In recent years, Jessie J has overhauled her diet after suffering from health issues.
A vegan diet is deprived of animal products, which requires discipline and determination, and is definitely not for everyone. However, Jessie J has revealed exactly what has motivated her to follow the strict diet plan, which has helped her to manage chronic pain that she experienced due to fertility issues.
In a recent interview with Plant Based News, the pop singer revealed how she changed her diet after her doctors told her that she would never be able to conceive, which she still refuses to accept. She said, “All women and men go through fertility issues and it’s something that’s very empowering for me to talk about.”
After undergoing certain tests, Jessie J said that she was advised to undergo hysterectomy if she could not manage her chronic pain. Rather, she got determined and took matters into her own hands.
The Voice judge said, “I decided to manage the pain and do it naturally. So four years ago I cut out sugar from my diet to try and stop bacteria from building up in my body. Once I cut out sugar, I realized how much I began to enjoy food when it was good for me and it was balancing out everything, my health, my moods, my sleep.”
Two years later, she eliminated meat from her diet and then after a year, she went vegan.
She has admitted that she still has a lot to know about a vegan diet since she started a year ago. She said she has been learning everything about it, adding, “I’m at the beginning of this journey.” Jessie J added, “It’s about me trying to inspire a younger generation to love themselves, love their bodies, and love the world.”
