Famous vegans who are debunking the myths

in vegan •  2 months ago

Veganism is not a mainstreem lifestyle but there are so many celebraties who adopted this lifestyle and debubked the mythes about vegan diet and lifestyle.
Here I geathered some informations about such successful peoples.

Venus Williams - American tennis player

After being diagnosed with incurable an auto-immune disease, she adopted the raw-vegan diet and she has seen huge improvements since she was first diagnosed.

Serena Williams - American tennis player

When her sister Venus Williams turned vegan In solidarity Serena adopted the same diet. Since going vegan in 2012 Serena has won the US Open three times.


Torre Washington - Professional bodybuilder

He says-

Food is fuel, so I typically focus on getting in as much of a variety of plant-based, whole foods as possible—the less processed, the better. For me, eating is about being mindful and intuitive to what the body needs, feels like, and (for some) what the body looks like.


David Meyer - Vegan martial artist

David has a strong belief in the rights of animals which led him ultimately towards veganism. Over the years he has won numerous international titles at the top level and is recognised as a pioneer of the sport as one of the first non-Brazilians to achieve black belt.
He says-

“I heard about vegetarianism at college and tried vegetarianism. I started working for animal advocacy and people pointed out the hypocrisy of working for animals and eating animal products. Someone called milk ‘liquid meat' and that really got me thinking.”
“I was vegetarian since 1985 and experimented eating mostly vegan, and have been entirely vegan since 2000. My motivation is entirely to not harm animals. I have experienced that it’s an extremely healthy way to eat, it gives me more energy, it’s better for the environment. I’m morally committed to not harming animals.”


Mike Tyson - An American professional boxer

He went vegan in 2013. He accepted that after turning vegan he got an another opportunity to live a healthy life. He was addicted to drugs and bad cocaine, could hardly breathe, had high blood pressure, was almost dying and had arthritis. Once he adopted vegan lifestyle all that stuff diminished."


List of such people could be very big but here I just want to say that veganism is the ultimate lifestyle for human being on this planet. It is a myth that veganism is not at all practically possible but such people has proved that it is the most healthy and ethical lifestyle.

Great article @chetanpadliya, I didn't know that the Williams sisters were vegan.

My sister also published an article about vegan athletes on our website: https://www.adaptnetwork.com/veganadventurist/8-most-successful-vegan-runners-triathletes/

I have nothing against veganism. In fact, I have a lot of respect for people who have enough discipline (willpower) to stick to such a relatively strict diet.

However, and I don't intend to offend anyone with this comment, when you look like Serena Williams as a girl or Torre Washington as a man, the odds are extremely high that you're using some type of steroid/ HGH. In both of these cases, that type of muscle mass simply is not natural, to so much of an extreme that it very likely isn't the product of genetics or exercise, alone.

Even when body-builders eat loads of meat, getting hundreds of grams of protein per day and lifting heavy weights for hours every (or close to every) day, they're still unlikely to reach these types of physiques, good genetics or not. These physiques are the look of an excessive (unnatural) amount of testosterone and/or human growth hormone (HGH).

Very inspiring! Except Torre, I didn't know the others were vegan.

Ever since we turned to a healthier diet with the focus on plants we have seen our health improve too. My hubby has been free of medication to control Multiple Sclerosis for over 5 years now.
