Vegan Athlete Deadlifts 405 lbs

Many of the most successful athletes worldwide are now vegan. While they may differ in that they have decided to go vegan to avoid animal cruelty, for their health, to reduce environmental impact, or other reasons, they have one large similarity. They have proved that excellence and veganism often go together.

Myths still persist that state that it is not possible to be vegan and be successful in sport. These myths do not have a foundation in science, and athletes build muscle, endurance and ability on plant sources and many go on to achieve great things. The performance of these athletes is proof that veganism can and does enable excellence

Don - will you be getting another lipid profile soon? I believe the last one you had done was in 10/12. It would be interesting to see how you're progressing on your new dietary regimen.

BTW - how low doe you want your LDL to be? If it doesn't go down to around 70 mg/dL will you use a statin?

Funny how both Don and Tracy are looking less and less like these vegan athletes since they switched from paleo to vegan.
