Bodybuilders trade steak for spinach


BodybuildersYou might assume that all bodybuilders eat steak three times a day and pop steroids in between. But, according to a story in today’s New York Times, there’s a growing group of sculpted competitors that are choosing a new kind of diet: Veganism.

Denny Kakos, the president of the International Natural Bodybuilding Association, told the Times that he had no vegan bodybuilders enter competitions in the 80s and 90s but that since 2000, “they have been a steady, small presence.”

And guess what? They’re able to maintain their muscle-popping physiques, and some have won competitions against traditional bodybuilders. (Score one for vegetable and hemp protein!)

It turns out Popeye had it right all along.
