It seems you can’t move for vegans in the celeb world at the moment. And Usher is the latest one to take on the extreme way of life and is urging his protégé Justin Bieber to do the same.
A source told RadarOnline that the singer is a convert, “Usher frequents a few vegan restaurants in New York City and not only loves the food, but feels like it’s the healthiest way to live.”
He’s also keen to show young Bieber how healthy living can benefit him.
The source added, "He’s desperate to get Bieber on the same health kick he is and thinks with all the touring and busy schedule he has, it would keep him energized.”
Usher is famed for his impressive abs and hopes that this new lifestyle will be beneficial for his long term health as he has a family history of heart disease.
Being vegan is a serious commitment as you only eat plant based food, giving up all products that come from an animal, including cheese, eggs and milk.
It means someone following the lifestyle mainly eats vegetables, grains, beans, seeds and nuts and practices a cruelty free way of life by not wearing animal products such as leather or using cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals.
