Apparently, veganism is becoming a thing in Hollywood.

Comedian Sheryl Underwood is the latest in a growing list of stars to adopt the radical lifestyle change.

She announced the news on The Talk and elaborated on the details with TV Guide.

“I’m not trying to be trendy and my goal is not to give up meat forever, but I want a lifestyle change,” said Underwood, an avid bacon lover. “I want to lower my blood pressure and jump-start my metabolism—and do it all naturally. People think I picked February to go vegan because it’s the shortest month. No! I’m doing it as a Valentine to me!”

She went on to say that her co-host Sarah Gilbert’s vegan book also inspired her new challenge. It doesn’t also hurt that Gilbert is a size three, she says. “When you’re a vegan, you lose weight, right?”
