Not only is a vegan diet becoming popular to the public, but it is becoming popular with celebrities too. This trend seems to be increasing yearly.

Celebrities who are vegan tend to have different reasons to choosing a vegan diet and usually it is related to fame seeking but most of them turn to this diet due to health reasons.

Although many celebreties are on and off when it comes to the vegan diet it is still best to put them up here.

In this article I will talk about vegan celebrities.

Venus Williams

When I start talk about celebrities who are vegan Venus is the first one that comes to people’s minds due to what the diet did for her health.

Venus switched to vegan diet due to being diagnosed with a life threatening disease called jögren’s syndrome which is said to be incurable.

The vegan diet was recommended to Venus by her doctor to help with managing her condition.

Her sister Serena Williams also decided to join the diet in an effect to support her sister through the condition.

Venus has reported that the diet has really worked well for her and has even helped her with her performance on the court.

Many people thought when she switched to the diet her performance was not going to be the same again of which they were proven wrong.

Venus and her sister, Serena, have been doing very well on the courts even through changing their diet to vegan.

Norvak Djokovic

Norvak Djokovic is another tennis player who turned to the vegan diet for health and ethical reasons. This tennis play has raved a lot about how the vegan diet has helped improve his performance on the court.

The tennis player is so passionate about plant based eating to the point that he has even opened a restaurant called Eqvita.

However I would not consider him truly or 100% vegan since his actual diet just focuses on plant based meals not necessary vegan.

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson’s reason for becoming vegan is a bit similar my story, It was related to heart disease that he developed. Although his was a bit deeper than mine since it involved arthritis and a near death experience.

This former heavyweight boxing champion turned to a vegan diet in 2010 and soon after reported that this diet gave him back his health almost instantly.

Mike Tyson was reported to have lost 100 pounds as soon as he turned vegan.

One dietitian said that Mike Tyson should focus on eating foods high in protein like beans and nuts.

He was also told to eat food that is going to help absorb iron in his body like vitamin C filled foods whenever he eats iron rich foods.


In 2012 this famous singer, Usher, decided to turn vegan and this was after a catastrophic event of the passing on of his father duet to a heart attack.

After that Usher has never looked back at all since he has experienced great health improvement in his life.

When I was writing this article I nearly did not put Usher on the list due to him still eating chicken and beef.

His diet would be more associated with semi vegetarian or pescatarian.

Usher has been on and off in the vegan diet due to complaining that the vegan diet is very expensive and too hard to sustain since it is hard to get people who eat a vegan diet who make good food.

What Usher said is typical of most vegan newbies and that is why they end up giving up on the diet.

That is the reason why I wrote a dedicated post which answered whether the vegan diet is expensive or not. And I explain why it is not and why most vegans mistakes that vegan end up spending a lot.

    I did not know that Mike Tyson was vegan. This is interesting though as it has helped him with his health.

    I just can not imagine a person as big as him having to leave meat which has protein.
