Quantcast Vegetarian StarHerschel Walker

“I don’t worry about protein. I don’t worry about all that. I’m from old school. I grew up in south Georgia. They didn’t worry about cholesterol or protein. They went out and worked and lived a long time, so I don’t put a lot of worries in my mind. I just get it done.”

Herschel Walker, former Heisman Trophy winner who’s decided to pursue a career in Mixed Martial Arts at the age of almost 50. A vegetarian, Walker told CNN he trains for 6-7 hours a day, waking up at 5:30 AM to do 750 to 1,500 push-ups and about 2,000 sit-ups.

We really don’t need as much protein as some meat eaters will try to convince us. Experts recommend about 0.8 grams of protein per 2.2 lbs. of body weight for men and women. And too much protein may put you at risk of disorders of the kidney, liver and/or osteoporosis.

Walker is training for his second MMA fight, which is scheduled to take place December 4th. Watch the video below to hear him discuss his new sport.

Carol Leifer Or Herschel Walker–Who Would You

Written by Vegetarian Star on Wednesday, March 24th, 2010 in Athletes-Games-Sports, Comedians, Reality TV.

Celebrity Apprentice hasn’t been too nice to vegetarians, as the potential CEOs have been given the “You’re Fired” order with neither a fruit basket nor a severance package.

This season comedian Carol Leifer was the first to go (but she did squeeze some money out of Donald for an animal charity), while Herschel Walker got the pink slip after he failed trying to make executive decisions about chicken when he doesn’t even eat it.

Better luck next time guys.

The Celebrity Apprentice candidates are dropping faster than the real hairs on Donald Trump’s head did before he put whatever creature of a hairpiece is currently living there now.

Heisman Trophy winner and former running back Herschel Walker is the latest to get the ax. 

The apprentices were given the task of creating a healthy frozen meal for a large company which produces frozen entrees. Herschel led his team with the idea of soy ginger chicken. But dude should never have advocated the chicken dish, given the fact that he’s vegetarian. And that’s probably why he paid the price.

The meal wasn’t exactly the most palatable. Anna Pickard at the Guardian, had a funny way of describing the ordeal:

“The orange helps a lot, and it’s presented: Asian Orange Chicken, quickly renamed to Orange Asian-style chicken when someone notices it’s not ACTUALLY Asian and has never had an Asian person remotely near it: and that something that sounds like ‘Agent Orange Chicken’ might not be a great selling point.”

Yes, Agent Orange, DNA mutating chicken is definitely bad for business.

Unfortunately, Trump was into turkey balls that night and no amount of Agent Orange could mutate him into saving Herschel.

Said Trump, “I love you. I love you Herschel. I love you. I’m not a gay man, but I love you. And you’re fired.”

When Herschel admitted he wasn’t a meat eater, Donald asked why he chose to be in charge of it. It was because that dreadful dog eating Joan Rivers pushed for it.
