Brendan spent seven years as a professional Ironman triathlete and achieved this remarkable feat on a high-raw and 100% vegan diet.

Brendan now spends over 200 days a year on the road, lecturing about health, nutrition and peak performance.

"Brendan's knowledge is second to none. I only hope my competition doesn't read his book until after I'm done competing." - Simon Whitfield, Olympic gold medalist (triathlon, Sydney 2000)

Brendan's professional athletic career began in 1998. Over the course of only a few years, his performance quickly climbed, improving each year in Ironman triathlon racing. At the 1999 Ironman Canada, he finished 21st, the following year he placed 14th, then 11th, followed up by an 8th place finish in 2002 in Ironman Utah. In 2003 and 2006 Brendan won the National 50km Ultra Marathon Championships.

In 2003, Brendan was hit by a car while cycling, as a result could not race in 2004. He took advantage of the extra time on his hands and wrote a book that outlined the successful diet that had helped him improve his athletic performance at a world-class level. THRIVE and The Thrive Diet made Brendan a best-selling author in only five months.

Brendan Braizer, Athlete/Author "Vegan Sports Nutrition" Thu. Apr. 29

Brendan is recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on plant-based nutrition for athletes. In an online Cornell University certificate program, Brendan presents a lecture based on his best-selling books entitled: Plant-Based Diet and Elite Athleticism. It is part of a new course presented by eCornell and the T. Colin Campbell Foundation.

In 2006, Brendan was invited to address U.S. Congress on Capitol Hill, where he spoke of the significant social and economic benefits that could be achieved by improving personal health through better diet. The focus of his speech was to draw attention to the role that food plays in the prevention of most chronic diseases currently plaguing North Americans. In 2007, Brendan returned to Capital Hill to lobby against the Farm Bill and was named one of the most 25 Fascinating Vegetarians by VegNews magazine.

Jonathan Landsman, host of the Talk Hour says, "Brendan Braizer is an amazing athlete with a powerful message. It's easier than you think to make simple, yet effective changes in your life.
