Earlier this week, we told you about PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Next Door. Now we have the Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2010. The top honors for man and woman go to Bob Harper of The Biggest Loser and Olivia Wilde from TV’s House.
Wilde is motivated by both health and political reasons: “Beyond my desire to boycott the torture factories, I am also way happier when I eat a plant based diet, and I feel about a thousand times more energetic,” said Wilde.
Bob Harper’s public explanation is pretty much 100 percent about health.
“I enjoy living a plant-based diet because it makes me feel clear headed and strong, not to mention my genetically high cholesterol dropped more than 100 points,” Harper said. “That was all the motivation I needed.”
PETA’s contests for sexiest vegetarian celebrities and people next door could be viewed as a way to subliminally tell people “hey you can be sexy if you go veg,” or maybe it’s just a way of raising awareness for the lifestyle they see as not only humane and eco-friendly, but also healthy.
Being a vegetarian definitely puts you on the right track, but it doesn’t entitle one to good health. There are plenty of ways to avoid meat and still be heavy.
But, if you find yourself drawn to vegetarianism, for whatever reason, check out our vegetarian page, which lists a ton of dietary approaches, recipes, and much more.
