Jennifer Lopez has joined fellow A-listers like Anne Hathaway and Joaquin Phoenix and adopted a vegan diet!

The 44-year-old actress and recording artist has always been incredibly health conscious, but recently revealed that removing animal products from her diet has left her feeling better than ever and she would encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. In an interview with New York radio station Z100 Lopez said, “You do feel better. I do recommend the vegan diet because you wake up and feel great!”

J.Lo briefly attempted to adhere to a vegetarian lifestyle several years ago, but in an effort to stay healthy and fit, she has now chosen to avoid all animal products. Lopez explained, “Being vegan, it’s basically no diary, no meat, everything is plant based and from the ground.” “Jenny from the Block” has certainly come a long way since she gave vegan television host Ellen DeGeneres a year’s supply of Omaha Steaks.

Lopez did admit to struggling a bit on her new diet, saying, “Butter is the one thing I miss!”

Luckily for Ms. Lopez, there’s Earth Balance! Or, for a healthier alternative, coconut oil tastes fabulous on toast.

    i did not even know she adopted a vegan diet. that is so great and even better is that she stayed and promotes it.

    Vegan is not just a diet, it’s a lifestyle. Hopefully she’s going to stop wearing fur and leather too!

      she never once refered to “veganism” or “vegan”, but ” a vegan diet”. the post is JUST about her dietary choices. so stop being so negative. nothing happens overnight.
      you and all those people who thumbed up your comment should take notes from this video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skuRRbsr18I

    This is great news! I was praying for years that this could happen! Since JLo embraced buddhism things are changed! I saw that she is also much into faux-fur now! This is the way to go, JLo – courage, do not abandon your healthy and above all ethical life style! I stay behind you and I’m there, praying, you are not alone!

    This is not portraying veganism in a correct light, as it is not a diet; the diet is one aspect of vegan living. Veganism, since its inception in 1944 in the U.K., has always been about non-participation in animal exploitation. So glad that she feels better on a plant-based diet, which most people who turn to vegan living – do feel better. How good can it make you feel to eat a corpse or to consume milk that was stolen from a calf – who gets murdered so you can drink milk meant for calves by nature? Really, we’re all lactose intolerant, because it is not meant for our bodies, it’s meant to grow a baby calf into a 1,000 pound cow in less than a year. But what we should be most intolerant about is the absolute cruelty and violence that takes place in dairy production.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
