If Prince Fielder Can Go Vegetarian, So Can You | February 22, 2008

Check out this post from AOL Fanhouse.  Milwaukee Brewers slugger Prince Fielder has given up meat and is eating a vegetarian diet.  For those who don’t follow baseball, Prince Fielder is an old-school, non-steroid sculpted, home run hitting machine.  Guys who look like him are not the guys you expect to be vegetarian.  He made the decision after reading a book his wife gave him that described the treatment of animals used in food production. 

“After reading that, (meat) just didn’t sound good to me anymore,” Fielder said. “It grossed me out a little bit. It’s not a diet thing or anything like that. I don’t miss it at all.”

Fielder joins an ever-growing list of vegetarian/vegan athletes including ultimate fighter Mac Danzig, NBA baller Salim Stoudamire, and ultramarathoner Scott Jurek.  If these guys can give up animal products and perform at such high levels, so can you.  For more info on going vegetarian, click here.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
