According to the National Post, Bill Clinton recently shed an impressive 24 pounds and is now proudly at the same weight that he was at in high school! After slimming down for his daughter Chelsea’s summer wedding, he is reportedly determined to keep the weight off. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Clinton said that the possibility of future grandchildren has inspired him to stay fit and healthy.
So what is the secret behind this former commander in chief’s newly trim waistline, enhanced energy, and improved cardiovascular health? A vegan diet!
“Since 1986, several hundred people who have tried, essentially, a plant-based diet—not ingesting any cholesterol from any source—have seen their bodies start to heal themselves; break up the arterial blockage, break up the calcium deposits around the heart. Eighty-two percent of people who have done this have had the result, so I want to see if I can be one of them.”
—President Bill Clinton, The Huffington Post
After undergoing two operations related to heart disease, it appears as if Clinton has finally decided that enough is enough. Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S.
Have you had enough, too?
If you’re ready to commit to improving your health by lowering your cholesterol and by reducing your risk of heart disease, please pledge to go vegan!
