Vegan Star Trek Star

Michael Dorn of Star Trek adopts vegan diet.

Actor Michael Dorn, most well-known for his role as Lt. Commander Worf on the popular science-fiction TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation, announced his veganism in an interview with Live Fit magazine. Dorn says that he became vegan about three years ago, and since then, he says he has not missed meat at all. A vegan diet, combined with regular exercise, helped him lose some 30 pounds. “It was easy to make the transition, because I feel so much better,” Dorn said. He also included that he enjoys veggie burgers when dressed up with vegetarian chili or mustard.
