Dirk is a very tenacious, diligent and consummate Triathlete, who prefers to compete in full Triathlons (3,8km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42,2 km running). However, there’s yet another passion in his life… Dirk is a consummate nutritionist in organic- and macrobiotic nutrition. His book PURE POWER is a manifestation of his passion and dedication for the sport and his fervency in providing his mind and body the absolute best in nutrition.
Dirk soon realized that, in order for him to compete at the top-level in Triathlon, he had to search for an alternative source of nutrition; one that would safeguard him from ailments and injuries and at the same time provide him with a faster recovery. He discovered that natural nutrient-rich foods made him stronger, and when prepared in the right manner are simply the best way to gain energy and vitality. It is the main reason why Dirk is such a great proponent of macrobiotics and its advantages for everybody! Dirk has always placed a lot of thought into what type of nutrition to take with him during training or competition, but more so the type of nutrition that would be practical to travel with. During his training camp he experimented a lot with all sorts of nutrient-rich foods. The result was compact nutrition food that would fuel his body and mind and above all keep his energy- and mineral levels replenished at all times!
