Former President Bill Clinton appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” where he and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres discussed Clinton’s accomplishments, one being turning into a vegan.

In regard to going vegan later in life and when you’re older, Clinton gave some words of wisdom.

“First it’s just a good thing to do. It’ll be healthier for you and you put less stress on your cardiovascular system. But, if you’re older and you’ve had heart problems like I did you can go vegan and still get in trouble,” he said.

He warns others to not eat too many white processed carbs, because carbs convert to sugar. It’s important to keep sugar levels down.

DeGeneres commented on Clinton’s weight loss and he revealed, “This is the third week in a row where I will weigh less than I did the day I finished high school.”

Clinton first went vegan in 2010 not only to lose weight, but to stay healthy, especially since his heart scare. Not only did he experience a heart attack, but in 2004 Clinton had quadruple bypass surgery and angioplasty.

“. . . [I] was taking in a lot of extra cholesterol without knowing if my body would produce enough of the enzyme to support it, and clearly it didn’t or I wouldn’t have had that blockage. So that’s when I made a decision to really change,” Clinton said in 2011 regarding the change in his eating habits.

The 42nd president also revealed his proudest accomplishments, since leaving office. One is his AIDS work through his William J. Clinton Foundation. They’ve drastically cut the cost of producing and delivering AIDS medicine. Be sure to watch the video below to see Clinton talk about his other greatest achievements and his continued successes.
