NBA Trail Blazer Damian Lillard Goes Vegan

The professional basketball player has been sticking to an all plant-based diet in preparation for next season.

Professional basketball player Damian Lillard announced on social media last week that he has been following a plant-based diet during the NBA offseason. “Vegan alert,” Lillard said in a video on Instagram that displayed a spread of vegan foods including tofu, pasta, and salad. “I’ve changed; getting my life right.” The Portland Trail Blazers point guard suffered a leg injury during the 2016 NBA season and hopes a vegan diet will help him lose weight to take stress off of his joints. Earlier this summer, several professional athletes—including football players Theo Riddick of the Detroit Lions and Trent Williams of the Washington Redskins—ditched animal products in favor of plants to further their athletic careers.
