Apparently President Bill Clinton has recently stated he is “experimenting” with a vegan diet. Experimenting? Come on Bill! This isn’t college when you and your male roommate happened to both be naked at the same time and you “experimented” with yourselves. If I can do it, so can you!
Although I am happy he has decided to try veganism, I’m worried he will quickly drop it once he gets his desired results. He said the predominant reason for starting the plant-based diet is health reasons. Since a vegan lifestyle has little if any cholesterol, it is the prime diet for a person who has had by-pass surgery. The only problem with this reasoning, is people get the results they want and drop veganism like a hot plate. Thus doing no long-term good for animals, or even yourself. Many people however, have started on a vegan diet for health reasons and were then turned on to the many ethical reasons, thus changing their view from it being a “diet” to a lifestyle.
Here’s hoping it’ll stick. I know you can do it Bill!
