Ken Spector on behalf of Ecorazzi and HappyCow caught up with Lance Bass at the Environmental Media Association Awards on October 19th and asked him about eating a plant-based diet. Last year at the very same event he told Ken that he was interested in trying out veganism, but sadly, the former ‘N Sync member confessed that his first attempt was a struggle for him.

“Well, you get invited to all these… dinner parties that you go to and you feel really guilty if you didn’t eat what the host gave you,” he explained.

But! Bass did say that he’s currently vegetarian since he went on a juice cleanse about a month ago and has yet to reintroduce meat into his diet. Then Spector dropped a little factoid that clearly blew Bass’s mind: if each American were not to eat meat for an entire day, it would save 100 billion gallons of water. You must watch this video clip to see Bass’s reaction!
