American singer songwriter, musician, rapper and current coach on The Voice UK, will.i.am has lost 20 lbs after adopting a plant-based diet recently.
The 42-year-old founding member of The Black Eyed Peas was on The Graham Norton Show last night where Graham asked him, “Am I right in thinking there’s a lot less of will.i.am to love than previously?”
To which will.i.am replied, “Oh yes, so I lost like almost 20 lbs. I stopped eating…so like, if it has a face, I don’t taste it. If it has eyes, I don’t eat it. So I’m just plant-based. No dairy. No milk. Just plants.Just rabbits.”
“Rabbits?” said Norton, a little bit shocked.
“Rabbit food,” explained will.i.am, as the audience laughed.
And, although will.i.am is making being plant-based, or vegan, a little bit more simplistic than it is, as there is far more food you can eat on a vegan diet than just ‘rabbit food’, his experience on the diet is the same as most other people’s when they also go vegan.
In other words, when you go plant-based or vegan, you drop weight like you would not believe, yet you often end up eating larger quantities of food than you ever have.
