Athletes Turn to Veganism to Enhance Performance

In a recent news segment, ABC shows that the playing field may be more than level for athletes who get their nutrients from a plant-based diet.

The Los Angeles news outlet ABC 7 shined a light on the rising trend of athletes going vegan, helping to dispel the myth that one needs to eat meat to perform well on the field or in the ring. ABC’s Lori Corbin interviewed mixed martial arts fighter Mac Danzig along with Montell Owens of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, who switched to a plant-based diet after he watched members of his family suffer from preventable health conditions. “Culturally there needs to be a change,” says Owens. “And why not start with myself?” The segment ended with some tips on how to make the switch to veganism—Corbin recommended starting with one plant-based meal a day and substituting common dairy products with healthier alternatives such as coconut milk and hummus.
