Tyrann Mathieu Was Tired Of The Lies

Kansas City Chief safety Tyrann Mathieu began his transition to veganism in 2016. The reasons for changing his diet were simple, “I was tired of eating poison [and] was tired of supporting people that don’t support us in a healthy way.”

Like others on this list, he also says giving up meat has made him feel more energized. Since going vegan, Mathieu has lost 16 pounds and, while he has slipped up and eaten meat once or twice on the road, feels better with a plant-based lifestyle.
