Top 13 Vegan Athletes | Venus Williams/Patrik Baboumian/Nick Diaz

Hey everyone Josh Baldwin hila G can fit I’m excited to share with you guys my list for the top 13 vegan athletes now obviously there are a ton of really talented plant-based athletes out there but I put this list together to show vegan athletes who are at the top of their sport so not only are all these vegan athletes competing in these grueling sports but they’re actually thriving and many of them are at the absolute top of the sport let’s get right to the list with two of the most impressive athletes and ones that you guys will all know and Serena and Venus Williams they went vegan in 2011 and of course they were successful before this but they’ve been able to stay at the top of the sport at ages 36 and 37 in fact they were the top two players in this year’s Australian Open beating out their much younger and non vegan competitors Venus whose battle with an autoimmune disorder led her to veganism said it definitely changed my whole life it changed the pace I live at you changed everything next up we got the beast Patrick Bablu Mian now a lot of you guys may have seen him on strength Wars and all over YouTube he’s got a great channel as well this German strongman set the world beer keg lifting record and the 20 kilogram front hold record but most impressively he holds the world record for the most weight ever carried by human at twelve hundred and thirty-four pounds which he said at age 37 Patrick said about going vegan I got heavier I got stronger I won the European Championship title and powerlifting I broke three world records so everything was going perfect my blood pressure went down and my recovery time was so much faster so I could train more next up we’ve got jermain defoe who’s one of the top Premier League forward at age 34 he was looking for a way to prolong his career and he hasn’t missed a beat he’s credited his recent switch to a vegan diet as being partly behind his continued excellence at the top level at age 36 Nate and Nick Diaz are a pair of talented MMA fighters both fighters follow a mostly raw vegan diet neither fighter was really ever at the top of the sport but to my surprise as an MMA and Nick was able to beat Conor McGregor just last year at age 32 Scott Jurek is one of the most dominant ultra marathon runners in the world he held the u.s. record for distance run in 24 hours which was 165 miles from 2010 to 2012 he’s been a vegan since 1997 and he’s considered by many to be the greatest ultra runner of all time Scott noted that since going vegan in regards to competing and training I noticed my recovery time that’s shortened that I was less injury prone and had a higher level of energy now everyone knows Carl Lewis is one of the greatest Olympians of all time but what a lot of people don’t know is that in his prime and of course now he was a vegan with nine Olympic gold medals he also set a world record for indoor long jump set in 1984 that still stands Carl adopted a vegan diet to his system in sports and continued it into his retirement in regards to veganism Carl stated I found that a person does not need protein for me to be a successful athlete in fact my best year of track competition was the first year I ate a vegan diet moreover by continuing to eat a vegan diet my weight is under control I like the way I look next up is David Meyer who was a Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitor his competition achievements include two World Championship gold medals for American national goals an American Open gold and two Pan American goals among many others all of these were achieved as a vegan and David has been a vegan since 2000 he once said 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 then we have the freerunning ninja Timothy sheep he’s won dozens of freerunning competitions it holds a record on Ninja Warrior Stage one by finishing in just 62 seconds that’s ten seconds faster than the previous record Tim said to think that 5% more strength is worth the death and enslavement of hundreds is ego at his finest work but actually feels stronger and more efficient anyway Tia Blanco is an American pro surfer a dedicated vegan and yogi she won gold during the women’s final of the 2015 is a World Surfing Games in regards to her diet Tia said I feel really great eating a plant-based diet and love the way it makes me feel physically and mentally many of us know the effects of diet on one’s health but fail to realize that diet plays a huge role in more than just your personal well-being I love animals too much to contribute to suffering next up is Lewis Hamilton who’s a four-time Formula One world champion Hamilton just recently won his fourth title after adopting a vegan diet earlier in the year Hamilton said as the human race what we are doing to the world the pollution coming from the amount of cows that are being produced is incredible the cruelty is horrible and I don’t want to support that Marie Rose was an Australian swimmer who won four gold medals in the 1956 and 1960 Olympics Maria was a lifelong vegan who set 15 World Records in his sport and he attributed much of his success to his vegan diet which was an extremely unusual choice for the time he was really the first great athlete to prove that a plant-based diet won’t stop you from becoming a top level athlete and in fact will most likely make you even better David Haye is a British boxer with world titles in two weight categories they researched the benefits of a plant-based diet on healing race and recovery time after a serious shoulder injury prompted surgery and many he had to take a break from the ring hey says apes are 20 times stronger than humans and they don’t rely on a meat-based diet they eat plants all day long it’s a myth that you need to eat meat for strength I think says David Haye that I’m now fitter than I’ve ever been I punch harder than ever I’m more determined and I’m faster last but definitely not least is Kendrick Farris who’s an American Olympic weightlifter and the only American to compete in weightlifting at the 2016 Olympics Ferris went vegan in 2014 and says that we shouldn’t get so caught up with protein protein protein because you can get an excess of protein and most of it just gets passed or your body now my body recovers a lot faster I feel lighter my mind is a lot more clear I feel I can focus a lot better that focus helped him set a u.s. record of a combined 377 kilograms at the Olympic Trials in May with a 209 kilogram clean-and-jerk and 168 kilogram snatch so I hope this list really shows everyone out there that you can absolutely be at the top of your sport on a plant-based diet not only will you most likely be fast and stronger and better at your sport but you can live with a clean conscience knowing you’re not contributing to the suffering of animals you’re helping the environment and then as a bonus there you’re gonna actually be better at your sport a little longer and happier life and overall you’re just gonna feel so much better for all of my already converted vegans out there my goal of this video is to give you guys a really solid argument for veganism so when you’re out there talking to people and they say well you couldn’t possibly be strong or fast or whatever it may be on a vegan diet you can have these people as examples because a lot of people really don’t know this stuff most people out there I find know a few of these small things maybe they know about the Williams sisters or a few of these athletes but they don’t know that there’s strongmen they don’t know that there’s weight lifters they don’t know a lot of these athletes out there that are completely defying all these stereotypes about vegans so if you guys liked this video please hit the like button share the video subscribe to the channel and I’ll see you at the next one [Music]

