strategies for some of the world’s best endurance athletes and his riders have won Grand Tours and Olympic medals, so we’re thrilled to speak with him about performance nutrition.
This conversation explores the performance potential of a plant-based diet. We love that Nigel isn’t dogmatic about this topic – he’s certainly not a raging vegan and firmly believes balance is required. In his day job, Nigel assesses nutritional strategies with a scientific, evidence-based head on his shoulders.
So, if you want to improve your diet and incorporate more plant-based nutrition without any compromise in performance, this interview is for you!
