Ozzy Osbourne Trying a Vegan Diet to Get Healthy
Recently, we told you about Russell Brand and Katy Perry tweeting that they had watched the film Forks Over Knives, and Brand’s newfound veganism. Now, another celebrity has joined the club Forks Over Knives converts – the Prince of Darkness himself.
According to ContactMusic, Ozzy Osbourne is giving a vegan diet a try in order to get healthier. The rocker appeared on wife Sharon Osbourne‘s show The Talk and said “My assistant showed me a video called Forks and Knives (sic) or something, about (cutting out) meat and dairy products, so I thought, ‘I’ll give this a shot!'” Osbourne says he’s feeling good and hopes the diet will cause him to make better food choices while he’s touring. “I feel OK actually, I feel better about myself, you know? I go on binges… That’s the reason why I decided to cut out meat out and dairy because I’ve limited what I can have because when you’re on the road and you’re travelling, you grab buns and… burgers are everywhere… so now I’ve just narrowed the margin.”
If you’re wondering whether or not this will last (I know, it’s hard to forget about the bat), Ozzy isn’t sure either. He joked, “I’m not saying I’m gonna do it forever; I might go back – when my wife learns to cook, so that’ll be never!”
