I suspect the nutritionist will encourage him to continue eating meat.

Just don't eat a lot of meat before a game...you will be sluggish as the Tigers were at the Sugar Bowl

I love a thinker and a baller!!

Just don't eat pasta for your last meal before the game. That will make you sleepy and sluggish. Eat the protein!!!

Didn't America's favorite former football player (Kaepernick) switch to being vegan and ended up losing like 20 pounds and going from being a super bowl QB to a bad QB?

Big difference between vegan and vegetarian, but the similarity is...no meat.

I hope he continues eating meat. Will come in handy in consuming: Aggies, Cardinals, Eagles, Orange(s), Bees, Chicken, little Indians, stupid elephants, and anything else that comes his way.

I heard Saban footed the bill for us to have a big Turkey dinner with all the fixings before the SB. Was a very classy move on his part

While heís in his playing days he prbly still needs to eat it, especially for the physical position heíll be playing. But after those days are over itís best to mostly eat fatty fish, salmon, herring etc.


Doubt there are too many of them but Tony Gonzalez was a vegetarian & heís one of the greatest of all time.

Discussing nutrition in a public forum is akin to asking for a war. Ask 10 people, you get 50 different philosophies.

Having trained several outstanding athletes of many different disciplines, many of whom were whole food plant-based, I can tell you, the amount of protein we are encouraged to take in is FAR more than what is actually required. What's more, the amount of animal protein a lot of these athletes are encouraged to consume taxes the liver tremendously.

As always, YMMV, but there is NO reason that a top level athlete cannot go vegan, perform at a high level, and still get his or her protein needs from plants.

Tony Gonzalez (perhaps the greatest TE to every play) was a vegan for most of his NFL career. At 6'4" and around 250 lbs, he's not small. Definitely lean, but he had a very very long and equally successful career. There is a precedence to his comments.
