Ne-Yo says he's shed 30 pounds since going vegan.
The 39-year-old singer-songwriter has been following a plant based diet - in which he eats no meat, or any food derived from animals such as dairy products or eggs - for around two years now, and credits the lifestyle change with completely turning his life around.
He said: ''I am loving it. I genuinely am. It's been about two years. More energy, my face clears up, weight falls off. I lost, like, 30 pounds!''
The 'Miss Independent' hitmaker first made the dietary change after watching the investigative documentary 'What the Health' - which explores the relationship between government agencies, big business in the food industry and national health problems including chronic diseases - and says he was so ''p***ed off'' after watching it that he vowed to change his ways.
He added: ''Initially, I watched the documentary 'What The Health', and to put it frankly, it p***ed me off. It really did. I was like, let me get this straight: The person giving you the disease and the person fighting the disease are in bed together? To hell with y'all.
''Out of spite, I went vegan because I was like, Y'all don't care.''
Now, Ne-Yo says going vegan is one of the best things he's ever done, and even credits the change with helping to ''reverse'' the pain he used to suffer with in his knees.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, he said: ''A friend told me a plant-based diet could reverse the effects of heart disease, cancer. I had tendinitis in both my knees - two weeks, brand new knees, like it never happened. I kid you not! I love it.''
Who needs a lover anyway?
These albums are not nearly as appreciated as they should be.

They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
