Bill Clinton has gone vegan - no meat, no dairy, no eggs or even oil

August 20, 2011 - London

Bill Clinton has gone vegan in order to reverse the harm that his health has undergone due to the regular consumption of junk food during his working days.

The former U.S. President has revealed that now he consumes no meat, dairy or eggs and almost no oil, and instead takes fruits and vegetables and it makes him feel healthier than he ever felt.

Clinton, 65, said he now aims to get his weight reduced to 185lbs, what it was when he was 13 years old.

"I like the vegetables, the fruits, the beans, the stuff I eat now," the Daily Mail quoted him as telling CNN.

"It's turning a ship around before it hits the iceberg, but I think we're beginning to turn it around," he stated.

Clinton also revealed that he realised he had been playing 'Russian Roulette' with his body, as despite having cut down on some unhealthy foods, he was still taking in too much cholesterol.

"So that's when I made a decision to really change," he said.

"All my blood tests are good, and my vital signs are good, and I feel good, and I also have, believe it or not, more energy," he added.
