Celebrity Ne-Yo has described going vegan as one of the best things he’s ever done, in a recent interview with Capital FM.

The singer, who claims he has lost over 30 pounds since turning vegan around two years ago, said he ‘loved’ the plant-based diet.

“I am loving it. I genuinely am. It’s been about two years. More energy, my face clears up, weight falls off,” Ne-Yo said.

‘Y’all don’t care’

Ne-Yo told Capital FM his vegan journey began after watching Netflix’s What The Health documentary, stating: “To put it frankly, it p***ed me off. It really did. I was like, let me get this straight: the person giving you the disease and the person fighting the disease are in bed together? To hell with y’all.

“Out of spite, I went vegan because I was like, Y’all don’t care.”

‘We’re gonna make it work’

Last year, the star revealed his concerns that sticking to the vegan lifestyle might become challenging.

But he was committed, saying: “We’re gonna make it work! Because it means something. It means saving your life.”
