Shaquille O’Neal has just joined the team of plant-based athletes. The superstar basketball Hall of Famer joins a list of champions who choose to fuel up on vegan eats, which includes Venus Willians, Tom Brady, Novak Djokovic, Alex Morgan, and hundreds of others who have ditched meat and for better health and physical dairy performance .

The 7 foot 11 inches, 320-pound former NBA star was spotted at Slutty Vegan in Atlanta where he enjoyed lunch with Rip Micheals for the comedian’s new “Urban Eats & Treats” food and travel series, where the vegan tea was spilled.

In the film, Shaq confessed he loves that Slutty Vegan allows him to still eat all his favorite foods and look out for his body and health at the same time and that he’s trying his best to go vegan.

“My friend introduced me to this place [Sultty Vegan] And it’s healthy,” said Shaquille O’Neal in a part of the film. “For example, I like cheeseburgers, right. But the way she cooks it, I can eat healthyily, but still, feel like I’m eating bad.”

Shaq posts up at Slutty Vegan when he’s in the mood for a guilt-free version of the meals he used to scarf down after hours of running up and down the court. “Whenever I want to cheat, I come over here and cheat,” he said.

Before stepping into the plant-based zone, Shaq used to think a healthy diet consisted of chicken salad, steak, and fish, but now that he’s making moves to a vegan diet, he appreciates Slutty Vegan even more because the restaurant makes him feel like he’s eating junk food while still feeling lighter, more energized, and healthier than what he used to feel like before eating vegan.

Slutty Vegan is the innovative, fast food joint founded and operated by entrepreneur and local activist Pinky Cole, famous for piled high burgers with colloquial names like “One Night Stand,” “Super Slut,” and “Fussy Hussy.” The chain is rapidly expanding and is set to introduce a new location in Brooklyn, New York, which should open before this summer.
