Many successful athletes are discovering the benefits of dropping animal products — from decreasing their recovery times to increasing their energy. Veg athletes are reaching the top of their game, and football players are no exception. Just ask Tony Gonzalez, Joe Namath, Ricky Williams, Deuce Lutui, Tony Fiammetta, or Arian Foster — all players who have significantly reduced or eliminated animal foods from their diets.
There has been a lot of news this summer touting the benefits of eating vegan for an athletic edge. Whether it’s ultra runners like Scott Jurek who have been winning races as a dedicated vegan for years or professional NFL players eager to improve their health and their performance, these athletes help build a simple yet powerful narrative: removing animal products from your diet not only improves health but can also give you an athletic boost.
