Dancing With The Stars contestant Derek Hough has adopted a plant-based diet along with girlfriend Hayley Erbert.

The TV personality has told Us Weekly that it's 'hard not to be [vegan] in L.A.' - and that he feels great.

Hough and his girlfriend have recently turned to a vegan diet to improve their health and boost their energy.


The 32-year-old celeb believes eating a plant-based diet is easy.

"We both are trying the vegan thing right now, and it’s actually really easy.

"I have a lots of energy, my skin has cleared up, I feel great," said Hough.

The professional dancer has ditched animal products in favor of improved health, and not feeling 'tired and sluggish'.

He went on to say: "There is a life where you can wake up and have level 10 energy from the minute you wake up to the minute you go to sleep, without having to take caffeine or take coffee. 

"That does exist."
