Venus Williams says she is now a vegan

Former world no. 1 Venus Williams says she has turned into a vegan as she comes to terms with Sjorgen's Syndrome. In an interview to CBS earlier this week, Venus said, "I'm not perfect, so I forgive myself when I make mistakes and I do a lot of juicing as well, a lot of wheat grass shots...lots of fresh juices and things like that." "Dry eyes and dry mouth are the hallmark symptoms, but fatigue can be so heavy that sitting in a chair is a huge effort.

So, as a professional athlete, if you have fatigue, then that's tough. You can also have joint pain...issues with your internal systems." "I've made huge improvements since I was first diagnosed, so that has been huge for me, and it's a journey that I continue on, but definitely changing my diet has made a big difference," she said.
