Can you claim to be an environmentalist and still consume animal products? Seems like Ted Danson finally got the memo! The actor and passionate supporter of environmental causes seems to have become the latest celebrity to embrace a plant-based diet.
According to a report on ContactMusic.com, the former Cheers star has been vegan for the past six or so months in an effort to boost his energy to film his show “Crime Scene Investigation (CSI).”
The actor said, “I’ve found that eating vegan the last five or six months has really given me energy, I feel good and I look fabulous.”
Back in March 2011, Ted Danson admitted to Greg Dalton at the Climate One Conference that he had experimented with a variety of foodie labels, but was then a vegetarian who eats fish (i.e. a pescetarian). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exc5ok9Zmfk
Let’s hope the health benefits he’s experiencing this time around help him stick with this diet that’s also great for the planet and animals!
