It seems tennis star Venus Williams doesn’t consider herself a true vegan, and calls herself a “cheagan.”
According to SheKnows, Williams confessed she gives into temptation every once in a while and warns people food might just disappear from their plates.
“If it’s on your plate, I might get to cheat. If you’re sitting next to me, good luck. You turn your head once and your food might be gone. I think it’s pretty well known I’m a cheagan. I’m not perfect, but I try,” she said.
In 2011, Williams turned to the plant-based diet to help with her auto-immune disease, Sjorgren’s Syndrome, which causes chronic fatigue and full-body inflammation.
She hasn’t been shy about giving credit to veganism either and revealed that “definitely changing [her] diet has made a big difference.”
This isn’t the first time Williams has confessed mistakes regarding her diet and that the transition can be difficult at times. Even if she does cheat on occasion we’re happy to see that she’s trying and mainly living a vegan lifestyle.
In my opinion, and as someone who recently turned vegan, it can be hard to transition from well-known and favorite foods to a completely different eating regimen.
Let’s give it up to Williams for being honest and trying her hardest.
