Unfortunately, the truth never seems to explode and we have once again, witnessed a dud.

Im thinking foster is more worried about being there for his family in long haul, I do feel over the years we will see a decline in his performance but luckily we have two running backs that could be starters any where else.

I think it is a definite problem. I dunno if 370 is the magic number, but I very much worry that we are using Foster up. At this point I think he and Tate should be getting equal reps.

I do think Foster tends to avoid contact, but I don't think that's enough to slow the pace of wearing down.

Muscles break down when you work out and protein is what actually rebuilds muscle.

Which IMO explains his lack of breaking tackles and going down so easily. This is just my opinion but i see a difference and if u add it all up it looks like perfect math to me.
I was never a fan of Arian Foster going Vegan in the first place. It has obviously affected his running this season. He's not looking like a top three back. Take away the TD totals and he's not even having that great of a season that I expected. 3.9 yards per carry is very bad and only 12 receptions this late in the year?

That game against the Packers when he had 17 carries for 29 yards on primetime TV still lingers inside of my mind because it was quite embarrassing. I have a few friends who are Green Bay fans who still laugh at me and call me crazy when I mention Arian Foster is the best running back in the league. I had predicted him to win the 2012 NFL MVP award and he's not even going to be close in the voting.

Somebody needs to tell Arian Foster to eat his big juicy steaks and eggs. Grab yourself a big bowl of delicious Fruitty Pebbles this morning with a lot of milk. That stuff is healthy. Going Vegan is not healthy, especially for a pro athlete playing running back in the NFL because of how short their careers are on average. His body is likely begging for some good meat and milk right about now. If he had that in his system I bet he would have a 150-yard rushing, 100-yard receiving and 3 TD game against Buffalo.

You are obviously ignorant of the health benefits of a properly planned vegan diet. The dangers in vegan diets comes when people do not do their homework and plan their diets correctly. I very much doubt Foster is doing this blindly. You can get all the protein and carbs you desire from a proper vegan diet.

I must add, my own personal preferance, would never to be a vegan as I couldn't give up meat. But, to each his own. And diet is a personal thing anyway.

But saying going vegan is not healthy just means you have no idea of what you are talking about.

Going vegan is a very heathly lifestyle no doubt. Now for someone who has an 8-5 job and runs for exercise it is def the healthiest life style you can have. I am not saying that foster isnt thinking about his family in the long run, which is great and more power to him. BUT with all that said Fosters life style and how he has played the game with agility and POWER a vegan lifestyle is not ideal.

Sure he can get most of the nutrients he needs in other forms, BUT there is a difference in getting the bare minimum and then getting what it actually takes to keep you strong and getting stronger. I am at work until 11, so i make it home in time for the game. But i want you to just look at the guys arms from 2 seasons ago to now, you can see a difference.

Now this is all opinion of course but like i have said whenever i want to get cut and lean i stop eating meat and i take suppliments to give me the bare minimum of nutrients i need, and then when it comes time to bulk up again what do you think puts on the pounds and muscle ??? It sure isnt the suppliments i was buying. Just saying.

Well, to continue this vegan debate, I've just visited about a half dozen sites trying to skim through what they were saying about vegan diets and athletics. All conclude that a properly balanced vegan diet works, there is no conclusive evidence that a proper vegan diet either enhances performance or decreases it. There is some mention that most heavy body builders do better with a meat diet, but there is no scientific evidence to validate that conclusion, nor is there a valid reason why an omnivore would put on more muscle mass than a vegan.

Now, all this assumes you have that "properly planned" vegan diet. It takes research and effort to do it right. If Foster is NOT doing it right, then it could possibly harm his performance.

Muscle strength, muscle stamina, etc., is the major focus I have for Foster.

As in my example of propane vs. gasoline, it's obvious that cleaner fuels have cleaner performance and less "gunk" than power-based fuels. I just cannot being to believe that your muscles react the same way to plant-based proteins as they would with meat-based.

Not arguing the science of plant-based vs. meat-based, just the actual "payoff" considering the needs of an NFL RB.
