The Voice judge Will. I. Am - who made headlines early this year after announcing he'd gone vegan - has said a plant-based diet changed his life, and is encouraging others to try it.
The Black Eyed Peas singer told People Magazine that he lost 20 pounds and improved his health since changing his lifestyle - a move prompted by a less-than-satisfactory health report from his doctor.
He said: "My cholesterol came down, my high blood pressure came down. My stress levels came down naturally.
"I have more energy. My sleep regimen is awesome."
The self-proclaimed 'VGANG' member, who came from a past of poor sleep and processed food, maintains that the change in diet was the most important step he took with respect to his health.
He said: "It changed my life, and I would encourage everybody to have a plant-based regime."
