maybe it is going mainstream and maybe it is still fad like vegetarian was with the hippi generation, but it is a fad that does need to catch on

Lol! I think Jessica Simpson is trying to change her ditsy image. I remember a few months back I caught something where she has a new show about what is considered beauty in other parts of the world. She also promoted going without make-up. Maybe she really is trying to "mature" and going vegan is real for her. I think the more people that talk about going vegan makes the whole concept "mainstream" and not so mysterious.jmo

Definitely Bob of course but I don't think she's doing it to be a spokesperson.

Anyone in Hollywood has fans and the media let's any celebrities voice to be heard. My only point in posting this is that hopefully more and more become aware of the benefits physically and for the animal.


Thanks for the posts.

I rather have Bob Harper talking about veganism than Jessica Simpson!

You're worth so much more

I hope hubby goes vegan, it will be better for him even if he does meat once in awhile. Yea she is a dingbat you know how those celebrities tend to follow some of these of the wall discipline's. Bob is real, he is all about health and is doing it for the right reasons and that will have a positive impact on others

She does come off dingy. But but but I give up. LOl

I'm not defending her one bit but I don't know how going vegan can be a publicity stunt.

Anyone going vegan is almost frowned upon. I'm really tired of anti veg./vegan people say that we have teeth that are made for tearing and ripping flesh, when in fact it's the opposite animals do because they are carnivors.

You know that story...blah blah blah.

I get challenged all the time with not eating meat when at a gathering. I just think is she has been picked on lately about her weight and she might find it challenging as she gets older and maybe she trying veganism because she feels it will help her lose the weight faster.

Just my 2cp.

Horay Donna, I hope your hubby learns to enjoy the vegan food as much as my husband learned to do. He will be much better off.

He may not be a celebrity ( except in my mind!) but I believe I have finally convinced my husband to take Vegan eating a bit more seriously! He does eat the odd thing I make, but mostly relies on animal proteins. After watching Dr Neal Bernard on TV.. he thinks he will give it a go! Years of me telling him it would be better for him ( I am also in the medical field) fell on deaf ears, but that TV!! It has worked its magic!

Feel the burn!

I read it and it comes off as a publicity stunt to me.

Good for her for trying it though. I doubt very much she'll stay vegan.

I am glad when anyone gives up meat but Jessica Simpson is a loony-tune. I don't want to be grouped with her and her 'Visions' she makes us all seem crazy.

I haven't read the whole article yet just wanted to post this before I do so to get the news out.

I think it's wonderful to hear that celebrities are attempting veganism even if it's for a short time.

The more celebrities go vegan even vegetarian will help put more products out in the market and will also impact the dairy and meat industries to consider changing there thinking.

I don't care who it is whether she is liked or not the more the merrier.
