Is a vegan Glenn Beck that shocking? Apparently. Conservative and controversial radio and TV host was booed recently by fans, and for a moment he may have thought Charlie Sheen had walked into the room. But no, it was not Charlie Sheen. It was his fans' reaction to his "big" reveal on his "Glenn Beck Live On Stage!" speaking tour in Houston, TX, according to Ecorazzi."What was the big news? He's eating vegan.
Typically celebrities who publicly discuss veganism and the vegan diet do so because they are making a statement against animal cruelty. He's doing it for health reasons. While the agitator and talk show host usually leaves a bad taste in people's mouths with his rants and raves, this time he did it with one word: vegan.
Glenn Beck Vegan: What He's Not Eating
So what is Glenn Beck not eating if he's following a vegan diet? He would have to avoid all dairy and meat as well as any processed foods containing products derived from animals including poultry, fish or meat according to The Vegetarian Resource Group. There is no way to know how strict he's following the vegan diet.
Since Beck's doing it for his health (and really, can you fault anyone even Glenn Beck for trying to find a diet that improves health?) he probably won't be avoiding other animal-derived foods like honey. He's probably not giving up leather shoes or his leather wallet anytime soon.
