Zac Efron announces he’s going vegan

Zac Efron says that he's eating purely vegan

Zac Efron has announced that he’s ‘going vegan’, with the 30-year-old actor joining a growing list of plant-based celebrities.

“I’ve been experimenting with eating purely vegan”, The Greatest Showman star told Teen Vogue this week, adding that he’s been making several recent lifestyle changes.

Biome Eco Stores - Zero Waste, Toxin Free, Ethical Choices

“That’s completely changed the way that my body works, and the way that I metabolise food, the way it turns into energy, the way that I sleep”.

“It’s been brilliant”, Efron revealed, “It’s been great for my exercise, and great for my routine”.

Efron also described his passion for the great outdoors, saying: “I love hiking, backpacking, or any sort of nature”.

“In Hawaii, I got to dive with tiger sharks… I kind of made a friend out there, in a tiger shark”, the actor recounted.

“And I survived to tell about it, so that was pretty cool”.

Zac Efron is also a self-confessed foodie, who said that his perfect day out would involve sampling local music and cuisine.

“I would love to just explore. I’m a huge foodie, so I could definitely visit the top restaurants and be jazzed”.

Australia’s plant-based community have welcomed Efron’s announcement, with fans taking to social media to express their delight: 

Ok he just got even hotter… If that’s possible!

Go him, each one that becomes vegan and is famous gets many others to follow.

I do think popular people going vegan is great for the cause. As much as we may not like it, people look up to actors, musicians etc… and seeing them make a positive change in their lives may help others follow.
