If anything, it might help. He had to work to shed some body fat a couple of years ago.

I actually like a lot of hippie food, and I'm very much not a hippie.

I would be curious to know who else is vegan in the league. See if they are any good.

Good for him, it is a harder diet to keep your body nourished but if done properly it has been proven over and over it is healthier for your body.

I am too addicted to meat/animal products to go Vegan but go Arian and make sure you do it right!

My old drummer's vegan. He used to be a powerlifter/bodybuilder. When he switched to Veganism, he lost some size and strength. He's still a big, strong guy but not as big or strong as he was or could have been if he'd stuck with meat.

It's a tough approach. You've got to really work to get everything you need. No milk, no honey, no processed flours or sugars -- you've got to get as many different sources of protein as you can during the day (although you don't have to go as far as the old Protein Combining theories used to say you do.)

Supplementing with creatine helps a lot for Vegans.

But... a hardcore Vegan shouldn't really be playing football because the football itself is made with leather, right? That's a no-no.

Default Re: Arian Foster going vegan.

Tony Gonzalez if mostly vegan (Yeah - I know, but that's kind of explained in the quote below). Even wrote a book about it.

Asked about what it was like to start, here's what he had to say:
Quote:
Going 100% vegan is hard…. What was the hardest/easiest thing for you once you went for it?

I’m one of those people, if I decide to do something, I do it, so it was pretty easy for me to get started. I felt so great, I had so much energy, I felt like my body went through almost a detox stage.

It was difficult from the standpoint of losing weight and losing strength. Football is my livelihood and maintaining weight is important, so that was pretty scary. Once I started to really educate myself about eating a more plant-based diet, but incorporating some clean meat into it – some wild fish, free-range chicken, grass-fed beef (I rarely eat beef, if at all) – I was able to get back that strength.

It would be interesting to know if Arian is doing it for health reasons, ethical reasons, or a combination of both.

Well, I think that's wonderful. I've tried some vegan recipes, and while I've always gone back to meat, there's some good ones out there.

There are some chefs that aren't well known, and may be somewhat unconventional, but I tried this guy's vegan Pad Thai recipe and it came out well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeZli...re=context-cha

I haven't tried the following recipes, but I plan to in the future. I'm all about variety. You may laugh at his delivery, but the instructions are sound.

Arian! Enjoy!
