Phil Neville is a former professional footballer, ex-Manchester United coach and now coach of the English Women’s team. Phil sat down with PETA to discuss the vegan lifestyle and his initial misconceptions about its nutritional benefits and the stigma surrounding it.
He now admits to understanding the benefits of the lifestyle and the ease of getting all the nutrients necessary to perform at his peak. He also talks about the benefit to the environment and the animals in doing so.
We love seeing those in elite level sport spouting the benefits of the plant-based vegan lifestyle for two major reasons.
- It shows that its the optimum nutritional diet for elite performance
- They are role models for so many people that what they say and what they eat, matters!
