Mike Tyson

Though one of the more controversial figures in sports, Mike Tyson is undoubtedly one of the greatest boxers of all time and former heavyweight champion of the world. While he didn’t transition to a vegan diet until retirement, he credits the change with helping him shed 130 pounds. Tyson said of his lifestyle change in 2010, “I wanted a different life. I felt like I was dying. I had an incident in life where I lost my 4-year-old daughter in a tragic accident at home. I don’t know. I didn’t want to live anymore. So I said, that in order to go there, I had to change my life.”
