Listen to Mike Tyson talk about becoming a vegan, dropping over 100 lbs and his “new life”

via OWN TV

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson says everything in his life today is structured around what’s best for him and his family. Watch as he opens up about losing more than 100 pounds and how becoming a vegan helped improve his blood pressure, arthritis and more. Plus, Mike shares his love for his wife, Kiki, and his children.

Hearing Iron Mike talk about stuff like this, as much as we have heard over the last few years, is still a surreal experience to me.

“Becoming a vegan gave me another opportunity to live a healthy life. I was so congested from all the drugs and bad cocaine, I could hardly breathe, [I had] high blood pressure, [was] almost dying [and had] arthritis. And once I became a vegan all that stuff diminished.” – Mike Tyson

Just unbelievable but incredible. An awesome intimidating bruiser of a man, has changed his life so totally by becoming a vegan it makes you think of what doing something like that could do to you.

The rub for me, as always, is that when you look at what he went through you never can even remotely compare what you are going through to what he went through, so you say (or at least I do), “Hmph I’m not that bad…. I can get it together when I want to.”

Thats stupid. It should actually prove as MORE inspiration because if it did that for him, you can only imagine what it would do for you….
