Hayden Panettiere Explains Why She Ditched Her Vegetarian Diet
Actress Hayden Panettiere apparently tried vegetarianism, but couldn’t keep up the diet because she felt too tired.
She told Self Magazine, “I tried vegetarianism, but my body didn’t respond well… I used to run an hour every day… (but) my body shut down. I was low-energy… Now I make egg-white scrambles with veggies for breakfast. For lunch, I have chicken or fish and greens, which are good for keeping your system working. I’m a fan of sushi for dinner, as long as the fish aren’t endangered… I can’t be full on a salad.”
Perhaps she should talk to these ten Olympians who thrive while competing on the world’s stage without meat. This notion that vegetarians just eat salad is a frustrating one to anyone who actually follows the diet. And yet, that misconception is still a popular myth.
If Ms. Panettiere tries vegetarianism again, and we hope she does, she should hire a veg chef for the first week or two to show her that a well balanced vegetarian diet involves a lot more than just eating salad.
