Finding Ultra is an incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical
On the night before he was to turn forty, Rich Roll experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds
overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he could see where his current sedentary life was taking
him—and he woke up.
Plunging into a new routine that prioritized a plant-based lifestyle and daily training, Rich morphed—in a matter of
mere months—from out of shape, mid-life couch potato to endurance machine. Finding Ultra recounts Rich’s remarkable
journey to the starting line of the elite Ultraman competition, which pits the world’s fittest humans in a 320-mile
ordeal of swimming, biking, and running. And following that test, Rich conquered an even greater one: the EPIC5—five
Ironman-distance triathlons, each on a different Hawaiian island, all completed in less than a week.
In the years since Finding Ultra was published, Rich has become one of the world’s most recognized advocates of
plant-based living. In this newly revised and updated edition, he shares the practices, tools, and techniques he uses
for optimal performance, longevity, and wellness, including diet and nutrition protocols. Rich reflects on the steps he
took to shift his mindset and leverage deep reservoirs of untapped potential to achieve success beyond his wildest
imagination, urging each of us to embark on our own journey of self-discovery.
