NBA Forward Wilson Chandler Claims Going Vegan Fueled One Of The Best Seasons Of His Career
Many of us hear the term ‘veganism’ and take it as seriously as an Adam Sandler movie. Vegans adhere to a strictly plant-based diet, forgoing all meats and animal products. No meat, no eggs, no dairy, no tacos, no pizza. Sounds like a prison sentence to me.
But many elite athletes are giving veganism a more serious look, including Damian Lillard and Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler.
The 30-year-old recently talked with Business Insider about conforming to veganism over a year ago on a tip from former NBA guard Chris Douglas-Roberts.
Plagued with injuries and health-related issues from 2011-2016, Chandler turned to veganism in an attempt to combat these nagging problems at the beginning of 2016.
