    Cam Newton Is A Vegan

    BOSTON (CBS) — After years of hearing about Tom Brady’s unique diet, Patriots fans are now getting a serving of what Cam Newton has on his dinner table. Newton, however, isn’t selling his methods of eating, and is instead discussing the benefits of a vegan diet.

    The new Patriots quarterback stars in a new campaign for PETA, where he discusses his switch to a vegan diet last year. Newton made the change as he was coming back from shoulder surgery, and saw the benefits almost immediately.

    “I’ve seen such a remarkable change in the way my body responds to the food that I eat,” Newton said in the new campaign, which has the quarterback sporting a “Vegan Strong” T-shirt.

    So his vegan diet will be coming with him to Foxboro in 2020. Newton dismissed some of the misconceptions people may have with the diet in the video, which shows him loading up a hamburger with plenty of vegan goodness.

    “I don’t want people to think that you can’t love food being vegan, or there’s not good-tasting food that’s vegan. That’s completely false,” he said. “A person may ask, ‘How do you get your protein? How do you get this or that?’ You get it in the same way that they get it, know what I’m saying? The more cleaner, more fresher way.

    “It’s discipline,” he added. “We have to incorporate a lot of discipline in our everyday lives, so why not with our food?”

    IMO improved nutrition and proper sleep are the two next ways athletes will improve their performance. If Newton cuts out the junk food he could see huge benefits to a Vegan diet... even if not the placebo effect is real and it may help him that way.
