Some Vegan Superheroes!

I was so excited yesterday to read about the diets of the two trainers on the popular TV show The Biggest Loser. Bob Harper is a vegan and was the 2010 spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary. It looks like he has been vegan for about 3 years according to my rough calculations. Check out an interview with him below. I love the part where he says that every product you buy in a grocery store is a vote - a vote for the kind of food you want to see, and a vote *against* the food you are choosing not to buy.

Jillian Michaels is the other trainer on the show. She does not eat a complete plant-based diet, but beef, chicken, and dairy are all excluded from her diet. A tidbit: Jillian will be leaving the show at the end of this season (to focus on motherhood). I think it is a real testament to a plant-based diet to have these two role-models, who are seen as two of the healthiest people in America, eliminating all or most animal products from their diet.
