Famous survivalist Bear Grylls is publicly acknowledging how “wrong” he was to push for a meatless diet.
The “Man vs. Wild” star revealed he is now “embarrassed” he published a vegan cookbook, but going back to meat has been a “game-changer” for him.
“I was vegan quite a few years ago,” Grylls told UK Telegraph. “In fact, I wrote a vegan cookbook, and I feel a bit embarrassed because I really promoted that,” Grylls said. “I thought that was good for the environment and I thought it was good for my health. And through time and experience and knowledge and study, I realized I was wrong on both counts.”

Grylls shunned his vegan ways in November and began eating red meat again. Now, he said his body has “never been better.”

He thought vegetables were helping him but realized you get much more “nutrient density” from meat.
“I’ve tried to listen to my body more, tried to listen to nature, and I don’t miss vegetables at all,” he explained. “I don’t go near them and I’ve never felt stronger, my skin’s never been better, and my gut’s never been better.”
He said he’s also fuller now.
“And I find now I’m always full when I’m eating so much meat and eggs and butter and fruit and honey – I’m never hungry. I go out and I’ll order three burgers and get rid of all the buns and the fries and just have the burgers. I don’t crave junk food,” Grylls concluded.
