British heavyweight wrestling champion Zack Sabre Jr. has credited his plant-based diet for his powerful physique.

The athlete made the comments in a video for vegan charity PETA, which carries the motto: “Vegan strong – powered by plants.”

‘Everything changed’

According to Sabre, ‘everything changed instantly’ when he went vegan in 2015 after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives.

“I just felt so much more energised,” he said. “Just eating plants … whole foods, you know, full of water, minerals, vitamins … you just feel good.” 

He has also spoken out about the use of animals in fashion, saying veganism is not just dietary – and there is ‘no reason to be wearing clothes that have come at the expense of tortured animals’. His jacket, shin guards, and shoes are all leather-free and vegan.
