Daniel Bryan Ricky Williams–Who Would You

Written by Vegetarian Star on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010 in Athletes-Games-Sports, Polls/Surveys, Who Would You.

WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan and Miami Dolphins football player Ricky Williams have made headlines this week, for in the ring and off the field performances.

Vegan Bryan recently won the U.S. WWE Wrestling competition while Ricky has been asked to endorse a set of health and fitness equipment.

So nice to see the stereotype of scrawny, vegetarian men get broken. As you can see from their pictures, neither is lacking in meat on their bones, although you’ll find it missing in their diets. Between the two athletes, who would you rather…

Ricky Williams

Miami Dolphins Ricky Williams is now an owner of a restaurant in the Z Ocean Hotel on Miami Beach’s Ocean Drive, PROOF.

Given the fact PROOF is co-owned, Ricky had to compromise on the menu to please his meat eating business partner, former NFL player Rudi Johnson.

But he made sure a “beefy” athlete like himself had plenty of vegetarian items to dine on that didn’t include the salad bar.

“I have to order sides because I’m a vegetarian,” Williams said. “Now I can order entrees.”

Those entrees include the “Ricky’s Picks” selections of margarita pizza, black bean burger, rice noodles and tofu and mushroom and assorted vegetables risotto.

PROOF opened with an invitation only party on November 17 and has been branded the “hip new tasty, yet health conscious restaurant and lounge.”

PROOF is located at 1458 Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, Florida.

Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams knows even with being a vegetarian, your body can’t play professional football forever.

That’s why he plans to become a doctor of osteopathic medicine, according to palmbeachpost.com.

Wowsers!

Athletic, intelligent, and vegetarian?

What’s his marital status again?

The cool thing about osteopathic medicine is that it takes a holistic approach to being healthy, versus relying on medicine to treat ailments.

The eight main principles of the discipline are as follows:

1. The body is a unit.
2. Structure and function are reciprocally inter-related.
3. The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms.
4. The body has the inherent capacity to defend and repair itself.
5. When the normal adaptability is disrupted, or when environmental changes overcome the body’s capacity for self maintenance, disease may ensue.
6. The movement of body fluids is essential to the maintenance of health.
7. The nerves play a crucial part in controlling the fluids of the body.
8. There are somatic components to disease that are not only manifestations of disease, but also are factors that contribute to maintenance of the disease state.

We are really liking number #4 and we hope Ricky teaches his patients the best way to use their body to defend and repair themselves is by choosing a veg diet, which can help prevent dozens of diseases, including the big killers of diabetes, heart disease, abdominal obesity, and cancer.

Can we get a Dr. Ricky Williams in the house as soon as possible?
