Where does India's freestyle wrestler, who won a silver medal at the London Olympics 2012, get so much energy from?

In one of his interviews, he'd said, "Look at me, I defeated non-vegetarians from America and Kazakhstan in the Olympics. So, you can see that vegetarians have a lot of strength."

It's been 26 years since our favourite 'Spidey' has been a vegetarian.

In fact, he has bulked up those muscles with plant-based proteins like tofu, protein powder and beans.

In 2011, he even rejected a Mercedes car with leather seats.

Now that's some kind of serious commitment.
