Mike Tyson joins Twitter, tweets about vegan energy


Mike Tyson recently joined Twitter and used the platform to mention his new vegan lifestyle. Tyson tweets, “It's almost been nine months with this vegan stuff. It brings some great energy.”

Iron Mike's switch to a plant-based diet was originally revealed during a 90-minute interview for the series "CenterStage" earlier this year. In the August edition of Details Magazine Tyson revealed that the vegan diet gives him powerful energy explosions and he is willing to go the rest of his life without eating a Baby Ruth candy bar.

The former heavyweight champion’s new show Animal Planet's “Taking on Tyson”— where Tyson introduces viewers to the competitive world of pigeon racing—is set to debut in early 2011.

  1. Hopefully the only ears he will be chomping on are that of corn.

    I would love to know if he thinks he is more calm now that he is a vegan. Or at least if the energy explosions are different than before. Either way, good for him. It is nice to hear about people making a change for the better.

  5. Uhh, anyone else think it's a bit odd that he's going vegan but racing pigeons? Racing pigeons is not a vegan activity in the slightest.

  8. Real men realize that eating meat is just a crutch for society to keep leaning on so they don't have to evolve. And being a vegan is weak?... :)

  9. If Mike can do it, others should be encouraged to try it too. Good for you Mike!
