Go Rosie!

The comedian, artist, and philanthropist recently told People Magazine that she’s 12 pounds lighter ever since adopting a plant-based diet post-heart attack.

“I had a really sedentary lifestyle and that’s deadly,” she says. “It took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself… Now I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life.”

O’Donnell, 50, added that she used to feel tired and sluggish but now feels ”full, but lighter, and I have more energy.” For other vegans out there – sounds familiar, right?

As we mentioned yesterday, Rosie recently taped an interview with Dr. Oz that will focus on heart disease – a killer that claims the lives of more women than men. “233,00 a year. every 20 seconds a woman has a heart attack in america. 50% of deaths happen in the first hour,” she wrote on her blog.

The Dr. Oz episode airs October 8th.
