With his veganism inspired by Rich Roll, David has overcome tremendous physical and health challenges to become a gold medallist "I feel better now at 36 and after three major neck surgeries than I have ever felt in my life and I owe that to a vegan diet. It is also great to know that you're not only giving your body the best nourishment but your also not hurting any animals and helping the planet."
As an athlete switching to a vegan diet I noticed a lot of benefits in recovery, focus and general well being. When I got my water right however I noticed the same benefits with even more consistency. This talk is aimed to show you that not all water is equal and how the subtle differences between the bottled, tap and pure water we drink makes huge implications on our health, fitness and well being. Essentially exploring one theory into why Veganism sometimes works so well and why sometimes it fails. I aim to inform you of my personal experience and research into H20 and how a simple shift of awareness in something so many of us already do can have great benefits in our quality of life.
Mick Walker shows how even in later years veganism can lead us to new horizons and solutions for degenerative health conditions. Proving his point, Mick will cycle from The Vegan Society in Birmingham to the VegfestUK Athletes Summit at Olympia London in time for his talk at 5pm.
