Funzing Talks: A Biologists Guide to Fitness & Veganism

The idea of not eating meat is nothing new – Pythagoras was an early advocate of a plant-based diet – but so many of us were brought up to believe that the maintenance of health and fitness can only be achieved on a diet based around animal protein. We now have incontrovertible evidence that this is entirely incorrect – indeed it is becoming clear that the healthiest of diets is a Whole Food Plant Based Diet. This means a diet based 100% on plants – and they should be consumed in a form that is as close as possible to how they were grown and harvested. It should include little, if any processed or refined products – for example, no added sugar or oil. In this talk, I will outline some of the evidence for this and look at some top athletes who live on a plant based diet.

Mick is an Oxford Biologist, who is now coming towards the end of a career in teaching. He has been vegan for several years. Prior to becoming 100% vegan, he had not eaten meat for nearly 40 years. His decision to remove all animal products from his life was as a result of reading ‘Eat and Run’ by Scott Jurek, a vegan and ultra marathon runner. Since then, Mick has found that he has been able to maintain a high level of fitness much of which he puts down to his Whole Food Plant based Diet.

DTD’s Biggest & Final Birthday Blowout!
£10 / 12

Its been a marathon of emotions… highs, lows, good times, bad times, anxiety, blood, sweat and grit, more late nights than most could handle and all the rest that can come with running an event consistently for 6 years. But as hard as it is for us to finally close the doors on something we have worked so hard on for so long..the time is right to move on…nothing lasts forever x

Winner announced Xmas day.

DTD has achieved more than we could have hoped for in 6 years with the brand and the last thing we want is to fizzle out in years to come..we want to move on to other things we are passionate about and more importantly …we want to go out with BANG!
So we ask you, our friends, our fellow ravers, party goers, Sheffield and wider family to come together with us..for one last time to see DuskTilDawn out in the biggest and best way possible.

With it being our last event, we had to go as BIG as possible.
We have 3 rooms of absolute carnage to unfold…
from Live Bands! D&B and Jungle Icons, Old-Skool Rave Pioneers, 3 heavy weight guest sound systems, our Toil soundsystem family from the amazing Beat Herder, all genres, Local hero’s, good friends and even hot food and of course at the best venue for such an occasion in the whole of South Yorkshire..Yellow Arch Studios!
