The sunglasses are coming off. Pro poker player Danieal Negreanu is unapologetically transparent from his game strategy to his vegan diet. He’s won over $42 million in two decades of poker playing, and he’s not even close to folding. Daniel made the switch first to a vegetarian and eventually to a vegan diet in his early twenties when his casino lifestyle started to catch up with him. He claims the way he eats now gives him the focus and stamina to endure twelve to fourteen-hour games and multi-day tournaments. He also challenges others to shift their perspective about eating animals—why do we love dogs and eat cows? From psychology to poker strategy, Las Vegas eats to travel foods, this conversion is a delight.
