"I decided to go vegan after reading a book called The Beauty Detox Solution by Kimberly Snyder. It's about how our bodies are not meant to digest animal products and what we should be eating instead. It made a lot of sense to me. I've always had a pretty sensitive stomach, but when I cut animal products out of my diet, I felt so much better."
“I am loving it. I genuinely am. It’s been about two years. More energy, my face clears up, weight falls off" Ne-Yo said. He goes on to explain after watching the documentary What the Health “To put it frankly, it p***ed me off. It really did. I was like, let me get this straight: the person giving you the disease and the person fighting the disease are in bed together? To hell with y’all, Out of spite, I went vegan because I was like, Y’all don’t care."
“When I’m at the greatest odds with my body, it’s usually because I feel my body’s betraying me, whether that’s been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn’t eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn’t get my body to do what I wanted it to do. I find peace when I don’t see my body as my enemy, when I step back and have appreciation and look at all that my body has done for me. It’s allowed me to give birth to three beautiful children, allowed me to explore different roles as an actor, allowed me to be strong.”
“To deny an animal its right to self-determination, its right to live out its life as it chooses in its natural habitat, that is an aggression; it’s an aggression against the planet and all other sentient beings, start with one meal a day, then up it to one day a week, then one week a month. Work your way into not consuming animals and animal products and inform yourself. It doesn’t take anything at all, and it’s very easy to do. Then you start to think, ‘What else?’ This process begins your consciousness.”
