Xpert 7 dumbest_celebrity_vegetarians_ever

  1. 1. The 7 dumbest celebrity vegetarians. Ever. Ok, I don't have a problem with vegetarians in general. I do believe that monitoring your red meat intake has a lot of health benefits, and there are some vegetarian diets that work. But some of these celebrities became vegetarians for the dumbest reasons I have ever heard of. I want to lay out some of the most ignorant vegetarian conversions of all time. # 7 Christian Bale- The underlying reasons behind Christian Bale becoming a vegetarian are not fully apparent.
  2. 2. However, it'd obvious they must have been incredibly stupid. How do we know that? This quote says it all "I was up in Toronto and went to see that movie Life Is Beautiful. By myself. And when I came out, I had a craving for blood unlike anything I had ever experienced since I decided to go vegetarian at the age of 7. It was a compulsion. It was undeniable. I went to several restaurants, one right after the other, and got the biggest, bloodiest steaks I could get my hands on. It was the first time I had tasted flesh in almost twenty years." Anyone who decides to gorge themselves on large, unhealthy portions of red meat because they saw a hauntingly beautiful, foreign film about Nazi-occupied Italy, must have a generally self-destructive pattern of eating to begin with. The reasons to be a vegetarian ought to be solidly rooted in health considerations. Specifically, you should have easy diet plans that you constructed with a health coach or nutritional expert. Randomly giving in to cravings like this certainly means Christian's blood sugar was off and that his vegetarian diet was not maintainable to begin with. # 6 Albert Einstein.
  3. 3. Despite arguably being the most intelligent human being ever, Albert is on the record as saying "I am living without all fats and am feeling good this way. It seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore." What's the problem with being a vegetarian just to cut out
  4. 4. fats? Hello, FAT IS GOOD FOR YOU. Healthy fats, such as those obtained from organic fish and chicken significantly decrease risk of heart disease, stroke, Crohn's disease, and arthritis. So how can the smartest man alive cite such an ignorant reason? Well, that's what happens when you spend too much time in your head- you get completely disconnected from your body! # 5 Mr. Spock- Spock became a vegetarian because Vulcans decided millions of years ago that raising animals on the planet vulcan took a lot more resources than growing corn (which vulcans love).
  5. 5. Specifically a single cow, by their calculations, took 13.6 Mbtus of energy whereas a comparable amount of calories in corn took only 0.3. Vulcan is a desert planet and it was LOGICAL to grow corn and not eat animals. But aboard the enterprise, there was no reason to follow this rule. So what does Spock do? Instead of partaking in the dozens of delicious meals his coworkers eat regularly on the bridge (such as the plomeek soup that Captain Kirk enjoys- check out a good plomeek soup recipe here) he just STARVES himself, and never eats...ever. Except once, here is the quote "“I’m behaving disgracefully. I have eaten animal flesh and I’ve enjoyed it. What is wrong with me?“ Obviously he took the practical consideration of growing vegetables way too far, starved himself, and has serious issues around eating food period. Not QUITE so logical, Mr. Spock. # 4 Ricki Lake-
  6. 6. Ricki is a vegetarian who spends a considerable amount of time advocating for animal rights and is a convicted member of PETA. Nothing wrong with that. She also suffered from adult onset diabetes and obesity. Not so good. If you're going to put in so much time advocating a certain diet, you should at least make it balanced enough to prevent chronic health conditions. Instead of clinging on to a vegetarian diet, she should have developed a strategy for managing blood sugar. You can eat vegetables all day but if you are not eating foods with anti-inflammatory hormones, you will retain insulin and your body just turns all those vegetables into fat. Not to mention you will crave sweets constantly- which is apparently what happened to Ricki! # 3 Alanis Morissette. The angst-ridden singer-songwriter decided to become a vegetarian after she received a fan letter from PETA depicting a dead calf. Makes
  7. 7. sense....Except that when she declared her new diet, all she said was "I want to be the healthiest person, ever." It's a fact that vegetarians have as many health problems on average as meat- eaters.....it's people with a balanced diet that are healthy. Not to mention she didn't even reply to the fan letter! # 2 Apu Nahasapeemapetilon- Apu reveals himself to be a vegetarian in 1995, after Lisa, frustrated and angry with her family, runs into his store and bites on a hot dog. After Lisa screams in disgust, Apu steps forward to reveal that it was, in fact, a tofu dog, and that Apu eats them every day because he is a vegetarian. He goes on to state he feels this is healthier and more ethical. More ethical...maybe. Healthier? Um....serving fried tofu on a convenience store grill, a tofu dog that looks highly processed and completely devoid of nutrients.. Sorry to break
  8. 8. the news, but FRESH, unprocessed foods, whether it be meat or otherwise- always have higher health benefits then processed foods. Hands down! True, the meat industry has a reputation for processing, but the soy and peanut industries take a close second. These industries are KNOWN for assembly line processing and chemical enhancement that is every bit as unhealthy as processed meat. Sorry Apu. #1 Jack Johnson, when asked why he became a vegetarian, he replied“I was on tour and I ate some really bad chicken nachos." Need I say more? The fact he chose to live a lifestyle where he did not plan his meals and ate fast food wasn't the problem nooo, it was somehow construed to be the chicken- which is an incredibly health source of protein. Oh, he adds this little piece of wisdom
  9. 9. about his vegetarian lifestyle " If anybody invites me over, I eat whatever they serve." If you want to read more about healthy and easy diet plans, as well as weight loss service click here.
