Veganism Next Step for Football Player Tyrann Mathieu
Tyrann Mathieu, professional football player for the Arizona Cardinals, has stated via Twitter that he plans to ditch “poison” and opt for a plant-based lifestyle instead.
He was asked by Jordan Cryer via Twitter why he decided to try veganism, and Mathieu replied, tweeting:
“I was tired of eating poison & was tired of supporting people that don’t support us in a healthy way.”
While he is still in the transition phase, he received tweets of support, questions about his protein intake (of course!) and what his favorite vegan foods were. As everyone transitions to veganism in their own way–some overnight, and some needing more time to adjust, he updated his fans on his progress, tweeting:
“I am not 100% vegan just yet, I am closing in tho…. I feel amazing, energized & got damn confident !!”
