“They all know that I’m a vegetarian now. I tried to keep that under wraps for a while. It’s different for everyone, but I always try to hit three basic food groups and protein is number four in my book. I’m wanting people to get their fruits, vegetables and their grains and that to me is a well-balanced diet. Yes, your body needs protein, but it doesn’t need as much protein as everybody thinks it needs. I’m just trying to get people to eat their vegetables again. I’m like everybody’s father in America right now going “eat your vegetables.” It’s so sad that in 2009, people are still scared of carbohydrates. It’s sad that people are still thinking that you’re getting fat from eating carbs.”
- “The Biggest Loser” trainer Bob Harper speaking out about his vegetarian diet. We mentioned earlier that Harper dropped 100 points from his cholesterol by switching to a plant-based diet and is feeling great! As somebody who’s addicted to “The Biggest Loser” in a pretty serious way, I’m beyond thrilled to hear that Bob is on Team VEG. Keep up the great work!
