From NBA champion Kyrie Irving to almost half of the current starters on the Tennessee Titans, more and more top level athletes are converting to a plant based diet. While some are going completely vegan, others vegetarian with a cheat day here and there, they are all noticing a huge difference in their level of performance.
This is what Irving of the Boston Celtics is saying “So my energy is up, my body feels amazing. Just understanding what the diet is like for me and what’s beneficial for me for having the highest energy out here and being able to sustain it at a very high level.”
