Boy George Lost Over 50 Pounds on Vegan Diet

English singer-songwriter Boy George recently confessed to the Daily Mirror that he keeps pictures of himself in his heavier days on his cell phone as a reminder of how far he has come – and to never go back there again.

“I could barely look at these a few years ago,” the 52-year-old admitted. “Now I look at them and just don’t recognize myself – it doesn’t seem like me at all.”

“But I keep them on my phone so I can show people. ‘This is the flattering me…and this is the unflattering me!’”

Following a 4-month stint in prison in 2009, Boy George turned his life around.

“After I came out of prison I lost about four stone in two years through a vegan diet and lots of exercise but I couldn’t get that final bit off,” he said. (For Americans, that’s roughly 56 pounds.)

“Then a friend told me about a nutritionist called Amelia Freer and she put me on a metabolic plan, so I’m avoiding sugar, glucose and processed food.”

George does treat himself from time to time, but not with burgers and greasy fries like before.

“Of course I can fall off the wagon…but now, for me, that’s having a Snickers bar.”

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
