Going vegan takes dedication, and the ability to live your life without chicken and cheese quesadillas. People choose to go vegan for a variety of reasons. Some people think it’s better for the environment, or will help stop animal suffering. Others just believe that vegan diets are healthier. In some cases, that’s true, but definitely not as a blanket rule. Ghirardelli hot chocolate mixes are vegan, for example, but if you just consumed cocoa all day everyday you would live an odd and undeniably unhealthy existence, my friend. 
"When you come down to it, it just depends on what your diet is made up of," Jen Bruning, MS, RDN, LDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist in Chicago and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, previously told Refinery29. “The idea that [veganism] an automatic improvement in health or nutrition is probably one of the biggest myths.” There's also evidence that meat such as fish and chicken are good for you. And a recent recommendation in The Annals of Internal Medicine noted that red and processed meat isn't as bad for us as previously believed.
 
With that said, plenty of people have tried going vegan or are vegan — including some of your favourite celebrities. November is World Vegan Month, according to The Vegan Society, and many may take this as an opportunity to reaffirm their allegiance to the vegan community or try it out for the first time. So if you need some inspiration to give up your favourite burger spot, here are a few stars who've tried it for reasons ranging from the environment to their health.
