Things to know about Gucci Mane

Gucci Mane tries to go vegan (and fails)

Gucci Mane has made some major adjustments to his diet and lifestyle in recent years, resulting in a whopping 100-pound weight loss. 

“I eat squash, which I never ate before, along with zucchini; I eat a lot of cashews, peanuts, bananas, apples, and I love salmon and chicken,” The Alabama-born rapper said in a 2016 interview with Vogue. “I try to eat very clean, and I drink about 120 to 130 ounces of water a day. I mark everything I eat on a chart so I can keep track of my daily intake.”

But when Diddy tried to introduce his friend to veganism, the plan quickly backfired.

In a hilarious video encounter posted on Jermaine Dupri’s Instagram page, Gucci is served a full vegan meal at 5 Star Island in Miami, complete with “a vegan BLT, vegan bacon with some marinated tomatoes, micro greens and fresh vegan mayo on a gluten-free bun.”

“I don't know about this one,” a regretful Gucci says as his wife and Diddy urge him to just try it. “I might end up with the burger.”

Maybe a trip to Atlanta’s Slutty Vegan, which has won over the tastebuds of Tyler Perry, Tamar Braxton, Taraji P. Henson and more, might change Gucci’s mind.

Pinky Cole, owner of the plant-based burger joint, has fed thousands since opening the restaurant in January.
