Russell Brand has been a vegetarian for a long time but he's just recently declared over Twitter that he's going full-on vegan.
"I'm now vegan, goodbye eggs, hello Ellen"
After his shout out to fellow vegan Ellen DeGeneres, he retweeted his wife, Katy Perry, who said:
"Me & the Mr. just watched "Forks Over Knives". You can get it on Netflix!"
Apparently the documentary was the turning point for Brand. It's basically about removing animal-based and processed foods from your diet to control diseases and ailments. The films official website reads:
"The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes.
Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments – while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed."
Sounds like a cool documentary. We wonder what Russell now knows that we don't…
