While most people extol the weight-loss virtues of a vegan or vegetarian diet, Megan Fox isn't one of them. The "Transformers" actress says that her commitment to a plant-based eating regimen made her feel too thin. 


"For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee," she told Italian magazine Amica. "But I had lost too much weight."


While Fox's trainer Harley Pasterna says the actress has a "very fast metabolism," it's still possible to embrace a vegan lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight. There are millions of people (and plenty of celebrities) who have been vegans for years without jeopardizing their health in any way. Its sounds to me like Fox would have benefited from a vegan nutritionist to help with achieving the look she wanted. 


Nevertheless, the 25-year-old says she's "eating a bit of everything" and cardio training three times a week. She can next be seen in the upcoming comedy, "Friends with Kids."
