The latest edition of Brendan Brazier’s book THRIVE: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Life is set to hit shelves this month. Many of you are already quite familiar with both Brendan’s book and the Thrive diet. But this edition has one very noticeable addition: a brand new foreword written by the latest & greatest aspiring vegan – Hugh Jackman!
“There's every chance that I will be a vegan by the time you read this," Hugh writes. "I am no longer interested in the 'at any costs' part of the equation [when preparing for a role]." He incorporated elements of the Thrive diet into his life to help him add 20 pounds of lean muscle for his "Wolverine" role!
He says, “Like most of us, I want the best out of life: I want my body and mind to run at full potential… I found myself having to put on twenty pounds of lean muscle for another film version of Wolverine… I actually started using Brendan Brazier’s Vega products.”
This isn't an entirely new step for Hugh... he was seen even in 2009 toting around a Vega Carry Bag. On Monday, The New York Post picked up on Hugh Jackman’s new way of eating, and featured it on Page Six!
Hugh Jackman’s new fitness secret is not so secret to all of you! We are so excited that more and more people, including celebrities like Hugh, are discovering the value of plant-based nutrition. Look for the newest edition of Thrive in the US in stores and on Amazon on September 14th - if you'd like to get your own copy!
