Having self-published Thrive (2004), Vancouver-based Ironman triathlete and vegan Brendan Brazier repackaged his advice for a plant-based whole foods diet in The Thrive Diet (Penguin 2007 $24). It was followed by Thrive Fitness (Penguin 2009 $24) to "extend the diet to a total lifestyle approach." It includes more than 60 exercise demonstration photos.

Brazier is a motivational nutritionist and creator of Vega whole food products to reduce body fat, reduce signs of aging and "lower biological age", increase mental clarity and energy, improve sleep quality, enhance mood, eliminate junk food cravings and build a stronger immune system. 0-14-305236-5
