Rosie O‘Donnell Now Following a Plant-Based Diet

The comedienne revealed on via Twitter that she is committed to a plant-based diet following her recent health scare.

After her recent heart attack, comedienne and former talk show-host Rosie O’Donnell took to her Twitter last Thursday to share her new commitment to a plant-based diet, tweeting “nine days later—nine pounds lost—eating a plant-based diet #likeBillClinton.” The outspoken comic is re-evaluating her eating habits after the health scare last week, sharing on her blog that instead of heading to the hospital, she simply searched “women’s heart attack symptoms” on the internet and followed instructions provided by an online commercial. After eventually visiting a cardiologist, O’Donnell learned her left anterior descending artery was 99-percent blocked. O’Donnell had previously admitted to Dr. Oz that she did not exercise, was a closet eater, and frequently indulged in wine and diet ice cream.
