Daniel Bryan explains why he is no longer a vegan



Rvamag.com posted an interview with WWE superstar Daniel Bryan. He is an excerpt:

Q. To change gears for a second, you were famously touted as a vegan athlete for the longest time, but I understand you had to give it up, right?

Daniel Bryan: Yeah, I developed a really bad soy intolerance, where it was making me really sick. Right now, I stick with a mostly vegetarian diet. Sometimes I’ll eat a little meat here and there just out of convenience more than anything else. I still eat mostly vegan and if it’s not mostly vegan, it’s vegetarian. When I’m at home, it’s not a problem at all. It’s just when you’re on the road so much. Finding vegan food without soy in it and still being able to get your protein and that sort of thing that you need as an athlete is very, very difficult. I’ve been fortunate because there’s a company called Vega who does vegan protein shakes and that sort of thing. They’ve sent me free vegan protein and all that kind of stuff, and their products are amazing. They don’t have soy in it, so that’s been fantastic, but finding real food besides that has been very, very difficult. Sometimes I have to eat some eggs or eat a little bit of meat just to get by, you know?

    I could imagine how hard it is keeping up a normal diet on the road much less vegan.

  2. What? says:

    “Sometimes I have to…eat a little bit of meat just to get by.”

    In other words, meat is part of a normal, healthy diet.

    Absolutely. Humans are omnivores, that is why we have canine teeth. I tried to be a vegetarian for a while, but it always left me personally unsatisfied as always hungry and wanting to graze. I actually put on weight as a vegetarian because breads and pastas were the only things that could satisfy my hunger. Some smaller people can get by with being vegetarians, but I simply couldn’t at a natural 6’2″ 225lbs. I’ve never personally known anyone who could stick with a strictly vegan diet for a lifetime.
