Actress and activist Fran Drescher has been interested in health for quite some time. As a uterine cancer survivor and the mind behind Cancer Shmancer, Drescher is quite focused on preventative care and keeping our bodies free from disease.

Perhaps that’s why it’s no shock the former “Nanny” has changed her diet. On “The Wendy Williams Show” Drescher gave up her secret for a trim figure, lots of energy and a clear complexion.

She said, “It was tough going, I wasn’t able to knock off that kind of weight in years. I just decided that I wasn’t feeling well… and I went to a bunch of doctors, and everybody had different prescriptions for all my symptoms and I just decided, ‘No more, I’m gonna do alternative. I’m gonna to switch up my act, eat differently, clean up my act.”

“And so I cut out alcohol… so that went, and I became gluten-free and vegan.”

How is the world reacting to the star’s new and improved self? She said, “I am getting a lot of compliments on my skin and how good I look and I really think it has to do with the no drinking. It (alcohol) dries your skin out a lot.”

It feels like more and more celebs are going vegan for their health. Just recently we discovered that Usher and Rosie O’Donnell went vegan. Before that, it was Michelle Pfeiffer. Then we have our old favorites like Bill Clinton, Alicia Silverstone and Toby McGuire. No matter how you slice it, it seems like the health conscious world is flirting with either moving completely to a plant based diet, or at the very least, cutting back on meat and dairy. Their bodies will thank them.
