Worlds Strongest Man Is a Vegan !?!

Someone asked the Worlds Strongest Man: How can you be strong as an ox without eating meat?

Patrik: Have you ever seen an ox eating meat?

Worlds Strongest Man-Patrik Baboumian: A Glance

Patrik is a strongman born in Iran to Armenian parents. He moved to Germany with his mother and grandma. Patrik is currently living in Germany. He developed interest in strength and weight training at a very tender age.
Patrik was very sensitive and compassionate as a child as well.

He sheltered hedgehogs in the winter and saved dying tadpole. Patrik had a lot of compassion for animals and was into bodybuilding as well. As per conventional bodybuilding diets, he ate lots of meat. This created a sense of contradiction in him.
He didn’t want to eat other animals while trying to save some.

One day he made up his mind and gave up meat at the age of 26 in 2005. People warned him against it. Because the kind of profession he chose for himself, people could not see him doing well without meat but he didn’t listen and took that chance anyway.

Then with growing awareness of animal suffering and cruelty, he finally became vegan in 2011 and gave up all animal products.

He says that it allowed him to eat less and more efficiently. As per Baboumian, giving up animal protein made his metabolism more efficient and his performance also improved, inching him closer to become “Worlds Strongest Man”.

World Records?

He made two big world records after becoming vegan.

Patrik contradictory to his appearance is a gentle soul, who won’t even hurt an ant.

“Strength must build-up, not destroy. It should outdo itself, not others who are weaker. Used without responsibility, it causes nothing but harm and death. I can lift the heaviest weights, but I can not take the responsibility off my shoulders.

Because the way we use our strength defines our fate. What traces will I leave on my path into the future? Do we really have to kill in order to live? My true strength lies in not seeing weakness as a weakness. My strength needs no victims. Compassion is my strength.”
