Ex-Vegan Miley Cyrus Says It’s ‘Over The Top’ To Be Invested In Other People’s Diets – Plant Based News

Miley Cyrus says it is 'a little over the top' to judge other people's diets

Ex-vegan Miley Cyrus says it is 'over the top' for vegans to be 'so invested in other people's diets'.

The celebrity recently revealed that she has ditched her vegan diet and now eats fish while appearing on a recent episode of Joe Rogan's podcast.

The star, who has since been blasted for spreading misinformation, said she needed to eat fish as her 'brain wasn't functioning properly', and is now 'eating for her brain type'.

Responding to Cyrus' revelations, Rogan said the vegans 'would come for her' after admitting she now eats animals, and the singer replied that they will come for her, but it's ok, as she is 'used to people coming for me'.

She added: "Listen, I give home, I have 22 animals on my farm in Nashville, I've got 22 in my house in Calabasas, like I'm doing what I need to do for the animals, okay? But when it comes to my brain - you're not vegan, you can't be vegan and living this kind and being this quick, but sure you can, some people can, I cannot [sic]."

Rogan asked what veganism did to her brain, and Cyrus replied: "Now I'm so much sharper than I was and I think that I was at one point pretty malnutritioned [sic]."

Now Cyrus has discussed the situation further during this morning's edition of the Edge morning show, as reported by NewsHub. The singer said she was 'expecting some backlash from the vegan community'.

"When I was vegan I was really worried about other people's diets and really judgey... it's a little over the top to be so invested in other people's diets," she said.

"If I was feeling at my best... and could learn how to live at a 110 percent living a vegan lifestyle I would have done... I just didn't get there."

Despite Cyrus' claims about a vegan diet and brain function, ND Dr. Matthew Nagra has spoken out about how 'fatigue (mental or physical) can be caused by a myriad of issues, which may not be diet-related, and theres no indication that she was seeking any medical care'.

"In addition, its important to note that the research on omega-3 supplements (EPA/DHA) and cognitive function is mixed, with potential benefit in older adults specifically. Of course, fish is a source of these omega-3s, but so is a vegan algae-based supplement," he wrote in an Instagram post.

"That being said, it is unclear if vegans even need to supplement since we produce EPA and DHA from short-chain omega-3s (ALA) in foods like flax and our levels dont vary much from fish eaters. Furthermore, those with genetically elevated levels dont seem to be protected against Alzheimers disease, which is why I just think of these supplements as an extra safety measure, to ensure you get enough."

He added: "Something that should give pause is when someone notices drastic improvements with a small dietary change. This SCREAMS placebo effect. On a physiological level, its impossible for a few meals of seafood to drastically change omega-3 levels, especially within the brain.

"This becomes even more likely when a vegan has constantly been told that their diet is deficient by those who clearly have not seen the data. We can start to believe itThat being said, we have no clue what Miley was actually eating.

"So before you see all the carnivore doctors posting about this negative anecdote, even though meat is a poor source of omega-3s, remember that an anecdote isnt science and the overwhelming body of evidence suggests that vegans/vegetarians have lower risk of many non-communicable diseases and all-cause mortality. Theres a reason that health professionals like @drgarthdavis and @brendadavisrd continue to thrive without any signs of slowing down."

Hop on the bandvegan – Hindustan Times

In a pandemic hit world, humans are making humane choices. There is a desire to safeguard health,protect the planet and eradicate unethical treatment of animals. And veganism offers an opportunity to make a difference. It entails a plant-based diet and abstention from all animal foods such as meat,dairy and eggs.

Chef Sanjay B Dasari , Executive Chef, The Ashok, says, The number of people embracing veganism is on a noticeable rise. Today, customers are more aware of what they eat and want to live a conscious life. With the growing demand, the repertoire of vegan dishes is also expanding and gaining popularity. More and more restaurants are experimenting with taste, and avoiding dairy and other non-vegan ingredients.

The growing inclination towards conscious eating habits, backed by health benefits is set to drive veganism as a way of life in the days to come.

