It’s hard to imagine that the petite starlet ever suffered from weight issues, but upon the realization that she required a great deal of energy to portray Rachel Berry, she transitioned to a vegan diet and the rest as they say is history.
While her lean, healthy physique has always been enviable, the combination of regular physical activity and a diet free of dairy and meat enabled Lea to rock a sexy strapless maxi dress at last night’s event.
There was a point not too long ago when we were wondering if she was a fair-weather vegan, thanks to Asos magazine’s claim that she was planning to reintroduce fish into her macrobiotic vegan diet. However, Michelle recently told Stylelist.com, “My guilty pleasure used to be cheese but since I’ve become a vegan I’ve found that vegan desserts taste better than any regular dessert.” Judging from her latest interview and physical transformation, it seems to us like she’s still on board.
Broadway fans and Gleeks — take a moment to check out Lea performing “Don’t Rain On My Parade” at the 2010 Tony Awards a few months back. Amazing pipes!
