Meatless diets can achieve many goals, from brightening your complexion to boosting energy. Many of the vegetarians claimed that the dietary change had changed their lives. Maybe you can too. Here are the most inspiring celebrities who have cut meat and dairy from their diets to embrace a vegan diet.
1. Billie Eilish
Eilish was actually raised a vegetarian, but he’s a vegetarian because he loves animals and thinks we should leave them alone. And, according to Billie, she’s lactose intolerant, and “milk is terrible for my skin and my skin knows it.” Her mom recently launched Support + Feed, a program that donates plant-based food to frontline workers fighting Covid-19.
2. Ellie Goulding
This British pop star has always been a vegetarian, but only recently became a vegetarian. She explained that after understanding where the meat came from, she couldn’t bring herself to eat it. That coupled with a constant feeling of fatigue and lethargy made Ellie averse to meat.
3. Zac Efron
With Zac Efron’s cut boot, we’re not shocked that he’s gone vegan. By doing so he completely changes the way food is metabolized and “turns it into energy,” he said. Jack is a good case for an aesthetic approach to veganism.
4. Alicia Silverstone
Can you believe this? Ambiguous Can the cutie stop using her asthma inhaler and allergy medicine after going vegan? “I lost weight and got a new glow to my skin and hair,” said the actress, though she initially became a vegetarian for animal rights reasons.
5. Natalie Portman
Natalie’s small frame is thanks to “oatmeal or avocado toast in the morning.” The actress calls her diet “very clean” and says she gets B12 shots because that vitamin is so hard to come by as a vegan.
6. Ariana Grande
Why won’t the queen eat this horse’s meat? Because she loves animals “more than most people.” She also believes that moving towards a whole foods approach with her plant-based diet will help you live longer and be happier. We may disagree, but… cheese.

She doesn’t think it’s right to wear animals for the benefit of humans. He stopped wearing leather and started a vegan clothing line.
9. Taraji B Henson
In an interview Instyle, Taraji admitted that she went vegan after a doctor in Georgia told her she would get stomach cancer if she didn’t change her diet. After making the switch out of necessity, she realized she felt better as a vegetarian anyway.
In classic Madonna fashion, the pop icon follows a strict vegan macrobiotic diet. This means cold-pressed juices, whole grains like quinoa, vegetables and fruits. Some people don’t like it, but if you want to look like Madonna at 62, that’s what it takes!
11. Venus Williams
After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder that left her with joint pain and constant fatigue, Venus decided to go plant-based. Her sister did too.