Chef Arun Sundaraj, Executive Chef, Taj Mahal, says, During the pandemic the need to eat healthy has seen a new high primarily because people are getting educated on what it is that they are actually eating. India has a lot many communities that support vegetarianism so for a person to eat a vegan meal in India is not difficult as there are a large variety of products that they can eat.

Vegan or plant based food eliminates any kind of saturated fats which is the main reason for the increase of cholesterol and other heart related diseases. It is very important to maintain a balanced meal especially during the pandemic when outdoor activities have considerably gone down. Veganism is one of the best practices to follow at this time and that is precisely why it is gaining traction, says chef Vikramjit Roy who has come up witha Pan Asian menu at Hello Panda.

Long gone are the days when people thought vegans only ate salads! With imaginative menuscoming up, we know it isnt a fleeting trend.

Chef Ashish Singh, Corporate Chef, Cafe Delhi Heights, says, It was a misconception that vegan food cannot be delicious. We have made sure to curate a menu which is elaborate and interesting as well.

As veganism occupies a larger space in contemporary life, restaurateurs are working overtime to innovate menus. Chef Manish Mehrotra of The Indian Accent says, Our new vegan menu is all things healthy. With a conscious and a more aware consumer, we have to ensure a high-quality vegan food and simultaneously it has to be tasty, healthy, ethical and planet-friendly.

For Sagar Bajaj, corporate chef at Plum by Bentchair,says one should not feel restricted if they are vegan.We want to be a part of peoples journey and fully support it so our menu boasts of an array of vegan options like Crystal Dumplings and Tempura AsparagusUramaki.

Restaurateur Priyank Sukhija, says, We have kept in mind the food habits of different people. We have an array of Mediterranean vegan delicacies. Dishes like Baba Ghanoush and Muhammara are a must-try at Diablo.

For desserts too, options abound. LOpera has a vegan range of French desserts made without butter, cream or milk. Kazem Samandari, executive chairman, says, With growing demand, this is the need of the hour. Inspired to be a vegan gourmand?

This Black-owned business is bringing vegan treats to the masses, one cookie at a time – Soapbox Cincinnati

When it comes to a niche, a Cincinnati-based purveyor of vegan treats is challenging norms three times over.

Like Moms Only Vegan (LMOV) is a woman-owned, Black-owned, and family-owned enterprise thats taking the Queen Citys food scene by storm.

Naimah Sams, LMOVs communications and branding manager, is the daughter and granddaughter of the co-founders, Naomi Sams and Sakile Chenzira, respectively.

The mother and daughter team started the business, and eventually Naimahs immediate family found themselves in the mix, too.

According to Naimah, her mothers natural knack for the culinary arts was evident to her from a young age.

My upbringing was always a very exciting food journey, she says. My mom would make conventional staples of the American diet, like mac and cheese only vegan. And for birthdays we always had cake and ice cream. So, I never felt left out of anything.

Eventually the word got out about her baking prowess and Naomi decided to take her hobby to the next level. She made a name for herself with her cookies in particular the chocolate chip version by setting up shop at Northside Farmers Market.

The cookies proved to be a good foray into commercial baking, says Naimah, as they were portable and scalable. And perhaps most importantly, they exposed people to the accessibility and versatility of vegan food.

People were like, Man, this is amazing, she says. And thankfully, the people were already pretty open to the idea of veganism even if they weren't vegan.

Naimah says eventually they expanded with a booth at Findlay Market and theyve further cemented their brand identity, while building a loyal following and adding cupcakes to their lineup.

Speaking of identity, Naimah says being Black-owned and vegan makes them a bit of an anomaly.

I think that there is a misconception in a way about Black people and veganism, she explains. We don't get as much exposure as maybe our white counterparts do. But we're out here and we are having fun with our food and we are making a lot of waves through our creations.

So, whats next for this cruelty-free brand? According to Naimah, the booths at the farmers markets have been a great way to learn how to run a storefront, on a micro level.

Its been a great learning experience working out of an incubator kitchen and then also working out of Findlay Market to give us an understanding of how it would look if we got our own spot, which of course is our ultimate goal, she says. But looking to the future, we'd really love to have a complete LMOV-branded bakery. What we want to do is create a gathering place for people to come in and eat all the vegan sweets they want.

