After Rosie O’Donnell’s recent health scare, it looks like she is making some serious changes to her diet; not only to better her health, but to transform her life for the future.

Last week, O’Donnell suffered a heart attack, but kept mum. She finally revealed the incident on Aug. 20 on her blog Rosie.com. She did not go to the hospital, but rather Googled “women’s heart attack symptoms” and followed information provided by a commercial.

On her blog she says, “i took some bayer aspirin/thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally.” After going to a cardiologist, she discovered her LAD (left anterior descending artery) was blocked 99 percent.

It seems O’Donnell is taking her heart attack seriously by switching to a plant-based diet. Here’s what she revealed on Twitter today, “nine days later – nine pounds lost – eating a plant based diet #likebillclinton pic.twitter.com/8ItILfpl. [sic]”

In the past, O’Donnell admitted to Dr. Oz about her closet eating, never working out and indulging in wine and diet ice cream. Well, that’s no more. Good for her!

It’s nice to see she is doing well and turning her health around.

    You go Rosie! I had a heart attack on July 9th and have started the plant-based diet. My cholesterol has come down a lot since then. We all need to learn more about what we put in our bodies.
