Have you ever given thought to the many celebs who are vegan? Some celebs have been known to go on some crazy diets, but instead of some fad to lose weight, these celebs have chosen to go vegan. Some have done it for health reasons, some have done it for animal rights, and some have done it just because. Either way, they are all examples that going vegan is possible and easier than it seems. Here are 7 celebs who are vegan. Are your favorite vegan celebrities on my list? Let's have a look.
1. Woody Harrelson
After being told he was lactose intolerant, Woody Harrelson decided to become vegan. He has been vegan since he was 24 years old and has reported having more energy than when he was on a meat and dairy diet. He's one of my favorite celebs who are vegan.
2. Ellen DeGeneres
This popular talk show host and all around funny girl has been a vegan celebrity for quite some time. She had a tried a vegan diet when she was younger, but it only lasted a short while. With the help of her chef and her also-vegan wife, Portia de Rossi, DeGeneres finally made the permanent switch to plant-based diet.
3. Carrie Underwood
Similar to Woody Harrelson, Carrie Underwood decided to go vegan after learning she was lactose intolerant. While she has admitted she is only 95% vegan because sometimes she can’t resist cake, she has dedicated herself to a diet free of meat and dairy. That kind of honesty is also refreshing.
4. Mike Tyson
This buff boxer made the switch to a vegan diet about 3 years ago and reportedly lost 130 pounds while on it. He claims he is happier than when he was on a non-vegan diet. And he has reportedly said that becoming a vegan has changed his way of thinking and feeling. I was surprised when I learned Mike Tyson was one of the celebs who is vegan!
5. Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin chose to become vegan for his love of animals. He is actively involved in PETA and has been quoted saying, “Do it for the animals. Do it for the environment and for the sake of your own health." Definitely a philosophy to consider, don't you agree?
6. Lea Michele
Lea Michele is proof that a good book can change your life. This hot Glee celeb chose a vegan lifestyle after reading the book “Skinny Bitch.” She is now another vegan celebrity and has become actively involved in PETA, like Alec Baldwin.
7. Olivia Wilde
With the help of other actresses and a documentary showing her the health benefits of a vegan diet, this gorgeous celebrity went vegan too. She has said that she has felt more energetic and healthy and has even started her own website to support going vegan.
I was so surprised to learn that these actors and athletes are all vegan celebrities! Are you on a vegan diet? What inspired you to become vegan? Would any of these celebs inspire you to become vegan?
