Vegan Ironman John Joseph – Meat Is For Pussies!
There are approximately 1 million vegans in America. Forty-two percent report that they transitioned to the vegan diet after watching an educational film or documentary. Forty-five percent reported that they made a gradual transition to the vegan lifestyle. (1) Seventy-nine percent of vegans are women. Some even go so far as to state that a vegan diet is a woman’s lifestyle. (2)
Is the vegan diet a women’s lifestyle? Vegan, Ironman, John Joseph would disagree!
Punk singer and athlete, John Joseph, would adamantly disagree. As a teenager, Joseph was a homeless drug addict and alcoholic. He was no stranger to jails or violence. Thirty-five years later, Joseph is a vegan athlete with five Ironman triathlons under his belt. He has recently wrote and published a book entitled, Meat Is For Pussies, and credits his meat-free diet to his transformation. (3)
In his book, he discusses the strength and endurance that many people attach to a carnivorous diet. He reflects on his past and reports that if someone would have told him in the 1980s that he would be on a plant-based diet at age 53 and completing Ironman triathlons, he would have laughed in their face. (3)
Joseph’s background is not one of love and nurture. He came from a violent, alcoholic home and was placed in orphanages and abusive foster homes. At 14, he was homeless on the streets and got shot and stabbed. As a juvenile, he completed two years in the worst juvenile prisons. (3)
When speaking of his transformation, Joseph shares that when his food changed, everything else followed.
