Bill Clinton: I Just Don't Miss Meat

In a recent interview, Clinton expressed his continued dedication to healthy eating and his support for the NY soda ban.

Former president Bill Clinton appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight last week and discussed his plant-based diet with entertainment mogul and guest host Harvey Weinstein. In the interview, Weinstein recollects a time when the two ate cheeseburgers together, then asks Clinton how he transitioned from meat lover to a more plant-based diet. Clinton cites his second heart surgery as a major wake-up call. “Getting rid of the dairy was great, getting rid of the meat … I just don’t miss it,” he shares. Additionally, Clinton reveals that he supports New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposed ban on large sodas and sugary drinks, iterating that America’s growing rates of obesity and other chronic diseases should concern government officials. In the interview, he states that he does still include some fish in his largely plant-based diet. Here's hoping Clinton soon nixes fish for good!
