If Arian Foster is a stud and one of the best backs in the league, then why is he taking heat from the fans and his teammates. 3 reasons. Legumes. Lentils. And to-furkey. He went vegan and now everyone around him is going crazy, quote: “everybody cares what I eat now. They didn’t care before, but they do now. Everybody is a nutrionist now and they’re an expert on protein.” I’m no expert. But I know this: meat can be a real de-cleater. If I bury a 22 ounce bone in ribeye at Mastros, forget having to compete at the highest levels athletically, I can barely make it to the valet stand.
