Now it’s Bill Thinton: Former U.S.
President shows off trim look
after switching to vegan
diet two years ago

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/17/2012 11:44:06 AM

He was once known for his love of junk food. But Bill Clinton´s efforts to slim down have clearly paid off. The former US President, 66, looked remarkably trim as he left a plush London restaurant on Thursday night. Mr Clinton had been enjoying a dinner with actor Kevin Spacey at the upmarket Scott´s seafood restaurant in Mayfair, after giving a speech in the capital. The former president, formerly known for his love of burgers, barbecue and junk food, changed to a strict vegan diet in 2010 after fears over his health. Clinton, 66, had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004

Comments:
He looks ill on these photos. The brown 3-piece suit doesn´t help.

He looks great for 66, and has probably added years to his life by becoming a vegan. Americans are so surrounded by tub-o-lards that someone with a healthy BMI looks ´frail´ or ´ill´ to them.

Yeah, the Rhodes ´Scholar´ who cheered with the Russian Communists against America, who swindled people with whitewater, who stood by while AIDS infected blood from prisoners of the Arkansas prison system was sold to a blood bank in Canada, who took bribes from a Red Chinese general to allow missile tech to be sold to China, who made low sulfur coal acreage in the US southwest into a national ´park´ after a contribution from southeast Asian mining owners, who had private thugs threaten witnesses, who used state troopers to set up women for his sexual assualts, who lied to congress under oath, who treated the WTC bombing, etc. etc.... Yeah, I´m sure he looked great. The fawning, propagandist, neocommunist news media is the root of most of the ills of the world.

Vegan diet? Ok, whatever. Looks like a possible STD flareup, or worse. bubba looks sick in these photos, as in really sick, and they´re claiming it´s because he´s eating healthy for once in his life.

Sure. Nothing like a healthy diet to make a guy look like crap.

I also heard somewhere that he did not have sex with that woman, monica lewinsky.

#8, My Niece is a Vegan and ended up in the hospital with severe stomach problems. It is definitely not a healthy life style. Vegetarian is better as it allows for cheese and eggs. Too much soy has shown to be bad for you. And to #2., no one is jealous of vegans that I know, and I know a lot of Atkins followers who are fit, healthy and happy. Me being one. We are not all "tubs of lard."

So he eats in an upscale London restaurant with Kevin Spacey: What does he order? Pinto beans al Nicoise, apple cubes al Provincal and tomatoes Milanese washed down with a Perrier? Spacey probably had a filet with a bottle of Cabernet.

Glad to see other posters cite a chunk of Clinton´s specific negatives. I just didn´t have it in me today to take another Clinton muck-wallow.

So I´ll just summarize as follows: Bill Clinton has no clean end by which he might be picked up.

And I´ll exit with an observation on veganism [or whatever it might be called]: "Vegetables are what food eats."

Hat tip to ALF. Insight is insight, whatever the source.

Why are vegans so smug?

The air of superiority about this strange lifestyle, and condemnation of everyone who eats a normal sensible diet as being "a tub of lard", is offputting to the max.

Does it make them feel good about themselves, make up for other deficits?

He does look ill. I have a 90 year uncle who looks far better.

Whoa! He is not a vegan. He eats seafood.

Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.

http://www.vrg.org/nutshell/vegan.htm#what

I´m surprised the vegans among us didn´t catch the bit about seafood and the omission of fish and seafood from his "diet list". Tsk, tsk.

And tell me there is no leather in his shoes, no wool (and maybe silk) in his suit and other clothing, no animal by-products in his soap?

He is a kind of vegeterian. Kind of. Sort of. If you don´t look too closely.

I know a few vegetarians who were told by their doctors that they must eat some meat. These were not vegans, but vegetarians. They ate cheese and eggs, but the doc said it wasn´t good enough. These women are cancer survivors.

High protein is the best diet going, IMO.

He looks like a gargoyle.

Vegetarians, and especially vegans, are more likely to go blind due to lack of protein. There is also evidence that such a diet can actually cause the brain to shrink. And no amount of beans and rice or soy protein comes close to supplying the protein that meat gives to the body.

Ever wonder why the vast majority of vegetarians and vegans are libs? Now you know - shrunken brain = shrunken intelligence.

If you look at the entire animal world you´ll see that the eyes of carnivores are generally located on the front of the head, to improve the ability to hunt. See humans, dogs, cats, owls etc. The vegetarians animals are the prey and have eyes located on the sides of the head so that they can graze and still keep an eye out for the predators. See horses, deer, rabbits, etc. It´s not natural for a human to be a vegetarian. I always laugh when I hear vegetarians talk about the glories of ´natural´ foods.

He still has those long, boney fingers. You know, the ones he poked in your face (from the TV) and said "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky." May not be an exact quote, but close enough. It´s been awhile.

I think one of the reasons he looks frail and sickly is because of damage from the heart operation. I read that 50% or more of heart surgery patients suffer from brain damage after being on a heart-lung machine.
These patients suffer from memory loss and a changed personality in mild cases. The medical profession even has a name for this common condition, it is called being a "pump head". I think it is a national scandal.

#35 - OK that was an inelegant choice and I admit it. Should have used Mark Steyn´s phrase ´lardbuttus americanus´ instead? Just kidding.

Say you are equally offended by the comparison of vegans to AIDS and cancer victims, ill and near death etc.

Not smug at all, just feel a little annoyed when people who get short of breath after climbing a few steps think of me, a long distance runner, as unhealthy :-) and I am in the upper half of normal weight range (BMI 23, normal being 18.5-24.9).

Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Daphne du Maurier ´overlooked´
by literary critics, her son says

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

WATCH LIVE: First total lunar eclipse of
2014 dawns as the BLOOD MOON rises

A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a dark blood red tonight. Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
