Iron Mike Tyson, or should we say Veggie Mike Tyson, recently joined Twitter and used the social networking service to tweet about the energy he is receiving from his vegan diet.

The former heavyweight champion tweets, “It’s almost been nine months with this vegan stuff. It brings some great energy.”

As we reported earlier this month, Tyson has stuck to a plant-based diet for nearly a year and is so committed and “extreme” that he could live the rest of his life without a candy bar—even his past favorite the Baby Ruth.