Regarding community building, Naimah says they would also like to forge more partnerships with local restaurants and stores to further expand their reach.

Global Vegan Women’s Fashion Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report 2020-2027: Footwear Accounted for 41.3% of Revenue in 2019 -…

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Vegan Women's Fashion Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Accessories, Clothing & Apparel, Footwear), by Distribution Channel (E-commerce, Specialty Stores), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027" report has been added to's offering.

Increasing the inclination of people towards cruelty-free fashion is an important aspect of driving the demand for fashion apparel made from vegan material.

People in developed countries, especially in the U.S, the U.K., France, and Germany have become more receptive to the concepts of veganism and have been following this practice in all walks of life, including food habits and clothing. These consumers do not mind paying higher prices for vegan women's fashion, thus fueling the growth of the market.

Enthused by the opportunity existence, companies pertaining to vegan fashion not only focus on providing the latest styles but also cater to cultural trends and burgeoning style quotient to attract a varied set of consumers through constant product launch. For instance, in August 2019, an Amsterdam-based denim brand called Kings of Indigo, announced itself to be a fully-vegan company with the launch of no new cotton' capsule collection- Re Gen, offering a limited edition of jeans and jacket collection for women, men, and kids. Such developments are expected to create a healthy demand for the product over the forecast period.

Based on the product, the vegan footwear segment led the market and accounted for 41.3% share of the global revenue in 2019. The growing popularity of animal safety among consumers has goaded established footwear manufacturers to offer elegant footwear made from natural ingredients to pique the interest of the informed customers. For instance, in November 2019, Reebok International Limited, a company owned by Adidas AG, unveiled the design for its first plant-based running shoe, called Floatride GROW. The upper part of the shoe is made primarily from eucalyptus whereas its soles are made from castor beans and natural rubber. The company had launched this design two years after it started selling a vegan version of its famed Newport Classic shoes made with cotton and corn.

By distribution channel, specialty stores dominated the market and accounted for 31.4% share of the global revenue in 2019. Wide product range, offers, and discounts attracting a larger number of consumers are the key strategies opted by such channels to increase revenue and footfall in any store. In addition, these stores keep their stores more updated with the latest vegan fashion trends in the market, thus attracting more consumers who are looking for variety in the product.

Covid-19 pandemic has affected the sales of vegan women's fashion adversely as people have become more focused on their buying behavior and consider avoiding buying fashionable apparel or accessories. The vegan fashion market is in the burgeoning stage and has been severely impacted by the lockdown condition and supply chain disruption. According to the, the U.K. apparel sector is expected to be the worst affected with a decline of more than 41% in the usual spending by consumers since the outbreak of the coronavirus.

North America dominated the market for vegan women's fashion and accounted for 34.6% share of the global revenue in 2019. Growth in the market is powered by the strong presence of manufacturers, including Whimsy & Row and Reformation, along with a well-developed supply chain in the region. Moreover, people in countries such as the U.S. have a large number of animal rights organizations, such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and The Anti-Cruelty Society, which have been promoting the concept of veganism.

The Ferguson Report: ‘Did I mention that I mentioned I’m vegan?’ – The New Daily


Research by culinary website Chefs Pencil reveals a disturbing rise of veganism among previously interesting people.

Australia is the second-most vegan nation in the world, behind only the UK, where food was already dangerously lacking in flavour.

Many interesting conversations about politics, philosophy and The Bachelor are being rudely interrupted by earnest declarations:

Did I mention Im vegan?

Did I mention that I mentioned Im vegan?

You are rolling your eyes at me it could be Mad Cows Disease.

A vegan named Megan said, There are too many methane-producing cows warming the planet.

Meat-lovers declared they are working on the problem.


Fifty per cent of Americans say the other 50 per cent of Americans are communist riot-rabblers.

50 per cent of Americans say the other 50 per cent of Americans are fascist neck-kneelers. Both sides are 100 per cent right.

