Brother Bill Clinton gives up the BBQ!

Can you believe it?  Bill Clinton’s now vegan!

Well after 2 heart operations, he figured it was time for a change.  Plus, he wanted to look good for Chelsea’s wedding (sound familiar, ladies?)

Check out this video we posted of President Clinton a few months ago.  BTW, “Iron” Mike Tyson lost 100 lbs being vegan, too.

Now the NY Times reports:

Bill Clinton’s Vegan Journey

Casey Kelbaugh

After undergoing two separate heart procedures since leaving office a decade ago, former President Bill Clinton changed his diet to slow the progression of heart disease. But when a doctor told him that more “intensive changes” were needed for someone with his family history of heart disease, Mr. Clinton -– the man famous for his love of McDonald’s and junk food -– went vegan, or nearly so. “At Thanksgiving, I had one bite of turkey,” he told CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Dr John Ellis MD

Board-certified anesthesiologist, with expertise in cardiovascular anesthesia and the implications of obesity and sleep apnea in anesthesia. See for professional information. Dr. Ellis has used the strategies in here to: (1) lose 120 lbs over 18 months, (2) stop all antihypertensive medicines, and (3) no longer need CPAP treatment for sleep apnea.

  1. Good for him…more BBQ for me! Fortunately, genetics has blessed me with an ability to eat reasonalble quantities of red meat without ill effects (most recent cholesterol…129). My doctor, a dedicated vegetarian and trained nutritionist (U of I, 1976) is amazed…and pleased that I listen to her!
