  • Maggie Q on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#20) Maggie Q

    • 36

    Maggie Q uses her celebrity and social media to be an advocate for animal rights and to help nonprofit animal organizations. The Nikita star has been a vegan for over 20 years.

    While attending a concert, the actress was approached by a PETA employee who made her aware of how animals were mistreated in the entertainment industry. It was a lesson that Q would take to heart. She talked about her shift to a vegan lifestyle in 2017: 

    I transitioned to a plant-based diet about 19 years ago while living in Hong Kong. I attended a concert, and a PETA Asia employee was tabling outside of the show. I was watching her, and it didn’t seem anyone was paying much attention to what she was offering. It made me feel bad for her, so I walked over. We connected, and she sent me information on animal-welfare in the fashion, food, and entertainment industries. It made me sick, but nothing prepared me for the truth of the environmental impact of meat production. I quit cold turkey and never looked back. I didn’t understand how I could have ever claimed to love animals but hadn’t made the choices to protect them.

  • Ellen Pompeo on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    Ellen Pompeo has played famed surgeon Dr. Meredith Grey on the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy since 2005. In 2018, it was her own doctor who inspired the actress to adopt a vegan diet in order to help prevent breast cancer. During a routine health check, Dr. Kristi Funk told Pompeo about her book Breasts: The Owner's Manual. The read inspired the actress to become vegan and to also turn her husband and three children onto a plant-based diet. 

    The dietary change turned out to be an easier transition than she originally expected. Pompeo explains:

    It’s super fun. I don’t think it’s tricky at all - it’s actually easier because meat you have to cook it before it goes bad. Grains and lentils and rice and beans, everything’s in the pantry already. You just have to get vegetables, but vegetables stay good for a week - and I think we all feel better.

  • Zac Efron on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#11) Zac Efron

    • 31

    Zac Efron sees his imperfections, even if the rest of the world does not. In order to keep his matinee idol looks and chiseled abs, Efron decided to experiment with a plant-based diet. The result of the dietary transition has been life-changing for the leading man:

    Just like everyone else, I wake up, look in the mirror, and I see the imperfections and the bags under my eyes, and think, "Oh, man, is this really the best I've ever looked? I'm getting older? What the heck?" Recently what I've started doing is searching for the cure inside that's causing the symptoms of what I'm getting on the outside. Getting more sleep has really taken away the bags under my eyes, so I don't need to worry about it as much. There are other lifestyle changes - I've been experimenting with eating purely vegan. That's completely changed the way that my body works, and the way that I metabolize food, the way it turns into energy, the way that I sleep. It's been brilliant. It’s been great for my exercise, and great for my routine.

  • Portia de Rossi on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#15) Portia de Rossi

    • 46

    Portia de Rossi always considered herself an animal lover. However, she did not place all animals on the same level. The actress and her wife Ellen DeGeneres moved to a farm in California, which was home to several cows and calves.

    After the couple adopted a horse, de Rossi noticed how the cows interacted with it: 

    The cows formed a single-file line, and one by one they touched noses with the new horse as a greeting. The calves wouldn't approach on their own, so one of the cows nudged them forward. Each of the babies touched the horse's nose, then jumped around and played like little children.

    The interaction between the animals was an emotional one for de Rossi:

    I started crying and thought, I can't possibly keep eating these animals. Before that moment, I wouldn't have fathomed cows doing something like that. I was forced to confront the fact that I had chosen to remain ignorant of their nature because it was just easier that way.

    Over the course of the next year, the Arrested Development star went completely vegan. She said she no longer craves cheese or meat and feels happier:

    Before that morning on the farm, I ranked an animal's value based on how "human" it was. Now I don't judge other beings that way - every animal has its own intelligence and sensitivities. They're all lovely, worthwhile, and deserving of our respect.

  • Jason Mraz on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#7) Jason Mraz

    Jason Mraz initially went vegan to help out his friend who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and also went almost entirely raw. He admits to eating raw foods about 75% of the time, but will occasionally treat himself to soup or roasted vegetables.

    The "I'm Yours" singer just wanted to make his friend's dietary transition easiser for him, but wound up loving the vegan lifestyle:

    A guy in my band found out that he had type 2 diabetes and felt that the only way he could help himself was to go raw. I did it as a partner for him so it would be a little easier. In the meantime, I got hooked. It was so easy to make the world's most delicious salads. We had a raw food chef on the road with us for a month who turned us on to making our own hummus and cheeses and a bunch of alternatives to dairy, bread, and sugar. Once you kick sugar, you won't want it, because there are so many other sweet things to eat. Raw desserts? Forget about it!

  • Emily Deschanel on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#19) Emily Deschanel

    • 42

    Emily Deschanel lives a totally vegan lifestyle, and she says her husband and two kids are 99% vegan as well (they do occasionally eat eggs). The Bones star is a strong proponent of the idea that when people eat vegetarian and vegan, it dramatically helps the environment and can even save the planet. The actress became vegan as a child after visiting the Farm Sanctuary in New York and saw that all of the animals had their own unique personality. She explained: 

    Everything started when I decided to become vegan 22 years ago after visiting their sanctuary in New York. It was life-changing to see animals growing up in a healthy environment. I like to take Henry [Deschanel's son] so that he can experience these animals and see that they have their own personalities - even the chickens! It’s very eye-opening to go there because they also do a great job of educating about the dangers of factory farms and where our food comes from.

There are several reasons for VEGETARIANISM: 1. Religious claims or vegetarian expressions of loyalty to religious denominations, ascetic forms of which are most common; 2. Purely for bodybuilding, weight loss, exercise, and so on, this is mostly freestyle. 3. For the mercy of the heart, one can not bear the animal because of their own appetite and was killed.
