We knew that Mike Tyson recently went vegan, but we had no idea that he lost 130 lbs! In a revealing interview with ESPN, Tyson talks about his amazing weight loss and desire to change after the tragic death of his daughter.
Tyson on losing 130 lbs:
I became a vegan. Vegan is where no animal products. No livestock products. Nothing. I just did a lot of training and try to become more faithful in life. I wanted a different life. I felt like I was dying. I had an incident in life where I lost my 4 year old daughter in a tragic accident at home. I don't know. I didn't want to live anymore. So I said, that in order to go there, I had to change my life. I am going to change everything I dislike about myself. I changed everything that I was as a human being. I started that journey in October or November. … I don't smoke anymore. I wanted to give up everything. I had to change my life. I didn't have a problem with drugs or nothing. I had a problem with thinking. My thinking was broken. That was the solution of my broken thinking using drugs and living crazy. It was just the way I was thinking.Wow. What a turnaround. Go Iron Mike!
