‘Strongest Man’ Eats Plants, Loves Animals

He can raise a car clear off the ground, toss huge logs through the air, and lift monster dumbbells. And he hates cruelty to animals. Patrik Baboumian, holder of the “Strongest Man of Germany” title, is a plant-eater!

Like many professional athletes and champion fighters, Patrik recognizes that a healthy plant-based diet gives him the protein and nutrients he needs to build muscle and strengthen his immune system, without clogging his arteries with saturated fat. Patrik also knows that only cowards hurt animals and that one of the most macho things a guy can do is to stop eating foods that cause animals immense suffering.

Patrik stands up for what he believes in – on the homepage of his website, right next to his motto, “Born to Be Bada**”, there’s a PETA Germany video. If this lean, green, weight-lifting machine told me to go vegan and save animal lives, I believe I’d listen to him.

    Just goes to show that people who choose not to eat meat aren’t lacking in power!! and fitness.

    A good balance to the pathetic Olympic sponsering by McDonalds, as though the superfit cram themselves with burgers and cruelty nuggets before the high jump!!!Yes…I know there is a salad alternative but really who goes there for salad? Also is salad that good for performance anyway?

    Loads of non cruel alternatives available, vegetarians often look and feel younger, keep the spirit of youthful compassion alive!!!
