Jermain Defoe

It is great to see how world class sportsmen and women are now demonstrating how a cruelty free diet improves their sporting performance.

The latest to attribute a Vegan diet to his ongoing success is 33 year old “veteran” England footballer Jermain Defoe who was recalled to the England team for the World Cup Qualifier against Lithuania after an absence of nearly four years and he celebrated with his 20th goal for his country.

After the match, Defoe went on record as saying that his switch to a Vegan diet has enabled him to stay fit and focused on his football career and he said

“I think I’ve managed [to adopt veganism] successfully. My girlfriend suggested I gave it a go. Well, she said to me: ‘You’ve got to do it’ and she’s always showing me documentaries on it. It’s always nice to have someone around you who helps you and drives you on and wants you to do well.”
