Ginnifer Goodwin No Longer a Vegan

Ginnifer Goodwin on Giving Up Veganism

The last time Ginnifer Goodwin visited Jimmy Kimmel Live, she was a devoted vegan. But lots have changed: from the sound of it, it seems these days the Something Borrowed star is more about burgers than beans. The actress, who's been animal-free for a couple of years, revealed she's been working meat back into her diet: "I'm always learning and growing and changing," she told Jimmy Kimmel. Check out the clip below to hear the story behind the first animal product she ate and why she's given up veganism.

I agree with GirlA. The choice is Ginnfer's. Not all of us started out vegan, so others should be allowed to come into veganism in their own time. So easy to gloss over the "health issues" so quickly though. But she was rather flippant about it. "Then I scrambled up another one." Officially not a fan because of the attitude about it.

What health problems? I get sick of these dubious health claims. I have yet to hear of a real health issue that bacon helps. And to the idiot who got B12 deficiency and then started eating are an idiot! Take a sublingual B12 and you're fine. Many meat eaters have difficulty absorbing the B12 in animal products and need to get B12 injections. You don't need meat to get B12....however if you're looking for an reason to go back to eating meat without feeling guilty it sure does for a good excuse.

So here's what bugs me about the whole thing: She's worked with animal rights groups, learned about the horrors of animal production and the impact it has on our environment--not to mention our health and yet, she can turn around and have no qualms about eating a meatloaf. I find that sad. Also, it was extremely hypocritical for her to say, "oh, my house is still cruelty-free," yet bring animal flesh into her house and bake it in the oven.

It is a tricky situation- I was vegetarian for 6 years before getting a b12 deficiency, getting tired of the whole thing, and going back to meat eating. Vegetarians sometimes get really defensive if I tell them this, but hey, my body, my health, my choices. I applaud her for being honest!

I have been hesitant to post on this issue. But I do agree with Anon # 13. When it comes to health--and politics aside--we should all listen to our own unique bodies. What works for one may not work for another.

I think this is a perfect example of being flexible with your health, and having health be the ultimate goal. Dogmatic diet agenda's led me into the throws of eating disorder and addiction. When I softened around the edges of my diet rigidity, that is where I found optimal health. I eat meat sparingly, for my blood type, this is better. And I make sure the meat I eat is organic, free range, and comes from sustainable farms.

Although I am vegan, all my friends and family are devout meat eaters, and I have absolutely no problem with that whatsoever. I do not judge others for eating meat, and believe it is completely up to them to put whatever they want into their body. I would just like to say to the person who made the rude protein comment above that she should educate herself a bit more before she goes making fun on vegetarians/vegans. Did you know that the average american gets twice as much protein as they need and that excessive amounts of it can actually deteriorate your bones? Needless to say vegans have plenty of ways to get enough protein through beans, legumes, and veggies, as well as tofu and soy milk, etc.

I really appreciate she's being honest about it. I've been vegetarian for two years and have recently started thinking of going back to eating meat, not because I want to but because my health has been terrible since I went vegetarian. I'm really careful about what I eat, but even when speaking with friends I realised a lot of them had the same experience. But not cool to call her a hypocrite; esp when she talks about being careful about where her food comes from. That's a lot more intellingent than most of my vegetarian friends who don't even care if their makeup's been tested on animals.

Wow - some of you are taking things way to seriously. Meat isn't going to kill her - she didn't say she was eating bacon cheeseburgers every day geez! She mentioned salmon - which is very healthy for you and 'eggs from humanely handled chickens' Vegans are way to sensitive. You can't force your chosen way of life on others. I respect her more for being true to herself and opening her mind.
