Veganism is when someone seeks to exclude all animal products from their diet, clothing, cosmetics, etc. Vegetarians are people who do not eat meat or fish. Recently a lot of celebrities have been quite vocal about embracing the vegan lifestyle and enjoying immensely. But a lot of the stars tried out that lifestyle and realized it wasn’t for them.
1) Liam Hemsworth
Unsurprisingly Liam Hemsworth had tried his hand at being a vegan. However, the actor stopped being a vegan after he was diagnosed with a kidney stone in 2019.
2) Chris Hemsworth
Following his brother’s footsteps, Chris Hemsworth was also vegan for a while. But in 2019, he revealed that he isn’t vegan anymore. Initially, he went on a vegan diet due to his rigorous training regime for various movies.
3) Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen DeGeneres was a vegan for eight long years before giving up on the lifestyle. When asked about the reasoning behind her decision, she said she started craving eggs and fish and therefore decided it was just the right time for her to let go of veganism.
4) Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell shared that she stopped being vegan when she became pregnant with her first child. Instead, she opted to change into a vegetarian and since then has remained one.
The actress said that she felt like she needed more calories and hence the change in her diet. However, she doesn’t consume meat and only eats responsibly sourced eggs and dairy.
5) Zooey Deschanel
The actress simply had to let go of the vegan lifestyle. She is, unfortunately, allergic to wheat.
6) Waka Flocka Flame
Waka Flocka Flame had gone vegan in 2014 in an attempt to get healthier. However, he wasn’t okay with the labels “vegan” and “plant-based” and, as a result, let go of that lifestyle. According to him, people fear vegans. Now he’s a pescatarian. Pescatarians are those who include fish in their diets but forgo eating any meat.
7) Derek Hough
According to sources, Derek Hough’s vegan lifestyle lasted for a few mere weeks. He said that while initially, it was a positive experience, he soon began to crave meat.
8) Jonathan Van Ness
A chat with Jonathan Van Ness revealed that he had an intense craving for garlic-butter clams after almost four years of being a vegan. This craving made him give up on being a vegan.
9) Laverne Cox
After four months of trying out veganism, Cox discovered that she was allergic to soy, which made the prospect of finding suitable food difficult. So she converted into a pescatarian like Waka Flocka Flame.
10) Anne Hathaway
The actress was content being a vegan till she tried some fish, and it completely changed her perspective. She felt like her brain had rebooted, and she felt much better. Now, she includes dairy, meat, eggs, and fish in her diet.
