Justin Fields follows a high-protein, plant-based diet to stay fit.
NFL quarterback Justin Fields has identified as a vegetarian since trying the diet during the spring of 2020. Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic started, Fields told Insider, he and his family tried a vegetarian 28-day detox.
Fields, who was still in college at Ohio State at the time, stuck with the diet after the detox was over and carried his new lifestyle into his professional career as the Chicago Bears quarterback.
Now, he follows a high-protein diet. He shared what he eats in a day with Insider’s Gabby Landsverk: oats in the morning, chia seed snacks, plant0based chicken nuggets, and some shakes.
Fields said he hopes to someday open a plant-based pizza shop in Chicago.
