Brian Rose,
the host of popular online talk show London Real, is set to compete in his
first Ironman - and will do so on a fully plant-based diet.

Ironman
70.3 is an extreme triathlon, which includes a 1.2 mile swim, 56 miles of
cycling, and a 13.1 mile run - a total of 70.3 miles, or roughly 113
kilometres.

Rose is set
to race on May 20 in Chattanooga, Tennessee - a journey which he and London
Real have called 'Ironmind'.

Punk band mentor

He will be
guided through the process by John Joseph, lead singer of punk band the
Cro-Mags, plant-based advocate, Ironman athlete, and author of the pro-vegan book Meat Is for
Pussies
.

The pair
met during a London Real interview only a few months ago.

Fully
plant based

Joseph has
been eating plant-based for 37 years - a diet which he says 'heals your soul' and was part of his quest for a better life.

After
persuading Rose to commit to the race, Joseph - who Rose describes as 'one of
the scariest dudes' he’s seen - also informed him that they'd be 'doing this on
a 100 percent plant-based diet'.

Ironmind

London Real
is documenting the process and has already released a trailer and two short
Ironmind episodes
to YouTube.

There is
also a Facebook page set up where supporters can follow Rose's progress.
