Vegetarians and athletes: Is it possible?
There are an increasing number of famous and elite athletes who perform and are vegetarians or vegan. The former include ace tennis player Martina Navratilova and Olympian Carl Lewis, but vegetarian champions are now found in all areas of sports.
Among them is our very own George Laraque, former NHL player, who kindly agreed to take part in this series of videos on the challenges of vegetarianism.
In this third video, beginner vegetarian Geneviève Blanchard looks for the expert advice of Georges Laraque and sport dietician Pearle Nerenberg, author of the book The Nutrition Edge for Hockey Performance.
