Chaka Khan Goes Vegan, Boosts Health

Legendary songstress Chaka Khan has experienced improved health after adopting a plant-based diet.

In a new interview with the Huffington Post, singer Chaka Khan reveals that she went vegan after finding out that she had developed type-2 diabetes and high blood pressure. In addition to forgoing meat and dairy, Khan did a four-month fruit- and vegetable-juice fast and lost 60 pounds, returning to a healthier, svelter figure, which she showed off at last month’s American Idol finale. The diva, who no longer has to take medication for her high blood pressure, says that she was inspired to regain control of her health by the birth of her new baby granddaughter.
