Forest Whitaker’s Weight Loss on Vegan Diet

by Megan on March 21, 2010

A couple of weeks ago at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, actor Forest Whitaker shocked fans with his new, slim physique. The 48-year-old actor, director and producer – who usually sports a burly figure – presented Oscar winner Sandra Bullock with her Best Actress award at the glamorous ceremony.

In 2007 Forest had to gain 70 pounds for his role as Uganda dictator Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland, for which he won the Best Actor Oscar, but after filming he says he got “serious” his diet and exercise routine. While Forest works out by doing martial arts and going hiking, the secret to his weight loss is his vegan diet.

“I’ve been trying to take care of myself,” he told Rachael Ray on her talk show recently. “I did meet with a nutritionist … and he talked to me about the way I was eating. I shifted the way I was eating, the way I was living. I started working out. I just wanted to be able to live a really good life.”

Other actors who have lost and maintain their weight on a vegan or vegetarian diet include Rubben Studdard, Ginnifer Goodwin, Alicia Silverstone and Ellen DeGeneres.
