Before I became a vegetarian, the excuses I used most often for not eating more vegetables included: “I won’t get enough protein if I don’t eat meat” and “I won’t have as much energy if I don’t eat meat.” I hear these same reasons today from other people who — although they acknowledge that eating vegetables is good for you — are unwilling make plant products (as opposed to animal products) the foundation of their diet.

Here’s a video by one of the guys who finally inspired me to make the switch to a vegetarian diet, a Vegan athlete who calls himself da1sinister. The next time you tell yourself “I’ll get weaker” or some similar nonsense, think of this guy.
