Heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson, went vegetarian and then vegan in an effort to be healthier and happier. It seemed to be going really well: he lost about 100 pounds and many of his health ailments cleared up. However, he recently told FOX 411 that he “should” be vegan, but he is no longer.

“I was a vegan for four years but not anymore. I eat chicken every now and then. I should be a vegan,” Tyson said in the interview. When asked if he ate red meat, the boxer replied, “None at all, no way! I would be very sick if I ate red meat. That’s probably why I was so crazy before.”

Tyson was originally motivated to try a plant-based diet when his now-wife tried it, and after watching the health documentary, “Forks Over Knives.” With all the health benefits he gained from ditching animal products, one can’t help but wonder: What happened?!
