Finding Ultra blends Rich Roll's story of superhuman personal transformation with an amazingly practical guide to plant-based living. It's also an enlightened manifesto for anyone wanting to transform their life.--Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Zones booksAn incredible story of mental, emotional, and physical endurance.--Michael Greger, MD, FACLM, New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die On the night before he was to turn forty, Rich Roll experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he could see where his current sedentary life was taking him--and he woke up. Plunging into a new routine that prioritized a plant-based lifestyle and daily training, Rich morphed--in a matter of mere months--from out of shape, mid-life couch potato to endurance machine. Finding Ultra recounts Rich's remarkable journey to the starting line of the elite Ultraman competition, which pits the world's fittest humans in a 320-mile ordeal of swimming, biking, and running. And following that test, Rich conquered an even greater one: the EPIC5--five Ironman-distance triathlons, each on a different Hawaiian island, all completed in less than a week. One of Men's Fitness Magazine's 25 Fittest Men in the World, Rich has become one of the most recognized advocates of plant-based living. In this newly revised and updated edition, he shares the practices, tools, and techniques he uses for optimal performance, longevity, and wellness, including diet and nutrition protocols. Rich reflects on the steps he took to shift his mindset and leverage deep reservoirs of untapped potential to achieve success beyond his wildest imagination, urging each of us to embark on our own journey of self-discovery.
