I stopped eating any kind of meat when I was 5 years old, the day I found out it came from animals. That initial motivation still holds, but there are many other factors that now support that choice for me. I've done sports my whole life, and now compete professionally in MMA. I'm strong, fit, have energy to train all day and recover quickly. How I eat is a huge part of that. In addition to not eating meat, I eat very little dairy and gluten, and no refined sugar. Fresh fruit and veggies are a huge part of my diet.
