Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Sometimes the words just cannot describe how great you will feel when you start adopting plant-based nutrition. The energy levels and the total well-being is so amazing, that no person can grasp it unless she or he tries it. 

I so highly recommend for anybody to give it a try. Do a little experiment, maybe just for one month. Anybody can "survive" one month... you will be so amazed and positively surprised that you may never go back to your current "normal" style of eating. 

You will feel better, look much younger, your energy will be limitless, and if you are an athlete, your performance and recovery will improve dramatically. You have absolutely nothing to lose by trying it out. You can only gain. 

Go for it and you will never regret.

More About the Author

Can you imagine giving up your home, country, career and relationship to venture into the unknown, in pursuit of your personal vision?

Suzanna McGee did just that when she moved to Venice Beach, California in June of 1996. The six foot European beauty was born in the communist Czechoslovakia and moved to Sweden in 1988 after earning her Masters in Technology.

Once in Sweden, the multi-lingual (she speaks six languages) Suzanna completed another Masters, in Computer Science and began lecturing at the university level. In between lectures, she became a fitness trainer and soon realized that fitness and training would eventually become a full time career.

A brief visit to Venice in the summer of 1995 proved to be more than a simple vacation. It made Suzanna realize that she wanted to live near the sun and sea to pursue a disciplined journey towards a healthy body and a balanced mind. After selling her home and belongings, quitting her job and ending her relationships, Suzanna moved to Venice Beach the following summer. She arrived in California with one bag and a mountain bike, not knowing a soul and not speaking the language.

Once in Los Angeles, Suzanna quickly learned English and started personal training in Marina Del Rey. She joined the infamous Gold's Gym in Venice and focused on training, nutrition, and rollerskate dancing. In 1997, she began to compete in a few fitness contests in which she performed her routine on rollerskates.

Suzanna's height and muscular frame led people to suggest that she try amateur bodybuilding. She rose to the challenge and entered a contest, which she found very exciting. In 1998, she competed in 19 contests and gained a large amount of stage experience. By the year 2002, she had accumulated 60 bodybuilding and rollerskate dancing trophies, peaking with the Ms. Natural Olympia world championship title in 1999.

Suzanna's love of performance also led to a national television commercial for Lipton Iced Tea and video work, and a part in the Sci-Fi movie The Surplus Male. In 2002, Suzanna hosted a weekly television fitness and training program that aired globally via satellite network Pars TV.

The year 2002 was Suzanna's last year in bodybuilding as she then found a new passion - tennis. She has been competing and working with several tennis coaches since 2003, winning many tournaments and receiving an international ranking. In 2007, she started to learn to play tennis ambidextrously, just to challenge her body and brain on another level.

Her ambidextrous game has been featured in the book Whole Brain Power: The Fountain of Youth for the Mind and Body by M. Lavery. In addition to tennis, Suzanna weight-trains several times per week, and she has added kettlebells and yoga to her off court training. Suzanna's remarkable fitness has allowed her to reach high levels in tennis quickly.

Discovering the "magic potion" for ageless competitive tennis through mindful fitness, this 49-year-old true athlete plays tennis daily, and without aches and pains.

These days, Suzanna uses her computer background to maintain her own websites www.tennisfitnesslove.com (and the former bodybuilding site www.sixftlion.com), with interesting health and fitness articles, including advice on injury prevention and improving athletic performance through plant-based nutrition. She is a regular contributor to many online blogs and magazins, such as Examiner, LIVESTRONG, NaturalNews.com and Active.

With her teaching and writings, Suzanna possesses the tremendous ability to inspire athletes to be the best that they can be. Suzanna's special training style that combines many different techniques of training, healing, and injury prevention, brings much success and great results to those who learn how to master her teaching methods.

Suzanna is certified by National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) as a Performance Enhancement Specialist and Corrective Exercise Specialist. She also owns Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from eCornell University. Suzanna's passion for helping people resulted in publishing of her books:

1) Tennis Fitness for the Love if it: A Mindful Approach to Fitness for Injury-free Tennis in September 2010,

2) Racquetball and Squash: Conditioning and Injury Prevention in May 2011, and

3) The Athlete's Simple Guide to a Plant-Based Lifestyle: How to easily improve your health, performance, and longevity. Works for non-athletes, too! in May 2014.

All are available on Amazon worldwide. Now people from the entire world can learn conscious fitness and develop the skills how to become injury-free for the rest of their lives.

Suzanna McGee strongly believes in the power of the subconscious mind and its ability to be a powerful tool to help people realize their life goals. She respects body and mind equally, and strives to live her life in balance and joy and to share this with others.

She believes in "think happy, be happy." Her spiritual and disciplined approach towards life are a joy and inspiration to those who know her and she is living proof that brains and brawn need not be mutually exclusive. Suzanna is a thriving raw vegan athlete and resides with her chocolate Labrador in Venice Beach, California.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is presented in a way that any reader will be fascinated with because of its simplicity and health guarantees as the best food plan available today. The author has researched all of the top nutritional experts her entire life as a world class body builder and now tennis player/ and trainer. She offers readers a simple plan that is endorsed by a plethora of high profile athletes and celebrities such as Bill Clinton, Venus Williams and Jennifer Lopez among others seeking optimum health. The added bonus of lower food costs relative to the average American meat eating diet might help sway readers, but the added material she writes about is so compelling - the reader can not help but to re-evaluate eating habits endorsed by the meat and dairy industry. The author understands any transition is hard and after significant explanation documented by leading nutritional experts she refers to from her own research, she offers readers suggestions as to how to make the transition the most palatable. Not to mention the benefits of good blood values and a lean weight eating as much as you want. It is a real lead by hand type of educational book that can seriously change people's lives for the better if they are willing to read the book and then have a choice in front of them that is life changing for the better. It's not a cheap diet book, but a humanitarian effort of the author to share what wealthy, and celebrity personalities already know in pursuit of ultimate health. The simplicity of it as she presents it is key for the masses to enjoy and reap the benefits. Could
