These Celebs Reveal Why They Decided to Go Vegan
A vegan lifestyle isn’t for everyone — but according to chef Gordon Ramsay and these other celebs, there is a reason behind their change in diet.
Celebs that have hopped on the vegan diet — and aren’t looking back
Shocked by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s decision to go vegan? You shouldn’t be. He’s one of many celebs that have adopted a vegan diet for a slew of reasons ranging from animal rights to luminous skin.
The singer became vegan because of her love for animals, as well as the health benefits. “…I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-round happier person,” Grande told The Mirror UK. “It is tricky dining out, but I just stick to what I know – veggies, fruit and salad – then when I get home I’ll have something else.”
The Oscar-winner credits the diet for her glowing skin. “Diet is a big part of it.,” she told InStyle. “I’m vegan, and I drink a lot of water. If I have dairy, I break out immediately. Her dedication to veganism runs deeper than glowing skin — she’s a vegan activist currently producing and narrating the upcoming doc Eating Animals. And yes, she lives in Paris and no, she still doesn’t eat croissants.
The dancer/actress has been vegan since watching a documentary as a kid, and decided not to touch meat again. “It just stuck. I feel good about it morally and physically,’ she told Women’s Health UK.
The actress says veganism makes her feel better overall. “[Being vegan] is not always easy and accessible,” she told Huffington Post. “But it’s a way of life and makes me as a person feel really good and physically look better. My skin was better, energy was better.”
The actress went vegan for the animals, but noticed her health struggles (acne, asthma and constipation) vanished when she adopted the diet. She’s written a book on veganism, The Kind Diet, and continues to be outspoken about the subject.
