Athletes around the world—including world
champions Carl Lewis, Aly Raisman and Michael
Phelps—love adding delicious, Silk® Soymilk as
part of their diet.

MEET MICHAEL PHELPS

MEET MICHAEL PHELPS

Michael Phelps is kind of a big deal. In fact, he’s known as one of the greatest athletes
of all time. Since retiring from competitive swimming, Michael has focused on finding
balance in his life, his sweat-it-out routine, and big wins at mealtime—which include
Silk Soymilk.

As one of the first faces of Silk Soymilk, Michael will show how incorporating Silk
Soymilk into your diet is good for you, and easy to do.

Find what works for you and your family

My boys love fruit, which we top with soymilk yogurt alternative to make sure they are full and love what they are eating.

Food is fuel

Your body should be treated like a performance race car, and you need to fill it with the best fuel you can!

Dream, Plan, Reach

Goal-setting is really important in life. Don’t be afraid to dream big. Be sure to make a plan to achieve that dream and go for it!

Mental Wellness

Make sure to focus on your mental well-being, not just your physical and nutritional well-being.

MEET ALY RAISMAN

MEET ALY RAISMAN

Aly Raisman captured the hearts of millions while performing (and winning!) on the
world’s most competitive stage and has continued her champion streak off the mat
by inspiring people around the globe as an advocate for change.

A strong believer in the importance of self-care, Aly’s approach to healthy living
includes enjoying a more plant-based diet, exercising for physical and mental wellness,
and encouraging an overall mindful approach to self-care for herself and others. Now,
as a champion of Silk Soymilk, Aly is excited to share all the amazing ways plants can
help your body and your mind.

Focus on a balanced diet, not a restricted diet

Eat things that taste good and nourish you. When I am craving something sweet, I whip up a fruit smoothie using Silk Original Soymilk.

Working out should not be a chore

Find a way to move that brings you joy, like working out in nature.

Take it easy on yourself

Sometimes a rest day is exactly what you need. Listen to your body and your mind.

Stretch

This is something I learned early on in my career as a gymnast. If you stretch before and after every workout, your body will thank you for it!

MEET CARL LEWIS

MEET CARL LEWIS

Track and Field Hall of Famer and world-class athlete Carl Lewis has been fully powered
by a plant-based diet, including Silk® Soymilk since before he took home his ninth gold
medal (yes, nine!) for an epic Long Jump in 1996.

Retirement hasn’t slowed Carl down. Just check out his Instagram
(@carl_lewis_official) for proof! His strength, confidence and charisma drive his
personal passion for education, wellness and fitness. He’s been a proud plant-based
pioneer for 25 years and counting, and his journey will surely inspire athletes
everywhere to choose Silk Soymilk—to help support their goals and the planet.

PLANT-BASED BENEFITS

My mostly plant-based diet has positively impacted my performance on the track over the years, and it is also good for the planet.

COMPLETE PROTEIN IS KEY

Always reach for high-quality, complete protein sources like Silk Soymilk, especially if you live an active lifestyle.

PLANT-BASED COMMUNITY PRIDE

Plant-based diets can help minimize the risk of developing chronic illnesses that impact the Black community at a higher rate, like diabetes and high blood pressure.

EXTRAORDINARY AT ANY AGE

You can achieve incredible things at any stage in your life, as long as you’re up for the challenge.

Why champions choose soymilk

Silk is the #1 brand of soymilk recommended by nutritionists*

* Based on a nationwide survey of 250 Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, Jan 2020

HERE’S HOW SILK ORIGINAL SOYMILK STACKS UP TO dairy milk*

  • 8 grams complete plant protein
  • MORE calcium
  • MORE VITAMIN B12
  • FREE OF CHOLESTEROL
Let’s see the full comparison
* 50% more calcium and 132% more vitamin B12 than reduced fat dairy milk. In a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, 25 grams of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Silk Original Soymilk has 8 grams of soy protein.
