Who is your Vegan Athlete of 2013? Nominations now open.
James Wilks is an English MMA professional who won UFC. He's a qualified instructor in a number of martial arts. James narrowly misses out on a full profile on this site because he occasionally eats honey, but is an enthusiastic supporter of a plant-based diet, which he adopted after researching nutrition and responding well to cutting out meat and dairy.
James' initial desire to change diet was to improve athletic performance, but he now is also motivated by ethical and environmental factors.
