While there are a number of celebrity vegetarians and famous vegans who follow a vegan diet, Ellen DeGeneres has joined their ranks with a new site called Going Vegan with Ellen that will serve as an introduction to the vegan lifestyle and offer tips on how to adopt a plant-based diet.
According to the Mother Nature Network, Ellen DeGeneres will celebrate her love for the vegan lifestyle on an offshoot of her official Ellen.com site.
DeGeneres, 53, became a vegan in late 2008, along with her wife, actress Portia de Rossi. The site features recipes, tips for beginning a vegan diet and a list of famous vegans, along with book and film resources for people considering a vegan diet.
While some vegans are celebrating DeGeneres’ commitment to the vegan lifestyle, Mother Nature News reported that other fans are skeptical of her relationship with Cover Girl, one of the largest U.S. brands to conduct animal testing on its products.

Through a series of emails, phone calls and meetings, Richard helped to transform this young man from an obese and lethargic individual to an energetic and trim young chap. In fact, David lost 159 pounds with the help of Richard.
The two recently talked with Ellen about David’s transformation and weight loss journey.
