Michael Clarke Duncan appears in new PETA campaign: Actor credits veg lifestyle for improved health and clearer conscience

The Green Mile star Michael Clarke Duncan made a decision that so people have done before; he decided to change his health through diet.

The former meat eater was suffering from health issues like many other Americans are facing now. He went veg and now, 3 years into his vegetarian lifestyle, Michael wants to share his experience with others.

Duncan had this to say, "The best thing about being a vegetarian for me, number one is I know I'm not harming any animals. The number two thing is increased strength. I'm a lot stronger than I was when I was eating meat."

He goes on to say, "Don't think that you have to have these gigantic steaks to get your protein. The protein you put in from the beans, legumes, fresh fruits, and vegetables will last way longer, and you'll get more out of it than you will in that 12 ounces of meat."

Have a look at Michael's interview with PETA:

Laeticia Butler | @Vegwritingmomma | Facebook | Blog Baltimore, MD After suffering with health issues for two years, Laeticia became a vegan and was able to go from barely walking to running half marathons. She became well aware of the cruelty to animals through research during her life change. In doing so, Laeticia discovered a newfound love and respect for animals and works hard to teach her son why we don't eat them. She is currently training for her first marathon. One of Laeticia's goals as a writer and blogger is to help motivate others to living a healthier lifestyle through a healthy diet and fitness.
