Voice Judge Will.I.Am Loses Weight And Lowers Cholesterol On A Vegan Diet


1 Minutes Read

The Voice star Will. i. am has revealed that he recently turned to a vegan diet in a bid to improve his health.

According to the former Black Eyed Peas star he ditched animal products at the end of 2017 – around a month ago.

In that time, he has lost 15lb (around a stone), and lowered his cholesterol and blood pressure.


According to the star, 42, 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.”


Will. i. am said that he had to ‘get it under control’, so he made the lifestyle changes.

He added: “The cholesterol is down as well but it runs in my family, and diabetes. 

“So I want to get it under control now so I don’t have to worry about it later on.”
