Legendary singer Chaka Kahn has been turning heads lately after dropping 60 pounds.
Her secret? In a recent interview she says she "went off meat, became vegan, stopped all the dairy, stopped all the meat."
Diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes and high blood pressure, Kahn was put on medication last year which she had to take -- until she decided to change her diet. She recently adopted her granddaughter and realized she had to be here for the girl, and said this was her main influence to lose weight and get healthy -- "so I can be here for her."
Kahn undertook a liquid diet for four months -- "My Vitamix was my best friend" -- eating green smoothies and protein smoothies. Then she went vegan.
Today, 60 pounds lighter, she is off all medication and no longer has high blood pressure of Type-2 Diabetes.
No great surprise here. More and more people are discovering you can reverse serious disease and heal yourself by going low-fat plant-based.
