Will.i.am Discusses the Health Benefits of Veganism [VIDEO]
Will.i.am was recently a guest on British panel show Loose Women, where the subject of his health came up.
The musician and The Voice judge stated:
“Last year was tough for me, when we filmed The Voice I wasn’t the healthiest. 2017 was ups and downs, so I kind of slipped…I weighed a whopping 210 pounds, my high blood pressure was high, I had high cholesterol and since then, starting in December, I changed what I eat. I have a plant-based diet, I work out.”
“My immune system was weak, I was eating like whatever I could eat just for energy, my sleeping patterns were off…and so I really had to get my life in check. My blood pressure came down without having to take medicine, my cholesterol came down without having to take medicine, my nasal drip has gone, both my nostrils are working – cause I always had one nostril that didn’t work…no more nasal drip, no more acid reflux. It’s the healthiest I’ve been in a very very long time.”
Since the change to his diet, will.i.am has also been promoting #VGANG on social media, and stated in a tweet:
“I was watching a whale recently and I noticed that animals shouldn’t be eaten…especially when there are plenty of plants (if you do the research) that will give you all that you need… Last time I checked…gorillas are strong as F*** and only eat leaves…
