Did you know Lewis Hamilton is vegan? November 1 is World Vegan Day. Improving everything from cholesterol and heart rate to concentration and a solid night’s sleep, there seem to be plenty of health benefits to ditching dairy, meat, and eggs. However, one thing that many people worry about when going vegan is getting enough protein. Surprisingly, many top athletes — including world champions, martial artists, and an Olympic weightlifter — don’t seem to be worried in the slightest about getting enough protein from their vegan diets.
Business Insider has compiled a list of world-class vegan athletes who are at the top of their game — and have a fully vegan lifestyle to thank for it.

Venus Williams is an American tennis player who has won seven Grand Slam singles titles and 14 Grand Slam Women’s doubles titles. She has also won the prestigious Wimbledon women’s singles title five times and has four Olympic gold medals. The tennis star adopted a raw vegan diet after she was diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome in 2011 and doctors advised it would relieve some of her symptoms such as extreme fatigue and joint pain. Williams said: “I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and I wanted to maintain my performance on the court.

In 2008, he won three of the four major boxing world titles at cruiserweight. Haye researched the benefits of a plant-based diet on healing rates and recovery time after a serious shoulder injury prompted surgery and meant he had to take a break from the ring. He has now been vegan for four years. Haye said: ” 20 times stronger than humans and they don’t rely on a meat-based diet. They eat plants all day long. It’s a myth that you need meat for strength.

Barny du Plessis is the world’s first vegan bodybuilder and Mr Universe 2014, amongst other national and international titles. Du Plessis went vegan after retiring from bodybuilding in 2013 due to an ever-growing list of health concerns which included hernias and acid reflux. After adopting a vegan lifestyle, the bodybuilder saw his fitness radically improve and he returned to the stage — winning the prestigious Mr Universe title in 2014. These days I train half as much, do half as much but get better results. Only one answer, going vegan, GMO free, and organic.
My body is running perfectly,” du Plessis told the Metro. On getting back into competing after turning vegan with his partner, Josie — World’s Strongest Woman 2010 — du Plessis said: “We now have a point to prove and a massive incentive. We are representing the vegans of the world, all the animals and the environment. My crusade is to show the world that we can live a healthy, happy, and prosperous life without exploitation of innocent creatures.
