Ozzy Osbourne Goes Vegan

The Godfather of Heavy Metal has decided to cut meat and dairy from his diet after seeing Forks Over Knives.

The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, has announced that he’s trying a vegan diet. He revealed his decision to cut meat and dairy from his meals on The Talk, a TV show co-hosted by his wife Sharon, on Tuesday. The 62-year-old says he was inspired by the documentary Forks Over Knives, the same film that inspired actor Russell Brand to adopt a vegan diet. Osbourne believes the diet will improve his health and says, “I feel better about myself, you know? That‘s the reason why I decided to cut out meat out and dairy because … when you‘re on the road and you're traveling, you grab buns and ... burgers are everywhere ... so now I’ve just narrowed the margin.”
