That’s changing quickly. A growing group of celebrity men are vegetarian. Tobey Maguire from Spider-Man. Orlando Bloom, the star of Pirates of the Caribbean. Brad Pitt of Angelina Jolie fame. Bob Harper, the trainer on The Biggest Loser.
More and more everyday men, especially men in their 40s and 50s, are becoming vegetarian too. They are giving up meat for a variety of reasons including to lose weight, look better, feel better, and live longer. (It probably doesn’t hurt that vegetarians appear to have fewer issues with ED, too.)
The notion that eating vegetarian is macho and mainstream is being spurred on by books like The Engine 2 Diet. It outlines a vegetarian eating plan created by a Texas firefighter to help his firehouse crew lower their cholesterol and lose weight.
