Matt Frazier from Local Natives

100 Words Or Less: The Podcast

I love bringing episodes like this to you all because it came DIRECTLY FROM A LISTENER. Matt Frazier plays drums in the really great indie rock band Local Natives and he grew up in and around the punk/hardcore (specifically in the "Chain Reaction-core" days) scene so we dig deep into that while also discussing his life growing up in the Inland Empire, how close the band is as well as stalking Radiohead (not really, but it's a fun story).

Robert Cheeke and Matt Frazier on How to Get Healthy and Strong (While Being Plant Based)

The Adversity Advantage

Today’s conversation welcomes Robert Cheeke and Matt Frazier co-authors of the newly released NYT best selling book, “The Plant based athlete.”Robert is a former champion bodybuilder, a long time vegan and founder of veganbodybuilding.com. The guy has put on a whopping 100 lb all while abstaining from animal products. Matt is also a veteran plant-fueled machine but has made his mark in the world of endurance sports as a marathoner and ultra runner. Matt is also the man behind the highly popular blog nomeatathlete.com. Together they have written a book filled with science and plant based athlete transformation stories. I want to preface this episode by saying that I am personally not plant-based nor do I think it’s the best approach for everyone. My intention with this conversation to share a different perspective and get the answers to the questions many ask regarding the subject of plant-based nutrition. We discuss the why, what and how of plant based nutrition and the benefits that come from with it and of course we get into the million dollar questions surrounding protein, supplementation and amino acids.  Our conversation also goes into how to course correct when eating more plants becomes challenging.  They also share something from their book will shock some non-plant based eaters as well as their personal stories.

Ep. 91: The Plant-Based Athlete with Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke


Plant-based nutrition is definitely having a moment and it's so rewarding to be a key part of the conversation. It's also rewarding to introduce two longtime plantstrong pals who,like those of us at PLANTSTRONG, have been walking the walk and talking the talk for decades. Matt Frazier is founder and creator of “The No Meat Athlete” and he’s absolutely one of the global authorities on plant-based nutrition for endurance athletes. Robert Cheeke is the founder and creator of Vegan BodyBuilding and Fitness and has often been referred to as “The Godfather of the Vegan Bodybuilding Movement.” For over 25 years now, he's been out there flexing those biceps and advocating for a vegan lifestyle. At PLANTSTRONG, we're thrilled to see Matt (“Mr. Endurance”) and Robert (“Mr. Muscle”) cross-pollinate and get together to produce this groundbreaking new book, The Plant-Based Athlete: A Game Changing Approach to Peak Performance.It is poised to be the definitive guide for any athlete looking to optimize and enhance their athletic performance. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or someone who is just starting to dip your toe into fitness and may harbor some fear or doubt that plant-based nutrition will provide you with everything you need to succeed. Those fears will be put to rest with this book that is packed with recipes, insights, scientific research, and profiles of athletes who use plants to power their professional careers and daily lives. Key Takeaways: Macronutrient and Micronutrient Breakdowns - How much and, more importantly, what should I be eating before, during and after my training sessions? Can I really get enough protein on a plant-based diet? Why is plant protein superior to animal protein? How does a plantstrong diet help with inflammation and recovery? What are some examples of food combinations that will help sustain my performance? What foods do Robert and Matt eat? How do I even know how many calories I need on a daily basis? Who are some of the top-level athletes fueled by plants and what do they eat on a daily basis? Even though our platform at PLANTSTRONG has primarily been about preventing and reversing chronic lifestyle disease like heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, it’s so exciting to shed light on the fact that the same diet is also a performance enhancer to help athletes of all levels compete at their best. The game is changing and it is PLANTSTRONG.
