Sultry Megan Fox has become the latest Hollywood celebrity to give up on a Vegan diet. She says she lost too much weight after swearing off bread, sugar and coffee.
Natalie Portman and Angelina Jolie both said they were backing off a strict vegan diet. Portman was pregnant, at the time, and said avoiding all animal products no longer suited her.
Jolie said the diet left her feeling malnourished. She ate a high-carb, low-protein diet while filming her action movie “Salt” to maintain her weight while shooting her high-voltage stunt scenes.

Fox said she stuck with her vegan diet, until she felt she was getting too skinny. Her weight loss raised eyebrows among the tabloids.
“For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee,” Fox told Italian Magazine Amica in its latest issue.
“But I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything. I train three times a week doing circuit training with my trainer Harvey Pasternak.”
Pasternak has worked with such celebrities such as John Mayer, Jessica Simpson, Orlando Bloom, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, and Halle Berry.
He also writes on diet and released his latest book last year called the “5 Factor World Diet.”
It details the healthy habits and diets of the world’s 10 healthiest countries. It’s all based the number five.
He believes people should eat five meals per day, five days a week of exercise made up of five phases each five minutes long. Each meal has five basic parts and dieters are allowed five cheat days every five weeks.
Pasternak first wrote 5 Factor Fitness in 2004, and expanded the dietary part into the 2007.
Fox is famous for her looks and body and currently reps for Armani jeans. She’ll next appear in a comedy role in Judd Apatow’s “This Is 40,” a companion piece to “Knocked Up.”
The former “Transformers” star, also known for her distinctive tattoos, said she also has decided to erase her inner forearm tattoo of Marilyn Monroe’s head.
“It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life,” she told the magazine.
