Just in from his twitter. Im not sure if this will hurt his performance.
I'm not a doctor, but I sincerely hope that he finds an alternative source for all of the essential nutrients that he could lose; losing Foster to something like malnutrition would be facepalm worthy.
There's a guy riding in the Tour de France who is vegan. I'm sure he'll be fine.
He's a professional and I'm positive he'll get it figured out. This is an extreme non-issue if you ask me.
So does this mean I shouldn't draft him for my fantasy team????
Definitely not with the 1st pick. According to the NFL players, he's only the 5th best running back in the league.
Tony Horton of P90X fame has been vegan for years. There are many sources of protein and nutrients that are not animal in origin.
They just aren't as good.
I have a vegen friend who is 6'3-4 225..mid thirties all muscle. Eats the 6 "small" meals with plenty of nuts and beans for protein. does take suppliments, but again all natural and nothing that should illegal under NFL policy.
also, with ~2000 NFL players there are other vegan/vegetarians in the league.
My guess is if he's going vegan he's probably ate less animal than you might think to begin with.
Yes and no.
Yes, not as good for the tongue. I love me some steak!
And no, because animal protein can be brutal on the digestive tract.
I'd imagine there are quite a few who are vegetarian (i.e. do not eat animal protein but are not full on vegan lifestyle).
I've had digestive system issues for years, and animal protein (especially beef) is not the easiest thing for our body to digest. Add to this the amount of red meat that Americans eat, and there is no wonder why so many folks suffer from heart disease, cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.
I think Foster will be fine. He's got the best nutritionists at his disposal and lots of money to live that kind of lifestyle. And with his life philosophy, this vegan switch does not surprise me at all.
That's just frigging great. Arian is tuning into a hippie. I hope he doesn't try to stuff the football in his bong and smoke it instead of running with it.
BS, vegan is better for you all the way around.
Im not, I like to burn cow, but he will be fine.
Have you tried to fit a football in your bong?
Turning into? Seriously? Haven you been following the guy the past couple years? He's been hippie from the start.
IF someone is vegan and does it the correct way, then there should be no problem with it. You certainly can get everything you need from non-animal sources.
I couldn't do it. Never in a million years. I love beef and chicken and pork way too much to give it up.
I'm not vegan, and I can't play football professionally. Therefore, this must be a good move
I realize that. It was a joke. Guess I should have included the proper smilie.
I wish Arian the best of luck. We need him.
Prince Fielder became a vegetarian (admittedly somewhat different than Vegan) before the 2008 season. Since then his career has flourished to the point he received a contract in excess of $200 Million this past off-season from the Detroit Tigers.
Of course his secret to being a successful vegetarian may have been not actually being a vegetarian, as he quit 3 months later (he just didn't tell anyone about it for four years).
No Thorn, he went to Tennessee. Not the hippie loving, orange wearing, pot head school in Austin. You must be thinking about Ricky Williams!
