You might not believe it, and there are plenty around the NFL that had a hard time with it too, but it’s true.
In an interview with Clare Farnsworth of the Official Seattle Seahawks Blog, Lutui had this to say for himself, “It’s true and coming into the offseason, this is the best shape I’ve ever been in. I credit that vegan diet.” As a matter of fact, he’s not the only one in his household that’s eating a plant-based diet. Like so many of us that embark on this journey, his whole family is in on it!
“My whole family is vegan,” he said of his wife, Puanani, and their four children. “It’s a little different from the Tonga traditional cuisine. But it’s a lot of education, really, that has kind of opened that insight for me.
“If you were to go to my house and open up the fridge, you’d see all-vegan, all-natural products. I’m glad I’ve educated myself about what’s going in my mouth. I’ve educated myself, and that’s what’s causing my fitness and how I’ve really taken care of myself physically. And it’s also taken a toll on me mentally, just to really be disciplined.”
So, meet Deuce Lutui, proof that being Plant Powered isn’t just for skinny hippies!
