For those of you fearing a plant based diet would make you loose your athletic edge or too much weight, have a look here at some of the pros. Many people also fear that a plant-based diet will not provide sufficient protein, but here are some real life examples of top-rated professional athletes that prove a vegan diet not only provides ample amounts of protein but also higher quality and better overall nutrition.
For those body builders out there…
Some of the strongest men in the world are vegan. Olympic gold medalist Kendrick Ferris broke the American weightlifting record.. He can lift 831 pounds!
So to are the fastest. Carl Lewis won 10 Olympic medals, 9 of which were gold. He claims he ran his best meet of his life the year he turned vegan

I could go on but you get the point. A vegan diet has proven more than sufficient in every sport. In fact, it has proven to excel the athletes’ performance. AND reduce the threat of injury.
