Jennifer Lopez Joins The Ranks Of Celebrity Vegans. Should You Follow Suit?

This veganism thing is definitely starting to catch on...

Jennifer Lopez looks amazing in a sparkly catsuit. But if you’re thinking that body comes easy, think again.

She recently revealed that she maintains her enviable curves by following a strict vegan diet.

‘Being vegan, it’s basically no diary, no meat, everything is plant based and from the ground,’ she told New York radio station Z100. ‘Butter is the one thing I miss!’ 

The 44-year-old singer – who showed off her fit figure onstage at the Billboard Awards on Sunday night – added that she would encourage others to try the diet. ‘You do feel better. I do recommend the vegan diet because you wake up and feel great!’

Of course, J.Lo isn’t the first to eschew animal products and go the vegan route. There’s been a noticeable rise in veganism over the past few years – especially where the celebrity set is concerned. 

Veganism certainly has its health benefits – but should you jump on the bandwagon and give this lifestyle a try? Get the answers here.
