Take one part sports dietitian, mix with one part professional football player, and add a dash of whole food recipes. Pop it in the oven and eventually you get an excellent book called “The All-Pro Diet: Lose Fat, Build Muscle, and Live Like a Champion” (Rodale, 2009).
I sat down with Kansas City Chief’s Tony Gonzalez’s sports dietitian and co-author Mitzi Dulan, RD to get an idea about what the book has to offer people trying to lose weight. Mitzi explains how eating mostly whole plant foods and avoiding heavily processed foods can help you manage a healthy weight.
Listen now as we discuss some of the recipes in the book, like the coconut banana smoothie. YUM!
Through eating a diet low in animal protein and high in plant-based and unprocessed foods, Kansas City Chief’s Tight End Tony Gonzalez has gained more strength, stamina, and energy than ever before.
