A bunch of nobodies, has-beens, and never was.

BJ Armstrong? HAHAHA

Bill Walton? The same guy that wanted the Grateful Dead to play halftime shows and wore headbands spiked with acid... while barely being able to run on his bad knees?

Billy Jean King? I guess pussy isn't considered 'meat'.

The hank aaron thing is total BS, copied from one nonfact checking vegetarian propoganda site to another. To quote [link to atlanta.bizjournals.com]
"He owns more than a dozen fast-food restaurants, including Popeyes and Church's, and six auto dealerships. In 2002 he was awarded a Krispy Kreme franchise in Atlanta and has surmised publicly that his one doughnut shop has managed to bring in more revenue than many of his other stores combined."

Somehow I doubt the homerun king is a vegatarian and running fried chicken franchises, lol. Do some actual research before copying and pasting erroneous lists.

Re: FAMOUS ATHLETES who are VEGETARIANS or VEGANS.
Does a Vegetarian diet actually supply greater strength and endurance than a flesh diet?
Endurance was tested by Dr. Irving Fisher of Yale University, who conducted a series of experiments with forty-nine random individuals representing the two types of dietary habits. The first test was that of holding the arms horizontally. The comparison showed a great superiority on the side of the vegetarians.
“Only 2 of the 15 flesh eaters taking this test succeeded in holding their arms out over a quarter of an hour, whereas 22 of the 32 abstainers surpassed that limit. None of the flesh eaters reached half an hour, but 15 of the 32 abstainers surpassed that limit. Of these 9 exceeded an hour, 4 exceeded 2 hours and 1 exceeded 3 hours.”

The second test was that of deep knee bending. Only one of the ten flesh eaters reached 1000 times as against ten of the twenty-one abstainers. None of the former surpassed 2000 times as against 4 vegetarians. The flesh abstainers excelled with an average of 883 times as against an average of 333 times for the flesh eaters.
Strength was assessed by Dr. Schontenden, who tested students at the University of Brussels to compare strength of exclusively vegetarian individuals against that of predominantly meat eaters. Students were subjected to two physical tests: (1) squeezing f an “ergo-graph” with the right hand, and (2) weight lifting. The results revealed that the vegetarians achieved an average of 72 points with the ergo-graph; the meat eaters only 35 points. The strongest vegetarian reached a figure of 1467 points in weight lifting, while the strongest of the meat eaters achieved only 989 points. Rather surprisingly the vegetarians recovered much more quickly after the exertion, and therefore could repeat the experiment more readily than their opponents.

Murray Rose, an Australian and one of the world’s great athletes, is a flesh abstainer. His accomplishments include the following:
In 1958, at age 17, Murray won three gold medals at the Olympic Games in Melbourne, becoming the youngest triple gold medalist in the history of the games.
In 1958 and 1959 he established himself as the world’s greatest all-round swimmer of his time by winning in three totally different distances – in a sprint (200 meter relay); in the middle distance event (400 meters); and in the grueling, long-distance marathon (1500 meters).
He was the first swimmer in the world to the 18-minute barrier in the 1500 meter distance; and e set three world records in the 400 meter, 800 meter, and 1500 meter distances.
Murray ascribes his success in sports to his vegetarian diet. He does not eat meat, fish, or poultry – foods which, according to him, produce acids that cause fatigue. Nor does he drink coffee, tea, or alcoholic beverages. His diet includes cheese, eggs, goats milk, soybeans, nuts, sunflower seeds, millet, sesame products, unpolished rice, and homemade juices of apple, grape, pineapple, tomato, and carrot.

Jack LaLanne (Fitness guru) (vegan)
 Quoting: StillAnOptimist


from the wiki on jack lalanne:

LaLanne blamed overly processed foods for many health problems. For most of his life, he advocated primarily a meat and vegetable diet; eating meat three times per day with eggs and fruit in morning and many servings of vegetables in afternoon and evening.


[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]


for most of his life, he ate paleo.
