NFL Player Deuce Lutui Adopts Vegan Diet

The Seahawks player is adhering to a plant-based diet in efforts to improve his health and combat weight issues.

Pro football player Deuce Lutui, the Seattle Seahawks’ new guard, has apparently given up meat and dairy in order to improve his health. Lutui, who also played as an offensive lineman for the Arizona Cardinals, has struggled with weight problems for years, compromising his personal wellbeing. According to ESPN, the Tongan-born athlete visited a nutritionist in pursuit of a healthy weight for his size, which—at six foot four—is larger than many of his teammates. His agent, Ken Harris, tells the sports network, “He wanted to commit to himself and to his family that he would do everything to take care of himself … and be the best player he could be.” While Lutui describes the contents of his fridge as "all-vegan" on the Seahawks' blog, a recent article on NFL.com states that he does still include some meat in his largely plant-based diet. Here's hoping he soon nixes meat for good!
