In a new episode of Oprah Winfrey’s “Where Are They Now?,” airing today (April 9th), Mike Tyson passionately discusses his vegan lifestyle – and how it helped guide him to becoming a better person.
“I’m not on drugs, I’m not out on the streets, I’m not in clubs,” the 46-year-old explains. “And, everything that I do now is just basically structured around the development of my life and my family.
“I lost weight, I dropped over a hundred pounds. I just felt like changing my life, doing something different. And so I became a vegan. Becoming a vegan, it gave me another opportunity to live a healthy life. I was just hard wheel, so congested from all the drugs and bad cocaine, and I couldn’t hardly breathe, high blood pressure, almost dying, and arthritis.
“Once I became a vegan, all that stuff, it diminished.”
