James Cameron's Vegan Diet Gives Him 'Tons of Energy'
Director James Cameron might be “the king of the world” when it comes to his cinematic hits, but it’s his vegan diet that is giving him a new lease on life.
Promoting his latest innovative endeavor, the documentary, “Deepsea Challenge 3D,” the brilliant mind behind the mega-hit movies, “Titanic,” and “Avatar,'” told the Sydney Morning Herald that switching to a plant-based diet completely changed his life.
“I feel good about it,’’ he told the Herald about his upcoming sixtieth birthday. ‘‘If you’d asked me when I was 30, I would have thought, ‘Your life’s over. Just get in the box, get on with it’. But I went 100 percent plant-based – vegan – two-and-a-half years ago. I’ve got tons of energy. I’m fitter now. I’m running farther than I did when I was in my twenties. So I’m good to go.”
Cameron will need all the energy that a plant-based diet can give him. In addition to promoting his real-life underwater adventure (yes, Cameron risked his own life by shooting the ocean’s floor in a tiny submarine), the former truck driver is planning the next three ‘Avatar’ sequels, with target dates of Christmas 2016, 2017 and 2018.
