recent foray into plant-based eating - and his upcoming Ironman competition.

Ironmind

The host of
the web-based talk show was inspired to do the extreme 70.3-mile triathalon by
punk rock legend John Joseph, a committed vegan, Ironman athlete, and author of
Meat Is For Pussies.

The events
leading up to Rose's race are being documented, and shared on YouTube, in a
series London Real is calling Ironmind.

'Only
plants'

Rose does
not call himself a vegan but is committed to the his change in diet, which his family has joined him in, until the upcoming race.

In this PBN
exclusive, he told Wintrip: "Yeah, I'm eating only plants.

"That's really
what I am right now."

'The
other issues'

Previous
guests on London Real include animal advocate and parkour athlete Tim Shieff,
and world-renowned vegan activist James Aspey - both of whom spread messages that
keep Rose curious.

He told
Wintrip: "I don't know how I feel about the animals and all of that.

"But I
think when you eat a lot of plants you do start to think about what’s happening
to the animals in a dairy situation, or even eating them - so, I wouldn’t say I'm
not thinking about some of the other issues that go along with veganism."
