Many pro-athletes have gone vegan for health reasons, and as a result have seen an increase in their performance. Tony Gonzalez, tight end for the Atlanta Falcons recently said that adopting vegan principles has led to his major-league success. Since going veg, Gonzalez has broken two major records.

Other vegan athletes include Prince Fielder, first basemen for the Milwaukee Brewers, and mixed martial arts fighter Mac Danzig.
