It's no secret that our on-screen stars tend to be health-conscious, but the choice to go vegan has a list of benefits that go beyond the waistline.
Comedian, actor, and director Kevin Smith is one star who was never part of the wellness-obsessed celebrity culture we're used to seeing. The 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' (2001) star had been overweight for most of his career, but when he suffered a massive heart attack at the age of 47, he made some drastic changes. His daughter Harley had been trying to encourage him to go vegan for years without success. After his life-changing health scare in 2018, he went to see a nutritionist and eventually decided to switch to a fully plant-based diet. He managed to stabilize his blood pressure and achieve a healthy weight through his new lifestyle and says he's feeling better than ever. He and his daughter even started their own podcast called 'Vegan Abattoir' where they answer questions from those who are curious about veganism.
