“How To Eat Like An Athlete!”

Robyn Kenul, R.D. Interviews Author & ACE-Certified Personal Trainer, Gabrielle Bolin

(Show description & bios* below.)

Show Description:

Join The Healthy Planet’s New Hosts on their first show together! Robyn Kenul, R.D., will interview Gabrielle Bolin (See bios below.*) on a topic that is near and dear to their hearts: “How To Eat Like An Athlete.” Both Robyn and Gabrielle are serious athletes who are passionate about both teaching and living the message that pairing regular exercise with a whole foods, plant-based diet will bring enormous benefits to both health and well-being.

Hear about Gabrielle’s relatable journey from being a person who used to see exercise as a “punishment,” to someone who now loves to take on everything from marathons to ultra-marathons to triathlons!

Robyn and Gabrielle will discuss a wide array of exercise/diet questions and issues, including:

– Is it possible to out-exercise a bad diet?
– Could those achy joints that hinder exercise be related to your diet?
– How TV commercials can help you get into great shape!
– How to supercharge a vegan diet for health and optimal performance.
– Is it possible to take on an exercise routine later in life?
– Do women who train with weights need to be concerned about getting too bulky?
– Do plant-based athletes get enough protein?

Listen to this empowering and inspiring discussion that will help you to get excited about moving your bodies… regardless of how long it’s been since you broke a sweat!

Hear The Healthy Planet Radio Show monthly at 6PM, with Robyn and Gabrielle on the first Friday, and Bob DiBenedetto on the second Friday of each month, on WUSB, 90.1FM, or Live Stream at:

As a plant-based dietician, Robyn Kenul uses education and encouragement to fight disease, and states that while prevention is always key, reversal is often possible and emphasizes that living with a disease doesn’t have to mean dying from it too.
