Mike Tyson: Extreme Vegan Case Study?

Earlier we reported how boxer, Mike Tyson, had gone vegan. In an interview with Details, Iron Mike talks about how his vegan journey -- and it's interesting, to say the least.

Tyson on being vegan:

Yeah, it's been eight months with this vegan stuff, but I get these explosions of energy. I don't know how long they last, but they're like explosions. So powerful.
On this "energy" being calmer, Tyson says:
Oh, I don't know if I'd go that far. I don't think it's been long enough for that kind of Zen shit.
On going the rest of his life without eating a candy bar:
Maybe so. I'm pretty fucking extreme.
Tyson goes on to talk about how he's matured, about not being a "guru follower" and learning to love himself. The entire interview is definitely worth reading over at Details.

PS -- Did you know that Tyson was a tea drinker?
