‘My health tanked on a vegan diet’: Bear Grylls gives insight into his diet – as he admits he is ‘against vegetables’ after giving up veganism

He’s known for eating whatever he needs to in order to survive out in the jungle.

But Bear Grylls, 48, has opened up about his day-to-day diet, admitting that despite being a former advocate for veganism – he has recently changed his tune. 

The explorer, real moniker Edward Michael Grylls, explained that he is now ‘against vegetables’ following a battle with Covid-19, where his vegan diet ‘tanked’ his recovery.

The TV personality was formerly a massive advocate for a natural diet enriched with vegetables, even writing a book named Fuel for Life with recipes.

But chatting to GQ Magazine, Bear explained that he no longer eats vegetables or nuts and goes meat-focused.

‘Super against nuts. And against grains, wheat, and vegetables. They affected my health negatively. I was a massive advocate of the vegan lifestyle for years, and wrote a book on it, but my health tanked on it,’ he told the publication.

Admitting that contracting Covid was the turning point for this, he continued: ‘When I got COVID a couple years ago, I doubled down on what I thought was healthy—raw juice, vegetables—and got mega-sore kidneys, almost kidney stones.’

‘The more research I’ve done, I’ve noticed raw vegetables are really not good for you. So I’ve started incorporating quality grass-fed steak and liver.’

Admitting that the change has made eating more fun, the adventurer explains that it’s not just what you eat, but when you eat it that makes a difference to him. 

Explaining that he has done intermittent fasting for ‘a couple of years now’, Bear details that he skips breakfast and has his first meal at around 11 or 12 o’clock.
