      LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The idea of an athlete eating a vegan diet may seem
      counterintuitive. But it's a trend that's becoming more popular. Athletes
      going vegan show how it's possible to get enough protein to perform.

      "No steak 'every now and then,' no ribs, no burgers, none of that," said
      Jacksonville Jaguars NFL player Montell Owens. Owens has become a so-called
      "clean eater" after watching friends and family experience health
      complications.

      "Many of the things that they were going through, they were preventable,"
      said Owens. "Culturally there needs to be a change, and why not start with
      myself?"

      And he's not alone. Mixed-martial-arts fighter Mac Danzig started down the
      road to vegan a decade ago, first for moral issues, but then he found he
      liked how well he performed with a plant program.
