Bob Harper Goes Vegetarian, Drops 100 Cholesterol Points

The Biggest Loser coach Bob Harper has officially announced he’s a vegetarian!

In the September ’09 issue of Vegetarian Times, Harper explains his motivation for doing so, which included reading Rory Freedman’s vegan diet and fitness book,  Skinny Bitch .

Bob said he tries to convince contestants on the reality TV show to eat as much plant based foods as possible during the weight loss competition.

I always bring up the option of a vegetable-based diet, which I call Diet A, and talk about the many easy ways to get protein, such as from beans, tofu, broccoli, and quinoa. For the contestants who insists they need their meat, I have Diet B, which is still very heavy on veggies.”

Bob said after going veg, his cholesterol dropped by 100 points!

Now, that’s a loser everyone can be proud of!

Pick up the latest issue of Vegetarian Times on the stands to read the entire Q & A with Bob.
