13 Oct – Karena Lam recently revealed that she is now in her second year as a full-fledged vegetarian.
As reported on Mingpao, the actress, who appeared at a fast food restaurant event in Admiralty recently, revealed that she started her vegetarianism by doing it gradually – from avoiding meat only on Mondays, to progressing into a whole vegetarian diet.
"I learned that global warming is becoming worse and decided to do my own part in reducing carbon emission," she said.
Karena also admitted that her health has become much better since she turned to vegetarianism, and that she has become much more energetic in recent years.
"I used to need eight hours of sleep, but now four hours are enough. Maybe it's because a vegetarian diet is easy to digest and it doesn't burden the body so much," she said.
Karena revealed that her two children are also starting on their vegetarian diet, though stressed that she will not force them to follow her example.
As for her husband Steve Yuen, the actress stated, "He eats meat, but he only eats one meal a day. He can't be without meat."
