4 Sexy Celebs Who've Gone Plant-Based in 2018
When Zac Efron and Queen Bey are on board — you know plant-based living is no longer a niche. Chowing down on summer rolls, smoothie bowls, and zoodles is as mainstream as it gets these days, with some of the world’s hottest celebrities joining the vegan squad.
So in case you haven’t heard, here are four superstars who’ve recently made the lifestyle switch to a plant-strong diet. They’re all talking about the positive effects publicly — and showing the world that eating the rainbow is the hottest thing since sliced bread (topped with avocado, of course)!
In an interview with Teen Vogue, the actor dished that his doctor had diagnosed him with high blood pressure and cholesterol — so he made the leap to a plant-based diet! The 30-year-old is known for his hot bod (Baywatch, anyone?), but his previous dietary choices clearly weren’t agreeing with him. “It’s been brilliant,” he said of the lifestyle switch, and eating plants has changed his sleep, the way he metabolizes food, et al.
In prep for the ultimate in festival performances (Coachella, duh), Queen Bey has announced that she’s back on the vegan train. The singer is doing her 22 Days Nutrition plan to get stage-ready. “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!! Click the link in my bio to join me!” she posted on IG along with a photo of avocado toast (a woman after our own hearts). This isn’t her first rodeo; she and Jay-Z did a 22-day vegan diet in 2013, and trainer (and Seed talent/22 Days Nutrition co-founder) Marco Borges said they loved the experience.
Everyone’s favorite good guy rapper, Drake, recently revealed on the gaming site Twitch that he no longer eats meat. “I feel like chicken and pineapple on pizza could work, but I don’t eat meat anymore,” he quipped. In an IG post, he also hinted at his vegan status, saying: “If two vegans are angry at each other … is it beef?” Sources suggest that he may have been influenced by Beyonce and her Coachella prep.
William James Adam — of Black Eyed Peas and The Voice fame — became a member of the VGang in the new year. “I am tired of being pimped by food companies,” Adams said, “and then eating bad, poisonous food, and feeling bad in the morning … I don’t want to be diabetic and in and out of the hospital because I’m eating the pimp’s food.” His friends hit him with the usual: “How do you know a vegan is a vegan?” quip — and he responded: “Isn’t it funny that people [are] proud to represent the stupidest [expletive] like killing people, hurting people, and disrespecting women, but when it comes to representing eating right, you get laughed at." He adds that if you see him out and about in the world, tap him on the shoulder and say “V-gang!”
