Master of Technical Wrestling Says That His Vegan Diet Keeps Him in Prime Fighting Shape

Las Vegas — “As a WWE Superstar, staying healthy and having a lot of energy helps me succeed in the ring—that’s why I choose to be a vegan,” says Daniel Bryan in his brand-new pro-vegan ad for peta2, PETA’s youth division. At 198 muscular pounds, Bryan is in the best shape of life—and he says it’s all because of his plant-based diet.

In an exclusive Q&A with peta2, Bryan explained that chronic health problems since childhood led his doctor to suggest that Bryan go vegan. Now, a year later, Bryan says, “[T]his whole year, my energy levels have been great. … I’m stronger right now than I’ve ever been … I’m dead-lifting more than I ever have before.”

And Bryan’s diet isn’t just good for his health—it’s also good for the environment. “[I]t only makes sense to save the planet that you stop eating meat because it … produces so much carbon dioxide,” he explains. “[T]here’s not enough resources for everybody to eat meat.”

Why else is a vegan diet the diet of champions? Vegans can get all the protein that they need from plant-based foods without the artery-clogging saturated animal fats and cholesterol found in meat. The consumption of meat and other animal-derived products has been strongly linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. In addition to greenhouse-gas emissions, meat production is also a leading cause of water pollution and land degradation. And, of course, the best way to fight the cruelty of factory farms and slaughterhouses is to kick the meat habit.

Daniel Bryan joins a long list of athletes—including Mac Danzig, Jake Shields, and Rich Roll—who have teamed up with peta2 to promote a vegetarian diet.

    Sounds like HBK should take Bryan out for some hunting. Good for him though with this diet. I couldn’t do that.

    Explaining why many myths about veganism are wrong… with generalizations, myths, misconceptions, and misinformation about diets containing meat. Gotta love it!

    That’s why I can never take many of the outspoken vegans/vegetarians seriously. It’s never about selling an animal free diet on its own merits (of which there are many), but taking any and every opportunity, no matter how devoid of facts, to put down meat.

    I definitely believe there is a problem with over consumption of meat, but moderation is the key, not absolutely removing it. As for the carbon footprint aspect, unless you’re eating locally (something many people do but not a lot), cutting out meat doesn’t mean your food is “guilt free.”

    I’m not even going to touch teaming up with PETA. That itself should speak volumes about the legitimacy of this whole affair.

    I don’t think he was “pushing” his lifestyle on anyone. He was promoting his beliefs, and explaining why many myths about veganism are wrong.

    Besides, BRYAN DANIELSON (god, why don’t they just call him that), has always been very vegan and pro animal rights.
