More and more celebrities are going green and choosing to become vegetarians in order to live a healthier lifestyle. Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh have become the latest in the celebrity brigade to jump on the vegan bandwagon, according to DNA. Riteish, who hated vegetables, has turned vegetarian (he only eats eggs now) after his wife Genelia pushed him to eat healthy and be aware of the essential nutrition that is required for the body. Riteish revealed that his wife Genelia is extremely good with sticking to a diet and that she also manages to ensure proper nutrition is available. It was she who suggested to him to follow certain people on Instagram, who promote healthy eating and switch to a healthier lifestyle.
Riteish who still dislikes eating vegetables, has come out with a great solution – vegetable juice! He told DNA that he blends together all the vegetable that the body needs and has a big glass of raw vegetable juice every day. At night, he prefers veg soup prior to dinner. This way he completes his vegetable quota for the day.
Though it seems very difficult for a person to ditch meat and related products and go all green, definitely it is not impossible! The 38-year-old actor said that he and Genelia decided to go vegetarian because he was eating too much of non-veg food and he believes that one needs to cleanse the body from all the toxic stuff that he/she is having. Riteish who hasn’t worked out in years is also planning to get himself into the ‘work out’ zone soon.
