Bill Clinton Turns Vegan (Video)

Former President Bill Clinton, who turned 65 this past week, let out a little secret in an interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN - he's a vegan. 

Clinton, who was known for eating really bad food (remember when he would jog into McDonald's with Secret Service in tow for a quickie Big Mac?), told Gupta that he must be a vegan since he doesn't eat meat, dairy or fish.  That sounds pretty vegan to us.

Clinton, who underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 and had two stents implanted last year, went vegan for his health. He's lost 20 pounds since choosing to "go veg" and said that even at Thanksgiving dinner he only had a bite of turkey.

Here's Clinton's interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta:
