His diet has come a long way from what it was when he was president.

As described in a CNN article:

By the time he reached the White House, Bill Clinton’s appetite was legend. He loved hamburgers, steaks, chicken enchiladas, barbecue and french fries but wasn’t too picky. At one campaign stop in New Hampshire, he reportedly bought a dozen doughnuts and was working his way through the box until an aide stopped him.

Now, former President Clinton is speaking out about his plant-based diet and its significant impact on his heart health. The President now considers himself to be vegan - and he likes what he eats.
