For the majority of my life, I struggled with on-going colds, infections, and respiratory issues. As a child and continuing as an adult, medical professionals would prescribe pills, perform tests, and this repeated itself over-and-over again. It wasn’t until a few years ago, when I began a journey of optimizing my diet and increasing physical activity, that things changed dramatically.
I use to consume two, 16oz cans of Rockstar Organic Energy Drink, every day. I’m active. I train for running and triathlon races. My diet is plant-based. I look for healthy, organic food and beverage choices. I had no idea what was in store for me, until I changed my behavior.
The debate is as old as physical competition. Are stars like Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, and Serena Williams genetic freaks put on Earth to dominate their respective sports? Or are they simply normal people who overcame their biological limits through sheer force of will and obsessive training?
