Lance Armstrong on the Engine 2 Diet

April 12, 2012

Lance Armstrong is on a new organic and plant-based diet plan called Engine 2 Diet. 

"I started swimming again, and I swim with a guy who started basically a food program called the Engine 2 Diet, which is plant-based, 100% natural, organic diet," Armstrong said. "It's basically whole grains, different types of beans, kale salad with creative alternatives for dressing. They'll bring out something that looks like a brownie, but it's not a brownie... though it tastes a bit like brownie. So I did it for one day, then two days. Then I branched out and started doing it at breakfast and lunch."

The athlete says he has been on the diet for about a month now, but makes sure to venture outside of the plan for dinner. In the short time that he has been on the diet, Armstrong says he has seen a boost in his energy levels. As an added bonus, the diet is easy enough to follow while he's traveling.