What A Vegan Boxer Eats In A Day (David Haye)

Oh crazy the incredibly successful boxer David Haye who was forced into retirement by injuries is making a comeback to the ring and he’s chosen a strict vegan diet to keep his health and athletic performance in peak condition he was plagued by a crippling shoulder injury that some believe can be correlated in part to his previous meat heavy diet and doctors said he would never be able to fight again consuming 24 raw egg whites and four tins of sardines a day their turning point came at the beginning of 2014 when he watched a TV documentary about how animals are farmed killed and prepared for us to eat and he explained I saw all those cows and pigs and realized I couldn’t be a part of it anymore it was horrible I did some research to make sure I could still obtain enough protein to fight and once satisfied that I could I stopped and I’ll never go back some argued that his strict vegan diet would be his downfall as a heavyweight boxer but after a hundred and thirty one second knockout of Mark de Maury hey is looking in the best shape of his life alongside his vegan diet he includes foods known as cert rich foods which are said to activate proteins in the body called sirtuins which regulate biological processes such as aging cellular death inflammation and metabolism and protect cells from dying when they are under stress some of these cert foods include blue briefs parsley turmeric walnuts arugula celery chili kale apples and red onions amongst others the properties in these foods seem to enhance muscle function and improved muscle adaptation so by incorporating these David Haye saw a greater response from his training and a better recovery which allowed him to gain muscle mass David consumes five meals a day and here is what he eats in a typical day first thing upon rising he consumes one green juice which includes kale arugula and parsley for meal one he has pea protein and buckwheat flour pancakes with sliced strawberries walnuts and coconut yogurt then for his first training session he has another green juice meal two is herb marinated tofu with carrot spaghetti red onion arugula and peas meal 3 is a smoothie made of oats vegan protein coconut frozen mixed berries medjool dates mix seeds chaga mushroom spirulina and oat milk meal 4 is white bean quinoa salad with fennel chicory celery red onion dried chili parsley olives and Hermus and finally meal 5 lentil and kale dal served with turmeric buckwheat interestingly studies have shown that vegetarians have a quicker recovery time for breeding rates and muscular performance the non vegetarians named Peters sexiest vegan celebrities of 2014 here in the UK David Haye believes with the help of his vegan diet he can once again become the heavyweight champion thank you so much for watching this video if you liked it please give it a thumbs up I’d love if you could leave a comment below and subscribe for more upcoming videos if you want to see what I’m eating follow me on instagram at 80/10/10 in London you
