"Some of the races I've done and I'm most proud of aren't ones that I've won, it's the one's where I got the most out of myself."Today we're speaking to Professional Athlete, Podcast Host , Keynote Speaker and Writer Sonya Looney. Sonya is a huge advocate of a whole food plant based diet and a mental health warrior. She's raced her mountain bike across the world in over 25 countries at the hardest endurance races in places like the Sahara Desert, Himalayas of Nepal, tropical jungles in Asia, steppes of Mongolia, and mountain ranges in Poland and even became a World Champion in 2015. She is a living destroyer of the saying: "you can't be a top athlete on a plant based diet".Video version: https://youtu.be/EU4Q54b_--8The key topics in today's episode:04:00 - Advice for beginner mountain bikers06:45- Keeping it fun08:30 - Building an aerobic base13:30 - Having a plant based kids15:30 - Getting stressed out about climate change23:00 - Having compassion for other people27:00 - Achieving a great mindset28:00 - Imposter syndrome31:00 - Mindset vs Physical training35:30 - Coffee talks40:00 - Tracking calories43:00 - Mistakes Sonya has made46:00 - Mountain biking advice49:00 - What does it take to be a pro athlete50:00 - Training methods52:45 - What does healthy meanConnect with Sonya:Instagram | https://www.instagram.com/sonyalooney/ The Sonya Looney Show | https://open.spotify.com/show/4hgQ6XpfaSkFoW520rNnH7Website | https://www.sonyalooney.com/Twitter | https://twitter.com/sonyalooneyConnect with me:Instagram | @plant.paradigmYouTube | The Plant ParadigmTwitter | @plantparadigmWebsite | www.theplantparadigm.comSupport the show | Buy me a coffeeSubscribe to the podcast:Apple | Spotify | Stitcher |Stay happy,Eat plants,Peace
