The vegan community was devastated to learn that Jim Morris, one of the first major vegan bodybuilders, passed away last Thursday in California at the age of 80. A vegetarian for thirty years and a vegan for fifteen, Morris turned the fitness community over on its head when he first declared he had stopped eating meat, and subsequently all animal products. He was a former titleholder of Mr. America. In his seventies, Mr. Morris did photoshoots demonstrating his muscular physique, shocking people around the world who were able to see just how buff this man could be in his middle age and as a vegan.

“I hear that humans are omnivores,” Mr. Morris told PETA. “I think there’s a slight deception there. We can survive on a lot of things, but just because we can, doesn’t mean it’s good for us,” he said, lamenting the unhealthy proteins of meat. He also spoke of how being a vegan helped him relate better to the other creatures of the world, backing up his vegan diet with the connection he feels to non-human animals.

Mr. Morris was a wonderful example of how we vegans DO get enough protein, and served as an important voice for fitness enthusiasts who love animals.
