The former United States President Bill Clinton is back in news, and this time surprisingly there are no controversies involved. Clinton, who recently turned 65, said that he is a vegan now, and has made peace with non vegetarian food. Clinton told CNN “I like the vegetables, the fruits, the beans, stuff I eat now”

If you are wondering how a die-hard junk food lover turned into a vegan suddenly, there are no surprises here as health has been a major issue in Clinton’s life. He had experienced periodical heart problems which lead to a Quadruple Bypass surgery in 2004. This brought about a drastic change in Clinton’s lifestyle. The Ex-President, not only has lost 20 pounds, but also seems to be feeling good and more energetic.

It’s hard to believe that he is the same person who was known to crave for barbeque food, and also visited McDonald’s every now and then. Clinton said no to meat, eggs, dairy and almost all oily and fat laden dishes now.

Bill Clinton joins the long list of celebrities that have turned vegetarian, which include Alicia Silverstone, Mike Tyson, and Robin Williams, to name a few

I hope Clinton’s attempt to live a healthy lifestyle works in his favor. In a way it’s good that he is creating awareness amongst his supporters about the benefits of a vegan diet.
