Bill Clinton on Veg Diet

President Bill Clinton says he’s eating a plant-based diet to care for his heart.

In a recent interview with Willow Bay for The Huffington Post and Yahoo News, President Bill Clinton revealed that he has been following a plant-based diet. Clinton told Bay that he has lost nearly 20 pounds in an attempt to be healthy for his future grandchildren, and has done so through exercise and staying away from animal products. Clinton said that since 1986, 82 percent of people who have tried plant-based diets have seen their bodies “heal themselves,” from ailments such as arterial blockage. Clinton says he’d like to see if he could be one of those people, though he said he’ll need to stick with it for a few more months to know for sure.
