The Thrive Diet

Lose weight by removing meat, dairy and processed foods from your diet.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Thrive Diet is professional Ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier's popular and fascinating eating plan that shuns meat, dairy and all processed foods in lieu of nutrient-dense foods and recipes.

This comprehensive guide is one of the most authoritative books on vegan and raw food lifestyles. With a 12-week meal plan you will learn not just how to eat according to The Thrive Diet, but also why this particular eating style is beneficial to your physical and mental health as well as to the health of the planet.

PRO
  • Very nutritious and balanced eating plan
  • Earth-friendly
  • Avoidance of refined and processed foods may reduce risk of disease and weight-related illnesses
CON
  • Strict eating plan may be difficult to adhere to for long periods of time
  • Long list of restricted foods
  • Many recipes require a significant amount of preparation time
DIET and NUTRITION

The Thrive Diet is a plant-based, dairy-free eating plan that also relies heavily on eating raw foods as often as possible. The plan includes a 12-week eating guide as well as more than 100 sample recipes, a shopping guide, staple ingredients and much more.

A sample menu might look like this:

  • For breakfast: a bowl of Banana Ginger Pear Cereal

  • For lunch: Creamy Pepper soup with Curry Lentil crackers

  • For dinner: Pecan Sunflower Burger

  • For dessert: Banana Coconut Pie

EXERCISE

As a trained athlete, there is little doubt that daily exercise is an integral component of Brazier's Thrive Diet. Exercise is broken down into three levels that vary according to ability and intensity. Each level comes with detailed instructions for the kinds of cardiovascular and strength-training exercises you are instructed to do as well as what to eat before and after workouts and a training journal that helps you keep track of your progress.

CONCLUSION

If you're willing to clean up your diet and significantly reduce your carbon footprint on the Mother Earth, The Thrive Diet may just be your thing. This vegan-based and largely raw food eating plan gets bonus points for its abundance of plant-based foods, healthy fats and active lifestyle. But if you're someone who can't imagine life without brie cheese, a burger or the occasional bag of chips, you might want to think otherwise about following it.

This is a quick (don't take longer than a few minutes to make a lot of these things) better for the world, little energy, nothing dies and you feel better. After one week just trying a few things I feel a great improvement in my stamina, running and recovery. Great.

One of the major advantages to this book is that the recipes are designed for one person. It's really easy to double or triple a single recipe if you are feeding more, but it's a chore -- and often impossible -- to reduce recipes. And 99.9% of all published recipes appear designed to feed the masses.

I think this is fantastic. His principals make sense and the food is different and very delicious.
I don't think it takes too much time, no more than a normal meal in fact , if not faster.
Start at a pace that is right for you and gently ease into it. It will change your life and your health.

This book is excellent. It's an easy and fun read. The education it provides makes the decision to eat healthier easier. My girlfriend and I have been doing it for about a year now, and it has certainly become a part of who we are now. We cheat on occasion, and that will happen. In the long run, it hasn't mattered. You'll never look at the supermarket the same. Haha!

I have been using the Thrive Diet recipes for a while now. Braizer recommends to start slow and build, so I have started with the smoothies, energy bars and pre/post workout recommendations - so far these things are fast, nutritious and making a large impact in my energy level.
