You guys take your shots on me. Live it up.

In the end, the man saw fit to add a little meat to his plate. And that "occasional" meat is probably timed to coincide with game days. If he keeps it up, slowly he'll be back to full beast mode.

I'd say that's confirmation that a full-blown vegan diet wasn't working as well as planned.

My *ahem* "Vegan" diet consists of a weekly steak, a little pork and chicken. BTW, whenever I want to treat myself, I mix in some lamb or veal.

Wish we could get a picture of him before/after the vegan diet, he looks a lot thinner and leaner this year. Not that it's normally a bad thing but he definitely looks like he could use a few more pounds IMHO.

I don't think this is a going forward re-evaluation/modification of his diet - and I don't think anything's gonna be much different in the next few weeks than the last few. I think it's more an acknowledgement that he hasn't actually been a vegan in the strict sense for a while now (if he ever was)...

Foster was asked how the vegan thing was going Thursday , and he sheepishly admitted he’s strayed from the strict diet.

"Ah, I’ve been, ah I’ve been dabbling back and forth, but I just like to eat healthy," Foster said. "I’ve had meat since I said I don’t eat meat anymore."

Is this still a topic of discussion? Jesus Touchdown Baby Christ. The Texans are 7-1, in large part due to Arian Foster hauling the rock up and down the field. I think it's safe to say now, if not before, that he can take care of himself. Meat, no meat, aliens, bananas, purple stuff, whatever. As long as he keeps the bows coming after drives, who gives half of a flying rats ass what he eats?

It's mentally very difficult for anyone to stick to dietary restrictions like that, unless cheating affects your quality of life too much. I went two years without ingesting a single molecule of gluten, and I can't overstate the positive effects it had on my health, but now I'm at the point where if someone puts a fresh baked sausage-cheese-jalapeno kolache in my face, I cannot resist.

As somebody already suggested, it doesn't look like his performance has any correlation with his eating habit.

I could go on. You guys got all hot and bothered by the groundbreaking news this offseason that Foster was going vegan. We had no shortage of threads about it, people going to great lengths to make sure we all knew that vegan is most awesome...you can be a great athlete on it...Tony Gonzalez...blah blah blah.

Now that it gets revealed he hasn't been religiously following the diet, in contrast to how it had been reported many months ago, and it's now "Well, this shows he HAS been eating portions of meat and therefore his 'different appearance thus far' is not from lack of meat." or "This doesn't even matter! Who gives a flip?!?!"

LOL. When people have to eat some crow, they usually squirm out of it. Find ways to minimize it or dismiss the topic altogether. Or make fun of the minority of posters who called him out on it long ago and never were fazed by the jeers. Take your pick. It's all so very funny to me.

Do we need to continue, or is it pretty clear how I feel about it?

Do we need to continue, or is it pretty clear how I feel about it?

I remember folks being alarmed and worried that lack of meat in his diet would affect his performance. I also recall the examples others pointed to that vegan or vegetarian diet was/is used by other successful athletes. So the "it doesn't matter" viewpoint is not a change for some of us. I said "us" because I was in the "he ought to know what he's doing camp so why worry about it" I suppose what grated on me was that every time something didn't go well for Foster the vegan thing was pointed to. So maybe I should rejoice since he's been "off the wagon" (if he was ever totally on it) for some time, then those "he needs to eat meat, dammit" assertions were so much B/S weren't they? Right...? Those are the folks who are eating crow because the "no meat = under performing" had no basis since his diet never really went totally meatless...
You're right. It is kinda funny. :D

I had mentioned this before.
The reason Foster's average was low is because we used him in short yardage situations or to run out the clock a lot. These are the times when the defense stacks the LOS, making it difficult to gain a lot of yards.

The last two games, there were only 6 instances that we use Foster in short yardage (3rd or 4th and 3 yard or less, or 3 yards from the opponent's goal-line.)
That's 3 per game.

A couple of weeks ago, I counted the previous games (I don't remember if I counted the first 5 or 6 games) and the total was 31.
Let's say it was through 6 games, he still averaged a hair more than 5 such carries per game (2 more than the last two games.)

There was no other back in the league that is even close to those counts.
