Rosie O’Donnell Sees Benefits of Plant-Based Diet

The comedienne is sharing the ways her new diet is changing her life on an upcoming episode of The Dr. Oz Show.

After revealing in late August that she had turned to a plant-based diet following a heart attack, Rosie O’Donnell is sharing her healing success. The comedienne talked to People Magazine, revealing she’s lost 12 pounds and feels more energetic. “I had a really sedentary lifestyle and that’s deadly. It took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself … now I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life,” says O’Donnell. She also recently taped an interview with Dr. Oz in hopes of raising awareness of heart disease in women, detailing her new health transition with help from plant-based expert Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. The episode is set to air October 8.
