Jim Morris is a bodybuilding icon who, at the age of 77, is more ripped, stronger and healthier than ever.

He's a former Mr. New York, Mr. California, Mr. America and Mr. Universe, and he won the Mr. Olympia title in the over-60 division.

At age of 50, he became a vegetarian, slowly transitioning to a completely vegan diet. PETA just asked him to be a poster boy for a vegan diet.

He tells us how he learned to listen to his body and feed it what it needs and why he's never been starving on a vegan diet.  

Jim has been smashing stereotypes throughout his entire life -- he competed at a time when people said it was impossible for a black man to win bodybuilding titles; he's been openly gay for years and now he's proving a lifestyle without animal products can still result in a healthy, strong body -- at any age. 

He explains why he thinks age is your friend and how it's helped him get into better shape.

    I used to work out in the same gym in NY with Jim prior to his becoming the first black Mr. America.  An amazing guy!
