David ‘The 300 Pound Vegan’ Carter To Speak At Penn State

David Carter, a former NFL player and current 300 pound vegan, will visit Penn State on March 14 to speak about his transition to a healthier lifestyle. Sponsored by The Vegetarian Club, his talk will take place in102 Thomas at 7 p.m.

After playing college football at UCLA, Carter played three seasons in the NFL with the Cardinals and Cowboys, never really breaking out of a backup role. He started his herbivorous journey near the end of his career when he woke up with a numb arm before some off-season practices. It was a wake up call and he felt that he could step up his health. Carter decided to start being a vegan on Valentine’s Day as a gift to his wife, a gift she said was the best valentine’s present ever.

These days Carter travels around the country sharing his story and the benefits of veganism for your health, the environment, and animals. His talk in Thomas will touch on all of this and more. The event is open and free to the public, with no ticket required.
