PP#37: Jay Oliveira – Seeing the bigger picture as a Plant Based Athlete

Screen Shot 2015-06-14 at 8.07.11 PM

I remember the first time I saw Jay, aka Plant Based Athlete. It was on YouTube, his first video ever recorded in 2012 called “What a High Carb, Low Fat Raw Vegan (80/10/10) Eats In A Day” Today that video has over 100k views and his channel has over 20k subscribers. At age 41 Jay has been vegan for four years and competes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. After living in Hawaii for a decade selling wine, Jay decided he needed to realign his passion with his work. Luckily fate introduced him to Michelle Muench (bananablondie108) and the two decided to start a new life together.

Jay and Michelle founded ThrivingPlantBased.com which is a platform to be guided, educated and experience the benefits of a healthy plant-based lifestyle. For only $9.99 per month YOU can become a member and receive meal plans, group coaching, access to exclusive videos and customized yoga flows. 

In this conversation Jay and I discuss the optimal diet for strength and athletic performance, the deal with the paleo diet, how to get into practicing Yoga, bickering within the vegan community , and when it’s time to start following you dreams.
