Well, for four days anyway, haha. It’s always exciting news when a pro athlete goes vegan. It not only promotes a great alternative diet that is healthy, but also defies the stereotype of the “malnourished vegan” by contrasting it with this image of a 6’10″ 250 lbs NBA player. Here’s what the Phoenix Suns star had to say about it -
“With my four days off, I’m really taking time off to purify my body, and get my body in top shape for these last 16-17 games. So right now, I’m on a vegan fast.”
Even though he says it’s just a temporary thing, let’s hope that it works out so well for him he decides to go vegan, or vegetarian, for good! It seems like famous people all over are going vegan/veg and look and feel great. See Ruben Studdard and the trainer from the Biggest Loser.
