Bill Clinton Advocates for Vegan Diet on Ellen

The former president recommends an unprocessed plant-based diet for optimum cardiovascular health.

On Thursday, former president Bill Clinton appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he discussed his plant-based diet with the also-vegan host. The politician, whose White House food preferences famously revolved around meat and grease-laden foods, radically altered his diet after undergoing a quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2004, eventually going vegan. Though he acknowledges that adopting a vegan diet isn’t necessarily a cure-all for all conditions—he points out that eating processed carbohydrates can exacerbate heart problems—Clinton’s plant-based path has led him to be in the best shape of his life. “This is the third week in a row where I will weigh less than I did the day I finished high school,” he says.
