Joe Rogan: So you were vegan for a while, how long have you been vegan for?
Mike Tyson: For a couple of years, 5 years
Joe: When did it stop?
Mike: I don’t know, but not too long ago. When I look at food I don’t look at it like I used to, I look at it for what it is for.
Joe : to take care of the body?
Mike: I realized that things that are good for other people like kale, vegetables and all this stuff, blueberry, etc. for me it’s really poisonous
These things are not good for my blood type, health condition..
Mike: Kale is toxic to my blood
Joe: so when you were vegan, what were you eating?
Mike: Oh man nothing!

He would take breaks from his vegan diet from time to time in restaurants with his family and friends.
