Always liked this guy. Good to know that he's a vegetarian too. I only eat 2 meals a day. Vegetarian food seems to 'stay with me' longer than meat does. I'm sold. Mostly Vegetarian for 3 months.

I'm a huge Ricky fan! If anyone has any info on his diet I would be very interested in finding out. He has maintained an awesome build while consuming a vegan diet over the past number of years. He has been a huge influence in my decision to stop consuming animal meat and products. He is going to have an awesome year in 2008/2009 I'm very excited to see him.
