Wow! I haven't seen that name in about 10 years! Ed was one of the first vegan athletes I ever heard of. :)

Richard and I will keep working on this. Thanks!


Definitely! It's interesting to me because skateboarding (i.e. Ed himself) and hardcore music are what turned me onto animal rights, and eventually veganism, when I was younger and those were relatively underground things at the time. Now younger kids are able to learn about being vegan in more mainstream ways, which is definitely a positive thing but something that just struck me with your comment.

Also, Jon Fitch would be a good addition - he's another vegan UFC fighter.

Awesome. Great to hear. Yeah, lots of stories and reasons people got into it, especially back in the day.

Thanks for the additional names too!

I used to train with Bob. He even has my book and a Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness t-shirt :)

Hoping he'll return to the vegan lifestyle soon. Might see him in LA in a few weeks and can support him if he wants to talk about it.

Did someone mentioned Patrick Babaumian? (german's Strong Men)

He was vegetarian and became vegan this year.
