Bill Clinton a Vegetarian
Former President Bill Clinton has become a vegetarian and now weighs again what he did in high school, and was recently named PETA's 2010 Person of the Year.
With a history of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and quadruple bypass surgery (CABG), followed by two coronary artery stents (PCI) last winter, Mr. Clinton changed his lifestyle completely once he realized "I didn't want it to happen again." By eliminating meat and dairy products, but still eating fish occasionally, he again looks looking as slim and statesmanlike as in the beginning of his career.
Because he uses his influence to promote the benefits of following a vegan diet, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) named Bill Clinton its 2010 Person of the Year. PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 2 million members and supporters.
Studies have proved that vegetarians and vegans live, on average, six to 10 years longer than meat-eaters. One reason why President Clinton took a step toward going vegan is that he wanted to make sure that he would be around to enjoy his future grandchildren now that his daughter, Chelsea, is married. Since then, Clinton says that his metabolism has improved, and he now weighs as much as he did in high school—so he's definitely on the right track. "I live on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruit," he said. "I drink a protein supplement every morning. No dairy."
