Shaquille O’Neal Says He is Switching to Vegan Diet

Retired basketball star Shaquille O’Neal said he’s switching to vegan eating in a May 2 interview with Rip Micheals, host of the food and travel show Urban Eats & Treats.

The NBA Hall of Famer told Micheals that the Atlanta restaurant Slutty Vegan offers plant-based alternatives so he can enjoy favorite foods while still getting the health benefits of a vegan diet.

“I like cheeseburgers, right? But the way she cooks it, I can eat healthy, but still feel like I’m eating bad. So whenever I want to cheat, I come over here and cheat,” O’Neal said.

O’Neal previously said a high-protein, low-carb diet helped him get more defined ab muscles, and it involved eating lots of chicken and fish such as a salmon.
