29: How to Fuel Through Plants with Kevin Duffy
Ready to hear how to power your life with plants? Good because I talked with Kevin Duffy, a plant-based tri-athlete that has finished 3 marathons, 5 full Ironmans and 7 half Ironmans all while working his day job as a Yonkers firefighter in New York. Kevin is the brains behind the health and wellness lifestyle brand Fire and Ironman. He was recently featured in the New York Times for the plant-based lifestyle that transformed his athletic performance over the last 3 years.
In this week’s episode, we talk about:
Why what you eat affects your overall performance and quality of life
How he shed 40lbs to take on, not one, but five Ironman competitions
What he eats to stay and how his plant-based lifestyle has helped him on the course and in the fire house
How he handles friends, family, and co-workers' criticism and critiques of his lifestyle choices
