Bill Clinton Turns To Plant-Based Diet

Thu Sep 23, 2010 2:32 pm

Here's something unusual...

Bill Clinton turns to plant-based diet with almond milk smoothies; no dairy

"I went on essentially a plant-based diet. I live on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruits... I drink a protein supplement every morning, no dairy, I drink almond milk mixed in with fruit, and a protein powder."

"It changed my whole metabolism," Clinton says. "And I lost 24 pounds. And I got back to basically what I weighed in high school."

For someone who was probably treated to the best food in the world it sounds rather extreme. What do you think?

almond milk

That stuff is AWESOME. And this from a guy who has never touched soy milk because it sounds nasty. This is the kind I get: http://www.silkpurealmond.com

I've changed my diet over the last year and a half too, but not as radically. I rarely eat red meat, I haven't touched hamburgers, french fries and Coke (I thought I was addicted to it) in over a year, though I will have a Guarana here and there, but even less often than red meat. I watch saturated fats and sugar very closely and avoid refined carbs. Wouldn't say it's been easy, but definitely not as hard as I thought it would be. I didn't think this would have lasted anywhere near what it has already. .

The most organic bacon, grown in the most relaxing farm ever, is probably going to do just as good a job clogging your arteries as the cheap stuff.

ps: good on Clinton for taking care of his health.

Maybe extreme is what's called for. He's aged a hell of a lot in the past few years it looks like. The man has health issues.

For someone who probably shows calcifications in every major artery on MRI and has already had two or three heart procedures, I'd say it's probably warranted though the damage is pretty much done by the time one is 30-40, depending on genetics. He's probably been given a straight talking to by a physician and wants to stick around for grandkids.

Oh yea, in Arkansas it's biscuits and chicken fried steak in that bad sausage gravy.

Hillary apparently was already concerned about this as early as 1992, when they moved into the White House. The White House chef was instructed to cook healthy food and did things like buckwheat ravioli with non-fat ricotta (saw this on a special on the White House kitchen). His health problems were probably a combination of earlier poor habits combined with the incredibly high stress of the job. The move to a vegan or semi-vegan diet looks like a kind of detox.

When Clinton was still in charge, he was already on a protein separation diet which caused some perplexity among the staff of a small restaurant in Berlin where he, Albright, Chancellor Schröder and Minister Fischer (unexpectedly) showed up.
