Celebrity Vegetarianism and Speaking for PETA

More celebrities are giving up meat, and are feeling great for it.
Jennifer Lopez is following in Beyonce and Jay-Z’s footsteps and has become a vegan, a stance that, unlike Beyonce’s 22 week stint at the end of last year, seems to be a more long term change.
Lopez champions the no meat and no dairy diet, claiming that “You do feel better. I do recommend the vegan diet because you wake up and feel great!
“Being vegan, it’s basically no dairy and no meat, everything is plant based and from the ground. Butter is the one thing I miss” she explains.
She is not alone with dispelling meat from her diet. Phil Neville, coach of Manchester United who may soon be facing the sack, has come out about his vegetarianism. In a video hosted on the Youtube channel of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) he explains how he was convinced by his wife to swap from his usual protein rich meal.
“I used to always think as a footballer, as a sportsman, it was so important for me to eat meat, to have that in my diet. I thought if I became a vegetarian that would take away a lot of the nutrients I needed as an athlete.”
He tried the new diet, and found that there are plenty of ways to get the protein you need without resorting to meat. He says “it has made me feel better, made me feel healthy” and is promoting an animal free diet, from both a personal health perspective, and also to cut down on the huge amount of animals that are killed every year for meat.
Vegetarianism has long been one of those major diet choices that divide people, but the only way to know for sure if it is for you or not would be to give it a try.
