The man, the legend I am going to write about needs no introduction. Iron mike Tyson is a boxing legend and one of the most powerful and enigmatic personality to grace the sport of boxing. Tyson Became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion of the world at the age of 20 years and 4 months after defeating Trevor Berbick thus lead to the beginning of new era in boxing, the “Tyson mania”. One thing always about mike was he was always in shape for the fight. His work ethic and the kind of training he went through during his career are legendary. Once mike quit boxing he went on from a chiseled physique fighter to a guy who looked like had serious weight issues.
 Mike Tyson’s weight loss is a remarkable exhibition of will, now to lose that amount of weight and be back in shape takes two things dedication and great will. Mike began his transformation and weight loss program in 2009 by becoming a vegan. Vegan or veganism is a vegetarian diet that one follows to lose weight. Vegan term was coined by Donald Watson from England in 1944. Veganism diet excludes meat, eggs and dairy products also animal-derived ingredients. Well that leads us to a question what does their diet comprise? Their diet includes grains, beans, legumes, vegetables, tofu, seitan and fruits. The benefits of vegan diet are lower levels of obesity and helps bettering the cardiovascular conditioning, which is vital.

Mike is said to have lost more than hundred pounds during his weight lose transformation. Mike is said to follow a diet which had tomato basil soup and water for six months and with lots of cardio like walking and did turn vegan as well thus helping in losing all those extra pounds he had gained over a period of time. Now mike is back in shape and more importantly healthy.
