It’s more than just Alicia Silverstone’s healthy living advice that makes me straighten up and pay attention- it’s the fact that she is gorgeous, living proof of the change that the right diet can make in a person’s life.
As long as Alicia’s been around in Hollywood, she’s been beautiful. But she tells Health magazine that she experienced a profound change in the way she felt and looked after she went vegan at age 21.
“When I look at those pictures from back then, I can see the puffiness in my eyes. It’s weird to be 32 now and feel and look younger… Right after I first made the switch to a plant-based diet, people were literally telling me, ‘What have you done? You’re sparkling.’”
But will you ever see Alicia at the gym? Not likely.
“Diet first, exercise second. Exercise is fantastic, and when I need to be a certain way quickly, I amp up my exercise by walking the dogs and doing yoga.”
Alicia has put her experiences, advice and recipes into a unique diet book called The Kind Diet, due to be released in October. We’re expecting it to be as wonderful as Alicia and can’t wait for more of her tips on looking and feeling great.
“I’m excited about presenting something that can make you feel amazing and look your best. Once you’re informed, then you can be really gentle and kind to yourself, by giving yourself all the gifts life has to offer—like mental clarity and vitality—all while making the planet better.”
