    Poor Bryan, winning an award from Peta means additional 100 years in purgatory.

  • T-Boy

    He got it because he is vegan.

  • Dangerous Lee

    How the hell does he build muscle from a vegan diet? Not saying he’s jacked, but he is pretty buff considering he eats no meat or animal products.

    • just a fan

      some vegan foods do have at least adequate amounts of protein, beans i know do.

      • Dave Barton

        Yes, beans are high in protein, as are nuts.

      • WNW Fan

        Yeah, their full of "air" too. Beans, their good for your heart. The more you eat the more you…you know!

      He once tweeted a photo of how he puts on mass. LOADS of protein supplements. I'm not a bodybuilder so I don't know how many is considered standard for such a line of work, but it looked like quite a lot.

  • HPK

    Awesome !!! I and My Wife are PETA members and We never knew He was a VEGAN !!! Keep it up !!!

    • Patrick V

      I don’t want to seem like a jackass but it’s My wife and I

  • rkodmr
