    Yeah I think it's fair to say you can compete at a top level with a balanced plant based diet.

    Incidentally as a Man Utd fan I try to keep it quiet Chris Smalling is a vegan, probably not the best example :D

    There are many American Football players in the NFL turned vegan, and even more who are about 80-90% plant based, but not fully vegan.

    Tom Brady, widely considered the greatest player of all time favours the latter approach and a lot of players in the league have followed his lead.

    There's a link to such an article at the bottom of OP but copy and paste is needed.
    Some defensive players can weigh almost 300lb in NFL, a very physically demanding sport.

    I wonder does Tom Brady meditate? As far as I know his Brazilian wife does TM. Maybe more a game changer than diet.

    Gone to crap ever since :)

    Nothing to do with being vegan though, just turned into a wally

    Think diet is very over-rated myself for elite athletes, not saying Vegan is good or not, don't have a clue.

    Just think when your so genetically gifted, you can get away not eating perfect, I wouldn't be looking at elite athletes vegan diets for inspiration, they could eat chicken nuggets all day and still be the incredible

    eg Phelps, Usain Bolt, Le Bron James etc

    Diet is hugely important for any sportsperson, at elite level even more so.

    Alot of them have crap diets, you'd be shocked

    Genetics > Diet

    Most athletes that win Gold would not have the best genetics, they just want to be winners and work that bit harder and take any small percentage they can get, nutrition being the area where least effort would give greatest results.

    I never heard of Tom Brady before today but I'd be fairly sure he meditates.

    Most if not all competitors in any sport meditate.

    You forget the PEDs part.

    I believe he does. He has his own company specialising in nutrition and lifestyle advice for athletes. When you can play in to your 40’s in probably the most demanding position in any sport it gives you a lot of credibility in that regard.

    There are some great stories around veganism in the NFL if anyone cares to do a bit of googling. Look up the Tennessee Titans in particular.

    You can take all the steriods and growth hormones you want but if you are eating rubbish food everyday they're not going to do you much good.

    The video is just about his plant based dietary intake.
    There is no mention of his training techniques.

    Yep! He's far from weak. :)
