Vegan Diet Powers Tim Bradley’s Welterweight Win

Tim Bradley used a vegan diet to power his victory in a welterweight championship fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas June 9.

Bradley’s opponent, Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines, had been undefeated since 2005. The powerful 33-year-old was a 5-to-1 favorite. But Bradley used a vegan diet during his training regimen, aiming for better energy and quicker recovery between sessions. The victory gives Bradley the welterweight championship and a 29-0 record.

Bradley is following in the footsteps of many other athletes who use a vegan diet to power their successes. Ultramarathon champion Scott Jurek crushes the competition with his vegan diet, as do long-distance running marvels Brendan Brazier and Rich Roll. Former Mixed Martial Arts champion Mac Danzig made the regimen popular among fighters as he rapidly dispatched the competition. Like smoking, an animal-based diet constricts blood flow and reduces endurance.

PCRM recently launched the VegRun program to help both amateur and professional athletes power up their training regimens.
