Vegan 77-Year Old Body Builder - Jack Morris

Professional bodybuilder Jim Morris has the ripped, vascular physique that few men of any age can achieve, let alone a senior citizen. But Morris, 77, is proof that exercise and eating well are indeed the keys to the fountain of youth.

While most bodybuilders consume substantial amounts of chicken breast and other animal proteins daily, Jim is a longtime vegan who insists that a plant-free diet is responsible for his shockingly age-defying physique and superb overall health.

"Prior to becoming vegan I suffered digestive problems all my life," Morris told Frugivore. "I started taking anti-inflammatory medication in 1966 for my joints. At one point I was getting cortisone injections directly into both elbows every week. The arthritis kept me awake at night.

"I would get 2-3 colds yearly and allergy attacks as often. Since becoming vegan, all my health problems have completely disappeared. My yearly checkups are perfect."
