Venus Williams Adopts Veg Diet

After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, tennis star Venus Williams is trying a raw vegan diet.

Venus Williams is embarking on a raw vegan diet following her diagnosis with Sjogren’s Syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease, in 2011. British newspaper The Daily Mail reports that the “former steak lover” hopes that switching to a raw vegan diet will improve her health and help to ease the painful inflammation caused by the disease. The tennis player tells Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, “I did a lot of medical therapy and a serious evaluation of my diet to understand which foods help control the symptoms better … and that’s why I’ve completely changed my diet and filled it with a lot of vegetables.”
