A 37-year-old woman believes her strict vegan diet makes her look 15 years younger.
Alice Austin-Grant, from Hayling Island in Hampshire, says strangers always compliment her on her youthful skin and slim figure.
The mum-of-three is so invested in her plant based lifestyle that she’s banned her pet from eating meat.
She says this makes her pooch look healthier than other dogs.
Alice stopped eating for ethical reasons – and she’s stopped her dog from munching it too.
The dog owner said: “The way we treat animals now, how we are doing it is just horrendous. Who would want to be a part of that? The damage it is causing is astonishing…
“When people say they’re kind and they wouldn’t hurt a fly, and dote on their dog but then they feed them a cow or a pig.
“A pig has got more intelligence than your dog but you’re feeding your dog a pig? It doesn’t make sense.
“Why should another animal be killed to feed my dog? It doesn’t seem right.
“It’s really nice for me to be able to be kind with my diet and be kind with my dog’s diet too.”
And while some have criticised Alice for feeding her dog tofu, she stands by her decision.
She believes the vegan lifestyle is good for her four-legged friend, commenting: “If you just look at him, you can see how healthy he is.
“His coat is immaculate, I don’t even brush him that much, and it just glistens in the sun. It shows that he’s eating well.
“It’s just the fear of the unknown, I think, because people will do that with me and my dietary choices too.
“When I got Diesel, I did a lot of research into if a dog could do well on a vegan diet. I didn’t want to be back around meat again.
“You look at a tiny chihuahua and you think, they’re not going to go and eat a whole cow, are they?”
Alice adds that her plant based plan has left her looking like a 22-year-old.
She aid: “I’ve only just joined the gym now and people always comment that I am strong and thin and that my skin is really good, which I credit to my diet.
“I look a lot younger than I am too. People usually pitch me at least 10 to 15 years younger.
“I do have really good genes from my mum but it’s largely down to diet how much energy I have and that I don’t need to drink as much coffee as I used to…
“When I started to change my diet and my friends saw the difference, they started to look at their diets as well – especially dairy.”
