She hasn’t quite made the transition yet, but she’s sure that day is coming.
“I don’t eat a lot of it any more but a little… I’m sure that in this transition eventually I won’t eat any meat at all,” Bush said.
Bush will be pairing her future vegetarian diet with exercises like the ones she currently does–like hiking with her dogs– to keep her cardio system in good shape.
“I think you have to make it fun and mix it up and not take it too seriously but try to take care of yourself. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in this country and nobody talks about that so we should all be exercising somewhat just to, you know, keep our tickers healthy.”
Combing her love for physical fitness with a soon to be meatless diet may make Bush the model for preventing heart disease in women. Both processed meats–such as hot dogs and salami–and red meats like pork, beef and lamb have been shown to increase the chance of developing and dying from heart disease.
A plant-based diet, on the other hand, has been shown to prevent and even reverse the effects of heart disease.
