Ginnifer Goodwin - Ginnifer Goodwin Gives Up On Veganism

Actress Ginnifer Goodwin has turned her back on veganism for health reasons.
The Walk The Line star was a committed non-meat and dairy girl for years - but a recent illness made her realise she'd have to relax her dietary rules.
She explains, "I'm not a vegan anymore... I'm always learning and growing and changing and there were some boring health issues... and so I did actually have to work some animal products back into my diet."
But she's still serious about protecting animals and insists on buying produce from cruelty-free farms.
Goodwin adds, "The first thing I ate was an egg that I found from a humane farm... and I scrambled it up. It was the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. I felt like a hypocrite and I cried and then I scrambled up another one."
Ironically, Goodwin's meat and dairy-free lifestyle turned many members of her family vegan - and they're sticking to their diets.
Appearing on U.S. chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday (11May11), she said, "I go home and say, 'Are you serious? Let's get some cheese in this house.'"

So odd! I was just reading about her in Glamour's April issue where she's quoted as saying, "So many people say, 'I tried and it was too hard.' Then it''s not right for you. For me there's no 'try' involved. There's nothing I want less than a piece of cheese or a burger." Sad she has to change her diet due to health issues. :(

Fickle, plus lame, plus sad. Do it or don't; but spare me (and your family) this tone of inane revelry in animal junk in general, and cheese in particular... Adult mammals/ breastmilk/ weird idea. Mmmmkay? Personally I don't care what other people eat-- no, not even celebrities! (gasp!!!) People are diverse by nature, and will never agree on, well, anything... for the record, there are a lot of reasons to avoid the animal goop-- which *every* objective research-based nutrition/ dietetic society/ professional RD organization supports as a healthy option for meeting human nutritional needs... but, yeah... whatever. People are different, and are going to eat different things.Do what you want... but have a bit of dignity about it: try not to give yourself whiplash by reveling so blithely in what (moments ago) you found abhorrent.

I suspect she never was vegan in the first place, but as an actress used it to garner publicity - most of us have never heard of her.

How lame. Just like the other celebs, trying veganism on like the latest fashion. Somehow you just know they're not going to last. Still, full credit for the awareness she's generated. Do cruelty-farms exist? Maybe, but you can be sure the animals on them die violent deaths and not of old age.
