In Episode 85 I sat down with plant based athlete Catriona Bisset, Australian track athlete who currently holds the national record for the 800m event. If you haven't heard of Catriona chances are you will very soon - seemingly coming out of nowhere she is destined to represent Australia at the 2020 Tokyo olympics.

Specifically we cover:

• Catriona's days as a young track athlete and the pressures she felt
• Her struggles with anxiety, depression and disordered eating
• Adopting a plant based diet and her purpose for doing so
• The ins and outs of her diet and how she has worked through specific aspects to improve her well-being and performance
• Setting the Australian national record for the 800m event
• Being an olympic hopeful and voice for positive change
• and much more