Joe Bidens most attractive asset is that after his Inauguration speech, he will drop dead. Donald Trump claims Trump is the best man to fix the hateful chaos caused by Trump.

Fortunately for the safety of democracy, most Americans dont vote. Trumps followers are expected to not vote. Twice.


The former prime ministers of a little known island somewhere in the Pacific (or Indian?) Ocean said something or other about whatever.

Kevin Rudd, loved by all who are Kevin Rudd, has a popularity rating of .07 with a 100 per cent margin of error.

Former PMs Paul Keating, John Howard and Malcolm Turnbulltwang announced their own barbecue-stoppers. But no one is having barbecues.

Thankfully, Tony Abbott kept quietly working for the English, as always.


Movies must meet diversity standards in order to qualify for Best Picture at the Oscars.

To win an Oscar, movies must have at least one main character from an under-represented group such as non-Marvel superheroes and North Korean comedians.

Meanwhile, right-wing groups attacked Hollywoods negative stereotyping of minorities such as serial-killers, Nazis and anyone on the Dark Side of the Force. A spokesman in a Make America Germany Again hat said, Hollywood gives pure evil a bad name.

The new guidelines are a Woke-up call, said a non-species-specific entity.

Luckily, male-dominated movies featuring wars, gladiators and Moon landings have never been popular.

Miley Cyrus Reveals She Quit Her Vegan Diet For Health Reasons, Was ‘Running On Empty’ – Women’s Health

Miley Cyrus has been a vegan for years, but she just revealed in a new interview that shes stopped the diet because it was negatively impacting her health. But, she says, shes not happy about it.

Miley dropped the knowledge on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Wednesday. I was vegan for a very long time and Ive had to introduce fish and omegas into my life because my brain wasnt functioning properly, she said. Miley said she also was having intense hip pain that she thinks was due to her vegan diet.

FWIW: Miley knows some people arent going to be happy with that news. Vegans are going to come for me and thats OK. Im used to people coming for me, she said.

Miley said she followed the strictest [vegan diet] youve ever known from 2013 to 2019, and her first non-vegan meal was cooked by her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. My ex-husband cooked me some fish on the grill, she said. I cried, like, for a long time. I cried for the fish it really hurts me to eat fish.

This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

But while she doesnt exactly love eating fish, Miley said its really improved her health and her thinking. Now Im so much sharper than I was and I think that I was, at one point, pretty malnutritioned, she said. I remember going to Glastonbury [music festival] and that was a show that I lovedI loved my performancebut I was running on empty. Shes also added gluten back into her diet, BTW.

Miley said its really terrifying to leave veganism because of the backlash she might receive, but she wants people to know that she still loves animals. I have 22 animals on my farm in Nashville, Ive got 22 in my house in Calabasas, Im doing all I need to do for the animals, she said. But when it comes to my brain you cant be vegan and be this quick.

So, Miley now considers herself a pescatarian (i.e. a vegetarian who eats fish). Thats where Im at, she said. But, in true Miley style, shes open to other eating plans. Im experimenting a lot with my diet, and my body, and my routine and my exercise right now, she said.

And yeah, Miley called it: She's already getting served some haterade on Twitter over ending her vegan diet.

Switzerland was number 8 on the list (Photo: Adobe. Do not use without permission)

The top 10 countries where veganism is most popular have been revealed in a new list.

Chef's Pencil compiled the list by analyzing Google Trends data, which it describes as a 'reliable source of big data', to search interest level for veganism across the world.

It found that searches in the veganism category (including vegan-related searches made in any language) were at an all-time high in 2020.

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Chef's Pencil revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped the rise of veganism but has 'added fuel to its popularity'.

The organization added that searches for vegan recipes have skyrocketed, and continue to go strong - even though lockdown has come to an end in most parts of the world and many restaurants have re-opened.

Search data showed that countries whose cuisine traditionally is greatly meat- and dairy-based are seeing a big rise in veganism, said Chef's Pencil, which it concluded means that 'veganism is stronger than ever'.

