Our guest today knew her calling at a much younger age than most of us. A fitness enthusiast, environmentalist and outspoken animal rights activist before she was even 15, Ella Magers is today a fitness coach, an author, and the founder of Sexy Fit Vegan. She’s been on a personal quest to help people change their attitudes toward food and wellness, and she has the international following to prove it. Ella was named one of the top 50 trainers in America by Shape magazine and Trainer Of The Month by bodybuilding.com. Armed with a master's degree in social work, certifications with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, extensive training in Muay Thai, and an inherent ebullience, Ella epitomizes what’s possible on a plant-forward diet.
And there is SO much more to Ella’s story. This episode is packed with heretofore untold revelations and personal tales from her remarkable life journey!
“That grief felt so different. It was maybe the worst grief of my life, and at the same time, I let myself have it. I let myself be in it. I didn’t eat my way out of it. I didn’t turn to food. I didn’t turn to exercise. I didn’t turn to any of those old unhealthy coping mechanisms. And I say unhealthy because I would have over-exercised. Anything to run: drinking or drugs or anything like that. I just sat in it. And I cried, and I cried, and I cried.” - Ella Magers
What we discuss in this episode:
The Plant-based Playbook IS HERE!
Let the Plant-based Games Begin, the first-ever guidebook dedicated to optimizing athletic performance with plant-based fuel. We developed the Playbook in consultation with the IOC’s Office of Sustainability to help coaches, dietitians, and athletes understand how to embrace plant-based nutrition.
Researched and written by a diverse group of highly credentialed researchers, clinicians, and athletes, the Playbook leverages peer-reviewed science and real-world experience to illuminate the physiological benefits of a plant-based diet. The Playbook also includes robust, field-tested tools and resources for meal planning and other practical implementation techniques.
