Jennifer Lopez joins the vegan brigade

May 15th 2014 / Katie Robertson Google+ Katie Robertson / 1 comment


Veganism is becoming increasingly popular among A-list celebs, and J-Lo is the latest to jump on the bandwagon

J-Lo has become the most recent star to trade in steak for salad and adopt the newest and hippest ethical A-list trend - veganism.

Following in the footsteps of Mr and Mrs Carter, Lea Michele and Olivia Wilde, our favourite Latino lady has sworn off eating all animal produce permanently (not a poxy 22 days) and is encouraging others to do the same.

Just in case you’re playing catch up or have been living under a rock for the past ten years, a vegan is a strict vegetarian who adheres to a diet that cuts out meat, eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived ingredients altogether.

Speaking to New York radio station Z100, J-Lo said: 'Being vegan, it's basically no dairy, no meat, everything is plant-based and from the ground. Butter is the one thing I miss! You do feel better. I do recommend the vegan diet because you wake up and feel great!'

Well you look pretty smoking too J-Lo, always. If it takes backing off the bacon to look as hot as she does we think a vegan overhaul might be just what the doctor ordered - tofu isn’t that bad, right?

I have mixed feelings about everyone going vegan these days. I do believe that with professional guidance, it can be healthy; however, not everyone can afford it, and I see many vegans who have an extremely high carb diet, or consuming unhealthy amounts of soy products and other nuts. I was vegan for a year, while I was working for a nutritionist. Being vegan required a lot of work, actually....and reading labels, because a lot of vegan products have too much soy, gluten, or added fillers. People who follow diet fads because celebrities are doing it, might not have all the information. I think before someone goes vegan, they should have a very good understanding of their body, their hormone levels, their allergies, and what their bodies need, etc. This is why I really think before going vegan "permanently", people should see a dietitian or qualified nutritionist.