1. United Kingdom (Popularity Score: 100)

2. Australia (Popularity Score: 87)

3. Israel (Popularity Score: 84)

4. Austria (Popularity Score: 82)

Mike Does A Miley: How Joe Rogan Became The Antithesis Of Veganism – Plant Based News

Mike Tyson has announced he is no longer vegan (Photos: Instagram. Edited by PBN)

Miley Cyrus made headlines this week for announcing she's no longer vegan - claiming her half-a-decade abstinence from animal products had left her brain unable to 'function properly'.

The singer's confession to nonother than carnivore enthusiast Joe Rogan stirred up quite the frenzy online - with social media users blasting the celeb for 'spreading false information' about plant-based diets.

And just as the storm was settling - heavyweight champ Mike Tyson also denounced himself from veganism - as he sat against the same purple-curtained backdrop as Cyrus.

The boxer, who previously said he refused to eat 'anything with a mother', confessed to eating 'wild' meat such as elk and bison before commencing training to re-enter the ring.

He told Rogan that without animal-products, he would be unable to achieve what he 'wanted his body to look like' - before nonchalantly discussing if the hunter could kill a bison for him.

Rogan, who has a propensity to new diet trends and fads, has never shied away from discussing veganism - to the point where vegan ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll said he 'brings up veganism more than I do'.

In fact, Rogan's podcast has pretty much become a battleground for discussing veganism in recent times. He often invites low-carb / keto diet proponents with quack credentials who, at best, are unqualified to make the statements they so confidently do.

Take for example paleo advocate and licensed acupuncturist Chris Kresser - who was welcomed onto The Joe Rogan Experience to 'debunk' The Game Changers documentary and described it as 'vegan propaganda'.

Rogan never deleted the interview with Kresser, even after praising producer James Wilks for defending the film's criticism - adding that he 'knocked it out of the park'.

Discussions around veganism are of course healthy, and even essential to rid some of the myths that even vegans are guilty of propagating, but there's something that seems so frivolous about Rogan and the way he toys with veganism - giving voice to those who will bash out unsupported claims and seldom presenting credible and respected figures to debate.

Rogan's bias is also evident. Last year he was slammed by renowned Cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn for being 'funded by meat companies'- saying that they're his podcast's 'number one sponsor'. Dr. Kahn also added that supporting pro-plant-based films like The Game Changers has the ability to 'threaten his audience'.

Which is clear, when Rogan relishes in vegans leaving the movement and doesn't question their blatant pseudoscience - despite admitting that his carnivore diet made him 'more aggressive' and made him fear soiling himself.

Just like Kresser's attack on The Game Changers, Cyrus's justification for eating fish and feeling 'so much sharper' for it have already been flattened.

ND Dr. Matthew Nagra has spoken out about how 'fatigue (mental or physical) can be caused by a myriad of issues, which may not be diet-related

"It's important to note that the research on omega-3 supplements (EPA/DHA) and cognitive function is mixed, with potential benefit in older adults specifically. Of course, fish is a source of these omega-3s, but so is a vegan algae-based supplement," he said.

"That being said, it is unclear if vegans even need to supplement since we produce EPA and DHA from short-chain omega-3s (ALA) in foods like flax and our levels dont vary much from fish eaters.

He added: "Something that should give pause is when someone notices drastic improvements with a small dietary change. This SCREAMS placebo effect. On a physiological level, its impossible for a few meals of seafood to drastically change omega-3 levels, especially within the brain.

"This becomes even more likely when a vegan has constantly been told that their diet is deficient by those who clearly have not seen the data. We can start to believe itThat being said, we have no clue what Miley was actually eating."

Similarly, Team Sherzai M.D criticised Cyrus claims - stating: Entertainers, journalists and public figures dont determine health policies. Science does

Her brain not functioning properly is such a vague and multifaceted symptom affected by so many things, not just avoiding fish. Sleep deprivation, junk food, stress, not being organized, recreational drugs, etc. can affect cognition negatively.

Tyson's reasons were, in a way, too vague and anecdotal to properly debunk - but it's clear from the array of vegan bodybuilders, strongmen, and athletes that you can be in top shape without eating animals.
