Good video. I seem to be eating a lot of things pictured in your video, and so perhaps I should be OK. I also get a lot of sun here, so vitamin D levels being high. Calcium doesn't seem to have a "go-to" (natural) source as so many foods have it, but so few seem to have it in a very high quantity. Perhaps almonds is the closest thing to a "go-to" in terms of whole plant foods, as it has a higher concentration of calcium than most things according to some sources I've seen.

Very occassionally, I do a very large amount of exercise in one day, like run 20 miles, or walk 20 miles, or cycle 50 miles, and I found when I did this either the day after (or 2 days after) my legs would just seize up and for a day I would just be hobbling. However, now I'm eating vegan this just doesn't seem to happen so much this year.

I am also finding that I can run very slightly faster than before.

It's hard to say for sure whether this is all coincidence, or whether it's due to my diet or losing a bit of weight or other reasons.

But, although I am not a serious athlete, I do generally feel my athletic performance is either slightly better or certainly at any rate no worse.

Thanks for watching! Glad you liked it
That's great that you're already eating a bunch of high-calcium foods! Getting lots of Vit D is awesome too!

That's awesome that you're feeling better athletically as a vegan! I feel the benefits too
