Arian Foster is vegan. Kinda. Sometimes.

The Houston Texans' running back announced the change in diet during the offseason, but he revealed Thursday that he still eats meat.

"I'm not in a cult," Foster told the Houston Chronicle. "Nothing's going to happen to me. I just wanted a piece of chicken. It wasn't like temptation. I felt like I could use one."

Foster's eating habits became a topic of conversation in regards to his heavy workload. He leads the NFL with 192 rushing attempts.

"I've been dabbling back and forth," Foster said. "I just like to eat healthy. The whole vegan thing, a lot of people are really interested in my food.

"I've had meat since I said I don't eat meat anymore, but I like to stay with the plant-based foods, but every now and then, I'll eat something."

Foster ranks No. 4 in the NFL with 770 rushing yards and a league-high 10 touchdowns. The diet, whatever it's called, hasn't been a problem.

Just don't call it vegan.
