The main concern for meat-eaters who are considering going vegan is that they're going to feel weaker. But April Ross, an Olympic volleyball player who is mostly vegan, has never felt better.
She never thought she could go vegan because of how much physical activity she does. But then, during her last off-season, she started experimenting with a plant-based diet, and she found that she didn't miss meat at all—and neither did her body.
"I'm at my strongest," she told Beyond Meat, a brand that produces plant-based meat alternatives—including a burger that "bleeds" vegetable juice. (Full disclosure: Ross is an ambassador of the brand.)
