How a Raw vegan athlete fuels their body on a low-fat raw vegan diet

Suzanna McGee, pro-tennis player, ex-body builder and fitness trainer, knew that a plant-based diet was going to fuel her body most efficiently for her high-powered athletic pursuits.

But she discovered a whole new world of energy when she started eating an entirely raw fruit-based diet.

In this interview, Suzanna shares her daily training routine, and also the delicious foods she eats to fuel her high-energy endeavours.

She eats well in excess of 3000 calories per day and is a lean bean.

  1. I download nothing. I would have liked to have seen the video…as I believe that the raw food lifestyle is the way to go. Why is it not possible to see the Suzannah McGees’ video? How do I see it without down loading? I have been into nutrition research…and would have told others to check it out, if it were available without downloading.. I know a young gal who is striving to become professional tennis player who should see it. I tell everyone about Doug Graham’s The 80-10-10 Diet…he was the former coach of the New York Knick’s and got his players to eat raw foods…80% carbs…10% protein and 10% fat. It is one of the best books I have read….and I have been reading nutrition books for 55 years.

  2. I am a vegetarian and watching this video has me excited about adding more of a variety to my diet, and I have been almost afraid of going completely raw but it sounds so much simpler than cooking meals..I am excited to start on a NEW journey…Thanks so much for sharing!!

  3. There’s nothing to be afraid of, Pat. Raw fruits and veggies couldn’t be easier 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the video.

  4. I’m not sure why you can’t see the video, Barbara. Perhaps try a different browser. It seems to be working for most people.

  5. Hi, Suzanna indicated she eats roughly 3500 kcal per day, but described three daily meals of approximately 500 kcal each?  I understand she occasionally consumes snacks, but where is the other 2000 kcal coming from?
    Respectfully, I’m not doubting the lifestyle; I’ve been doing it for 14 years … just curious. 

  6. Good question, Malcolm. I don’t know the answer. I’m assuming that she mean’t a different amount per meal.
