Vegetarian Professional Athletes

A few professional athletes are ahead of the curve regarding their nutrition. The following ESPN.com article highlights 4 professional athletes who have adopted vegetarian and/or vegan lifestyles. Here's hoping that they'll have a positive influence on their colleagues and fans.

Great info and an interesting article. One of my good friends is a martial arts instructor and since going vegan he says he's been able to train much harder and longer.

I really hope those athletes in the article have a good influence on their comrades!

Thanks for the link to this great article. It's always great to show people that vegans can be healthy and strong! People always seem to be so impressed to know that Carl Lewis and Bill Pearl (the ironman) were/are vegan :o)
