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.

Improved
health

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.”

Life-changing

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.”
