New Information about NFL’s Tony Gonzalez

Thanks to one of our sustaining members, Barbara A. Holdeman, who is a Certified Nutrition Consultant and Natural Health Educator, we learned that NFL's Tony Gonzales is not a vegan or vegetarian as the article published on the Take Heart! issue on Feb 12 implied (The 247 lb. vegan).

As follows you'll find the correspondence of Ms. Holdeman and the writer of the article, Mr. Albergotti:

"I appreciated your story about Kansas City Chief's Tony Gonzales. One thing I found disconcerting is that he is being called a vegan. Tony is not on a vegan diet as he is consuming fish and other animal products (in a protein supplement). Vegans do not consume animal products including fish, chicken, eggs or products made with any of these items. I worry that the term vegan is not being represented correctly and therefore meat eaters that are eating health foods will call themselves vegan."

"Thanks for reading, and for your thoughts. Tony Gonzalez attempted a vegan diet, but he and his nutritionist decided eating some meat was the best thing for his performance. It was not our intention to imply that Mr. Gonzalez currently eats no animal products. Again, I really do appreciate you taking the time to write."

Thanks and all the best,
