Mike Tyson, a vegan for two years, said he feels mentally “incredible” on his vegan diet. That great feeling was what motivated Tyson to stay with the vegan diet. In an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Tyson said, “I wonder why I was crazy all those years.” His answer: the “garbage” he was eating! Plus, the drugs didn’t help, as he noted. Tyson said his wife prepares his vegan meals, and she inspired him to become a vegan. These days Tyson is focusing on life with his wife and kids.
