“Man Versus Food” star Adam Richman is known for devouring huge racks of ribs and salivating over massive burgers. But not anymore.

“I’ve been vegan for the past three months,” Richman told The Independent in an interview.

He says he sticks to the diet when he’s training for the other love in his life besides food: soccer. Richman is currently in training for the upcoming Soccer Aid tournament, “and for Soccer Aid I went 100 per cent vegan.”

However, Richman is not a forever vegan. He recently told Hello! Magazine that he adheres to a plant-based diet “periodically.”

“Now does that mean I’m not going to have a steak? No I absolutely will when I want to,” Richman said. “But it’s just about picking and choosing my spots, and when I want to have that cow and I wanna have that bacon, I’m going to make it count, I’m going to make it great quality.”

Richman became famous for “Man Versus Food,” which had him tackle extreme eating challenges across the U.S. Since the show’s end, he’s revealed that he’s lost more than 60 pounds. No doubt in part to his “periodic” vegan diet that’s been proven as the most effective diet for weight loss.

Although we’re disappointed isn’t Richman isn’t a full-fledged vegan, we do applaud his willingness to adopt and promote a plant-based diet.

    Great! I am all for this approach… No need to go extremist/militant on his ass!
    If someone can find an “ethical” slaughterhouse I am sure he can…
