After three years on a vegan diet, former President Bill Clinton says he doesnt crave steak. But cutting back on bread has been tough.
"Heavily processed carbs, you really have to control that," Clinton told AARP in a recent interview about his eating habits. The former president, now 66, went on a strict diet after a health scare in 2010, and he says he's kept it up.
Clinton, famous for his hearty appetite in the White House, has admitted before that he cheats sometimes.

This is why it is so hard to parody liberals. You cannot make this stuff up.
A recording of Monica agreeing was released later in the day.
Won’t be the diet that makes him sick....will be an STD....
Bill Clinton “cheats sometimes”? Diet? Marriage?
Mr. Clinton was our first white trash President. Historic, really. He was the first President of the United States with whom you would not have allowed your wife or daughter to meet privately.
Why does that song “Junk Food Junkie” suddenly come to mind?
Cigars are vegan.
Morons. My Uncle grew soy, told me never to eat it. Meat is good for you. So is animal fat. Salt, butter, olive oil, all fine. Vegans are idiots of the first degree.
What’s 12” long, 3” wide and hangs in front of an a$$hole?
Bill Clinton’s necktie.
(How do ya think he keeps his foreskin up?)
What do you get when you cross a crooked lawyer with a greedy politician?
A ‘feel good’ article about this snake. Isn’t that special.
What’s the definition of an ‘Arkansas Virgin’?
That’s any female who can run faster than the governor.
What’s the difference between a roadkill rattler and Bill Clinton lying on the interstate?
There are skidmarks in front of the rattlesnake.
We could do this all day. And remember: Barry’s even worse.
So which one is Webb Hubbell?
” This guy would lie to you if it cost him, rather than tell you the truth when it would be to his benefit.”
That’s why I just laugh when I see someone quoting him.
Bill Clinton: “ If I knew I could steal 100 million, i WOULD HAVE TAKEN BETTER CARE OF MYSELF”
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress off....
The last I saw of him, he looked like death warmed over. Looks like that diet is really paying off.
” The last I saw of him, he looked like death warmed over.”
Stay on that diet, Bill : )
why am I laughing at that statement
Great minds... :^)
Andrew Jackson had some of the credentials for WT.
My favorite Clinton photo ops
1) the 20 pound Bible
2) When he was caught by a cameraman laughing with someone at a funeral...looks up and spots the cameraman, and wipes a fake tear from his eye : )
Maybe he will get dose of cyclospora.
I once worked with a vegan. He had the standard 8 hour day. I think he slept through about 4 of those hours every day. His work was seriously deficient. I would fix the errors and then he would (when he was awake) would go back and change them back to what we had before!
Pain in the butt! Fix something and have some jackass who can’t stay awake at work unfix it.
My sister went to a vegetarian diet for some time and eventually became deficient of iron. (Even though she was taking a supplement.) After having a serious problem just getting out of bed, her doctor advised her to begin eating MEAT!
She now eats chicken and seafood as a part of her diet and is doing much better.
One of the things about predators is that they normally have their eyes looking directly in front of them.
He’s Kept What UP????????????????????
“He was the first President of the United States with whom you would not have allowed your wife or daughter to meet privately.”, ya ever heard of Lyndon Johnson?
Agreed. I’ve found a Paleo style diet to be the best for me.
Yeah, he’s Mr. Health Conscious alright.
Thanks for the memory : )
I don’t disagree with Clinton (about making processed carbs a relatively rare “treat food”), but come on: ANYone could stick to a lower-carb diet if they had Clinton’s wealth. If I had $3M plus a year coming in, I’d have a staffed kitchen, etc., etc.
A vegan diet is slow suicide. Bye bye Bill.
Evil tyrants with robust health care generally tend to live long lives, not sure why, but FR has been forecasting the end of ole BJ for a long, long time.
Pathetic creature from whom all pathetic ‘RATS now flow: Spitzer, Weiner, Filner, etc.
Or Jack Kennedy?
Agree....I grew up in an area heavily populated by Seventh Day Adventists - who’ve been strictly ‘vegan’ before there was the word ‘vegan’...........our family doctor was of that sect, but he always told the family to ignore the silliness, and eat meat - lots of it.
He still enjoys dining at the Y.

Clinton is supposedly on Caldwell Esselstyn’s Prevent and reverse heart disease plan. While it’s a solely plant based diet Esselstyn also asks that no refined oil is added to food. That makes it a bit harder to follow. If weight is an issue, than simple starches are also cut out, like any products made from flour etc.
Plant based diets are medicinal, and not for everyone, and I don’t think healthy people need to worry. But if you do have health issues, this method of eating may help save your life and cut down or eliminate the amount of drugs you have to take.
I have gone plant based, and found the first thing that improved was my vision. In fact, I had just gotten my first prescription progressive lenses, which I found I needed to read the tv listings on screen, and very small letters on labels. Four weeks into the diet shift... I forgot to get my glasses while watching tv... and only remembered the next day when I sat down again and found I had no problems reading the screen.
