Just ask Skinny Bitch author Rory Freeman — being vegan can help anybody lose a few extra pounds! Earlier this year Howard Stern’s sidekick Robin Quivers turned to a vegan diet to help shed 70 pounds. Robin gave New York Magazine a peak a what a week in her diet looked like. Here’s a sampling:

Saturday, April 5
I juice every morning and use nutritional supplements. I get green juices from Liquiteria, an organic juice bar on 11th and Second.

I juice most of the day. For lunch I’ll have another juice — usually of kale and romaine and apple and lemon, along with a green salad. I’ll add green peppers and cucumbers and mushrooms, sometimes tomatoes with a lot of baby greens. I don’t eat a lot of fruit, and I’m not a big fan of green beans, but I like green leafy vegetables like broccoli or asparagus.

Dinner will be grilled vegetables. Sometimes, I may be out to dinner and have a little pasta with vegetables or a risotto. I’ve gotten chefs to make me a risotto with olive oil instead of butter and cheese and then putting in some vegetables. I go to Per Se at least two, three, four times a year — I go out to Napa a lot, so I know them from the French laundry. They have a vegan tasting menu. You have to ask about it. Cru does an incredible job with a vegan tasting menu.

Sunday, April 6
I had the vegetable juice. Howard and I shared diet information years ago. We used to have the same diet for a long while, but I became a vegan in the summer. I have a Magic Bullet [blender] in my office, and I put in these nutritional powders containing wheat grass and alfalfa in my juices. [Other cast members] look at it and say, “I can’t imagine surviving on that or even wanting to.”

For lunch, pretty much the same — I had a fruit smoothie with berries and coconut water.
And I had grilled vegetables. I have a lot of people now coming up to me because I’ve changed drastically, saying, “What’s your secret?” When I tell them, they say, “Ugh, never mind.”

To see the rest of Robin’s week, skip on over to NYMag.com.
