HOUSTON Houston Texans running back Arian Foster says he s no longer a vegan.

Foster was asked how the vegan thing was going Thursday , and he sheepishly admitted he s strayed from the strict diet.

Ah, I ve been, ah I ve been dabbling back and forth, but I just like to eat healthy, Foster said. I ve had meat since I said I don t eat meat anymore.

Foster said he still eats healthy, but enjoys chicken every now and then.

I just wanted some food. I m not, like, in a cult, Foster laughed. Nothing s going to happen to me. I just wanted a piece of chicken.

Foster had Texans fans worried when he announced before the season that he was giving up all animal products. But his performance on the field never appeared to suffer.

You know you re a star when your diet makes the 5 o clock news.
