NFL Running Back Announces Switch to Vegan Diet

Houston Texans’ running back Arian Foster has decided to train on a plant-based diet.

Since announcing his new status as a vegan via Twitter on July 5, Houston Texans’ star running back Arian Foster has received kudos from fellow vegans—and some unanticipated controversy from fans. Foster referenced the popular documentary Forks Over Knives as an excellent resource, and changed his Twitter profile icon to an image of longtime vegan cartoonist Dan Piraro’s comic showing a skeptical meerkat asking a gorilla if he gets enough protein without eating meat. To those who’ve questioned his ability to train and excel on a plant-based diet, Foster tweets, “Lol, I had no idea so many of my followers were nutritionists.”
