Will. I. Am Credits Vegan Diet For Significant Weight Loss

'The Voice' judge ditched all animal products at the end of 2017
The star is enjoying his new lifestyle

Will. I. Am has taken to Instagram stories to show off the weight loss he has achieved on his plant-based diet.

Earlier this year, the star revealed he had ditched all animal products at the end of 2017.

According to the former Black Eyed Peas star a visit to the doctor prompted his lifestyle change.


He said: "I went to the doctor because I had this cough I couldn’t kick.

"They said I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I was like, 'Why am I having that?'.

"It is because I work and work and work and travel, travel, travel. I eat whatever I eat, I had no regiment in what I was eating."

Yesterday the star shared weight loss stats on Instagram Stories. Posting a picture of himself, he wrote: "210lb to 188lb in three months."

Following the post, Will. I. Am went on UK daytime TV Show Loose Women, where he spoke about his plant-based diet more.

He said: "I talk to my doctor all the time, he helped saved my best friend’s life, Taboo in the Black Eyed Peas had testicular cancer which he fought and beat, he helped Lance Armstrong, and he helped keep Steve Jobs alive for as long as he could.

"We're blessed to have access to great professions."
