I wonder how the Panthers training staff feels about it?

I looked and was very surprised to find a surprising number of NFL players are vegan.

 I remember seeing that a bunch of Titans are vegan. One of the guys’ wives Makes all the meals for everyone that is vegan and brings them in to the facility every day.

True. Most vegans I know go heavy on the carbs. I doubt Cam is doing that though. 

I think it’s great that he has a guy giving him shoulder treatment 2-3x a day. Brady has a similar person that treats him everyday.

I think Robert Kraft had someone working on him a few times a day as well.

We have digits for picking fruit.

Teeth for piercing vegetation.

Long digestive tracts for absorbing nutrients from fiber. 

 

Yada yada yada 

We have almost nothing in common in terms of digestion with true carnivores like lions, yet we are supposed to eat mostly meat?

That's pretty silly.

We have also evolved to have 3 or 4 times the amount of amylase (than other primates or early Humans) to break down complex starches into energy. Which is an interesting fact to consider when you hear about a lot of these diets.

everybody going vegan means the death of the earth.   we as humans will destroy it at a pace unimaginable.   yeah, it's good for you personally, but not for the planet.  how can that be?   it has to do with the inefficiency of eating meat.   the energy loss that comes from eating an animal instead of a plant is tremendous.  if we switch to plant based diets there will be 10 times the food on the planet that there is now.  10 times.  any idea what that would do to the population of humans?  a population that is already out of control.   yes i understand this is difficult to digest. i also understand that with proper education this would not be the case, but we're in the 1st world where we get to take crappy education for granted

Not longer lasting, that's the same. Just harder since all your arteries really open up including the one that flows blood to your peen.

That by itself should be enough motivation. I’ve simply started cutting meat from lunches several times a week  and tried to increase my fiber a lot. Even with those small changes, I’ve definitely had a noticeable change in erections. Talk about a boost in your confidence; it makes me feel like I did when I was 18 and in tip-top physical shape.

Pretty sure Arian Foster couldn’t stay healthy after switching to Vegan.  I don’t think it’s sustainable for the NFL.

 

That said, it probably helps tremendously with the recovery speed of his shoulder.

People have been eating meat since time immemorial and did not suffer from chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity. Last 50 years the USDA told the United States population that a low-fat grain-based diet was healthy. Meat was bad. Fat was bad especially saturated fat. Processed vegetable oil like Crisco and margarine was good. The whole world followed suit. Now more than 2/3 the US population are overweight with 1/3 being obese. almost 10% of the US population has diabetes and 1/3 are pre-diabetic.

http://www.espn.com/blog/tennessee-titans/post/_/id/26419/vegan-meals-all-the-rage-for-titans-with-15-players-converted

this was from last year. I didn’t realize the foreshadowing. Derrick Morgan is a DE, and a vegan, and a free agent, and his wife makes vegan meals. Coincidentally, Cam is now a vegan and will need someone to make vegan meals and we need a DE? 

poo is a lock.

plus he will probably take the Panthers hometown discount that 99% of FAs are dying to accept.

Since we are on the topic of nutrition and this is supposed to be a football forum, here is another ESPN article discussing the Bills and nutrition. It speaks to eating for actual nutrition. Also, you see the Bills, who have a financial incentive to keep players as healthy and fit as they can be, spending money for grass-fed meats. I thought that was interesting, as well as the   Spice shooters to help w inflammation.

This was an entirely predictable trainwreck. Whenever you have the opportunity to combine bro-science with emotionally invested opinions you get a guaranteed (and usually entertaining) trainwreck.

Kind of not for the football forum...  but, can someone explain to me how you get you're daily caloric needs and protein off a vegan diet?  If I'm cutting, I usually go 1700 cals/day.  I could eat twenty 3 lbs. bags of spinach, and I would probably be at 300 calories total lol.  So, how do you get enough calories and protein...  especially if you dont add eggs or meat?  And it seems you just have to eat so much more bc the options arent calorie dense.

With the more stuff I've read, I'm thinking more about cutting out meat, but it just seems impossible.

 

Seriously.  You can not be that dumb.  I haven't eaten meat in over 20 years and probably healthier than most of you bubble but youngsters.

I love his dedication. He’s willing to go to the extremes to do it, but veganism is not the answer. Long term, it is a unhealthy unnatural, malnourishing diet. This will not end well. 

I think this guy works for Smithfield Foods.
